Do You Care What The PS4 Looks Like?

It's true that nobody has actually seen the PlayStation 4 yet. But with all this whining, I'm surprised so many people care about the machine's look. (PS4)

The PS4 console was not shown because it DOES NOT EXIST. In any other industry, that would be considered FRAUD. However, in the video games industry (especially in Sony's case - Killzone 2 E3 2005 anyone?), that's par for the course.

The spin and damage control by Sony fanboys in response to this debacle has been hilarious ("Who CARES what it looks like?" - Seriously?). You would think this practice of smoke and mirrors was normal instead of the PS4 "reveal" *snicker* being the FIRST TIME EVER that a console has been announced but not actually shown.

I don't know. I'm laughing pretty hard about how serious you're taking this, and what about the Killzone trailer? The game ended up looking better in the end so I'm not really sure what point you're trying to make here.

Take of the Sony blinds. Sony has been known to delude their audience with footage that never makes it to real game play.

The original footage from KZ3 looked way better to what the end product was. Even with GT5 the end game was no where near as good as they showed in the early footage.

Until Sony dont show anything concrete with the PS4 its still up in the air. For all we know it uses a tablet CPU and Mid range GPU.

Meanwhile all what the fans seem to talk about is not the CPU or GPU naa lol all they talk about is the RAM haha. Just shows how much of a success Sony has been in deluding the public making them talk about RAM lol.

Anyone that owns or has played Killzone 2 and 3 know that those games have some damn impressive graphics. I just can't see how anyone can look at that E3 trailer of Killzone and think it looks better then the final product, unless they just don't want to see it. I wasn't aware that they made Sony blinds, but maybe you should take off whatever blinds you're wearing. Sick of people crying about Sony fanboys on this site. Just because I prefer to game on Playstation, doesn't make me a Sony fanboy.

And that RAM, and CPU, and GPU mess, I couldn't care less about, so save it for someone who does please? I'm more interested in the games that are coming then specs. Never heard so much whining over something that shouldn't even be an issue. I wish Sony would show the PS4 before E3 so people like you can shut up about it.

The only consequence the design of the console will have is how and where I'm going to place it on my tv bench. And that's all.

Umm ,it's called e3 around the corner and hell all we know they could show the system with a surprise feature .

@Dwight

Are you serious? It doesn't exist? Ever heard of E3? Sonys job was to get people talking about the PS4, release the specs, talk about some new features, wow the developers with 8gb GDDR5 ram, and show off a few games. They not only did this, they did this well.

Why would Sony fans need to spin anything or play damage control? The conference went well and E3 is just a few months away.

It's obviously the people who DON'T like Sony that are playing damage control by pretending to care so much about what a piece of plastic is going to look like. If after a two hour conference, all you can complain about is the lack of plastic, that just shows the haters are grasping for straws.

It's okay, go back to your room. Huddle into the fetal position and keep telling yourself that Sony won't hurt you till the tears stop flowing.

Thanks for the laugh Dwight.

Give me KZ2 2005 video followed by KZ2 and KZ3 with their graphics over ponchos and actors pretending to play followed by those eventual games.

from a scale of 1 to 10, i care a 4 what consoles look like . i actually care more about how much NOISE they will make.

Speaking of the Jimmy video, Jimmy showed us the back of the controller for the first time.
Anyone have any idea on what this could be?

http://oi50.tinypic.com/2hp...

Notice it's only on one side of the controller so it cannot be a screw.

Could be nothing, i just thought it suspicious since Sony never sent out any pics from this angle.

Oh and on topic, i wouldn't mind seeing it but specs were always more important than a case.

Wow, the Xbox Defence League are really in full force for this thread.

1. Not bothered about what it looks like but would be happy if it is a bit stylish.
2. Killzone footage show - The end product turned away miles better that the footage shown so why is there so much commotion?

I guess people like moaning about nothing.

I do care in one way, if it's well designed with ventilation and cooling in mind. That's it!
Hicken  +   549d ago
Not really. Helps if it looks good, but doesn't exactly matter if it doesn't look great.

That aside, it's not like Sony has a history of making ugly consoles, so why is this even an issue?
