This beautiful PS5 redesign is the best console mod yet

Whatever you think of the PS5's gargantuan, bright white design, there's no denying that it was made to stand out. From coveted black faceplates to a water-cooled design, we've seen all sorts of PlayStation 5 mods – but this is the first that's designed to actually blend into your home.

Calling the redesign a 'Stealthy PS5', DIY Perks details the process of stripping away everything but the core of the console, then re-assembling it to fit the svelte new form factor. And made from a combination of carbon fibre and walnut hardwood, the outer shell is simply stunning. It makes that water-cooled PS5 mod look positively garish.

In the meantime, there's always these awesome Nintendo Switch deals
