If Sony will release a new model of its game console playstation 3, this concept arts could possibly be the final look of the upcoming hardware. Even imaginable is a Playstation 4-Model.
It looks similar to the PS2 Slim.
The flip top drive on the same side as the PS2 slim but the curved low profile shape of a 3do FZ-10. Even though the concept drawing is just that...a drawing. I could see sony revising the hardware to make the unit even smaller. Changing from using a slot load to a flip top could reduce power consumption and cost quite a bit.
I think it's a PS3 "Superslim". It makes no sense that the PS4 would look nearly identical to the PS3, I mean the design changed quite a bit from PS2 to PS3. I certainly hope they make an awesome design for the PS4. Hmm how about something like the Nexsus Q? That is a sexy beast...
Oh my Jesus. I might purchased this one day.
no thanks, i like slot loading
i like loading slots ;)
I don't. From a technical perspective: a lot more can go wrong with the slot-loading design: more pieces to lose and such: fixed enough PS3s to know that. Trays and flip-top designs are much easier to deal with.
i understand...i run my ps3 games from an external hd...im sure mine wont wear out anytime soon as i only use it every once in a while.
took word right out of my mouth KAMIKAZE look to similar top tray compartment slim ps2 so concepts are confirmed fan-made.
I think that was made using Google SketchUp. It's fan made because I'm pretty sure sony isn't poor to the point where they have to use free programs to design their consoles.
That does look poor, but using free programs is something companies do from time to time. There is a little thing called "open source" software, companies seem to use all the time. XD
If I draw a new Playstation in PAINT, would it be spread all over N4G also?
its looks like the PS3 slim but with a flip top disk drive.
Old school i like it.
these concepts are confirmed fan-made
Pretty sure that Sony wouldn't use Google SketchUp to make new console designs.
I was about to say the same thing...the person whodid make this could have done a better job. I am particularly crap on google sketchup but come on. If someone is going to make fake concept art then at least do a good job. Some creations i have seen on google sketchup are incredible
ill take a smaller PS3.. doubtful its ps4
i'll take it as the ps3 ultra slim, would go nice in my living room. I can take my fat back into the bedroom move the slim into the spare room and get the ultra slim for the living room. 1. Bedroom: Gaming 2. Spare room: Guest Entertainment 3. Living room: Media hub all different ps3's doing different things what a happy Lyon I shall be.
Forgot about the most important: 4. Bathroom: Second home
Thats what the vita's for
That thing is faker than a 7 1/2 dollar bill made of gold.
Pretty sure it's the new slim, that's would be why the "Eject Disc" option was renamed "Remove Disc".
I doubt they'll make a disk tray design like that again considering the problems experienced with the PS1.
Wow. One screenshot... of a concept drawing... how exciting. And also, this looks a lot like the ps2.
my 60gig ps3 has been dead for 2 years hopefully it happens asap because im going to be very unhappy if I go buy one and a month or 2 later ps3 slimmer comes out.
What have you been using these 2 years?
xbox but I want to play sony smash bros and have like 12 ps3 games that I cant play
i cant say i like the flip top lid more then what we have on the current console
lol at people not getting it. These 'drawings' are designs that someone drew up using the details that were outlined in the patent for the new CECH-4000 model PS3. you know, that document that had all of the dimensions etc of the new "super slim" PS3? all theyve done is take that document and render the specifications in a 3D-ish model so you can see what the CECH-4000 model will look like.
This is sad. This is the mockup someone did in a thread on NeoGAF and they take it as news? "Games journalism" indeed.
As sad as it is though, I'm sure Sony will do this to their PS3 Slim model.
It looks like the Turbo Graphx 16 - Turboduo http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
it will make me work harder to remove my game disk, i dnt want that.
I honestly think Sony wouldn't go back with the flip-top mechanism for the PS4, it's just not very Japanese tech-wise. Quite certain the next PS4 will be progressive in it's design and features.
ps3 slim methinks
Whoever made this article is an idiot. A user on Neogaf made this rendering of what he thinks the PS3 slim will look in the PS3 4000 model thread.
EDIT: Ah ok it was made using drawings/ dimensions from rumors. be nice to see it rendered or something to make it a little more real. Any ideas on the materials that are gonna be used?
I looked pretty good....If PS4 never YLOD anymore and fine ram
