Thread: HARD SHELL GAMEBOY CASE FOR iPHONE

  1. #1
    Default HARD SHELL GAMEBOY CASE FOR iPHONE
    IPWNCASE.COM : ON SALE NOW!


    Hey guys. I am a freelance designer and I spent a lot of time and effort (and my poor designer monies!) to make a true, hard shell, classic Gameboy case for the iPhone.

    Currently only the iPhone 3g / 3gs has been produced, however I only need to sell about 200 units to afford production of the iPhone 4g and iPad. iPods will follow as well.

    >>>>>> YOU MAY PLACE AN ORDER NOW <<<<<<

    Here are some glamor shots, ENJOY! (and please tell your friends... )

    How is this gonna work? Is it like a case you slide your phone into while not using it? Seems kinda pointless to only see a very small portion of the screen. It does look awesome though

    No, no...

    This is a protective case. it covers the backside and edges. full access to the screen

    I thought about this alot before proceeding. My general feedback i got when i posed the same question was to go for it until i get a 'cease and desist' notice (if any) from Nintendo.

    I contacted Nintendo about using their imagery / logos before i began, and they responded by telling me that they do not give anyone permission for anything, by which they mean that they can not say "Yes" or "No."

    They told me i should seek my own legal council before proceeding - which I have done, which brings me back to the advice of just going for it until they ask me to stop. They wouldnt immediately sue me.

    One little freelance designer in comparison to the giant conglomerate that is Nintendo is sooooooooooo small time; I doubt they really care.

    Besides, for them its basically free advertising.


    Think of how much Nintendo products there are out there (shirts and clothing alone exist in mass amounts)... Most of those people created their products without permission.


    edit: @sekazi - Actually even though i have spent a lot of time thinking this through, your comment has led me to remove their logo and replace it with iPWN! just to be sure..... so only the first 500 units will have the original logo.

    Man that is great!

    They are ready to go, I am just waiting for them to arrive..... (I've been having to speak engrish to my overseas production.... sometimes it takes some extra explaining and time )

    Ha!

    Well, there isn't really any testing to be done... The case model already exists and its just being retrofitted with my design.

    Unfortunately the iPhone 4G case costs twice as much to make and the minimum order is twice as many as the 3G(S) version.... so i will have to sell some of those first.




    However........

    Rest assured that I am not going to charge ridiculous amounts of money for these cases like so many people do with their drop-shipped wholesale crap. (I particularly dont like the guy who made the Gameboy vinyls....waaay to much money for what it is, but hey everyone has a mortgage.)

    My 3G(S) case will be just under $20.

    Now i understand that sounds like a little more than it should but that will include tax / shipping / processing (ie: my time). $25 for international



    I'm not sure about the 4G case's cost yet but rest assured it will be affordable for everyone.

    Best Regards.

    $20 is cheaper than most cases out there. I do not have a 3GS anymore and would have to wait for the iPhone 4 version.

    It will be interesting to see the case when you get it.

    A cool idea which would never happen is to flip the case to the screen and have a emulator on the jailbroken iPhone and make the button work for a real gameboy experience.

    Actually there is a great Winterboard theme that turns your screen into a classic gameboy if you are jail-broken. I don't have the iPhone 4 yet so i don't know if its compatible....but its really cool.


    here is the theme

    edit: actually, i think that is in within reality, a case with buttons and such... i have a lot of peers who went to design school with me who are very talented. with enough finances....

    So looking at the pictures, the gameboy is the BACK of the phone. Is there anything covering the front? Or is it totally open like the incipio feather?
