i dont see why not...

I have and will continue to spend a lot of $$$ (in the thousands range when I am finished) on a home theater A/V set-up, so I might want to stack something that is a few grams on top of the PS4.

Nothing big, but I might want a flat enough top of the hardware just in case I run out space on a shelf for my other equipment.

edit: Also, I know consoles are not always like that (see: OG PS3's chassis), it's just for my own selfish reasons of wanting more space so my PS4 fits right beside my A/V equipment.

BrunoM1250d ago

Don't like the idea .. Me personally got my own theater set up but won't stack anything ...

But if that's ur case why not stack the ps4 Orbis what ever the name on something like a surround resolver or what u got in any case would work for u

adorie1250d ago (Edited 1250d ago )

You can't really stack anything on the PS3 fat, the slim or the newest one, especially the newest one, lol. So why even complain? I mean, you COULD stack your stuff on the aforementioned PS3's but is it really practical? Lol.

I hope this is the look of the PS4, cause it looks like it wants to make it's way into my living room using stealth.:D

Heat problems when you stack.

jujubee881250d ago (Edited 1250d ago )

I am not complaining about anything! These are just preferences I would like (on a system which does not exist right now either way) so let's not get all bitchy and moany about something I wrote.

@BrunoM:

As mentioned, I will not be putting any thing big or heavy on top of the hardware.

Ideally, it would be a: cradle for my VITA, or a tube amp, or a wireless headphone transmitter, or a small DAC, or PS Eye 2.0 (or w/e), etc. Basically, A/V (and accessory stuff like PS eye) which I would want to also move around just in case I want to have PS4 in another room for an impromptu play session.

@ginsunuva:

I wont have much heat problems when stacking my VITA and cradle on top of my PS4. I def wont be putting anything over the consoles fans ventilation grid (if it happens to be on the top) and the VITA on its cradle def wont be dissipating enough heat to fry any circuits on the PS4's mobo (while stacked).

A Tube amp (even a small one like the Woo Audio Wa3)? Now that is more likely to cause a heating problem. But the more that I think of it, I probably wont sacking stuff like that on something like a PS4 (BAD IDEA). A small, portable DAC set-up? Maybe!

_____________________________ __________

In the end, a stack-able surface wont be the end all be all of me buying or not buying a PS4/Orbis/Omni/whatever. I am going to buy the thing regardless if it's a freaggin' egg shaped thing with dorsal fins sticking out of it (which sounds pretty awesome, now the I think about it :D).

Again, I am just spit balling through these possibilities. They do not actually mean anything right now. I was literally just trying to bring up a trouble shooting scenario which has not come up yet because it was brought up elsewhere.

solidt121249d ago

Just put the PS4 on top lol.

Leviathan1249d ago

You know, you really shouldn't stack electronics. First of all there are heat issues. Second, you have vibration issues. Third, you reduce all wireless connectivity (severely in some cases). Electronics aren't designed to be stacked. Stacking electronics is the best way to shorten the life span of the device. If you're truly spending thousands of dollars on equipment you should invest in a rack to keep everything properly cooled.

Reminds me of a Sega Mastersystem some how lol if it would to run out to be te ps4/Orbis

@ adorie lol agree and like how u ended lol want it in my livingroom too wonder if il see it coming lol

shaun mcwayne1249d ago

I didnt like the look at first glance, but when you said master system I thought, ohhh yeaaah.
I loved the master system for shinobi and its light gun games. Golden age of gaming for me.

BrunoM1249d ago

Shaun I agree 1000% that was my golden age for gaming the mortal combats the sonics the Alex kids lol miss a times how much fun I can have with 1 game

morkendo231250d ago (Edited 1250d ago )

why would SONY design ps4 like a black pyramid shape console??? Nah, this is one of sony new product. maybe a tint hint what ps4 could contain (features)

Mounce1249d ago

I think these designs are made to specifically gauge at market interest, public and critic interest of its design, seeing how people think of it and if it sparks intrigue or disgust. Similar say to PSP-GO, everyone thought it was shat and it was in many ways, an experiment.

This looks interesting, 'Edgy' future-like....but idunno.... It's not Convenient by any aesthetic-means like if you're putting it on a shelf or in a cabinet or leaving it on the table. It doesn't 'Match' most people and their rooms I'm sure. Go like, here's my sleek square TV, my smooth round couches, my rectangular, and here's my fucked-up looking black prism of a blu-ray player sticking out like a sore thumb or an attention whore who traveled back in time from the future!. :D

Just to be silly, is all.

It almost looks like a F-117 Nighthawk

VonBraunschweigg1250d ago

That's what I immediately thought, won't show up on radar!

WilliamH1250d ago

I LOVE a brushed metal look on anything. This is the direction Sony are going with their products. The Xperia Z looks phenomenal

GillHarrison1250d ago

I agree. Please no more shiny fingerprint magnet consoles.

onyoursistersback1250d ago

How much is the blue ray?! Looks sexy!!

Elwenil1250d ago (Edited 1250d ago )

I think the brushed finish look is just the lighting. There are other "live" photos of the BDP-S5100 that show it with a glossy finish.

WilliamH1250d ago

It does indeed look glossy in those photos. Very nice style either way

Munky1250d ago (Edited 1250d ago )

Very clean and very modern. Pretty sexy indeed.

Ultr1250d ago

yeah but you cant put it vertical, so not going to happen :)

vlonjati771250d ago

Ultr-if sony wants they can make it so it will be possible to put it vertical,jut needs to balance the weight.unless you mean something else so I could be wrong.

Ultr1249d ago

well its strangely shaped, I dunno if that is going to work you know.
Anyway looks great but, since PS2 you could always put the playstation standing up. should it change? I like it upwards ^^
