There's the PS4 Pro, and then KEI Studios' custom-built PlayStation2 Unify. Based on the best-selling game console of all-time, the PS2, this portable console is fully-functional, and even has a working disc drive. "In our home now PS2 has been pushing in earlier, but some of the games I want to play will come to mind.

Sony's PS4 Pro is great for racing games, but for something more realistic, you may need to check out this remote-controlled Nissan GT-R. You read that right, the automaker heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely with a DualShock 4 controller, and called it the "GT-R /C". It was driven by Mardenborough around Silverstone's National Circuit, where the car hit a top speed of 131 mph and averaged 76 mph. To make things easy (and safer), it was controlled from a helicopter that followed the race car around the track. "This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff. The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible. The response from the car when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. Steering, acceleration and braking were all intelligently configured, allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights," said Mardenborough.

The PlayStation Switch, also known as the PlayMan, shows what Sony's future portable game console could look like. Designed by Curved/Labs, this device works exactly like the Nintendo Switch, offering detachable joysticks and a standalone display. "The PlayMan won't be used in just two modes - handheld or TV docking station - but offers three possible fields of use. The device can either be connected to the TV via HDMI or, with attached controllers, be used as a handheld console. But furthermore a large, fully adjustable and above all robust joint allows for a comfortable solution to play while being out and about, without having to suffer from tired arms from holding up the weight of the whole handheld console," said the designers.
