Soulja Boy is selling rebranded versions of cheap video game console emulators, IGN has spotted.

The 28-year-old rapper, best known for his 2007 hit "Crank That (Soulja Boy)," launched two consoles online over the weekend. The SouljaGame Console and the SouljaGame Handheld are now available to purchase via Soulja Boy's SouljaWatch website for $149.99 (reduced from $199.99, bargain hunters) and $99.99 (reduced from $199.99), respectively.

The main console appears to be an emulator capable of running PlayStation, NeoGeo, PC, Sega, Game Boy Advance, and NES games, as well as “SouljaGames,” and comes with 800 games pre-installed. The handheld apparently runs Switch, 3DS, Vita, NeoGeo, and Game Boy Color and Advance games, and has 3,000 games installed.

As The Verge points out, the huge number of preinstalled games makes it unlikely that the system runs licensed copies. More likely is that the console runs ROMs instead, which could place Soulja Boy in legal jeopardy. Nintendo is currently suing LoveROMS and LoveRetro for “brazen and mass-scale infringement of Nintendo’s intellectual property rights.”

Twitter users also pointed out that both consoles are not original and can be purchased more cheaply elsewhere online. On ANBERNIC’s website, the sale price of the handheld emulator is $59.99 and the console is currently priced at $79.49. They can both be found on Amazon for lower prices as well.
