With the new ‘Damnation’ video game coming out very soon, a heavy duty Playstation fan has steampunked his Sony PS3 to celebrate its release.

The new (old) edition of the PS3 is fully customized with wood veneer, an old radio valve, a pipe valve, a pressure gauge, assorted brass plumbing parts, and some trim.

The result is a beautiful 19th-century-looking gaming masterpiece that brings a beautiful old-school feel to the powerhouse that is the PS3 (liquid iron and instant rust work wonders.)

Scope the gallery, but be sure to look closely at the pressure gauge (it’s a ‘kill ratio,’ measuring bodies per minute…clever.) Stats for Wood Paneled Playstations Trending: Older & Mild
