Eddie Zarick is back, and this time he has created a laptop which combines both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in one portable device.

The PlayBox, as it's called, is the newest and "probably last" portable console Zarick will make.

Over on his website he explains that the entire device only uses one power cord and "took a lot of attempts and reconfiguring to make everything fit."

Zarick says that "some things had to be compromised to make the system work," such as the Xbox One USB ports having to be extended to the outside of the casing.

The Playbox is a prototype Zarick made for a customer, and won't be for sale. He says that he may build more in the future, but the "high cost and complexity of the process" will mean the price will be more than his $1,500 Playbooks and Xbooks.

Take a look at the video below to hear Zarick explain how he built the custom laptop, and to get a closer look at it.

Previously last year we saw Zarick's other custom laptop creations; the Xbook Duo (Xbox 360 and Xbox One laptop); the Playbook 4 (PS4 laptop); and the Xbook One (Xbox One laptop).
