Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia announced today three new products which will debut on July 27 at Wonder Festival 2014 in Chiba, near Tokyo. The products, which are all set for release between October 2014 and early 2015 in Japan are the first in a new line-up of officially licensed PlayStation offers.

The first is probably the most interesting, in the form of an actually transformable 190 mm Optimus Prime toy produced by Takara Tomy, which won’t transform in the usual truck, but into the original PlayStation. No. I’m not kidding. Quite obviously the PlayStation doesn’t actually work, and will be released early next year.

Then we have a line of 1/6 scale miniature of the PS2 (fat and slim), PS3 (fat, slim and super slim) and PS4, still produced by Takara Tomy. Each will come bundled with its controller and accessories. The Fat PS2 will include a memory card the external hard disk, the slim PS2 will get the memory card as well. The fat PS3 will get a miniature Move and a PlayStation Eye. The slim PS3 will come with a Torne unit. The superslim will include a Nasne, while the PS3 will also include its PlayStation Camera.

Finally, Union Creative will release a set of transparent mini-DualShock 2 controllers that double as smartphone straps and earphone jack protectors.  They measure about 30 mm and will be released in October.

Below you can check out pictures of all the products announced. Aren’t they super cute?

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
