Does It Matter That We Haven’t Actually Seen The PS4 Yet?

Sony gave its fans a fair helping of details on their upcoming console, but they never actually showed off the console itself. And this is a problem for some people. The thing is, it really shouldn’t be.

to answer the simple question: "no.. no it doesn't."

Exactly, I don't know why this is even an issue. If Sony had revealed everything we'd end up with articles with the headlines "Does Sony have anything left for E3?" or "Should Sony have waited?".

They just can't win.

So True!

The system could spit out $20 bills and Haters would still hate because they were not $100 bills.

I'm reading mostly positive thoughts online and the ones that aren't are because of no hardware BC. So my suggestion is if BC is such a sticking point for them then play the PS3 until they are tired of it and then move to next gen. Because lets face it, these people were never going to upgrade anyways.

I'm sure they are still working on the final design, I hope that the PS4 is imaged a bit like a high end gaming rig instead with squared edges instead of rounded.

Nope but it does matter if its out this holiday in Europe! I don't want to preorder just yet if we are gonna get screwed over and get it in March again otherwise if thats so I'll import..

I'm actually glad they didn't, my friends on the other hand.. they didn't enjoy the show too much.
The way I see it, E3 is just a few months away and I'm super excited! It gives them a chance to blow the show out of the water!

yeah who cares. hopefully it does look sexy though!

mrbojingles1736d ago

I'd very much like to see how they fit 16 512MB GDDR5 RAM sticks into a respectable looking box.

Ripsta7th1736d ago

Yeah whats the deal with that? I heard GDDR5 ram goes only on sticks? So they gotta like combine 16 512mbs or why cant they just make the chip be like 8gb together?

mrbojingles1736d ago

I don't think anyone manufactures anything over 512MB sticks, so unless they got an exclusive 8GB stick it would require 16 sticks. That's going to take up a lot of space.

Even then, if they got an 8GB stick that will cost even more

Ripsta7th1736d ago

Oh alrite thanks man , i just wasnt sure how all of that workd out. So they are distributed in sticks of 512Mb, thats interesting

I don't know, Macs manage to do something similar.

Edit: Both

Imacs also require a bunch of other extra stuff including speakers, keyboard (macbooks), the screen itself and the cameras/mic.

mrbojingles1736d ago

MacBooks or iMacs? If iMacs then I'd say they have a lot more space than what people expect the PS4 to have.
