Someone Has Built A Functioning PlayStation Out Of LEGO

The PlayStation is undoubtedly a legendary console. Selling over 104 million units and underscoring a generation of gaming, it’s truly no surprise that when gaming nostalgia is brought into conversation, the original PlayStation is one of the first names on the board. And as it turns out, it’s still got a pretty rampant fanbase.

Among those fans is Anthony John Clarke, who’s somehow managed to build a bricky tribute to the console.

Fan Creates Functioning PlayStation Out Of LEGO

Clarke, also known as bonkersbarman on TikTok, has built a functioning replica of one of the most iconic game consoles in history out of LEGO, and it’s incredibly intriguing. After bagging an old PlayStation from a car boot sale for only £1 (which is a total steal, to be fair), he decided the old box could do with a clean. After a look under the hood, it was clear that the console was chipped, basically allowing the console to play any PS1 games from any region, making the project a worthwhile one if he can make it his main hub for original PlayStation titles.

 

After tidying up some components, he strips the lot from the case that needed some serious love, and makes a start on building a new one - entirely out of LEGO. Fit with a completely depressing button and working reset switch, the console is missing a lid as of the first TikTok he posts of his progress, but the following video shows off his mockup of a lid with a working hinge to boot.

His progress isn’t completely finished just yet, but part of the fun is watching the progress of the LEGO PlayStation is part of the fun. We’re looking forward to seeing the final testament to one of the best consoles ever produced.
