155w ago - Today Engadget.com (linked above) reposts that video game console modder Ben Heck has unveiled his latest ruggedized, self-contained PlayStation 3 suitcase modification in The Ben Heck Show (Episode 9).
The military-grade PlayStation 3 is intended for use in Afghanistan, and features a 22″ LCD screen, built-in speakers, TV tuner, network switch and storage compartment.
Some pictures of it are below, and to quote: "The military-grade portable gaming system was designed and built for a couple working with the military overseas, and it's Pelican's iM2600 Store Case there on the outside keeping things safe and secure from flying shrapnel.
As Ben always does, he managed to carefully place an entire PS3 console deep within the confines of the enclosure, and he even threw in an integrated LCD into the lid to prevent any additional external hookups. Generator equals gametime, as they say."
166w ago - A few weeks back we reported on a Bad Company 2 Edition Custom PS3 Slim by jriquelmeyt, and today he posted another creation via MandiocaGamer (linked above) which he named the Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition PlayStation 3 Slim mod.
To quote: "I'm Javier Riquelme, jriquelme, from Asuncion-Paraguay, and this is my new Mod.
Here, a crappy video, and some photos from the process. Enjoy!... I hope you like it."

222w ago - This is the first PlayStation 3 Slim case mod I've seen... for $149 you can customize the look of your current PS3 Slim, or get a new PlayStation 3 Slim already customized starting at $449 from ColorWare.
Using their PS3 Slim Design Studio interface it allows you to change the color of the PS3 Slim's top, bottom, logo and controllers to see what it will look like in different color combinations. Cool stuff!
To quote: "They have pulled out all the stops to not only colorize the console but the controller as well. You can customize the color of the PS3 logo, the top of the console, or the bottom.
Basically you can turn your PS3 Slim into a technicolor dreamcoat if you wanted. ColorWare would have it no other way. Once colorized, everything is high-gloss and scratch resistant. It's better than a paint job on your car!"
