The Sony fan in your life is sure to dig this new range of furniture, tastefully (or not-so-tastefully) adorned with those iconic Triangle, Circle, Square and Cross designs.
Wondering what to get for that gamer in your life this holiday season? Well, if they’ve been very, very good this year, you might want to drop $250 on an official PlayStation-branded bean bag for them.
That’s right, friends. It’s (almost) that magical time of year where our love for each other just has to manifest itself in the most hideously commercial of forms.
Are you a long-time PlayStation fan? Maybe you’re a newcomer to the whole scene, finally convinced to hop on the bandwagon by some of this year’s formidable releases. With the likes of God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man (the director of which claimed that he owes everything to PlayStation) hitting this year, it’s as good a time as any to join the Sony side.
However long you’ve been playing and enjoying Sony systems, it’s every gamer’s dream to have their own little gaming hideaway, or deck out their entire living room in gaming regalia, in extreme cases. To help you achieve this goal, The PlayStation Blog has unveiled a new furniture line, dubbed the PBteen Collection inspired by PlayStation.
Sadly, the store is currently unavailable in Europe (thanks to internet usage rules), but if you live elsewhere, you can check it out here.
What’s on offer? The aforementioned beanbag, a wall light, a lounge table, media console, and more (Destructoid reports that the acrylic game cubby is far more awesome-looking than it sounds). Everything is presented in quite stylish and muted tones (it’s all very grey-and-black, as you’d expect), and is all-round pretty darn nice-looking. It’s overtly PlayStation, sure, but not in a super-tacky sort of way.
As you’d probably expect, the items in the collection come at a premium price, but it’s surprisingly desirable gear. This isn’t really something Nintendo could pull off, after all. Imagine the super-bright Mushroom Kingdom colors everywhere, Mario’s grinning face on your wall… this is the lesser of two interior design evils without a doubt.
