Give your current gen consoles a dash of Intellivision and Atari style with Toast’s wood veneers. They’re made of ash, bamboo, walnut or ebony and can be customized with laser engraving.
Polygon got a sample for the PS4 and they say the panels can easily be installed in 20 minutes.
Console laptop expert Ed Zarick keeps pushing his modding skills. His latest finished casemods are based on the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. One is a Captain America-themed Xbox One laptop and the other is an Iron Man-themed PlayStation 4 laptop.
Dress your current-gen console in alternate colorways with Clockwork Signage’s shoebox-themed skins. They have Nike, Jordan, Adidas and New Balance skins for both the PS4 and Xbox One.
It’s not clear in the photos but the Jordan and Nike skins are available for both consoles.
Earlier this year we checked out Ed Zarick’s Playbox, a laptop that contains both the Xbox One and the PS4. That was supposed to be a one-off, but Ed got a lot of requests for the console combo that he decided to add it to his list of products on sale.
Ed says he couldn’t find enough 22″ Vizio monitors, so for the PlayBox Mk.
This weekend, developer Turn 10 Studios unveiled three custom Xbox One controllers, in time with Ford’s announcement that it will compete in the 2016 Le Mans. The company behind the Xbox-exclusive Forza Motorsport games themed each controller after one of Ford’s Le Mans cars from the 60s.
The blue controller is called 1965, after the year that Ford’s Shelby Daytona Coupe became the first American-made car to win at Le Mans’ GT class, placing 4th overall.
The black controller is the 1966, after the year the Ford GT won 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the 24-hour race.
Finally there’s the 1967, named after the year Ford defended it Le Mans title.
Turn 10 Studios showed off the controllers at Le Mans this weekend, and will put them on display once again this week at E3.
…and neither is that free machine that Handsome Jack promised to give to the citizens of Opportunity. That said, what 2K Games is offering in its Borderlands Handsome Jack Loot Contest is still pretty sweet and it could all be yours for free.
I remember playing the board game Risk growing up. It always seemed like you needed to carve out an entire day to play it. People would always start backing out of the game and wanting to do something else when it was clear they were losing.
Gold-plated Xbox One and PlayStation 4 case mods exist, but obviously they cost thousands of dollars. If you want your gaming system to have some of that shine yet still keep both of your kidneys, you might want to settle for ColorWare’s limited edition 24-karat gold-plated Xbox One controllers.
Aside from the coveted coating, ColorWare also added textured tips on the Xbox One controller’s analog sticks.
Eddie Zarick is officially the king of laptop case mods. After combining the Xbox One and Xbox 360 in one laptop conversion, Ed has managed to cram both the PS4 and the Xbox One in one unit, which is just a bit taller than his other console laptop mods.
The PlayBox uses the same Vizio 22″ LCD monitor as Ed’s other laptop mods.
We’ve featured a few specialized hacks and adapters that let you use a different controller on one gaming platform. But ConsoleTuner’s Titan One adapter might be able to fulfill several of your controller needs at once – even the ones you never thought you had.
Console modder Ed Zarick’s been on a tear lately. Last month he introduced his Xbox One laptop mod, then a couple of weeks ago he showed off his PS4 laptop mod. Now he’s back with another laptop mod, but it’s not based on the Wii U.
We’ve seen an Xbox One laptop mod before, but if you’re looking for a more customizable design check out Ed Zarick’s Xbook One. Ed has been modifying Xbox 360 consoles for a while now, and he says he’s significantly improved his build process for the Xbook One.
Ed’s build has gotten better not just because of his experience but because he’s now 3D printing some of the mod’s parts, including the corner pieces, brackets and custom component mounts.
EA has announced a new subscription gaming service for users of the Xbox One game console called EA Access. The subscription service is available with a monthly fee of $4.99. For that monthly fee, gamers get access to a library of games called The Vault.
Before today’s press conference, Microsoft Xbox chief Phil Spencer promised “we are dedicating our entire briefing to games” and unlike last year’s attempt to win our living rooms as an entertainment hub, all but one minute of today’s 90 minute press conference was dedicated to gaming.
