PlayStation offering World Cup controller Makeover

England will win the World Cup. We know because of science - reproducing the same results in a controlled environment. Whenever we pick England on the Fifa World Cup 2014 game, we never fail to win.

An important caveat to this experiment is that, yes, we were playing on Easy. But it still gives us hope.

PlayStation are looking to further gamers' World Cup frenzy by offering free custom makeovers of their DualShock 3 and 4 controllers.

As the official console of the tournament (well, the teams need something to do between matches and we hear sudoku isn't hugely popular), the console giant are hosting Customisation Stations at Westfield Stratford, the Bullring Shopping Centre in Birmingham and Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester from 24 May – 8 June.

Check out the paint-splattered and number-adorned mock-ups below and find out more about the scheme here. We're going to get a gold cup-themed paint scheme, suitable for lifting aloft when we win the whole tournament.
