This Is One Extremely Rugged Portable PlayStation 3

Legendary console modder Ben Heck's creations are normally quite elegant, but when a couple in Afghanistan asked for something rugged, he gave them this majestic beast.

What you're looking at is a PlayStation 3 built into an existing Pelican Storm case. It features a 22 inch LCD display, built-in speakers, networking, a TV tuner, and a little storage space to keep everything nice and compact.

The mod was built for a couple in Afghanistan that were looking for something portable enough to lug around with them yet tough enough to survive being banged up. Weighing in at around 30 pounds, this custom PlayStation 3 should fit the bill nicely.
