Custom PS4 HDD Cover idea

6 replies 591 views Edited Jul 27, 2014

I think it'd be pretty cool if Sony, or better yet, an aftermarket company made custom HDD covers for the PS4. They are very easy to remove. 

 

I would defintely buy themed versions or cool colors like chrome or something..thoughts?

there are ones out already. for killzone, infamous. and final fantasy

amazon had them bundled with the gold headset.

and if you want a custom one. just customize your own.

Currently Sony Japan is the only place selling stock replacement HDD bay covers.  I tried to order a bunch to customize but they won't ship overseas and won't sell in large numbers.  With how easy the stock one scratches, I'd have to imagine there is a market for custom ones.  I'd love to get one that is matte black like the rest of the system.

I'm talking about a realistic approach, not spending 200 dollars on ebay for a special edition. I mean like a company making them for like 20 bucks, and having different color options.

 

I dont really want to customize mine, I'd like to keep it stock incase it has a defect or I want to sell it.

there are already quite a few websites/companies that make pre-made, and/or custom vinyl decals for the consoles. 

 

the thing to remember though, is that if sony, or any 3rd party company wants to use "established" images/characters/games, then they'll have to negotiate a deal with the IP holders to use that license. now, i could see sony doing that, as they already do with themed consoles, but a 3rd party company might not have the capital to pay the licensing fees.
