PlayStation 4 becomes a “laptop” in PlayBook 4 mod

PlayStation 4 becomes a “laptop” in PlayBook 4 mod

Tired of sitting around at home all day but don't really want to be separated from your favorite console game? That wouldn't be a problem if you were of the Xbox One gaming type and could a afford an "xbook". But now even PlayStation gamers can enjoy partial mobility, thanks to Ed Zarick and his latest innovation, the PlayBook 4, that gives you a portable PS4 in a laptop form.

Xbox One laptop mod takes console on the road

Xbox One laptop mod takes console on the road

Turning a regular console into a portable version isn't new, but Xbox One gamers seem to have been too busy playing so far to have taken the time to convert their Microsoft system into a "laptop" form factor.

Saints Row SDK coming soon: modding community taking hold

Saints Row SDK coming soon: modding community taking hold

Saint's Row is a game that's brought a rather odd assortment of open-world experiences to the fingertips of PC gamers for several generations. It's a game that exists in the Grand Theft Auto-like universe of open sandbox playability: here offering a place for gamers to run around like wild, doing whatever they might, driving, interacting with fellow characters, and everything in-between. This world is strange, and with Saint's Row IV, it's about to get a lot stranger: but up until now, the game has been closed to the modders of the world.

Modbook Pro makes MacBook a serious tablet

Modbook Pro makes MacBook a serious tablet

Back before Apple announced the original iPad, the Modbook team set out to take existing MacBook Pros and turn them into standalone tablets. The idea was to take the internals and add a touchscreen into the mix, giving you a powerful yet relatively portable tablet running full blown OS X. Now the company is back, and has today announced the Modbook Pro, taking the current-generation 13-inch MacBook Pro and runs with the tablet conversion.
