Digital Music, Gaming, MP3 players

He’s decided to release his latest collection of bleepy, distorted work on a NES cartridge, which is yours in exchange for $22. The pic to the left there is what you see on your NES screen when you boot up the cart – Alex’s basic 1985-spec MP3 player.

You can see a YouTube preview of the NES interface here, or just send him some money via Paypal to buy a copy on his web site if you’re generous with money and into the whole retro scene.
