The open nature of PC gaming and huge array of component choices means it’s possible to create a custom design which follows a particular colour scheme. Talented modders also manage to honour their favourite game, or produce something which looks absolutely stunning. However, the locked hardware on consoles means it’s up to the manufacturer to offer any variation on the standard skin. Thankfully, there are quite a lot of these which helps to cater towards console players rather well.
For example, the limited edition Destiny PlayStation 4 opts for a white theme, and gorgeous logos. On another note, part of the appeal of using consoles to some users is the single specification. As a result, it’s easy to find the correct hardware to play games without any technical knowledge.
To mark the upcoming release of Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft commissioned a custom PlayStation 4 which adopts a very archaic design. The project was spearheaded by stonemason, Nick Roberson who has over 20 years of experience in Hollywood creating similar concoctions. When speaking about the design, he said:
“This project was a great challenge for me and I really enjoyed seeing the modern and techy items come together in this natural form. The buttons of the controllers were certainly tricky but I’m delighted with the final results and the fantastic way they’ve been collated for the shoot.”
Tom Goldberger, Senior PR Manager at Ubisoft also weighed in on this wonderful creation and said:
“This project was undertaken to highlight the vast landscape and rich setting of the Stone Age era in Far Cry Primal,”
“Nick has managed to immortalize, in stone, the beautiful, elegant designs of these iconic items with unbelievable accuracy.”
As you can see from the photos below, the finish is absolutely breathtaking and exemplifies an unprecedented level of craftsmanship.
