Hori Reveals an External LCD Display Add-on for Playstation 4

We previously reported on a Toro covered Playstation 4 at this year’s Ani-Com and Games Expo, but there was also something else of note shown off at the convention in Hong Kong.

Peripheral maker Hori is apparently working on a top mounted LCD display for the Playstation 4, which you can view above next to a PS4 covered with a sticker from The Last of Us.

Here’s some more shots of the display, courtesy of Amazon Japan:

The display itself has headphone outputs (which you could also do with the Dualshock 4’s headphone port, or via a bluetooth headset), and it can display in full 1080p. However, it’s refresh rate is somewhat slow at 25ms, so you probably don’t want to be playing a fighting game on this display.

The add-on costs 29,252 yen, or roughly $287 dollars, before tax and importing fees of course. I know a lot of people will find this piece of kit incredibly dumb, but I grew up in the era of ridiculous and tacky gaming peripherals and add-ons, so I’m basically frothing at the mouth here.

If you’re so bold as to pre-order it, you can do so via the monitor’s Amazon Japan page, found here.

    For that amount you could buy a tv, if gaming on the go is the issue then that’s what the vita is for.

    Erm… why? what for?

    There was TV set for PSX… and it made sense, because it was smaller device… but PS4? Kinda too big for that… and like nonscpo kinda too expensive

    Still… most of times Hori is making great products…

    This is more for people who transport their system and have down time when they get where they are going while not having access to a TV or PC monitor. I use the PS3 version at work and it’s great. Very good display and highly mobile. Just need 1 electrical outlet. The Vita is ok, but lacks games and the analog sticks don’t work well for some games (fps).
