Alternate PS4 designs

So we've probably all seen this image by now, right? If you could change the coloring or aesthetics of the PS4, how would it look?

That looks beautiful. I would pay more just to have this version of the Console. I wish I could do photoshop or other art software stuffs so I can partake in this

That'd be an awesome looking special edition controller but I wouldn't want my console to look like that. Call me boring but I like my systems to be one solid color though I do wish they came in a variety of colors.

I can understand that, the consoles being all black looks sleek and sexy, turns me the fuck on.

Something about a NES theme on a Playstation console seems blasphemous.

If the PS4 or the Xbox One came in white I would get that.

That's pretty good. Only a matter of time before someone gets their PS4 screen porinted to look exactly like that. It reminds me of those old PlayStation sticker sets that would just apply a decal to the top of your console. Those were so hard to get off. I remember trying to get the sticker off the top of one that belonged to a friend from school. hard work. Also that one kid who just bought a black one, but only applied the top and left the rest of the console grey, all those gaps. . . . No taste.

I've just looked for pictures of the stickers I'm talking about and realised I must be older than I thought. something I remember from my youth isn't easily found on the internet. Jesus.

I don't know what it is, but white/black systems just make me drool.

#13 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

I saw this image a few days back. Gotta say orange on black (1st col, 4th row) is my favorite.

Fake wood grain!

Right there in the middle.

Dat pink and green, oh my goodness. I'm sad now because I know it'll never be a reality!

#15 Edited by dobschutz (54 posts) -

doz purple ones. awwwwwwww yah

#16 Posted by awesomeusername (4154 posts) -

That NES style controller looks sweet. I want a white one though, only because my Vita is white and it looks nice. Also, that black/orange & white/orange look great too. Also, that purple! I've been playing Saints Row 3.

My god, I love the green and the silver/green below it. What can I say, green is my favorite color.

#24 Edited by StarvingGamer (8027 posts) -

The same pink as the Dualshock 3.

If it came with a mandatory wired controller sporting a snazzy three foot long cable, I'd buy that system.

White and red too, I wish they were really a choice.

That White/Orange one is sexy(3rd col, 3rd row)

But no, I must not get excited beucase they will never happen!
Also I just want a pink one, not pink and green, just pink. That way it fits in nicely with my PS2.
Easier to recognize that they're mine that way, especially when I bring controllers to other peoples homes or when I work at the big conventions and they need controllers/consoles.

Me too. They'll probably release a white one in Japan and then take about 6 years for them to ever release one over here. :(

That looks so nice.

Wait until they inevitably announce a pearl white PS4 exclusively for Japan again with no western release in sight until maybe 6 years later.

#30 Posted by jacksonroye (68 posts) -

I didn't dig the idea of a white one until you posted this. Now it's all I want :(

#31 Edited by Jazzycola (662 posts) -

I like most of those Photoshopped PS4s, except for the ones that involve purple/pink and green combo, gold/yellow, and the woodgrain. Also, the controller in any other color just looks like an incredibly cheap piece of crap (except maybe white).

Edit: And when I say it looks like an incredibly cheap piece of crap, I mean it looks like a Mad Catz turbo controller from the PSX era.

THE WHITE ONE IS DOPE id buy that day one.

#33 Edited by MaxOpower (192 posts) -

@redcream: Really? I don't see the resemblance at all! Get out of here!

#34 Edited by thejke (91 posts) -

I really like this purple controller, but the system not so much. It is no GameCube.

I'D BUY THAT FAKE WOOD GRAIN CONSOLE IN A HEART BEAT...as long as the price is reasonable ofcourse :D

#36 Edited by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

Think you're onto something here. Especially with the purple one. Personally I really liked the 'glossy' look that gradually got phased out; there's something about matte black plastic which ends up looking cheap to me, and alternate colours go some way to alleviate that.

All that said, plastic 'chrome' finishes usually look fucking terrible as well, so maybe I should just appreciate things as they are.

I want a translucent PS4 in the stylings of Gameboys and N64 controllers. I need to see all the science inside!

This. I had the crystal O.G. Xbox, and it was THE FUTURE.

I also had the translucent purple N64, but we don't talk about that.

@jjweatherman: Are you saying that the NES had a 3 foot cord, because I'm pretty sure that cord was terrifically long.

#41 Posted by Angouri (231 posts) -

I would love a red one. That shiny red.... yes please.

#42 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2495 posts) -

I love the silver/black one but if next gen ends up anything like the current one, I bet I'll just have my launch PS4 forever and never be able to buy a silver version if/when they put one out.

#43 Edited by Reisz (1461 posts) -

Oh my giddy aunt. That white mock up is fucking delectable. My Vita is white and now I kind of want them to match. Holy shit Sony, get on this pronto.

Edit: I've just had the Wii comparison illuminated for me. Slightly less interested, though if they still use the part matte part gloss look with the blue LED bar. . . Damn it does look good.

Oh no, Imagine the grippy underseurface on the gamepad. . . That thing would be clean for approximately eleven seconds.

I actually like that green & pink model, kinda chinsy but it makes me think of watermelons.

#45 Posted by Nictel (2380 posts) -

I know the NES-scheme will never come to live but the white one, please? :D

#46 Edited by Winternet (8006 posts) -

That first controller look terruble.

#47 Edited by bemusedchunk (673 posts) -
