The future of gaming is here, and it looks cooler than we could've ever imagined. Our iCarbons staff was not only able to play some games on the Playstation Slim as we worked to design skins for it, but also got an opportunity to test out the newly-released Playstation Virtual Reality Headset. The gaming was amazing, especially for such a new technology. The graphics look fantastic, and although it does depend on which game you play with it, for the most part, you will be completely engrossed in the experience. A few of the faster-paced games can be a bit overwhelming, but that's due to how real everything moving around you feels.
Overall, gaming with VR is very surreal and takes time to get used to, but we can easily see it becoming a popular tool used for immersive storytelling in games. I found myself constantly forgetting that my hands couldn't just reach out and grab items that seemed to be directly in front of my face. In addition, the long line-up of games that Sony plans to release for the headset makes the device a must-have for elite gamers as well as people that are just looking for a new and exciting way to experience video games. After seeing for ourselves how awesome the VR Headset is, we knew it would be crazy not to create skins that add vivid colors in order to enhance the headset's futuristic design. We've also released Playstation Slim skins so that your cool Playstation gaming set-up can be made up of matching colors, as well as the ability to customize the look to fit your own aesthetic and make your device unique. Order yours today and be sure to leave a comment telling us what you think of the Virtual Reality Headset!
Playstation 4 or Xbox One? It's the flame war of our time! Which has the best game play, the best user experience? Each gamer must decide for themselves!
As for us here at iCarbons HQ, we're pretty much into both. Back in November, we were stoked to acquire both consoles, create skins to customize them, and of course spend countless hours testing both out to the Nth degree. It's a tough job, but we'll totally do it!
Our solid and two tone PS4 skins & Xbox One skins have been a huge hit, and we've been loving all the customer feedback. With this has come a flood of requests for accessory and controller skins to match. So guess what!? *drumroll*
We are thrilled to announce the release of protective decals for both, now available and shipping for your customization pleasure! Check out some pictures below to see them in action.
Xbox One Kinect and controller skins
PS4 Camera and controller skins

iCarbons.com was contacted sometime in October of last year with the statement - "Get the PlayStation® Vita one week before the official release date with this first edition bundle. Includes PS Vita (Wi-Fi® and 3G), 4GB memory card, limited edition case and Little Deviants game." - Well that's all we needed to hear!
Four months later we were the first in line at GameStop, no wait time. Just walked in, showed our receipt (while mentioning our iCarbons Dark Wood Skin on the PS3 behind the desk) handed out a few business cards to some excited gamers, and headed back to iCarbons Inc.
During the templating process, we made a few adjustments and tests to ensure the rear multi-touch pad would work perfectly through the iCarbons skin covering it. To our excitement, it worked flawlessly without any issues or hiccups.
Then came the Big question, who wants to test this out for a while to make sure it feels natural and comfortable?
Obviously this would take some time . . .
"Sure thing Boss, I don't mind playing Uncharted Golden Abyss & Little Deviants for an hour to test it out! Its a job and someone has to do it."
Of course we had to have a little fun with it. Needed to check out the:
• Advanced cutting edge Game-play
• Amazing Graphics on this Handheld Beast
• Impressive touch sensitivity equal to the Apple iPhone 4S
• And how beautiful it looks & feels with an iCarbons Skin perfectly designed for it
After the final version was created & thoroughly tested, it was time for a photo-shoot & then added to our website. As you can see, iCarbons looks AMAZING on this device, and as a side benefit, the texture of the skin keeps the Vita from getting smudges on the back and makes it easier to glide our fingers on the rear multi-touch pad.
The Final Product Looks STUNNING!
