Soulja Boy’s new gaming consoles have been pulled off the market after their release early last month!
Soulja Boy claims he “didn’t have a choice” in removing his self-named SouljaGame Console and SouljaGame Handheld from his website. The new product supposedly contained more than 800 and 3,000 built-in games, respectively. Not surprising to techies, things all came to an end recently when the “Crank That” rapper announced they were no more as he took to Twitter.
“I had to boss up, I didn’t have a choice,” he tweeted Monday.
Accused by many as a knock-off Nintendo, the 28-year-old attempted to clear up rumors of getting sued by Nintendo a week ago. The tweet has since been deleted.
“For anyone who thinks that Nintendo is going to sue me you’re retarded,” he wrote.
“Nothings going to happen everything is legit. My console isn’t going anywhere trust me.”
Sadly enough, the removal of his consoles has many thinking Nintendo threatened legal action but no further details have been revealed. As usual, the Twitter trolls came in full force once the Atlanta native tweeted. Check out some of the tweets below:
It wasn't even his console. Its a Chinese knockoff that he bought wholesale, slapped his name on, and advertised it for more than you'd pay on banggood

Gaming publication GamesRadar scrutinized the legitimacy of the consoles and said they seemed to be the same as the devices released from Abernic.
