Rapper Soulja Boy Is Now Hawking Cheap Russian-made Electronics

After releasing his SouljaWatch earlier this week, Soulja Boy continues his entrepreneurial adventures by announcing his new SouljaGame Console and SouljaGame Handheld, both of which are now available on his official site.

But before you decide to drop $100 or $150 on a video game product from the “Crank That” rapper, it’s worth looking into some of the questionable aspects of his emulation consoles. As Gamesradar and Polygon both point out, the box console advertises 800 built-in games, like a retro ‘plug-n-play' type system, and the handheld advertises 3,000—both with access to PlayStation, NeoGeo, PC, SEGA, Game Boy Advance, and NES games.

However, there is no official list of games included on the systems, and very little other information about the products. Instead of creating his own console, the 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, is either reselling these systems at a markup with his name on them, or worked out a deal with the manufacturer of these products, Anbernic.

And Soulja Boy’s consoles are far from exclusive. Exact versions of the Anbernic design can be purchases on AliExpress under different names, or on Amazon. At AliExpress, people can buy the console for $105.99 and the handheld for $72.99, compared to Soulja Boy’s markup.

Regardless of the arrangement, Way is bursting with joy over his new branded game systems. “To the first person that purchased my console you just brought tears to my eyes,” he tweeted Tuesday. “Tears of joy!” He's also claims to have made $250,000 off the product in just 24 hours.

Yeah I'm sure people are rushing out to buy this junk!
