some clever chap went and pimped his PS3 for a school project.
He's put a 500gb HDD in a fancy black perspex box. He hasn't even run the cables properly, which would leave me to believe this is removable (thank god). Hardly a "mod" at all, he hasn't "modded" a single playstation component.
hmm i see your point, nethertheless he does have the thing welded on there using a chemical you probably cant pronounce, (read his description) plus i cant imagain it was to easy, it isnt the most ideal way to get a HDD that size BUT it is said it was for a project. somehow i think he passed ;)
Perspex? Looks like cardboard. "Guy Gimps His PS3 HDD"
looks lame. I would much rather just leave it external but if he is happy with it then cool
lol i love the first comments on the board From guy: "Also, if you're going to **bleep** it off, please offer a bit more feedback than "man, that's ugly."" Comments: "What exactly is that monstrosity?", "god **bleep** thats ugly, but i cant do that so good work nonetheless.", "I'll be honest dude... looks F U G L Y", "Thats what the Xbox 360 would of looked like if it had the power brick internal. ", "to be honest, it looks crap."
Yah, Hilarious. The one about your ps3's on viagra ... good laughs.
LOL don't listen to Fishy Fingers, thats quite original and funky
Yes listen to him^^ instead.
well, yes basically
...if you have enough time on your hands, some motivation, a little patience, and your grade is on the line you can make some interesting things happen (message for the kiddies). I wonder what he got on this project and what the REST of his grades were for that term in his other subjects. Cheers to you for not making a volcano, or a tornado in a 2 liter bottle! Although both those projects rocked hard in the 2nd grade!! Pimped his PS3 HDD...no...Pumped it up, yes. This is the Reebok Pump of mods lol! I joke but I still think this is pretty cool he's did something he can be proud of :)
than a mod... Actually it ugly..
ah well stuff the negativity. i bet half of you couldnt do something like this if you tried your hardest, i know i wouldnt be able too
Well, I order a 500GB Sata 2.5" HDD off the internet, and I save myself the time of adding a hump to the ps3 :P.
I failed my graphics technology course. But, I could still do that.... Good for him though, but why did he modify the angles? If Iw ere him, I would ahve put the placement on the bottom so the wires were invisible, and the eliptical shape could be preserved.
damn it looks like genesis with all the addons rofl ugly muthafocker
he shoulda just added a 2.5" 500GB HD, woulda saved the aesthetics of the ps3
True, this is a fugly PS3.
Is that the Frankeinstation 3 ????? What a ugly thing, looks like a tumor taking over the console. I would never do that to my beautiful PS3, never, ever.
They made it Ugly like the xFlop360!:D
WHY, Just why?
damn thats hideous!
Like i said when i saw this on the EU PS forums, looks like somebody took a dump on the PS3. Who approved this and who posted it here in the first place?? Its not news, and its not even remotely entertaining to read.
Why would he do this? Bad Sony Soldier! 56 days until Judgment Day, Nazisoft! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
1 SONY CUM BUBBLE LEFT QUEEN KAZ AND 2 MONTHS TILL U GET A GAME LOL WAIT BEYOND INSTALL BEYOND SUCK BALLS BEYOND
or idiota, if your spanglish. The title should be "(Retarded)Guy GIMPS his PS3" .....and its follow up "(Retarded)Guy returns: Reduces PS3's value to zer0"
no mames werco. se dice asi'na. lol
but you could pop a usb connector on it and designed it as a ps3 inspired hdd case.. or even made it to fit under the ps3 and made it for multiple hard drives. but all in all an interesting piece of work..
I have a 360 but this comment on that page made me crack up "That's what the 360 would have looked like if the power brick was eternal" lmao I'm sorry but that's fuc*ing hilarious...sad cause I love my 360, lmao woo
How 'bout a 500 gig internal HDD?
Of the Genesis with the 32X on it. It's cool and all, but I wonder how much it actually cost him, and if the difference would have just purchased the 2.5" drive. -CadDad
Ugly AND useless - way to go man! /sarc
That is blasphemy. It's about as bad as swearing at church (if you go to such places)
What does the holder do? Does it allow you to use normal IDE and SATA 3.5" HDD's or is it the smaller 2.5" SATA HDDs? Because if it's the second one, then there's really no point to it.
...........i did that 4 years ago and got an A, seriously this lad did this to get a high school qualification, i know the marking critirea for that unit and he isnt going to do very well, poor school project.
He gets to do a mod for the PS3 and I get to make a golf ball roll for 20 seconds down a track with a loop and a jump. I feel like dropping out.
Looks like a cash register box I reckon...
pimpin aint easy...and by the looks of that its not attactive either ::puke::
LOL !!! WTF !!! That is a baby only a mother would love. Well, in this case, the kid.
I loved this comment: "Thats what the Xbox 360 would of looked like if it had the power brick internal. " LMAO that's the best comment ever
Man the harpoons!!! But, in all seriousness, an extra 500GB WOULD be handy. If only he could have implemented it more subtly :P Good work to him though, he somewhat followed the style and did something I couldn't :3
That looks just like an original ps3 oh wait... *ducks*
