Sounds like a plan. Do you know of any types of shops that would take my PS3 and paint it? I don't know ANYTHING about painting.... oh, wait, I painted my room once XD

Something similar to that, yes. Might be a little bit more eggshell white.

mnpctech has some sweet vinyls (carbon fiber, metal flake, diamond plate) that could be pretty bad ass if used properly on a console

Do it only once you have practiced on other plastic. Here is a quick guide to doing it.
1 - Mask off any areas you don't want to paint.
2 - Wipe down with rubbing alcohol.
3 - Prime in light coats, allowing each coat to dry or 2-3 minutes. Do about 4 coats. Once it is dry, wetsand it lightly with 400 grit. Be very careful not to break through the primer. Then clean it off with more rubbing alcohol once you are done sanding.
4 - Paint in light coats, letting each coat dry for 2-3 minutes, do 2 coats. Once dry, wetsand lightly with 600 grit then clean off.
5 - Paint 2 more light coats and let it dry and then clean it off with rubbing alcohol.
6 - Clearcoat once, then after it is dry, wetsand it lightly with 1000grit and then clean it off.
7 - Clearcoat again and once it is dry, wetsand with 1500grit and clean it off
8 - Clearcoat again and ocne it is dry, wetsand with 2000grit and clean it off
9 - Clearcoat lightly and let it dry, then clean it off with rubbing alcohol.
10 - Then about 1 month later, apply some 3M rubbing compound (make sure it is the hand applying one, unless you got a machine buffer)

That should get you the most reflective surface possible with rattle can painting, but it takes LOTS of patience and some painting skills, so I suggest you practice getting the spraying motions down on some scrap plastic first, then practice sanding between the coats.
