How To Make Your PS4 or Xbox One Look Like a Retro NES

Let’s be real for a second: The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One designs are hideous. Sure, both are great gaming consoles, but their cases employ the same look of every generic VCR from the 1980s. Thankfully, Etsy store-owner Decalgirl has a fix for that problem.

Decalgirl had been making high-quality vinyl stickers for more than a decade, and her Etsy store offers dozens of cool ones that add personality to boring monochromatic machines like the iPad and MacBook. The real appeal of her sticker store, however, is the retro NES series she made for all the new consoles including the Wii U, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The stickers are pretty damn easy to fix to your console. The store also promises there will be no air bubbles thanks to the type of vinyl the stickers are printed on. The best part about it is the price. For $20 (plus about $5 in shipping costs), you get large vinyl stickers that cover the front, top, and sides of your gaming console. Now you won’t feel so bad looking at that ugly black box at the center of your living room.

I recently got something similar because my SO can’t stand the look of the XB1. So I “classed it up” to match our decor with a little Walnut veneer. The quality is better than I expected.
