There's a toy-like charm to Call of Duty: Black Ops III's exclusive PlayStation 4 bundle, but let's not beat around the bush – it's pretty freakin' bad, isn't it? Sony had a real opportunity to create something special here, but this is easily the worst looking new-gen system to date. Still, kudos to PlayStation Access' Hollie Bennett for not puking all over it in the embedded unboxing video.
Yes it's crap. Nevermind.
I don't think its 'that' bad. Admittedly its not a ptch on the Destiny TTK or Star Was: BF consoles. Its not very imaginative either but its design is in keeping with the game. I think it would have been better to have the blue top light being orange and forming part of thee III logo.
I don't like the grey on the controller though.
Better than the mgs5 one, not as good as TTK but darth vader one is the best
The MGS one looks great this looks really cheap.
Nah... I really hate the colour on the mgs ps4,im not saying blops3 one is anything special but I do prefer it to the mgs one
I like the controller but the actual system is ugly and unimaginative. The special anniversary PS4 and MGSVs are still the best editions I've seen.
Only thing I like it's that the whole system is matte black with no glossiness, other than that, it's a very ugly system, with a very ugly controller.
I'd love to know how well these special edition consoles actually sell in relation to the regular ones in the same time period.
Personally I'd never buy one of these over a standard black or white one - they must appeal to some people though because they keep bringing them out!
Honestly every custom PS4 console version in NA has been hideous except maybe the destiny versions, but then you get destiny a game which feels like it's missing a lot.
@Cron_13 I'd never buy one of these custom consoles either. I think they look cheap and often tacky too compared to the standard black consoles. I did like the Destiny TTK console but still wouldn't buy it.
They are often very quickly dated too but the standard remains timeless. The plain Black also fits in so much better with my other hardware and decor. I really don't want my front room looking like a kids bedroom!
MS does the limited edition consoles better, imo. That said, I'm also somebody who prefers to just go for the standard console. I will buy collector's edition controllers if they are appealing enough.
Not getting all the hate. It's nothing to write home about one way or another - the very definition of mediocre.
The console is not appealing but I wouldn't mind that controller though
Omg! That's is so ATARI! That thing just needs a fake wood sticker, and it's all VCS
The console itself is fine. But that controller is the worst...
@Gamer83 agreed, the halo 4 360, or currently halo one, and the super duper limited skyrim 360 are a great example of how ms does custom consoles brilliantly. Sony on the other hand can do great controllers, is getting better with the consoles. Then again, that fallout 4 x1 controller is a beaut. But i rather like my 20th anni ds4.
The 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 controller is the favorite collector's item I have in my possession. If I wanted to spend the extra money, I'd spring for the Forza 6 custom Xbox One console but too many games to blow $350 on another system, especially since I already own a standard X1.
Really ugly, but at least has a 1TB storage capacity.
I must admit, I have purchased a few 'custom' controllers in the past - mostly for the 360 (Gears 3, Tomb Raider) but as these are not on display, I don't think it matters so much. My consoles are next to a Sky+ HD box (black) and a Home Theatre system (Black) with Speakers (black) inc a big Subwoofer and centre speaker. Even my TV has a black bezel. Nearby is my Hub and Telephone - both Black.So I wouldn't buy anything other than black given the choice.
I know its not a 'custom' controller but my XB1 Elite is my favourite looking controller this gen so far. The brushed metal on the satin black finish does look 'classy'. I hope Sony does something similar in the near future.
The trouble with the BO3 console is that next year, it will be out of date when the next CoD and probably console bundle is released!
More brown short haired white dude characters. Yay.
Look like something from Nintendo ... especially the controller buttons colors.
Yeah, that Forza 6 X1 is pretty sweet. I also like the Halo 5 console.
