A sentient console sounds terrifying. Electronics Hub, following the trend of computers redesigning and improving themselves thanks to artificial intelligence, asked Elijah Robertson to illustrate what different consoles would look like if they redesigned themselves. Robertson rendered consoles from Nintendo, Sony, and Xbox within the limits of their color palette, processing power, and hardware.
Going through the different illustrations, one can believe that these redesigns were generated by the consoles themselves. The amount of detail Robertson included, such as graphical capabilities makes the concept more believable. I’m not too keen on the sentient game console idea though, because it would probably just learn how to shut down when it's open for too long or longer than recommended. That would ruin hours of gameplay!
