Original PlayStation gets must-see LEGO Ideas pitch

Over the years, many video game concepts have been submitted through the LEGO Ideas program, and some have actually been released. PlayStation fans will surely hope that this is the case for a redesign based on Sony’s original video game console. Submitted by user robymuso90, the design is an incredibly faithful take on the first version of the system, unlike the rounder PS1 remodel released later in the system’s lifespan. The top of the system can be opened and it even comes with controllers and a memory card!

At the time of writing, the entry has more than 4,200 supporters, out of the 10,000 required for LEGO’s official consideration. Readers can check out the official LEGO Ideas page for the entry and offer their support here. A video of the entry was shared on Twitter by @Lego_Maniacs and can be found in the tweet below.

The original PlayStation is one of the greatest video game systems of all time. The platform played host to many games that are now considered all-time classics, including Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear solid, resident evil, and more. It’s impossible to overstate the impact the console had on the video game industry as a whole, and those who grew up with the platform have many fond memories of it. If the submission were approved, it wouldn’t be the first time a video game console has been officially replicated in LEGO bricks; LEGO versions of the Nintendo Entertainment System and Atari 2600 have both been released.

It should be noted that getting the required number of supporters is only one piece of the puzzle and is not a guarantee that the set will be made. LEGO has to weigh a number of factors, including the licensing costs that would be associated with such a release. Still, the project is approaching halfway and still has more than 500 days to gain more supporters. Hopefully this is a LEGO idea coming to market!
