If you want to turn your PS4 into a status symbol, German manufacturer Balolo might just have what you’re looking for in the form of a genuine wooden cover that will turn your console into an even more stylish piece of decor for your classy loft.
Wow that looks sexy! Reminds me of a more elegant version of this... http://ecx.images-amazon.co...
Love the look, very nice.
Agreed, looks very stylish. I mean - unless you were a Cyclops - who wouldn't give an eye for this? Got two anyway and 3D is overrated! :P
Ahh.. It's like my customized Moto X phone. Bamboo wood :D . I would totally get this to match.
The fact that real wood is used, I would not suggest this as a cover for your PS4. Wood is a horrible conductor of heat. If it was a wood-resembling laminate or the like, it would be better.
That is one seriously stylish PS4.
This is awesome. Now I will have a wooden ps4 that matches my wooden TV, my wooden cable box and wooden TV stand.
Welcome to the 1980s.
Lovely wood finish PS4 versus uninspired VCR-styled XB1?
@Mike My comment had nothing to do with xbox or playstation really. It was more about how putting wood patterns on a machine or car was a popular design in the 1980s.
Actually, it's welcome to contemporary home decor.
I feel as though I would be doing my PS4 a disservice if it had this cover on and I was playing it while sporting anything short of a suit and tie.
Can't play it in a casket bro. :p -but she is puuuuuuuurty lOl, I can't see myself adding anything to my ps4 though she's staying 100% factory just like my ps1, ps2 and ps3 did. Now if I didn't buy those at launch then i'd def get it in a diff. scheme. But it's something about that day 1 factory edition. lOl
what if it overheats would it not be a bit dangerous
looks awesome but for that price they really shouldn't have plastered their company name on the front of the system. It would be amazing if it wasnt for that enormous ugly irrelevant logo.
Totally agree, poor design choice. Would defer me from getting it entirely.
I don't normally care much for such things, but that is nicely done. Very stylish.
Id prefer Jarrah.
It looks nice but I'd rather have a skin because this wouldn't fit in the vertical stands.
Icarbons makes some cool covers for ps4s, the controllers, and even the camera.
How is wood as a heat conductor? Pretty sure it's not that good... Looks stylish though.
Wood is a bad conductor of heat. It actually stays pretty cool to the touch even when very hot outside(think your porch in the summer). It is actually an insulator. This wood is pretty thin though, so not likely to be an issue.
Beware of termites?
Looks almost as good as this Xbox One... http://www.thegameeffect.co...
Nice would fit perfect with all my japanese style furniture but I am not paying that much for a cover, never will. Laser cut or not.. I mean that is half the cost of the PS4 just to cover it.. I'll pass. Maybe if it was around $100 it would seem more reasonable.
Wow, bro, SWAG! Ima call the fire department ahead of time, aight?
i think it looks sweet. but why bash xone? no matter what the ps4 looks like, it wont play titanfall. lol
Yeah, because ps4 has way too much class for that garbage :)
It's ok. I'll play it on my wood encased PC.
I have one of the wood grain SlickWraps skins on my PS4
Looks nice but no way i'm paying that much for a cover.
Costs an eye you say? I'll take 2! It'll be worth it.
Ahhhhh.... I see what you just did :D
It looks great and all, but I cant help but wondering how changing or adding to the case material would affect the heat situation.
True. Wood is a good heat insulator... Whether it would be a good or bad thing, it will definitely affect it somehow.
Maybe it's just me... But I cant imagine anyone wanting their PS4...to look like a block of wood. Unless you have some kind of wood fetish. I mean really...go to Amazon and check out their skins. I can find 10 that (in my own personal tastes) look better than wooden paneling. Two toned, at that. Just...tacky.
If Sony isn't planning on releasing a slim, or perhaps a more luxury version of the PS4, I would really invest on this console. Now I can be amazed by both playing my game and looking at the PS4 console!
That's what I'm talking about with unique cases, much better with the whole thing being altered. Would "look" perfect with a wooden controller case too. Now make a designer case out of the coolest (temp') material.
dat wood grain
High temp + wood = not good
Not my style, but it is pretty cool. I'll admit when I first got my Xbox 360 I love the whole interchangeable faceplates. It would be cool if I could switch the glossy black part of the PS4 (that I think easily comes off) for a specially designed one.
I'll stick to my carbon fibre stickers
You can go to your local lumber store or Home Depot or Lowe's and have them shave you a slice of any piece of wood in the store any size you want it for a couple dollars a square foot. To pay this much is ridiculous when you could do it yourself at home and save yourself probably $180 or $190. You could even stain it any color you wanted or stick with the original woodgrain. 3M makes an adhesive that comes right off when you want it to, you could use to stick it on your system. I just don't want to see people wasting an unnecessary amount of money on something like this when it could be done for pennies on the dollar themselves.
Throw that log in to the fire to warm your gaming night on PC.
Looks ok, but at least it will conduct away the heat better than the plastic will. Gotta be hot as hell inside there ;-)
Official Town Crier. I'd like to ask you a few questions. One, Where's the wooden PS4? And two, gimme the wooden PS4.
