Take Your Consoles on the Road With the Gaems G155 Mobile Gaming Environment

Portable gaming has always been thought to be a rather watered down version of real gaming, at least in terms of portable titles as compared to their console counterparts. That’s not to say portable games are bad by any means, but what if you could take your consoles with you and not have to worry about them getting damaged?

If you can plug something into the wall, you can operate the new GaemsG155. This portable gaming suitcase comes equipped with a full HD monitor, built-in speakers, and storage for your controllers and cords. This case is essentially all you need to take your PS3 or Xbox 360 with you on the road.

While sitting at EVO 2011, I was approached by David Scarpitta from DasCheap.com who dropped this lovely bit of tech off at the booth and asked if we would demo it for the day. Obviously I jumped at the chance to hook a system up to this and give it a go.

The case itself isn’t too terribly heavy and has two incredibly secure latches on either side, so there really isn’t any reason to fear having your system fall out. However, if for some reason both of the latches come undone, there are two giant Velcro straps holding your baby securely in place. Simply put, this thing is a bomb shelter for your console.

Hooking everything up was quite a snap and took less time than it would to jack into your TV at home. The G155 has one HDMI input just below the screen, which cuts down on cord clutter quite a bit. Two mesh pouches flank either side of the console, which rests on a soft foam pad, where you can store your controllers and cords during travel.

The screen itself is recessed quite a bit back in the case and this actually serves quite a useful purpose. Seeing as how it sits further back, there is very little glare that reflects back, which ultimately gives you a very nice, crisp picture.To further customize your viewing experience, pretty much everything about the screen image and quality is adjustable to ensure you get the best picture possible.

The sound quality was rather hard to analyze properly due to the overall volume of the convention center, but as far as I could tell, the speakers were rather high quality and pumped out a decent amount of noise.

If you find yourself on the road a lot and don’t want to settle for the available portable systems, this case may be just what you are looking for. It may not be the fully self-powered, portable console we are looking for, but as long as you can find an outlet, you can play. Just make sure you get a very short HDMI cable because there isn’t a whole lot of room for cords to lay behind the system, unless you don’t mind cord clutter.

The Gaems G155 is available at DasCheap! for a cool $290.
