Playstation 4 in Brushed Steel

The PlayStation 4 is a beautiful looking console. It's unique slanted or "italic" design, small size, light weight and the way it curves makes it a geometrical marvel. I'm probably exaggerating here but that's how much it physically looks better than the Xbox One. The Xbox One, while bulky, has a charm of its own. As nice as the PS4 looks, it's only available in one plain color, black. While we wait for Sony to release more variations, some people have taken the matter into their own hands.

it's alright, I don't mind the ps4 as is. Maybe more of that reflective plastic quarter of the system wouldn't hurt instead of the black textured case on 3/4 of the system. I like shiny things

It's horrible IMO, and it's NOT brushed steel.


Yeah, it's not real metal. I can even see the original plastic in the central "deeper" part (around disc slot and USB ports) which are part of the same plastic casing compenent from the botton and top (except, obviously, the HDD lid). It would be crazy to replace the casing with metal, metals are highly thermal and electric conductive, it could be dangerous to touch it. Also it obviously isn't somehow "covered" in real metal because plates would be, even if really thin, a lot thicker than what we see in the photos.

That's probably just a type of contact paper (different types stick to different surfaces, some are also removable), it's an easy enough material to curve around logos for precise etched images and only costs like 1 buck the meter around here (don't know about US, but it must be cheap there too)... If not, it's just one of those skin (basically the same stuff pre-cutted to proper size and shape, but usually with a weaker removable adhesive).

I agree. This is most likely a decal or a stupidly good faux paint job.

If I'd do anything like this though I'd like to make the PS4 look like the NES-PS4 render that has popped up on N4G a couple times.

this thing looks so cool. I want one!!!

Wonder how much it weighs when compared to the regular version? And also how the heat consumption rate fares also?

Mother of God. Im throwing money at my screen but nothing happens.

I still prefer the Atari one but.

Mother of god! Probably the most awesome mod I've seen in quite some time. Not sure about the controller, but the system itself looks very kewl! Thanks for sharing!

Bathyj1595d ago

The controller is awesome. Its for oldschool gamers that dont even need the name of the buttons written on them.

Conzul1595d ago

oh wow! Such lust I feel!

That has to be the sexiest looking console I have ever seen. I mean, I'm a PC gamer, but this puts even some case mods to shame.
