Custom MGS4 PS3. wow.

External console mods don’t usually do it for me. When you’ve seen guys build arcade machines from scratch and people transform consoles into a handheld form, a simple repaint isn’t enough to impress me.

But Morpheon Mods latest effort is more than a simple repaint, their custom MGS4 themed PS3 is the real deal and is very fucking cool.

“The entire PS3 and controller is a combination of Carbon Fiber and Midnight Black done in our own digital camouflage technique. A full size Carbon Fiber Fox Hound logo appears amongst the digital camouflage. The final product is a uniform finish that reflects like a mirror.”

These guys have gone to great lengths to make the ultimate MGS4 collectors item, everything from the one of a kind laser etching of Snake to the inclusion of Hideo Kojima’s signature makes this a fanboy’s dream, and the fact that it’s a console with full backward compatibility doesn’t hurt. The console is listed on eBay, and the winner will also receive an impressive swag of MGS goodies which could warrant an eBay listing each, with 15% of the proceeds going to Child’s Play charity.

 

UPDATE: Well the auction is over – one lucky(?) buyer paid $17,100US (that’s $28,157.42 for us Aussies) for the privilege of owning this.

Playing on Playstation 3

Red Dead Revolver - I paid about $1000 for my launch model PS3, so I guess it's time I get some use out of that emotion chip crammed inside. I remember Red Dead Revolver looking rather good when it was released, and despite the low resolution and odd blurring (that I attribute to playing on a HD set) the game holds up well. It looks good despite these graphical limitations because the art direction is so precise and awesome. And it isn't just the art direction, the music, dialogue and set design (for some reason, set seems a more fitting word than level) all work in tandem to recreate an iconic Wild West atmosphere. Red Dead Revolver doesn’t aim to recreate life in the Wild West, it allows our imagination to take over and populates the locale with legendary men and their legendary stories.

Playing on iPhone

edge - Well I never thought I'd consider playing a game on iPhone as actually gaming, but edge has turned me around. The game is built for the iPhone. Sure, it could be ported, but the elegance of what has been created is astounding, it boggles the mind and makes me wonder what amazing gems we'd receive if current gen consoles weren't clones of eachother.

Playing on PC

Sins of a Solar Empire, Demigod, Generals - Zero Hour - It may be a temporary effect as I slowly reintroduce the PC into my gaming diet, but it seems every title I’m excited to play on the platform is either a strategy game, or a cheap indie game. PC gaming isn’t dead, it’s just restricted to titles that require complex input or a pointing device, and games that couldn't be developed or distributed on other platforms. I guess that’s part of the reason the AppStore is so far a success, there were a lot of indie devs stuck on PC for lack of a better alternative.
