Konami Japan has released a photo of the custom PlayStation 3 design, dedicated to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
It would look totally better without the blue
Hideous? Hideo...us? um... the MGR PS3 looks totally fine, and actually pretty good. if anything's hideous it's that new PS3 Slim and not the custom MGR colored edition.
Should've put the Blue on the sides and kept the top plain black with the Zai batsu font. Shit would have look sexy lmao.
Looks fine to me; besides, this is likely tailored to Japanese tastes, not Western tastes.
I think it looks pretty attractive personally. This is the first time and the last time I go to this "igo" website however.
WTF... I was expecting a monster of a console. Something as ugly as an Infiniti QX56. But it's just a normal PS3 with matte dark blue instead of black.
It would have looked better if it was the Slim model and not the Super Slim model. The color is not a problem, it's the Super Slim, that makes me wonder.
It does look plain Jane. Hideous? Might be a little to harsh.
Yea, especially considering that Hideo had nothing to do with it. ...I'll show myself out.
I see what you did there...
Looks good to me. I love blue.
Agreed. If I didn't already have a PS3 I'd probably try to import this 1.
Looks fine to me. Maybe a bit more detail wouldn't hurt.
A blood red would look better.
It's hideous much like the game itself.
Metal Gear Rising is looking to do a lot more for the MGS series than DmC is doing for the Devil May Cry series. After playing the DmC demo, nothing but a bad taste was left in my mouth. The drastic, stylistic change does not suit this series. The darker tone and piss poor writing (fuck you, fuck you, fuck you; really?) also take the series in the wrong direction. Gameplay is solid and really fun, but everything else is rather poor.
I wasn't a dmc fan before and I'm not after the demo either, it locked up my ps3 so I stopped trying to play it.
damn, you people find any stupid little reason not to like stuff...
Shame that some people don't know the difference between a spin off and main entry.
Agreed. Which is why I click 'agreed' xD
I have to disagree @League of Draven DMC def is not respecting or bettering the franchise of Devil May Cry. Actually they basically said screw the hardcore Devil May Cry fans to catering for the casual new fans. Catering for the new fans also paved way for the Ninja Theory/Heavenly Sword fanatics to come and support this piece of trash. Seriously Base stance with Triangle button, Angel Stance (L2 button Range attack, weaker weapon) and Demon (R2 Button, Powerful Axe but slowed gameplay) stances..... Hmmm sounds a eerily familiar to Heavenly Sword's gameplay mechanics of Speed stance (Normal Stance Square button) Power Stance (R1 button, Heavy Weapon but slowed gameplay) Range Stance (L1 Button speedy but weaker attacks) suffering from the same laggy response controls that Heavenly Sword suffers from with their controls. Sounds like Ninja Theory had more control over the game than they led on. Like I said this is not faithful to the Devil May Cry Series at all!
It's funny to have dislikes but have no comments based on the dislikes. Essentially, If you've played Heavenly Sword and played DMC, the button scheme/layout is essentially the same (Like I mentioned above in previous comment). Same laggy unresponsive controls, same weapon based stances and button mashing just to get through the stage. Play the HD Collection and Devil May Cry 4 and then try the DMC demo and try and tell me you can't feel/see the difference!
League_of_Draven... I have no words for you.
WTF?! DmC sucks! What are you talking about respecting a franchise? They raped everything that made Devil May Cry an awesome game!
How in the blue hell is DmC bettering a series? It's completely disregarding the old series and it's being made by a mediocre dev. The demo is crap and shows how much DmC is a huge downgrade of the originals. MGR is being made by guys who have been making amazing games since the PS2 era.
Judging from most comments, glad to see I'm not the only to disagree with the post. I think it looks really nice. And the controller as well.
Yeah it looks pretty good to me. Not sure how that could be considered "hideous".
the guy is probably an xbot fangirl dont pay attention,kojima said the ps3 version will be the best compared to the xbox
That controller definitely is sexy as hell.
The controller looks bad ass. I hope I can get the controller separately.
Looks alright to me, but the new ps3 is kinda small for any custom design, i went with the second gen model again for Black Friday
Unremarkable, yes, hideous, no.
I'm sure Yoji Shinkawa could have drawn a no-handed Raiden (sporting his trenchoat of course) with a katana in his mouth traversing a path of fallen soldiers and or Gekko in a landscape portrayal. The outlines of the sketch could be blue but left transparent to give it flair. The controller.....I maybe would have had a side view of Raiden's human face on the D-pad side and a picture of his now robotic visage on the other so it can look like a stand off with his inner demons.
I just don't like that new PS3. The slim looked nice and I even like the fat one. I think it's the top loading. That split in the middle of the top looks horrendous for real. Slot loading would've probably made this new slim much more attractive.
A better design would to have Raiden on it or like Lightning decals.
Not to piss in anyone cereal, but that is just shitty looking. Like no effort went into it, Looks last minute.
well i think it looks nice, probably because ive only been seeing black consoles and not other special ones around here
I hate black & Blue (Police)
the console colorway sucks however controller looks cool.
I like the controller!
I don't consider the current look of the console hideous, but more like it was rushed and little thought went into it. If they made the console transparent like the controller that would be a improvement. Maybe add some LED lights to make it glow or something along those lines to make it look electric. That would be something I would expect. Similar to this ps3 slim, but with a little more added to it.
I think it actually looks awesome, but hey we all have different tastes.
I'd be jealous, actually. Looks pretty sweet to me. The only ugly I see can be said about all non-phat PlayStation 3s.
It looks pretty sweet to me. I'd buy it if I didn't have a ps3 already.
I like it, not the best but i like a little splash of color
I like it!
I guess opinions on this are actually pretty split. Some love it, others hate it. I personally like it. I'd get it if it weren't for the Japanese exclusivity.
Reminds me of the original PS2 blue boxes.
I think it actually looks elegant. I like it. Not too interested in the game though, to me it looks like complete shit. It looked great back when Koji Pro was developing it, and it took place between MGS 2 & 4. It was supposed to show what happened when Raiden went to Area 51 to save Sunny, and how he became a cyborg. Then PG came in and ruined everything, and shit all over the ending to MGS4.
I honestly think it looks pretty cool. Nice shade of blue as well, but of course that is just my opinion. The controller looks like it fits with the overall theme as well. Obviously the author is trying to create a flame bait article but failed miserably considering a lot of people disagree with his opinion. Hate on the game if you want, but to create an article solely for expressing how "hideous" this MGR PS3 is clearly desperate attempt at getting traffic to the site. Just think about it, what is hideous about it? Is the blue to light or too dark?
It would look better if it wasn't done on this version of the PS3. Should of made it on the first slim...
OK WHAT.IS.WRONG with this console? Serious question. Has everyone turned into a whiny b***h all of a sudden or is this too only a PS3-hate thing? I mean it's a PS3 that has some blue on it WTF? Who the eff cares enough to go apesh*t over something like this.
I think it looks pretty good. subtly designed. This guy has no sense of style.
Looks badass to me.
looks good to me, i actually like it
I like the controller
I would totally get one, but that has to be Japan only...right?
It's actually an improvement over the all-black PS3.
eh, I think it looks fine. I actually recently around the time of Hurricane Sandy held a PS3 Slim 2.0. It's nicer than people think it is in person. Its a hell of a lot lighter too. I'm sure this bundle looks fine in person too. Its a cheap LE though, the console should be more like the controller.
I just want that bad A** controller!!!
