The Most Realistic PlayStation 4 Concept Sony Should Notice

With all the news of a new PlayStation console being in development and Sony pegged to announce it between now and E3 this year, the hype is pretty high.

In such testing times, a lot of concepts and designs by freelance designers are doing the rounds but this particular PlayStation 4 concept stands out for u (Next-Gen, Sony)

I like the video, the guy seems very talented. But, I would expect Sony make a more bulky design, this looks too light to pack a punch imho.
Metamorph93  +   1104d ago
Yes, I agree. Sony likes shorter controllers and bulky looking consoles.
blackbeld  +   1104d ago
The video looks amazing. This guy got talent.
juandren  +   1104d ago
I like the controller a lot. The console itself - not so much :/
Razmossis  +   1104d ago
At first I thought he was making a BT HomeHub
NegativeCreepWA  +   1104d ago
I'd just like the joy sticks to be spaced further apart, so my thumbs don't hit each other and better triggers of course.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   1104d ago
Could they make the analog sticks a bit closer..../sarcasm
jujubee88  +   1104d ago
Well, it's not portable. But, yeah the console looks a bit (just a bit) fashion over function.

For example, where are the discs suppose to go?
steve30x  +   1104d ago
The slot is there for the disc but it doesnt go far enough back to fit a disc
jujubee88  +   1104d ago
Haha.

Yeah, the design is pretty nice but when basic stuff like a disk slot is not functioning there needs to be an overhaul.
Tiqila  +   1104d ago
maybe its meant to use a new media like.. i dont know.. sticks???
Syntax-Error  +   1104d ago
I said the same thing. The disc slot doesn't match the depth of the console. Second, it's too tall. Consoles should be vertical so the can fit on component shelves. Not a good design at all.

Only if they visit N4G
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   1104d ago
Everyday until the reveal will be these ridiculous renders that won't be anything like the final product. Yea I'm sure Sony is just gonna jump outta their seats for Joe Blow's PS4 model render.
trancefreak  +   1104d ago
Looked great but the best part of every new console is sniff testing the plastic. That is key for every new console launched. Just sit there in take in that new console smell mhh mhh. XD
user3915800  +   1103d ago
Lol... Fail,look at the blue ray tray it goes in and out, problem is the console is too small and blue ray is longer than console lol... I like the remote a mixture of ps3-xbx remote nice, but console failed hard.
PopRocks359  +   1103d ago
I was gonna say... Wouldn't it be better to just let Sony do their thing? Doing a concept design and making the full fledged system are two different feats entirely.
iamnsuperman  +   1104d ago
I would say remove the stand and make it more vertical (no bend) because the problem with this design is it has to sit one way which would be problematical for tv stand/units. Also making a stand an optional extra is extra possible money for low production cost.

The controller looks too wide for its height but that could be just the picture

This look by far the nicest one ive seen so far..controller look nice
Blackdeath_663  +   1104d ago
really??! i think it looks f***ing ugly both controller and console. the console can only stand one way which is silly and the controller doesn't look comfortable at all.

StockpileTom  +   1103d ago
Agreed... I wouldn't want that bulky thing in my hands.
Hellsvacancy  +   1103d ago
Not that im as skilled on a computer as the guy in the video, but I could come up with a better looking design in my opinion

Besides, isnt Sony implementing PS-Move as standard? I can see no big glowing balls on that controller
tubers  +   1104d ago
Convex face button base... no thanks.
Revolver_X_  +   1104d ago
Horrible controller
shodaime  +   1104d ago
Got a better one?
Timesplitter14  +   1104d ago

ThyMagicSword  +   1104d ago
Looks like some kind of balance board and the controller does not look very nice for the hands ...
ziggurcat  +   1104d ago
ugly
steve30x  +   1104d ago
Its too shallow. It needs more depth to allow for airflow , there is one vent to allow air out or in so it needs an air intake vent too and big enough to allow good airflow and the disc tray is too shallow to fit a disc in there.
steve30x  +   1103d ago
Its totally obvious that the person who disagreed doesnt have a clue how computer hardware works.
xtreampro  +   1104d ago
Show this to a product designer and he'll laugh in your face. It looks like a high school graphics project.

Experienced product designers and product engineers just don't design like this, they would have done things like this in their early years (very early).

You want a functional product that looks conventional and stylish and that has the companies design philosophy, not some Tron looking backpack.

Please, not another concept from a fan. Leave product design to Sony.
ThyMagicSword  +   1104d ago
Well, at least he tried.
Dogswithguns  +   1104d ago
Not approved by me(nobody).. but he put into lots of hardwork, I respect for that.
jacksheen0000  +   1104d ago
Still look like the George foreman grill but much slender.
Qrphe  +   1104d ago
Why the glass? Why that shape for the controller AND console?

It's like some inexperienced 16-year-old focused on futurism and flashiness (yet learned Blender very well on his own) designed this.

I was sarcastically referencing 3D modeling software in general, sorry for confusion.

@shodaime with you on this one..
Shuyin  +   1104d ago
There's nothing for them to notice. They're probz too far into development to change major things.
Npugz7  +   1104d ago
I hate where the thumbsticks are! They should be layed out how they are on the 360.its a controller for people with small hands. I'm talking about the dual shock
brianunfried  +   1104d ago
Impractical design, won't fit in most entertainment/shelving systems. Try again.
smashman98  +   1104d ago
Your kind of a jerk
Skate-AK  +   1104d ago
You're* Sorry man I had to.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   1104d ago
Where's the track pad?
deadlydragon121  +   1104d ago
Good skills but it would never look like that to be honest!
Urusernamesucks  +   1104d ago
It looks like a hand killer
smashman98  +   1104d ago
He definitely has talent but we can all be pretty much 100 percen.t hat Sony has already finalized how the ps3 will look
Black-Rock-Shooter  +   1104d ago
The title says Playstation 4 not ps3 =.=
Skate-AK  +   1104d ago
He meant 4 just pressed the wrong number.
smashman98  +   1104d ago
Yea sorry doin this from my phone lol
Unztayble  +   1104d ago
I like the one from yesterday better.
edgeofsins  +   1104d ago
People really don't understand realistic concepts -.- Sony would likely keep the trend of making it able to stand on it's side or lay down flat. This betrays that and makes a huge vertical console and judging by the controller size, if they are supposed to be about the same size as current ps3 controllers, it is really big. It isn't convenient at all. The controllers are decent though. I don't think they should have such cornered handles though. Seems uncomfortable. Might be harder to reach buttons on the convex angle of the pads.
level 360  +   1104d ago
I just don't see Sony building that sort of arty rubbish.. even the control pads isn't aesthetically designed.

It's more fad than function.
-Gespenst-  +   1104d ago
Looks a bit daft... And why do people never think to design more ergonomic controllers?
X-Alchemist  +   1104d ago
I love how people are criticizing this guys talent as if they could do better.
It's just some dudes imagination gone wild, no need to take it so seriously as if it were actually real. Wow some people on here...

MidnytRain  +   1104d ago
Even though the attitude might be misdirected, I think the criticism mainly stems from the fact that the article hypes the design as "the most realistic."

The first thing they teach you in any art/design school is how to deal with criticism. It may sound mean or harsh, but the person who made this concept should read these comments and learn from them. If hes serious about this field of work, it could help him out in the long run. I'm also a visual artist and I depend on feedback and criticisms to better my work.

sackboyhappy  +   1104d ago
this looks slimmer than the latest ps3 and the controller has uncomfortable square grips, not realistic at all

Lou Ferrigno  +   1104d ago
The console itself looks Amazing and is by far the best concept thus far.. But the controller is kinda ugly and not that attractive at all besides the Bright blue "PS" sign and "home" Signs.. Kinda reminds me of a cross between the old classic PS controllers (before the joysticks) and the Dualshock 3.. Love The video though,dude is talented :)
