Another F00 f00 creation: SNES gamepad-controlled PSP Slim
Prolific PSP modder F00 f00 has dropped us a line to let us know about his latest modding triumph. You won’t find any of the usual flashing LEDs in this one, though. Hit the full article for an eclectic mix of old school and new in one cool modded package.

This particular PSP mod is a custom-built job commissioned for a girl with limited use of one of her hands. Predictably, that would make it hard for her to use a PSP. F00 f00 says she has some mad skills with a SNES controller, though, and so the SNES gamepad-controlled PSP Slim mod was born. Here’s F00 f00’s account of the modding process:
This mod was achieved by adding a small socket to the back of the psp ( the socket was sent to me by a friend some time ago so I dont have a part number. I believe it was intended for a cell phone). I taped all of the relevant points on the psp mother board (some of which where horribly close together and tiny. Actually not some ALL of them where), and then ran these to the socket.
I used a file and dremal to cut a whole in the back of the psp and the socket fitted in with a satisfying *click*. I then put together a custom cable and plug that would fit the newly attached socket. This was then wired to the snes controllers pcb (attached directly to the traces of each button. And thats about it.
Don’t you just love it when people help spread the joys of gaming? I do. Anyway, F00 f00 also posted a video of the mod in action. Check it out below.
