This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Well, judging from the apparent lack of custom game consoles for the TS3 here on this site, I decided to go for the big kill and make one. I actually did this several months ago, although I somewhat canned it for a few months before submitting it here.

The PlayStation 3 is the third home video game console produced by Sony Computer Entertainment and the successor to the PlayStation 2 as part of the PlayStation series. Major features of the console include its own PlayStation Network service, Blu-Ray discs as its primary storage medium for games and other media, and the recently-released PlayStation Move peripheral.

I originally intended it not to be recolourable, but per MTS guidelines I had to make it as such. Only one channel, namely the console shell itself, can be recoloured, well, being that I haven't seen any striped or multicoloured PS3s yet.

Works with the latest TS3 builds; just copy the package files to your game's Mods\Packages directory. I'm yet to do the controllers, though.

UPDATE: Added patched package file for Pets and/or v1.26; anyone experiencing problems with the mod on Pets or the latest Sims 3 builds should update to the patched version.
UPDATE 2: Added Gamepad package. Note that the object is a shared asset like the cellphone, so it'll always appear regardless of what console are your Sims playing with.

Polygon Counts:
Vertices: 244
Faces: 262

My biggest thanks to the guys here at MTS for helping me along the way, to my pals at GTAForums, and to some of my mates from 667 Dark Avenue and American Girl Playthings.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

There is a recolorable Wii available at TheSimSupply, Here.

A wonderful creation! This will go well next to the Wii! I'm also on the bandwagon for older systems too
