Console mods


Recommended Posts

I made a thread awhile back about modding consoles (not necessarily firmware/software but physical appearance mods) and I was talking about how I wanted to mod my PS2 further. (I only painted it blue and added a window if you remember)


I figured with the Wii, PS3 and 360 out now there are probably a lot of cool mods about.


Whats new in console modding?



I've seen a lot of Wii mods (seems like its popular to shove into different things; Who doesn't want to shove their wii into anything they can?).

I haven't seen anything spectacular be done with PS3.


360 nothing there really either, that Lian Li box is kickass though.

I realize the 360 is setup fairly closely to a computer setup but you'd think that Lian Li (or any other company) would make a PS3 case as well.




The news article about the rumoured PS3 slim was what got me thinking about this...

Wii: Backups and EMUs (just about all of them) using softmod

PS3: homebrew games and iffy EMUs, no backups, Sony supports homebrew

Xbox360: homebrew still in the works, only Backups using Firmware flashing dvdrom.


other than switching the case and LED lighting you can't do much unless its on the wii.

Turning consoles into a portable laptop.


Clear/windowed case with a "topless" dvd drive (removed external cover). Some case lighting to bring it out.


Some cool wicked steampunk case mod.


This is a PC, not a console.


Led lit controller buttons http://www.gamermodz.com/





Wall-E Wii :P


Some laser etching or laser cutting.

As for PS3's I really haven't seen any case mods where anyone has opened it. The only 2-3 PS3 case mods I've seen are just external.
