GR - "Sony is introducing all new interconnectivy, could aesthetic be included?"
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.
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
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.
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.
First world problems?
Hahah, right? :D
Just put the PS4 on top lol.
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.
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
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.
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
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)
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.
I hope not.....
It almost looks like a F-117 Nighthawk
That's what I immediately thought, won't show up on radar!
I LOVE a brushed metal look on anything. This is the direction Sony are going with their products. The Xperia Z looks phenomenal
I agree. Please no more shiny fingerprint magnet consoles.
How much is the blue ray?! Looks sexy!!
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.
It does indeed look glossy in those photos. Very nice style either way
Very clean and very modern. Pretty sexy indeed.
yeah but you cant put it vertical, so not going to happen :)
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.
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 ^^
That looks good.
That's quite nice, but what we all want to know is, "what font will Sony be using this time?"
The Amazing Spider man font ...I joke...I joke
I liked the amazing spiderman font, it was amazing!
It kind of looks like someone's bicep from a PSOne game :p
haha, it kind of does...vsauce
Did the author of the post take a serious inspiration from this neogaf thread yesterday? http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Thank you! I was about to post the same thing. I was expecting this to link to that post in some way.
Yea, its a very peculiar coincidence. I think its another case of GAF --> Internet --> GAF
If the ps4 looks anything like that, i'll be happy
looks absolutely incredibly amazingly gorgeous
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.
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.
O'rly??? orginal playstation, n64, xbox, nintendo nes, atari, sega genesis, sega dreamcast...... says HI!!!
Yes, please! @[email protected] pretty
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
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.
i love these 4 "rays" on the surface of this player. Can't this be a hint to PS4 design?
LOL! This article is based on a thread on neogaff and he doesn't even give credit.
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.
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)
modern, yet simple.. Looks good but not for PS4.. PS4 needs more swagger
Sexy! I'd want the PS4 to look kinda like that....
Star wars Blu-ray
yeah its almost gonna be similar to that..quote me on that lolz
That's a nice looking BluRay player. If the PS4 looks like this it will get my thumbs up.
Looks like a coffin. :)
i want the original ps3 look to it with the playstation logo lighting up everytime you turn the system on. and please sony bring this back " LIVE IN YOUR WORLD PLAY IN OURS " PLAY BEYOND WAS AWESOME BUT THE PRICE WASN'T .. EVEN THO I GOT ONE.
If the 'orbis' looks anything like this, I would showcase it like a BOSS!
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...
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.
plausible, but sony's regular blu-ray players looking nothing like any of the PS3 models, so...
Looks like a SEGA Master System
I hope not, I hate components you can't stack.
That's looks . . . Classic , remind me of the logo of DJ MAX Techinka 3 :] http://www.youtube.com/watc... But let's wait and see how it looks on the Announcement day .
Hopefully the ps4 will look like a black psx. Here's the psx in white. http://av.watch.impress.co....
I have a really old blu-ray player that takes nearly a decade to load. Does these new blu-ray players improve on that?
that's Fu..... ugly!
As long as it can stand up vertically then I'm ok with it, I do hope the styling looks sexy though and that it runs cool and quiet.
