I am not a fan of custom consoles, as a rule. Generally, when nerds are allowed to customize something, whether it’s a console or a van, it generally turns into a monstrosity. And sometimes, these monstrosities are mass-produced. Like this one!
Clearly designed for the people who buy a console to play Call of Duty and nothing else, this particular beast is, well, hideous. People forget that military gear is not designed with aesthetics in mind; it’s purely functional. So coating an Xbox One in black and grey paint, slapping some yellow accents on there, and covering it in Clancy-esque gibberish (complete with QR code!) does not make for an attractive console, and an even uglier controller. Seriously, this thing belongs in a filthy apartment, sitting on the floor in front of a flatscreen that costs more than the furniture that surrounds it.
At Least It’s Useful
As ugly as this thing is, and please, don’t spend $500 on this beast, it does at least come with some decent goodies. For one thing, you get a 1 TB hard drive built in, which is a nice touch that will probably go entirely unused as the people who buy this don’t play video games. It also comes with, as you may have guessed, a free download of the next Call of Duty, where you have jetpacks. It does not come with the Kinect, because everybody hates the Kinect.
As you may have guessed, I think it’s a bad idea to spend $500 on a warning symbol that you are trapped in a perpetual adolescence. Unless you are a teenager, in which case, how do you have $500 and why are you spending it on this? Get a car! The gender of your choice will be way more impressed you can drive, even if it is a junker!
