Serial tinkerer Eddie Zarick has created what can only be described as an Xbox One-PlayStation 4 hybrid game console mod. Zarick calls his creation the Playbox – a laptop-resembling device that combines both consoles into a single case, decked out with a 1080p 22-inch screen.
This isn’t the first time Zarick has messed around with intricate game console mods. Zarick was put on the map a while back after turning an Xbox One and PS4 into individual “laptops” as well as creating, what he refers to as, the Xbook Duo: a unit containing both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The Playbox, meanwhile, features the best of both worlds. The revolutionary contraption houses a PS4 on the left side and an Xbox One on the right. While the same cord seemingly powers both consoles, they cannot be turned on simultaneously for fear of overheating. However, there is a switch on the back that allows you to switch from one console to the other.
According to the Verge, Zarick is not currently selling any of his Playboxes – Zarick says this prototype was built for a custom order. This being said, his regular Xbook Duos sells for a nifty $1,500 while the Playbook 4s go for roughly $1,400, with even cheaper prices if customers supply their own consoles.
