level 1

I love how the games and controllers are just randomly thrown in there.

level 2

The painstakingly strategic placement to give the appearance of being randomly placed was a success!

Should have had an odd number of games in the top layer for extra random effect

"We focus-tested this design and it has the ideal consumer level of messiness"

level 3

You joke about it, but it's probably the truth.

level 4

I know you're right, but it's not as fun to read as the sarcastic comment.

level 2

It's a lootbox!

level 3

When she opens it she only has a1.7% chance of finding the ps4 she needs.

level 3

Kill it with fire!

Same size as an XBOX360 init?

Yo dawg!

level 2

I heard you like PS4

level 3

Now I want to see a box that contains an Xbox One X Box which contains an Xbox One X.

level 4

With an Xbox one inside that One X

level 5

Gotta love those yard sales

level 3

I heard you like lootboxes....

level 1

great way to overheat your console.

I can't imagine anyone would actually play the system while leaving it in a box like that. But there was a giant hole on the back for plugs...

level 2

With some slight mods it would work. You can get a few 120mm fans and mount them on the back. Just use a MOLEX to USB adapter and plug it into the system. Then every time you start it up the fans will kick on and give plenty of airflow.

level 3

I did this. Put my PS4 inside a closed cabinet with 2 100mm fans. Worked like a charm. Cost about $15 tops and took about an hour to install.

level 4

Yeah I did it for my in-laws' entertainment center. Everything in it kept overheating so they had to keep the door open. I just installed a few 120mm fans on the back and it fixed it.

level 4

I'm gonna assume they're in pull configuration but I gotta ask anyway. Is it to pull hot air out, or push cold air in?

level 5

I set mine up to have a neutral internal pressure (one pull, one push), only having to cool a single PS4.

It seemed to work well, but a negative pressure would have worked just as well in my situation.

If there is decent passive ventilation in a other part of the cabinet, setting both to pull hot air out will be perfect. Of course this depends on how much heat is actually being produced

level 6

Got it, thanks! I'll try it for my setup, with the PS4 in an open shelf, maybe I'll give the double pull on it. The PS4 pro dumps a lot of heat lol

level 7

It does! I upgraded to the Pro myself but the fans are still great! Good luck!

level 2

Waiting for the PS4 Pro version of this.....

At least the console noise will be drowned out more.

level 1

About the same size as my original PS3.

I think they're placed intentionally to display the games.

Don't give them any ideas on how to get rid of their excess copies of battleborn.

You can get Battleborn for $1.37 at Target.

level 2

Isn't that what the Taco Bell boxes become during console launches? Most people get common items like the food and a very small percentage get the video game consoles.

level 3

I won the destiny box but the real win was the quesarito shits I got from the $5 box.

level 4

It's called cleansing.

level 2

Congrats you just got 10 copies of FIFA 15 for $250

level 2

Happy cake day!! Have a good one

level 1

tacky af

level 2

It sure is. Why not also have a fridge that looks like a giant bottle of milk, and make a pantry that looks like a giant box of frosty flakes.

level 3

Do you see people driving cars that look like miniature versions of their houses?

level 4

Well, it'd be more like people driving their car into a garage that looked like a giant version of their car.

To be fair I think this started because of the sneakerhead community, where a guy was making a giant box of Air Jordans which you could then store all of your Air Jordans in. For someone who collects grails or the like, that's a huge hit and also a neat way to store AND display your sneaks, but it doesn't really translate with the PS4, unless you just had stacks of limited edition consoles laid out in it for display.

It's how I feel about most gaming related decor. Usually looks cool but in reality I'd never want anything like this in my living space.

level 4

exactly remember the giant NES controller Kevin Rose made on Attack of the show? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaBbRQa9q4s fucking wicked but no I wouldn't want this to be my coffee table lol

level 5

I didn't see that one. I saw someone make one that was a coffee table but it did not actually function. It was just for looks but its interesting that they actually made it function.

No game room? You're right about the living room but I'd have loved this in my lair when I was still with my wife.

I bet she's gone because you un-ironically call it your "lair"

I might do some framed MGS or Witcher posters in a game room should I have a dedicated room one day.

level 4

What about one of these?

level 3

Some people define themselves far too much by geek stuff, like "I'm a gamer!" or "i'm a star wars nerd!" and then they have to have everything that tells the world what they are. It's why there's so much tacky stuff with star wars shit slapped on it.

level 4

Tell someone at a job interview that your a gamer and you'd be laughed out the building. Despite gaming becoming mainstream its still not an acceptable form of entertainment and labelling yourself a "gamer" just makes you look like a loser.

level 5

Tell me about it. I applied for an extra at UPS and they asked me about gaming. Guy said "my son plays all them games, he's 14". I'm a lot older than that.

level 4

I know, its just another addiction as far as addictions come...

level 4

this is the only thing I might consider making for myself lol and only if I had a giant rm... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaBbRQa9q4s

level 4

Tell me about it! This stuff almost killed Rick and Morty to me. Maybe I just like utilitarian design but in most cases I think a thing should just be a thing. A box should be a box, a table a table etc...

level 5

Yeah like you I enjoyed Rick and Morty season 1 and 2, before it exploded into geek pop culture. All the pickle rick bullshit kinda knocked it out of me.

I also think a thing should be a thing. All the characters in these shows people love wouldn't be caught dead having such gaudy bullshit in their homes.

level 1

It's almost as big as the original X Box.

level 2

The og ps3 was the monster. All three first iterations of the xboxes were all similarly sized actually. The 360 looked smaller because of the concaveness.

level 3

No the PS3 was not bigger than the original Xbox, it was a little smaller.

level 1

Waste of space

Why? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love my PS4, but this thing is tacky as hell and what are you going to do with it when the next gen comes out in a few years? Stick it in the garage/attic with your giant PS1-3 boxes?

Dude it took them 6 months to fix R6:S. But took almost 2 years to fix The Division. There has to be a point where we say no matter what they do it's not gonna make up for a shitty launch.

I bought it at launch for $50 and it was good but the endgame was complete shit. But someone who buys it today for $20 is going to get a significantly better experience. Yes I think updates are a good thing but there has to be a point where we say enough is enough.

Fixing one shitty launch is one thing but just using that excuse over and over is tiring. Next it'll be For Honor where everyone is saying "oh but it's so much better now." As if that makes up for every shitty launch.

I disagree. I’d prefer all games have proper launches, but I will never discourage devs from fixing their mess no matter how poor. I have no issues avoiding crappy game launches as I usually wait for reviews.

level 7

I'd prefer that companies actually releases completed products instead of the community defending them time and time again. Like I said once is fine. But when it keeps happening there's a serious QA issue.

level 6

$50 for 40 hours of amazing entertainment sounds like a fair deal to me.

I remember when people were complaining that The Fractured but Whole was too short at 20ish hours for a $60 game and I looked at them like they were taking crazy pills or something

level 8

Complain? What? I thought that game would never end, excellent value. The details were insane, all the small jokes and nods to the show, although I do prefer The Stick of Truth..

level 6

Don't buy new games. Join us at r/patientgamers (:

1 point · 8 months ago · edited 8 months ago

I'm just working through my backlog instead. Currently playing Yakuza Kiwami and reliving the good ol PS2 era in HD. It made me realize how sad it is thats it's better than most games released in the past few years. $20 used and even includes a Steelbook. No plastic case release whatsoever.

I used to buy literally everything at launch regardless of how good or bad the reviews were. Even if I wasn't hyped for it I still bought it to give it a try. But now I'm just getting what I'm actually hyped for.

After I finish that I'm on to finish Final Fantasy XV. Then gonna replay Horizon Zero Dawn so I can do the Frozen Wild dlc. Then I'll replay Yakuza 0 followed by 6. Hoping that around the time I finish Yakuza 6 that Detroit Become Human is out.

level 8

Is Yakuza 0 good?

level 9
1 point · 8 months ago · edited 8 months ago

Very. All the Yakuza games are amazing. One of my favorite franchises. If you plan on getting Kiwami you should play through 0 first. They added a few scenes that reference events in 0. Sega also plans on remastering the rest of the franchise. So they're doing Kiwami 2 this year (Japan got it last month) and 3-5 over the next 3 years. The US version of 2 hasn't been announced yet but the only release to not get a NA localization was Balck Panther for the PSP.

level 6

R6:S is fixed? Didn’t know the Jager shield was a feature!

level 7

I mean improving base mechanics. That shit was completely broken at launch.

level 8

Honestly had way more fun at dustline than any other edition. Don’t get me wrong I love the new addons and maps but exploits are fucking insane

level 4

i know. but its MY kind of crap

level 1

We put ps4 in ps4, now you can play on ps4 while you play on ps4.

That is one ugly box

Honestly thought one of those things from Dark Souls was gonna get up and eat the man.

It’s deformed

Looks like shit with everything scattered in there. Could have been great if it had some better proportions on those logos as well. I don't like it but I give props for the work it would have taken.

Shit

So he made that box to keep The Division and Black Ops 3? Wow

Why are you like this?

level 2

What’s wrong with the black ops PS4? It’s pretty sweet.

level 3

Personally I think it is as ugly as the Pro with Battlefront 2 stickers on it.

3 in roman numerals in big giant orange font taking up the whole console is about as tacky as it gets lol.

level 4

I have that pro!!! It’s so cool!! But hey it’s your opinion. Do you like any of the special consoles? Or just plain black?

level 5

Its just that Star Wars console could have been so cool looking, and that is all they could come up with.

I am a big fan of simple and clean looks or over the top designs, I have only really cared for the MGSV console (the best hands down) and of course that nostalgic 20th anniversary console. I am a sucker for a unique color.

I suppose the Destiny one is pretty good looking

that taco bell black and gold also looked pretty sleek

I actually had the Batman console which was pretty nice

Another worthy mention FFXV.

level 6

Yeah it could’ve been better, but for what we have it looks pretty cool imo.

That Batman console looks very slick I never have seen that one before.

Guessing you like that Uncharted PS4? That one is sick!

level 7

I feel like the pictures dont do that one justice, I think that blue and gold accented text would be look pretty awesome in person.

level 8

Oh man. That would look so sick! What would look cool if they made a God of war console.

level 9

Was thinking the same thing, would be nice if it was a pro.

level 10

They will definitely make it a pro, if they do one.
