A Dreamcast-themed PS4 Controller

This type of thing would normally be reserved for an Alanis Morrisette song, but hey - we're all about forgiving and forgetting here at the Junkyard. While it's probably true that the Dreamcast would have had a much longer natural lifespan had the PlayStation 2 not loomed into view so soon after Sega launched it, you can't deny that the PS2 was also a great system and brought lots of new features to the table. The PlayStation 4 is currently enjoying quite a bit of success though, and console customisation specialists Extreme Consoles clearly thought it was high time the PlayStation paid some respect to it's fallen adversary. Naturally, they've come up with this:
Dreamcast-themed PS4 Controller
Yep, a Dreamcast-themed PS4 controller. The accurately coloured face buttons, Dreamcast-branded centre button and VMU details are lovely. For maximum authenticity you could argue that they should have removed the right analogue stick; and obviously, there isn't an actual VMU slot because this isn't a Dreamcast-compatible joypad (as if you needed reminding)...but as a piece of hardware for a PS4-owning Dreamcast fan, you could do much worse. Also, reports that it beeps when you turn it on are unconfirmed. Here's a YouTube video showing the pad in all it's glory:

Me like! Haha! If I ever pick up a PS4 I'm looking into getting one of these puppies! :-D

As an owner of a PS4 and only one controller for it, this now comes top of my 'to buy' list. Really nice.

A lot of the controller mods are just stickers, which just feels cheap.

This one, though. So great! Just as cool as that 2600 mod I saw.

It's cool ain't it! I also need a second pad - one of these would be epic. I'd be afraid to use it though, in case the design wore off!

I know some may think im a bit crazy. I just cannot touch a Sony branded product after the demise of the Dreamcast. I also avoid any EA related games.
