Japan Finally Has a Cool Custom PS4 Console to Look Forward To

Thank the Traveller
Credit must go to Sony’s industrious Japanese arm for at least attempting to boost the region’s abysmal PlayStation 4 sales with some custom console designs – it’s just a shame that it’s been producing some real abominations of late. After the horror of the Frozen and The Last of Us bundles, we expected the worst when we read that Destiny – which will be exclusive to PlayStation platforms in the East – would be getting a tailored next-gen hardware bundle, too, but this is fortunately the best of the lot.
An adapted iteration of the Glacier White model that’s set to release in the West this September, the console comes with a unique hard drive face plate, sporting the logo of Bungie’s impending first-person shooter in gun metal grey. Alright, it’s not the most imaginitive design ever, but at least this one doesn’t make us want to puke. The platform will retail for ¥46,980 ($463/£271) when it deploys later this year, and comes with a copy of the game.
Would you take this system with you on your intergalactic travels, or dump it in Old Russia? Let us know in the comments section below.
