Insane Engineer Ends Console War, Combines Xbox One And PS4 Into Epic ‘PlayBox’ Laptop

It’s official, folks — we can finally stop arguing over which is the superior game console, thePlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Quite frankly, it’s a pointless debate, and it took a self-taught engineer to put the argument to rest, which he did by combining both game systems into a 22-inch laptop. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the “PlayBox,” a gaming laptop that’s equal parts Xbox One and PS4 rolled into one.

The PlayBox wins the argument because it allows you to play games on either system, and when it comes down to it, the ability to play games is all that matters. Built for a “specific customer,” the owner of this prototype system needn’t worry about exclusives since he now has a system that can play them all, and do it while taking up no more space than a single console.

Therein lies the real beauty of this mod — Ed Zarick, the engineer referenced above, crammed both consoles into a 22-inch laptop form factor that’s the same size as an Xbook Duo, a previous mod of his that combined an Xbox 360 and Xbox One into a single frame.

It looks like a chunky laptop with an integrated 22-inch Vizio screen. However, it’s not a simple case of shoehorning two console boxes into a case and calling it a day. Instead, Zarick carefully disassembled each console and transferred their respective guts into a new, shared body.

“This system took a lot of attempts and reconfiguring to make everything fit and still some things had to be compromised to make the system work, for example it was impossible to get the USB ports on the Xbox to be extended to the outside of the case,” Zarick explains. “But the unit does offer Ethernet ports for both units (WiFi for both units also works) Along with HDMI Out. Switching between the units is as easy as flipping the Red switch on the back of the unit. You can not power both units at the same time, I do it this way so you dont overheat the system. There is a Smart HDMI switcher inside that automatically selects the active input, that way you do not need to worry about making sure your on the right input. Just power it on and Play!”
