Audiophiles might be familiar with Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound 9000 Mk3, which can switch between 6 discs, but what if you were to apply the same design to a PlayStation game console?

Yes, this game console would also be compatible with your favorite music CDs and / or movies, but if nothing else, it would serve as an interesting conversation piece.

It has a different appearance from a typical Playstation; it is more angular to be shown as a CD player and I wanted to express its analog sensibility. Unlike the usual method, when you insert a CD, the hidden speaker comes out to make a sound out of the main body. Its back has a simple design to make it easy to change HDD. It is designed to keep dust out of the console while you are changing the CD,” said Yeo.
