To make the launch of Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft Entertainment got around to creating a hand-crafted Sony PlayStation4 and DUAL SHOCK 4 controllers.
Why? Because why the heck not.
Nick Roberson, a master carver and stone mason, was commissioned to replicate the console and controllers from a block of stone in honour of the latest game in the Far Cry franchise.
If that’s not enough, Roberson was also commissioned to craft an entire gaming man-cave from sandstone. The den was also kitted out with a stone television, pizza box, beer can and an impressive carved coffee table.
Again, because why not.
Here’s a video of the main pieces being chiselled.
“This project was undertaken to highlight the vast landscape and rich setting of the Stone Age era in Far Cry Primal. Nick has managed to immortalise, in stone, the beautiful, elegant designs of these iconic items with unbelievable accuracy.”
Tom Goldberger, Senior PR Manager at Ubisoft.
“This project was a great challenge for me and I really enjoyed seeing the modern and techy items come together in this natural form. The buttons of the controllers were certainly tricky but I’m delighted with the final results and the fantastic way they’ve been collated for the shoot.”
