The $2000 PS4 ULTIMATE Build

– Hey guys, this is Austin! And welcome to the ultimate PS4 build-off – Last time around, team Ken defeated team Austin in the battle of the Nintendo Switches

This time around Austin, we're gonna to bring you a team mate who actually might be able to help you out Quinn, from Snazzy Labs (clapping) – How is it going? – We got this, we got this – Yeah, we do – And Ken, we enlisted you with a new team member

UrAverageConsumer, Jud – Ken, my man – Yeah, we're gonna win this, because he's incompetent (laughing) – So, we're gonna be judged on three different categories First one is best creativity

After creativity, we're gonna go ahead and have craftsmanship, and then the last judging category is going to be least amount of money spent just like last time, but instead of a $500 budget, we're gonna go ahead and give you guys $1,000 this time around (cheering) So here you go, – Oh, look at that – Here is $1,000 (cheering) – Here we go – And here's another, there's

– Oh, that was– – Actually, that's only $900 (everyone laughing) And then also, one other caveat we're gonna be playing with So, we have two different envelopes In 45 minutes, you'll be instructed to open up these envelopes for further instruction – Definitely didn't just open the envelope

– For the first time ever – First time – Definitely didn't just open it – Did you take a peek? – Nope, nope, I– – Oh, that's cheating! – We didn't, we didn't – Cheating off the jump

– He's cheating! Did you see that? – We didn't see, we didn't see – All right, so you guys got 45 minutes, judging is gonna start at 2:30 on the dot We got the cameras rolling – All right, let's– – Go ahead and take off, please

– [Jud] Let's do it – Let's do it up – Suck it, nerds – (laughs) Suck it nerds, we got this – [Quinn] The two nerds

– All right, Ken – Yeah – Ready? We got to talk this out – Yeah, yeah, yeah, we gotta win – We should one of two things

We should either build our PS4 in the same styling of the PS1, so say like we paint it gray and we do all this kind of stuff Or alternatively, we actually buy ourselves an original PS1 And like, maybe like build a PS4 and below it, right? – I was thinking about putting the PS4 in an aquarium – [Jud] Interesting – So we get a 55 gallon tank

We get a smaller tank, we put it in the middle We get like two betta fish, you know, swimming by Give them like some Playstation character names – [Jud] There you go – [Ken] And get some like LED lights in it

– I wonder, if we're getting a little creative, no one said that we have to cheat So if Armando from Pixel Vault Games, he is a big friend of the channel, he's helped us out many times, but if he were to say, give us a friendly discount, that seems perfectly reasonable – Of course – Let me shoot him a little text here – Why have clout if you can't utilize it, am I right? (laughing) – There we go, there we go, all right

– [Josh] So team Austin's first stop is a Hobby Lobby, where they hope to find a container to hide their PS4 in But they aren't having much luck Maybe it's time for a new idea? – We for sure can paint it But then I don't know, it's easier to just throw the PlayStation 4 in some random box and just pretend it's not there (alarm beeping) Oh, it's time

It's time – Pull out that envelope Well, maybe this will be a source of inspiration, we can change our entire plan – Yeah, what if it's like you have to paint it purple or something? – [Quinn] Oh, well I hope not, 'cause that's a pretty bad color for a PlayStation – I didn't lose the envelope, did I? – [Quinn] I should really hope not

– It's time to open it up – All right – Let's kinda see what we got going on in here – Oh man (laughs) – Josh, please

– Oh no – Oh, are you serious? – Oh, it's a QR code? – It's a QR code – Oh no – So let's figure this out, let's see what we've got going on over here – Oh, is it a video? – Yeah, it's a YouTube video

– He's gonna make us watch a video? All right – Man, oh man It is dark up in this studio, your boy looks like a silhouette So to solve this issue, I'm gonna go ahead and enlist both teams to get down with the mystery item So this time around, I want to brighten up my day with a lighting fixture of some sort; there we go

They could be– (laughter drowns out speaker) Whatever you like, if you include a lighting fixture of some sort on your final build, you'll have the chance to get $200 back on your final cost In the scenario where both teams include a lighting fixture, it's gonna be up to the judges to decide who did it best And whoever did do it best, gets $200 back and the other team gets a measly $70 So the choice is yours, do you– – So, we got this 200 bucks Ken – An aquarium IS the lighting fixture

– No, we got this – Oh man (phone ringing) – [Josh on Phone] Boss man – Josh, have I mentioned how much that you're really my favorite person? – Maybe once or twice – Okay, so, question for ya, if a team were to have lost their secret envelope, would that be a problem for the competition? Hypothetically speaking

– [Josh] Well, we do have a spare So it would not be a problem, but you don't have that spare apparently, because it's in my possession – You gotta gotta be kidding, right? Is that really what you're doing right now? Did you plan ahead because you knew I was gonna lose the envelope? – A good director has to be prepared, so you know, that's why I got another one – Are you telling me that I need to come back to the office right now? – [Josh] That does sound like that is the case I'm really sorry to break that news, but yeah, if you want to find out what that is, you gotta come back and get that envelope

– The fact that Josh has the envelope is such a huge relief for me I am so stressed right now, I'm so worried that I completely botched the first hour, because we were all the way over at Hobby Lobby We have to go all the way back to the office, then we get our actual challenge, and then we have to go back out and find whatever it is Like at this point, I think I may have just lost us the competition – I would agree

(laughing) – [Josh] Team Ken has arrived at IKEA Time to buy a portable cart to carry their aquarium – We got space for activities – [Josh] After wasting nearly half the day, team Austin has arrived back at the office to retrieve their envelope – Suck less next time

(laughs) – [Josh] Was coming back to the office even worth it? We'll have to wait and see Now checking back in on team Ken, they appear to have everything they need from IKEA All that's left is checkout, but this is not your average cashier – Awesome, hey, thank you very much, have a good day – Wait, before you leave, sign something

– Yeah, yeah, yeah – You got a phone? – You can sign my phone – Oh wow (laughing) That's a big deal man, you sure? – Yeah – Look at this famous guy over here

– No, this guy too, come on – Oh, he knows who we are, oh my God – You're a star man – I mean, I understand you, I was stunned (laughs) – You're a star; you're Ken Bolido, leader of this team

– I'm a star Yeah, leader, I don't know about star We'll work on that one (laughing) – [Quinn] Howdy – [Austin] Hey man, how's it going? – [Armando] Hey, how's it going– – Dude, so let me run an idea by you, all right? So we're trying to build a PS4, PS1 like hybrid thing

Right, and so we're going to just paint the PS4 to be like the same gray as the PlayStation 1 And we'll just stack the PS1 on top of the PS4 – You're gonna paint it? – We're gonna paint it (laughs) – [Austin] That's a lot of wind – You want me to do it? I could paint it for you

– Well that's not cheating, is it? – 'Cause you know, I do this stuff here, so You can say you did it, I don't care (laughing) – How long would it take to paint a PS4, 'cause– – Just bring it to me, and then I'll mask it, and then we'll paint it up in less than 20 minutes – (laughs) Yes! – I'm a little nervous about what the judges will think if they find out we haven't done it, but no, we can help – It's easy, it's easy

– We can help paint, right? – What we need to do is just not tell the judges until they're done judging We can do whatever we want, as soon as they're done and they rendered their verdict, we can admit to the crime, it's fine – That's the classic Austin Evans moral compass I know and love (laughs) – I mean, if you go to trial for murder and they say you're acquitted you go, "Excellent, thank you all, Your Honor, I did it" Can they really try you again? I don't think so, I think that's illegal

– Hmmm – [Austin] You know? – Also, side note, so I see a wonderful CRT here Would it be possible to, say, borrow that for the day? – Sure – I'm sorry, I mean rent it We will of course pay you per the rules of the competition to rent your wonderful CRT

– We have this one, and then we have that Sony CRT – Oh! Whoa – [Armando] That's a Sony Triniton also – Dude! – [Armando] And look how sharp this thing looks – That thing looks incredible

Dude, we got this – There you go – [Austin] There we go There we go [Josh] Meanwhile, team Ken has pulled the trigger on a used PS4

Now it's off to Best Buy to buy some speakers, a projector, and most importantly, an LED strip – Well, here's furniture – And TV stuff, so – Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh – Boom, there we go

(laughing) – There it is – There we go Good eye, my man (laughing) – I think it is this one, right, the four foot? – That is four feet – That's not two in stock, that's one in stock

– Seriously – [Josh] Meanwhile team Austin has made a quick detour to pick up a PS4 But for real, is anyone even here? – Hello? (surprised trilling) – Hey man, – Hey, hello, you guys – Armando sent us – Personally I like this one, 'cause this is the latest one before they turned into slim

– Oh, so it's still a little bit quieter and– – This is the best of both worlds (cheerful music) – The first money out of our hands today I think it's a very important purchase 'cause 240 bucks for a PS4, I think is pretty solid – Yeah, it's a pretty good deal – [Jud] Aw, look at this little guy

– Oh, here we go, so – Boom, all right – I think this is the one we were looking at, the 29 My worry was width, but we might be okay – Oh, width, like, the PS– The PlayStation's gonna fit in here

– Fit in here, yeah, yeah – That's gonna fit no problem – Okay, so that's That was my only concern – [Jud] Two 20 pound bags – Oh, 10% off, – [Jud] I'll take it

– It's damaged goods – We got any more damaged goods? (laughing) – Oh yeah, oh, that's our Kratos – This is our Kratos – That's our little Kratos – All right; oh yeah, this is Kratos

– That's Kratos – [Jud] Say no more – Ken, I think you like it more than just for this video, man – It's my child, it's my child I haven't taken care of fish in like 10 years, and it's been a while since I've had responsibility like that

I just have to feed it once a day instead of three – (laughs) There you go – Shall we grab some B-roll of one of us painting, so you know, they (laughs) – [Austin] They think that we did it? – See, we're useful I'm holding this paper

– We're hard at work right now – Just shield myself from the sun, I've never been outside this long (laughing) It's been like five minutes, help – Muscle team right here – We got this

– So we're back with 30 minutes left – Just 30 minutes – I'm low key freaking out, we've got a piece from IKEA, which I assume is going to take 30 minutes So getting that done is like the top priority – [Ken] It's crunch time

We gotta get things going, we got an aquarium to fill We gotta make sure our fish is okay, that our PS4 – Cable management – That it won't get wet – There's a lot

– A lot of moving pieces – [Josh] All right, it looks like Armando's paint job is complete, and it ain't looking too bad Now before we take off from Pixel Vault, we need to figure how much all of this is gonna cost – Let's just say, since we actually had to really, really do it super quick – Yeah, of course, rush job

– So, let's just say 25 bucks – That seems generous How about the rental fee for your CRT? – Rental fee? – 24 hour rental – I've never done a rental, you know you can always borrow the stuff so – No, no, no, I need to pay you, per the rules

– Oh, that's right – How much is it to rent that for 24 hours? [Josh] Okay, okay, we get it, Armando's got team Austin with the hook up Let's check back in with team Ken – Yeah, we need to get it all the way, as close to the bottom as possible, yeah – Even Jon's going like, "What's going on?" – Yeah! – All right, let's keep moving

– All right, so we're on our way to Best Buy and we looked online and found an Insignia brand Best Buy in-house brand LED strip All right man, here we go – [Austin] What'd he say? – He told me right, one isle, two isle, LED lights, is what he said – [Austin] Cable pass through No, that is not it

– That is gonna not be it – I think it is this one right, the four foot? – That is four feet – That's not two in stock, that's one in stock – Seriously – I don't get it; they said that there are two online

I don't know what we're going to do, I literally don't know what we're going to do [Josh] Time's a ticking but it looks like team Ken is making solid progress And yes, that is Ken using packaging stickers as tape – Oh God (laughing) – [Josh] Hey man, you gotta do what you gotta do

– Oh man this is a – All right it's cool, it's cool – Yeah, all right – Don't fret, don't fret; yeah There we go, there we go

– Oh shoot, there we go – There we go, there we go, there we go, there we go – See, you gotta power these somehow These are 80 bucks, that's a $10 penalty if we don't get it, right? – [Austin] Nah, it's not worth the risk I kinda feel like, let's just do a Hue Go, and let's just YOLO it

– This? – [Austin] I think so – Over this strip? They're the same price And we just snip it – [Austin] The strip, let's go – Okay, let's do it

– Holy (beep), I should've done this first We should have waited on the water (laughs) – All right little Kratos, all right, let's go, let's go – Kratos – Swim, swim buddy, swim

– Defeat the Gods – Swim, swim, little buddy – Yeah! (clapping) – [Ken] He's like, "Oh my God, it's a PS4" – Yep, yep, that's exactly what he's saying (laughing) – All right, so we're back to the office, it's literally three minutes until we're ready to present, and our LED light strip is not looking great

– Well Austin, you're the one who wanted to buy it – (laughs) How dare you? – Just set this on top, right – Oh my God – There dude – This is the worst thing we've ever done

– I don't know, man – Oh wait (laughing) That looks It went in like this, you know? – Sure (laughing) Sure

– Austin, I don't know what to do, okay? – We made a mistake – You're tearing us apart – We made a mistake (sighs) – We didn't think this through But we've already spent $80 on this one little tiny strip

– No we didn't, we found this in the corner Austin Here you want $80? – Let's do it, let's do it – Have a hundred Austin, I don't care! (echos) – [Ken] There's definitely a PS2 on top of the PS4 – [Jud] No, that's a PS1 – [Ken] There's a PS1 – Oh, no, no, no

That's just– – [Ken] There's a PS1 on top of the PS4, so we have a PS5 (laughing) – So thank you all for joining us, specifically losing team Thank you very much for gracing us with your presence So when it came time to really build the PS4, we realized that that was actually not enough 'Cause who wants a PS4? – It's old

– It's old – It sucks – 2013, are you kidding me? What we wanted to do here, is we wanted to elevate the game And of course, one of our favorite videos to make is something that's sort of upcoming and future So I present to you the PlayStation 5

(clattering) (everyone laughing) – One moment, please – Please – One moment, please – Oh, there's no resetting that, that's going in the video (clattering) – May we present to you the PlayStation 5! Oh, come on

– I told you, I told you – This is not even a competition – Yeah, this my friends – Oh, just wrap it up, Austin – Oh, no, no, no, no, we're just getting started

So you might notice, of course, we have our PlayStation 1 Four plus one, as we all know, equals five, however We wanna talk a little bit – That's exactly what I said – Look at this disk loading tray here – Yeah

– Yeah, you got one of those? – Oh, part two – The most important– – It's a CRT TV – So the most important part– – You can see the– – It's more than just a mere CRT TV, can't you know anything from our amateurs? – Look, if that's not a Trinitron, I'm gonna be very disappointed – Look, this is– – Where are you gonna put it? – It's a Sony, maybe – Just put it on the table, just put it on the table

– Man, presentation skill's not on point, man, nah – Thankfully presentation is not one of the categories – It should be – It should; maybe for the next one – It absolutely should be

– Definitely should – If you'd like to, you know, take the controller, give it a play – You can try Spiderman as it was meant to be – It's so cinematic – I'm not even gonna look, you just let me know what I gotta do

– Well you're just doing great – Yep, you're actually doing pretty well without looking at the TV – [Austin] You have to hold X – Can you read that text; wait, what was– – It's very sharp – What's it saying? – Don't worry about it, it's fine

– I can't see, I don't know what's going on – [Josh] Okay, we're all done with the first presentation, let's turn the lights low and see what Ken and Jud have prepared (laughing) – Presenting the PS4 aquarium We can't leave PC to their crazy RGB goodness, right? So, what better way to do it than an RGB water case? – [Jud] So we've got a projector here And not only that, we've got some audio so that we can

(gentle music) – With a subwoofer – Oh, high fidelity – Are those actual fish living in there still? – Yes

– This is a fish This is a betta fish – [Austin] Have you guys bought fish? – His name is Kratos – [Austin] Wait, you can't put a betta fish in that – What happens if you just like, tip it a little bit? – (gasps) Quinn

– You rats, you stole our light, dude – Oh, they were gonna go to the store! (laughing) – We went, no, no, no – Let's go, we said we got the last one – You did get the last one, we looked everywhere! – We were like, on the app like, "Where is it?" – I have an important question If you guys weren't running behind by an hour this morning, would you have gotten to the store first? – Yes

– So you forgetting your envelope this morning made you not get the light? – Listen, it's not our fault – Yeah, no – This couldn't have gone any better – There was blaster fire recorded in– – Oh; oh, that sound – That audio

– Oh man, it's so full – You hear that light saber? (light saber swishing) – [Jud] Austin I know you feel that, that's a subwoofer down there buddy – I will, yeah – [Matt] That poor fish – I mean, yeah, we don't need to do any more than that

We've got it, we've got it – You know, I gotta throw out there, that sounds awesome and I love me some Star Wars, but the high-pitched whine of a CRT is a very beautiful sound – We thought carefully about the judging panel and what would appeal to them – You got any fish fans in here? – Yeah, anyone want some fish sticks? (laughing) – Did you just threaten to kill Ken's child and feed it to us? (water bubbling) – All right, so we are all done with the presentations; on to the judging We're gonna start real quick off with creativity

Jimmy, who do you think won that category? – This one's actually tough, but I'm gonna give this one to Ken (clapping) Yeah, 'cause I like the fish – Got it – This is gonna be tough too On the one hand we have putting a PlayStation in an aquarium

That's it And on the other hand we have basic arithmatic with four plus one, so – That's important – So you guys can see it's so close I can't say that without a smile

(cheering) – Aw, you gotta be kidding – I disagree, this was a no-brainer, this was – Thank you – There we go – A man with sense

– Yeah, we had a – You could've softened the blow a little (laughing) – You guys get one point, whatever We totally have craftsmanship on this one, right? – Maybe, let's go ahead and see what Jimmy has to say Do you think they won the craftsmanship? – Honestly, I do

Mainly because you perfectly matched the tone of the original PS1 So, I'm gonna give you guys that point (clapping) – Oh, okay – Yeah, and I'm sorry, guys – All right

– Yeah, that's good – All right Matt, it comes down to you for a tiebreaker again – I am gonna dock Ken, and their thing was floating away You can only have half-full – I mean it's fair

– I do appreciate that you actually crafted something – (gasps) Yes! (high-fives) We in there! – [Jimmy] It's all tied up – Yes – If you guys remember back at home, if you used a lighting source of some sort, that was instantly $200 if you did it better than the other team; now I don't know about you guys, I didn't see a light source on team Austin So in my opinion, I think it's gotta be team Ken

But let me know what you guys say We've gotta do the voting – I can't think of any way to give them credit for using a light, like (laughing) – You had a little light – We concede

– There's a red LED on the TV – We concede, we concede Team Ken sabotaged us – All right, well then, here we go fellas $200 for team Ken, for your final total

– So, I will just let you guys all in on a little spoiler Our PS4 was actually designed by a true craftsman – Yeah? – No one in this room understands what I'm talking about but you guys watching at home know exactly what we did, so – Was it Armando? Did he literally spray paint it in his store? – It was Armando because I saw it on his Instagram while you guys were– – Hold up, hold up – So there was a lot of information that came out after the judging

– Yes – But even before then, we did have a unanimous shenanigans vote, so – What? Whoa – Yes, we are docking points for Austin, I believe, on that front – That's not part of the rules! – We called shenanigans

– That's shenanigans – [Austin] Are you saying I should have kept my mouth shut until after the video was over? – Yes – Yes – That's exactly what we're saying – Well, that's unfortunate

– Well, that sounds good enough to me to declare – Wait – The true winners of this event (clapping) – Are you serious? – Here it is for Ken, once again – I thought we had it, I thought we had it! – [Ken] Got it, man – Hey, we did it; I expected no less

– Yeah man, this is the dream team right here, we did it (gentle music)
