i dont see why not...

Some other person bought this up but, I do not want hardware I can not stack stuff upon.
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.

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
adorie  +   600d 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.
jujubee88  +   600d ago
@adorie
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.

Just put the PS4 on top lol.
Leviathan  +   599d 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.

Don't stack, heat kills.
BrunoM  +   600d 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.
BrunoM  +   599d 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

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.

That's what I immediately thought, won't show up on radar!
WilliamH  +   600d ago
I LOVE a brushed metal look on anything. This is the direction Sony are going with their products. The Xperia Z looks phenomenal
GillHarrison  +   600d ago
I agree. Please no more shiny fingerprint magnet consoles.
onyoursistersback  +   600d ago
How much is the blue ray?! Looks sexy!!
Elwenil  +   600d 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.

yeah but you cant put it vertical, so not going to happen :)
vlonjati77  +   600d 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.
Ultr  +   599d 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 ^^
iamnsuperman  +   600d ago
That looks good.
kwyjibo  +   600d ago
That's quite nice, but what we all want to know is, "what font will Sony be using this time?"
Root  +   600d ago
The Amazing Spider man font

...I joke...I joke

antbolton89  +   600d ago
If the ps4 looks anything like that, i'll be happy
NastyLeftHook0  +   600d ago
looks absolutely incredibly amazingly gorgeous
Mr_cheese  +   600d ago
Physical design is so important and I do like the look of this player. It would be great if their is some constancy between all sony product designs.
Sorraxe  +   600d ago
BD/Dvd players like that design arent ment to be Vertical stand, thats why i dont see Ps4 takes that design.

A concole will always have the options to stand as Vertical or horizontal stand.
justlikeme  +   600d ago
O'rly??? orginal playstation, n64, xbox, nintendo nes, atari, sega genesis, sega dreamcast...... says HI!!!
Liquid_Ocelot  +   600d ago
Yes, please!

@.@ pretty
torchic  +   600d ago
what's more interesting is the software and features included. many of those features most probably will find their way into PS4

does anyone have any idea what OS it runs? could we see that kind of OS in the PS4?

I must admitt though it does look amazing though wooooow
abzdine  +   600d ago
looks pretty futuristic to me, i like this one!
No BD player was loooking like a PS3 so i dont think they are that much in short of design ideas.
coolmast3r  +   600d ago
i love these 4 "rays" on the surface of this player. Can't this be a hint to PS4 design?
xtreampro  +   600d ago
LOL! This article is based on a thread on neogaff and he doesn't even give credit.
bobshi  +   600d ago
This is stupid.

So, what, any new product Sony shows must be PS4 design?

Pathetic.

The PS4 must look like that new phone and tablet they just launched. Maybe it'll be called PlayStation Z too.
kingPoS  +   600d ago
I like the dark polygon look it's sporting. Very chic.

With the PS3 it's at the top of the heap... literally as in being unable to have something on top of it. Yeah those prominent curves ensure that it's always on top. (grin)

If the 'orbis' looks anything like this, I would showcase it like a BOSS!
Seraphemz  +   599d ago
I guess this site is following the whole "put PS4 in the article" for hits mentality.

Why would that bluray player have anything to do with the PS4?? Because Sony makes it?

None of their current bluray players look anything like the PS3, so why would they use the same design for the PS4...
arbitor365  +   599d ago
i hope the PS4 doesn't look like that.

i dont know why, but the prism shaped casing looks incredibly cheap and tacky. like something you would find at a yard sale.
