For anyone of you that frequent swap-meets, the name PlayBox 4One sounds like one of those cheap Chinese knock-off consoles you’d see right next to the guy who sells knives and plagiarized video games. However, this is not one of them. This machine is the product of a man who had both an Xbox One and a Playstation 4 and decided to join the two into a laptop-style gaming machine.
The Dr. Frankenstein behind this Console Monster is seasoned modder Eddie Zarick, and he makes laptop versions of both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 as a hobby and sells them online. This one creation was only created once as a custom order Zarick received from a customer. He also sells what he calls The Playbook 4 and the XBook One (not kidding) for $1,500 each, which makes this particular duo-console machine to be roughly around $3,000.
If you’re curious to see how the PlayBox 4One looks, the images below were uploaded by Eddie Zarick himself via his blog:
Looks cool, right? Regardless of what the featured image implies, the PlayBox 4One can only power on one console at a time.
The last image is an inside look at how both the machines are able to be crammed into this pretty small laptop box. Unless you have the innate ability to determine which piece of tech is which, here’s some help: the Playstation 4 can be seen on the left side of the unit while the Xbox One takes up the right side. Both of which are connected to a series of adapters in order to set up the back panel where everything connects. Zarick assure everyone that regardless of how it seems, the device does not suffer any cooling issues.
Along with pictures of the device, Zarick also uploaded a video showcasing his creation which can be seen below. If you or any one you know would like to contact Eddie Zarick and arrange a deal to obtain one of his creations, you can click the link here which will direct you to his website.
If his prices are too high for you, then just grab your Xbox One and Playstation 4, tape them together, and set them next to your TV.
