Over the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed a movement building for a gaming product called the G155 in my Twitter feed. The G155 is a mobile gaming unit that looks like something that came from NASA, or the infamous briefcase that holds the controls to our weapons of mass destruction. I must admit that the Twitter advertising from @projectgaems, @Gaems_Prod1gy_X, @RickMalambri, and @LisaMalambri definitely got me intrigued in the project. With that being said I clicked on over to the ProjectGAEMS.com website to give this G155 device a serious look see.
What I found could be one of the greatest inventions of all-time for gamers that like to have their tools on hand regardless of where they’re at. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve personally lugged around a 32″ LCD TV, Xbox 360, Controllers, and even a sound system at times when I had to be away from my gaming lair. To be honest with you it was a pain in the a*s, and not to mention all of those pieces of hardware take up a lot of f*cking space when you go on a vacation in a car that is already packed to the brim with other necessities. Recently, I’ve given up on bringing my mini-entertainment system with me whenever I travel for extended periods of time, but with this new G155 mobile gaming unit on the horizon I may have found the solution I’ve been looking for.

The G155 is essentially a rugged briefcase that contains a 15.5″ LED HD screen with stereo speakers, a place for your Xbox 360/PS3 Slim, and the accessories needed to complete a gaming setup (Controllers, Power Brick, Cables, etc). The G155 is small enough to be carried on a plane, so it’s not like you’re going to be lugging around an entertainment center on your back. The best part about the G155 is that it only costs $299! Considering that there’s an HD TV crammed into the G155’s guts I’d say that’s a fair price. I wish this thing was around a few years ago when I explicitly purchased an $800 32″ HD TV just to bring on long trips so I could get my next-gen gaming on in style.

For those of you that are interested in pre-ordering the G155 you can use this link to place your order. I’m pretty much leaning towards picking one up, but I may wait awhile to see how well they hold up during the initial release. Considering I don’t do nearly as much traveling as I used to I don’t foresee needing the G155 until the early part of Summer. If, or more like when, I grab one of these magnificent mobile gaming units I’ll make sure to give you the full report. Until then I urge you to check out all of the G155 details below. You’ve been given a reason to never miss a gaming session again…
