So we do not get overtaken by the variety of consoles on show, we will concentrate on the PlayStation on this article. Ever because it battered two long-standing gaming behemoths again within the 90s, it has been many individuals’s first selection relating to methods.

30 Dope: This Superior Crash Bandicoot PlayStation

Modders do not come far more expert than the Belgian genius behind this PSX mod, Vadu Amka. Based mostly upon the ‘Jungle Rollers’ degree from the unique Crash Bandicoot, this mod is a loving homage to a franchise that was as soon as a keystone within the PlayStation’s catalog. Along with the large, unmissable face of Crash himself on the disc tray, the mod additionally options numerous different references to the extent. These embrace carvings, brilliant and delightful colours, and a TNT crate, this mod took critical work, nevertheless it was all value it.

29 Lame: A Wooden-Impact Monstrosity

I’ve by no means fairly understood the urge that some modders need to make their consoles appear to be an element from a Jaguar dashboard. Again when faceplates have been nonetheless a factor on the 360, I keep in mind being frankly baffled by one which was woodgrain, however in case you thought that was dangerous, then, oh boy. This wrap provides your PS4 (and, for bonus ugliness, your controller), a end that extra resembles the deck of a yacht. I actually am confused as to who that is for — certainly it does not promote nicely, proper?

28 Dope: If Umbrella Made PS4s

Have you ever ever needed to expertise the horror of Resident Evil 7 in probably the most genuine method potential? Ever needed to look lovingly on the Umbrella emblem whereas making an attempt to cover out of your unkillable foe? No? Properly, me neither, till I noticed this console. Made by console modder eXtreme, this can be a true murals. Not solely does it function the Umbrella emblem and a zombie looming at you, however a vial of what I can solely assume is the T-virus alongside one aspect. Fabulous work!

27 Lame: When Steampunk Goes Dangerous

I’ve by no means been an enormous fan of the steampunk aesthetic, however I’ll admit that it may be pulled off properly. Typically you find yourself with these nice brass machines and whatnot that basically are beautiful. This isn’t a type of. If you would like your PS4 to resemble much less one thing from BioShock and extra one thing made by Wallace and Gromit, then please, by all means, buy your self this pores and skin. The controllers and consoles function flat-looking dials, buttons, and a spool of copper wire, executed with no artistry by any means.

26 Dope: A PS4 By Vault-Tec

I feel that for those who have been trying to make a Fallout-themed PS4, it will be very straightforward to comply with the lazy, well-worn path. There’d be a person in energy armor on the highest of it, a half-hearted radiation image on it, and that may be it. This mod takes no such half-measures. Completed in blue and yellow, the colours of Vault-Tec, this PS4 apparently got here from Vault 101 in accordance with its numbering, and options Vault-Tec branding above and under the console’s PS4 emblem. Even the vents on the again are completed in yellow!

25 For When You Need To Promote An Power Drink On A PS4

This one truly actually makes me indignant. Are individuals actually that a lot of a follower to branding about power drinks? Do individuals purchase this one, hoping to show their dominance over their Monster/Pink Bull/Relentless consuming buddies? Is there actually anyone on the market who’s so proud to drink Rockstar Power that they’re going to desecrate a wonderfully handsome console just like the PS4 with this garish pores and skin? It provides you wraps for 2 controllers, as a part of the package deal. I am unsure why, you will not have any pals after this.

24 Dope: The Greatest Joker PS4

Few comics come near Alan Moore’s “The Killing Joke” for pure gravitas. It gave The Joker a tragic backstory, and in addition produced a couple of deeply memorable panels, because of Moore’s writing and Brian Bolland’s unimaginable illustrations. I am very stunned that there aren’t extra of those mods knocking about. That is the one one I’ve seen, and it is a cracker. The primary focus of this mod is the panel the place The Joker laughs maniacally after coping with the economic accident that lastly turned him insane, together with the comedian’s cowl. All of it matches fantastically on the PS4’s physique, and appears beautiful.

23 Lame: A Marble-Impact PS4

by way of

Should you thought I used to be finished with this pretentious faffery with the wood-effect PS4, you have been improper! I feel this one may very well have it beat within the ugliness stakes. It seems as if it has been roughly hewn from a kitchen counter. This isn’t the marble that was used within the statues of the Renaissance, that is the faux-marble that bedecks each residence beneath the solar. It really works high-quality there, however on a video games console? Actually? It seems to be so dangerous, and no one can inform me in any other case. If anybody has ever purchased considered one of these, I really feel sorry for them.

22 Dope: A PS3 Match For Raiden

I feel that we will all agree that Raiden is an unimaginable hero in Metallic Gear Rising: Revengeance. He makes Massive Boss seem like a weakling, and that is a heck of an achievement. This PS3 is impressed by Rising’s aesthetics, and it got here out superbly. Not solely does this mod function some unimaginable bodywork laid over the PS3’s middle, nevertheless it additionally boasts not one, however two, mild mods. In the direction of the again of the console, there is a faint pink glow, whereas on the entrance, there’s the Metallic Gear Rising emblem illuminated in electrical blue.

21 Lame: The Console Equal Of A Goth’s Necklace

I do not know should you grew up studying the identical types of magazines as me, however sometimes behind them, you’d discover adverts for Gothic jewellery. These ugly designs are what this PS4 jogs my memory of. Both that or the World Struggle I degree from the (very gothic) The Darkness. There are pink slash marks in all places, however the centerpiece is a very ugly cranium with crossed M16s behind it and rocking a Vietnam-era helmet. I do not know what this case is supposed to symbolize, in all honesty, however I do realize it appears horrible.

20 Dope: This Superior Pink Lifeless Redemption 2 PS4

Been having fun with Purple Lifeless Redemption 2? I guess you’ve got, however I am additionally prepared to guess that your dedication to the sport is not fairly as excessive as Drumblanket’s. Don’t be concerned, mine is not both, however take a look at the gorgeous memorial he is made to RDR2. It is an extremely intricate case mod, boasting a clear window permitting the participant a glimpse of the PS4’s innards. On the reverse aspect, there is a incredible printing of the RDR2 cowl artwork. To finish the look, the entire thing has been completed in purple. It is beautiful, fairly frankly.

19 Lame: The Ugly Aspect Of The Crash Bandicoot PS1 Household

Earlier, we confirmed you a tremendous Crash Bandicoot-inspired PS1. Now, we have got one that’s on your complete different finish of the spectrum. It is clearly impressed by the identical degree as the opposite, however good lord is it uglier. Positive, it is received the identical TNT crate, however that’s about the place the similarity ends. It is annoying too, as a result of the one that made it clearly has expertise, with numerous parts of the mod being very properly drawn, however then the weird fashion of Crash himself lets it down. The place are his eyes? What’s improper together with his hair? Why’s he coated in spots?

18 Dope: Wanna Make Your PS4 Professional Look Like An Previous E-book?

Based mostly on the premise alone, I really feel like I ought to hate this pores and skin, nevertheless it truly works rather well. In the midst of this previous, forgotten tome, there is a Mayan-esque cranium that appears beautiful, and can be discovered on the controllers. The colour palette is good, a muted brown that is complemented by the brass and blue of the important thing, in addition to the mushy reds of the important thing’s ribbon. It appears something however flat, which I feel is likely one of the causes it really works.

17 Lame: Leopard Print, Meet PS4

I assumed we might seen the final of leopard print, I actually did. It got here again as kitsch a number of years again, then fell out of style once more. Certainly, this pores and skin have to be knowingly gaudy. Nobody may be taking a look at this and considering that it represents a ravishing type for his or her video games console, can they? That can be as absurd as selecting an elephant as your commuter car of selection. It is hilariously ugly: in case you take a look at it for too lengthy, I am fairly positive it should take your eyeballs out, so watch out.

16 Dope: A PS4 Professional With Basic Seems to be

No bones might be made about it, the PS1 was a basic design in gaming historical past. Positive, it will not be spellbindingly colourful, however its easy design and pleasingly neat edges secured it a spot in our collective consciousness for years to return. If you would like the newest tech, however with the identical seems to be as your first PlayStation, feast your eyes on this. Made to order by Colorware, these value $899, however nonetheless handle to promote out once in a while. If you wish to have an extra-special PS4, get your self one among these.

15 Lame: This FFVII-Impressed PS1

What’s lame about this? It is true that it is not as egregious as the opposite entries on this record. The decal is utilized properly sufficient, however so far as I can inform, that is all that has actually been executed to it. Sure, it is an iconic image of Cloud, and the console and controllers look shiny, however so what? Like, I am not getting up within the creator’s grill, as a result of that may be imply, nevertheless it feels very half-baked to me. They could as properly have simply utilized a sticker to their PS1 and left it at that.

14 Dope: This Unimaginable Star Wars: Battlefront PS4

I’ll freely admit that I am biased right here. I really like Battlefront, or slightly, I really like the previous Battlefronts, making this wrap, using the long-lasting cowl artwork, an excellent love letter to an oft-forgotten basic. I feel what I like most about this pores and skin is that it has been designed and utilized so neatly, it appears, frankly, as if it might have been an OEM choice by Sony. The colours of the lightsabers, and the contrasting colours of the costumes make this PS4 stand out from the pack.

13 Lame: Really feel The Edge On This Gory PS1

This could be an novice effort and all, however holy lord, is that this an unsightly PlayStation. In accordance with the individual behind it, they have been going for a Russian/horror/army vibe, by which, I assume, they imply a STALKER-ish vibe. It isn’t received that going for it although, has it? It is acquired a horrific paintjob solely within the sense of how poorly it has been utilized. The purple has been utilized too neatly for what I assume is supposed to be blood, whereas the filth throughout it simply makes it appear to be it has been sat in a basement for years.

12 Dope: A Crystal PS1

What occurred to that development of creating electronics see-through? My unique Xbox was a crystal mannequin, and a bunch of my childhood associates had clear Recreation Boy Advances. Then that entire concept simply disappeared. It is a disgrace, as a result of these consoles seemed unimaginable. This PS1 has gone again to this development with an virtually mad vigor. The previous plastic panels have been changed with clear ones, with the one issues blocking the transparency being the PlayStation emblem and two phrases: “Power” and “Open.”

11 Lame: A Terminator PS4 That Ought to Be Terminated

Apparently, that isn’t a Terminator on this wrap, presumably as a result of they could not get the license. Let’s be actual although, it undoubtedly is one, and oh my lord does that design not work in any means. Blood and sparks bedeck it like a black metallic music video, and, as if the cringy design on the console wasn’t sufficient, the controllers get completely short-changed. One controller will get the Terminator, sorry, robotic’s head, whereas participant 2 will get an nameless little bit of sky and a few scrap metallic. Who designed this rattling factor?

10 Dope: A PS1 Modded To Midgar And Again

Should you like Remaining Fantasy VII however need a PS1 that is been modded in additional methods than merely having a sticker utilized, forged your eyes over this one. A one-of-a-kind PlayStation mod that is been given a stone texture after which fitted with a 3D mannequin of Midgar, capital of the Shinra Electrical Energy Firm. It is a legendary metropolis, with the shot of it from above being one of the well-known in gaming historical past. Absolutely-working, drop-dead beautiful, and meticulously modded, that is really superb.

9 Lame: A Pandering And Ugly Mod

Okay, so this entry is extra a few systemic drawback than a selected design, however this one illustrates it completely. There are numerous case mods and wraps that function ladies in languid poses that take a wonderfully good console and make it embarrassing. Furthermore, simply take a look at how badly designed this wrap is. There is a huge black spot in the midst of her brow. The picture is badly stretched, and when it is rendered on the controllers, it is even worse.

eight Dope: A Ps1 For The True Spyro Followers

Forged your minds again to the start of this text, the place we featured an embarrassingly drawn Crash PS1. When you have been extra of a Spyro fan, then check out this superbly rendered PS1. Spyro is entrance and middle, with a number of different characters round him. The system’s buttons have been painted purple after which completed in yellow, whereas the controller encompasses a small portrait of Spyro in its middle. Beautiful work by a gifted artist, and an excellent tribute to Spyro.

7 Lame: This Dragon Ball-Z PS1

Positive, it is probably not a sticker, however this hand-drawn Dragon Ball PlayStation simply appears a bit boring. It clearly took inspiration from the pictured recreation case, however I fairly firmly consider this console sits on the road separating inspiration and plagiarism. In case you are deranged sufficient to like any of the Dragon Ball-Z PS1 video games to that extent, one shouldn’t be stunned that you simply aren’t sensible sufficient to provide you with a customized design. Simply by-product, badly rendered garbage.

6 Dope: Darkish Souls III: Custom PS4 Version

One other unimaginable bit of labor by Vadu Amka, a lot work went into this lovely console. The disc cowl is produced from waxed rosewood, whereas the lettering has been created from copper, then hammered to create a worn impact. The decrease a part of the console is made out of hammered, brushed aluminum. If you wish to see what a very lovely console is, then drink this in. It is really beautiful, requiring quite a lot of totally different expertise to deliver to completion.

5 Lame: This Early 1TB PS4

Again within the day, the one 1TB PS4 you possibly can get was this monstrosity. Themed round Name of Obligation: Black Ops III, drink this lame factor in. It seems to be prefer it was made by Fisher-Worth. The brilliant orange piping and stencils, the orange thumbsticks towards a grey background, after which the large previous little bit of Black Ops branding on the entrance. It seems to be actually, actually horrible. I am so happy which you could simply purchase any previous PS4 Professional off the shelf nowadays and get a terabyte of storage.

four Dope: This Borderlands PS3

Constructed by the identical man behind the superior Metallic Gear Rising console earlier, that is the very best option to play Borderlands. If you wish to gaze lovingly on the recreation’s superior cowl artwork whereas enjoying, this PS3 is what you want. It is rendered fantastically, not simply wanting like a flat sticker, however extra like a sculpted addition to the PS3’s physique. The lettering stands out boldly, and it is simply implausible to take a look at. It virtually makes up for all of the dreck we have had to take a look at.

three Lame: Superman PS4

Proper, please inform me the final time that Superman was related. Positive, we have had a number of movies with him in recent times, however Batman is the DC hero de jour, and even then, he cannot compete with Marvel’s domination. If, for some purpose, you’re a large fan of the Man of Metal, might I recommend that you simply look elsewhere on your Superman repair? The brand is there, in fact, however the background is product of comedian panels, which might be barely seen on account of its considerably lurid cyan colour. Simply poorly deliberate out.

2 Dope: Like Video games? Like Recreation Of Thrones? Then You will Love This

Should you love Recreation of Thrones, which you must, in case you have a functioning thoughts, then you are going to love this pores and skin for the PS4. The console’s pores and skin is tastefully completed, that includes the continent of Westeros, overlaid with the sigil of Home Stark. On the wolf, you will see the Stark motto, after which there is a little bit of branding beneath the disc tray. The controllers are properly achieved too, that includes simply the Recreation of Thrones emblem on one, and the wolf/Westeros combo on the opposite.

1 Lame: Company Style, The Nike PS4

I’ve acquired nothing towards Nikes. They’re completely good sneakers, however actually? Do you actually love Nike sufficient that you simply need to adorn your PS4 with their emblem? I’ll grant you, it might look very barely higher than the Rockstar one we confirmed earlier, however it’s not precisely a looker, is it? It bothers me since you’re principally turning your PlayStation into an advert. Not solely are you bombarded with adverts all over the place you go, however these individuals then go and set up them of their lounges too. Baffling.
