With Far Cry Primal set to launch for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 23rd and PC March 1st, Ubisoft today released a range of stunning photos of a hand-crafted Sony PlayStation 4 and DUAL SHOCK 4 controllers by Stonemason Nick Roberson, to mark the upcoming launch of the latest title in the acclaimed series.
The gorgeous PlayStation 4 with controllers were designed by master carver and stone mason Roberson from hand to promote the upcoming open-world title set in 10,000BC. Not content with creating the classic console by hand Roberson was also commissioned to craft an entire gaming den from hand-carved Fletcher Band sandstone. Decked out with a stone television set, pizza box, beer can and carved coffee table – image below.
Roberson, who has previously been commissioned to work on Hollywood movies work is simply stunning and a great prehistoric take on the contemporary items gamers worldwide will be used to seeing.

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.”[/box]
