This Is What One Guy Thinks the PS4 Will Look Like

Kotaku - Let's all remember: we haven't seen the PlayStation 4 yet. Along with games that were purportedly running on the system specs, Sony's event last month only showed viewers the controller. (PS4)

Ugh. Makes me want to take back what I once said about just needing a box. Hope Sony can actually do better.
Hufandpuf  +   396d ago
See the design does matter in some way.
MikeMyers  +   396d ago
Not to me. This looks sort of like it's made by Linn (high end audio equipment).

I would actually prefer something like this as it's easy to store in an entertainment center and doesn't clash with everything else.

As long as it's quiet and doesn't run too hot I don't really care too much what it looks like. Unless it's something like the Gamecube.

@MikeMyers:
Well, I like this one better. Even if its better suited for a later slim model.

Godmars290, not bad but not as good as this one I pre-ordered. It comes with a year supply of Pop Tarts.

I can already see this video being passed around on facebook and all the noobs thinking this is the PS4...smh. I'm sure whatever Sony makes will look sexier than this.
Gaming101  +   396d ago
This looks like an old, ugly VCR. Definitely not happening after how nice the PS3 looked on launch.
zeee  +   396d ago
I think the new PS4 will look like one of these other Sony products (bluray players). I am just guessing but here goes nothing...

It's Kotaku. They found the worst possible concept and put an article up about it.
zeee  +   396d ago
So true! I agree 100%. Kotaku are the worst!
MYSTERIO360  +   396d ago
Well the original PS2 wasn't really a looker when it first launched back in 2000 but look now its the highest sold console in history. I don't think looks are everything when it comes to hardware design but i'm sure Sony can do a better job then that.

wheres the playstation logo on the front?!?
Knight_Crawler  +   395d ago
I really hope we get the option to place the PS4 in a vertical position...did like the fact that Sony designed the PS3 slim that you can only have it horizontal.

Also I hope the new PS4 CONTROLLER has a sync button that you can use to connect it to the PS4.

Looks like an early DVD player, god I hope it looks nothing like that concept, it's truly horrible.
SantistaUSA  +   396d ago
all he did was to copy Sony Blu-ray design. It looks horrible.
strickers  +   396d ago
have you seen the new BR players ? They don't look that plain
It's all in the details, and that has no detail
SantistaUSA  +   396d ago
@strickers, yes I've seen it and it does look better that this video, but I'm still not a big fan of that design.
Merrill  +   396d ago
Who cares what it looks like, only what it can do :)
Hufandpuf  +   396d ago
Come to think of it. It looks like a Wii.
CRAIG667  +   396d ago
Looks fine to me...
CRAIG667  +   396d ago
Better than George Foreman grill !!1
Gamer-40  +   396d ago
Ugly concept.
Jek_Porkins  +   396d ago
Consoles need personality, said it before and I'll say it again. This would be a pretty soulless design in my opinion.
maniacmayhem  +   396d ago
I love it. I always prefer the minimalist approach to console designs. The we can let other artists or special editions hook it up for the people.
Crazay  +   396d ago
There are some negative things to say about that idea but, you have to admire a) the simplicity and b) the ease at which something like that would integrate into an existing home theater setting. The Ps3 is awful for it's actual design. you can't stack anything on top of it. There's only so much shelf space one can have.

You probably shouldn't be stacking anything on top of your PlayStation.
Crazay  +   396d ago
I'm not. that's the problem. I cant even put my Wii U on top of that behemoth.
cell989  +   395d ago
you shouldnt even if you could, unless you want to have your PS3 overheat, not to mention ruining the blurray drive mechanism
steve30x  +   396d ago
That one small cooling fan wont cool the 8 core CPU properly. It would lead to overheating. They need to have crossflow (Cool air in and warm air vented out) cooling in the console to keep the system ccol. It would fit into my home theatre setup though.

Impossible ... there is no playstation logo near the disc drive.

Perhaps one is in and the other is out to bring us the long fabled PVR functionality that Sony talked about once upon a time?
brianunfried  +   396d ago
Dual displays
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   396d ago
This is the most boring concept I've seen... some VCR's look better.
brianunfried  +   396d ago
I hope for something very similar, I would love to be able to stack it with my other components.
mrmancs  +   396d ago
vcr from the early ninties?! Gtfo of here.
GribbleGrunger  +   396d ago
Taking Sony's phone design and PSeye2 design into consideration, I've been thinking along these lines myself.
poopsack  +   396d ago
About 5 minutes in Maya.
e3kehoe  +   396d ago
I like it!

But I like simplicity In Design..

Kind of looks like something a computer would design if you could ask it to make a PS4 design
Jamaicangmr  +   396d ago

MultiConsoleGamer  +   396d ago

MoDyDo  +   396d ago
A DVD player, wow awesome :|
Swiggins  +   396d ago
"This Just In, Sony announces that the PS4 is actually any DVD player from the middle of the 2000's, it's just nobody thought to actually put a game into one of them."

This mock up is terrible, the real one will be much better.
KwietStorm  +   396d ago
Lol
2pacalypsenow  +   396d ago
looks like a wii
llMurcielagoll  +   396d ago
God I hope not, I am sure Sony will be landing PS4 with a crisp design.

To be honest, they'd better! After with holding the console from the Feb annoucement.
zoks310  +   396d ago
lol, this guy drew a box. so original, no twist just a straight box.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   396d ago
I dont like that design its to bland. It will be a small black gloss unit.
Legendary-Status  +   396d ago
Lol the ps2 all over again accept its a lil longer
