The PlayStation 4 Bruce Lee Edition

Back in 2014 Retired boxer Mike Tyson is giving away a yellow, Bruce Lee-inspired Limited Edition PS4 on his Facebook page, along with a copy of EA SPORTS UFC.

Not one to follow the rules, Tyson must be unaware of Facebook’s policy over competition giveaways, which states that you cannot run competitions via your own personal timeline. Either that or he's classed as a business who are allowed to post competitions that encourage users to 'Like' and 'Share'.

Nevertheless, the prize is pretty cool. Who wouldn’t want a win a yellow PS4?

 

We have a different picture on our console variations page,  but here is the official Facebook Post:

The Facebook post had over 88 Thousand likes, and more then 25 thousand shares.

Top 10 cutest Game Consoles (Part 1)

Okay, let's do this list for a change and some fun. Every so often a console hits the shelves that doesn’t really seem to fit anywhere. Sometimes video game companies and their designers are super brave, just want to try something new or have a specific target market they want to address. Over the years a number of consoles were released that were somewhat odd, scary, weirdly shaped and so on.

 

One very interesting “theme” are surely the cute consoles out there. If intentional or not, we are going to choose our Top 10 of the cutest video game consoles out there.

New Xbox added! Xbox Superman Edition

One of our fans has linked us to a very rare Xbox system that is currently being sold on Craigslist!

This is a Xbox Super Man Edition that was given to Microsoft employees.

In the auction it is saying the following:

 

The original owner of this edition retired from Microsoft a number of years ago. At that time he sold it to the current owner. Unfortunately, the papers verifying this have been lost. But if you inspect closely you will see that this Superman Logo is not a sticker or attached in any such way. You will see that it was put on during manufacturing.

 

The Xbox even has a matching controller!

This is the only one in existence.
It has been autographed by Penelope Jimenez (March 2003 Playboy Playmate).
The xbox is 100% functional and has only been used/tested once to verify that it was working correctly.
My wife took an instant disliking to this xbox so it has been hidden in the wardrobe all this time.
The xbox includes all power and connector cables and comes with one black hand controller.
ONCE AGAIN THIS HAS BEEN CUSTOMIZED AND AUTOGRAPHED BY PLAYBOY AUSTRALIA and was a 1st prize.
There is no other xbox like this in Australia......it's a one only opportunity.
This makes it collectable and it would look great on display behind the bar or in a theater room.

Local Pickups are welcome.
I will road freight to any where is Australia for $36 ( cost is due to its weight and size.)"

Taiwanese N64 controller found after 20 years!

Okay, this topic might be a little bit specific but hear us out. On of the admins of consolevariations.com is a huge N64 controller nerd. He actually has 32/32 N64 Controller variations CIB, including everyone of the top rarest. But because this was not enough he started collecting solid controllers from all around the world.

 

 

The controllers are all the same 6 colors but the text on the box is different according to the country they sold in. Releases include: England, USA, Australia, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Brazil…but also Scandinavia, BeNeLux and of course Japan. For the longest time it was suspected that the Asian regions all got the Japanese style packaging. 10 years ago someone discovered a slightly different Hong Kong version with English on the box. A few years ago the Hyundai Comboy controller from Korea was discovered, but we still could not verify the packaging.
