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.
Ugh. Makes me want to take back what I once said about just needing a box. Hope Sony can actually do better.
See the design does matter in some way.
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.
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. http://nerdbastards.com/201...
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.
This looks like an old, ugly VCR. Definitely not happening after how nice the PS3 looked on launch.
I think the new PS4 will look like one of these other Sony products (bluray players). I am just guessing but here goes nothing... http://ecx.images-amazon.co... http://ecx.images-amazon.co... http://ecx.images-amazon.co...
godmars. oooohh thats clean I love that design. if the ps4 looked like that id buy it just for vanity. i always liked the broken symmetry look.
If you want to save a minute of your life... Summary of video: http://s13.postimg.org/ocix...
It's Kotaku. They found the worst possible concept and put an article up about it.
So true! I agree 100%. Kotaku are the worst!
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?!?
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.
all he did was to copy Sony Blu-ray design. It looks horrible.
have you seen the new BR players ? They don't look that plain It's all in the details, and that has no detail
@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.
Who cares what it looks like, only what it can do :)
Come to think of it. It looks like a Wii.
Looks fine to me...
Better than George Foreman grill !!1
Consoles need personality, said it before and I'll say it again. This would be a pretty soulless design in my opinion.
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.
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.
I'm not. that's the problem. I cant even put my Wii U on top of that behemoth.
you shouldnt even if you could, unless you want to have your PS3 overheat, not to mention ruining the blurray drive mechanism
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.
i think it looks good...
whats the point of 2 hdmi ports?
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?
This is the most boring concept I've seen... some VCR's look better.
I hope for something very similar, I would love to be able to stack it with my other components.
vcr from the early ninties?! Gtfo of here.
Taking Sony's phone design and PSeye2 design into consideration, I've been thinking along these lines myself.
About 5 minutes in Maya.
I like it! But I like simplicity In Design..
but kids want flash
Kind of looks like something a computer would design if you could ask it to make a PS4 design
thats it thats as far as i watch. that render is terrible.
Oh hell no.
Needs USB on the back.
A DVD player, wow awesome :|
"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.
looks like a wii
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.
lol, this guy drew a box. so original, no twist just a straight box.
I dont like that design its to bland. It will be a small black gloss unit.
Lol the ps2 all over again accept its a lil longer
Looks OK to me
I'm fine with that. What it looks like is inconsequential to me as long as it fits in my entertainment center. Even if it doesn't fit I'll make it work somehow.
Direct tv Console Confirmed
That was just a freaking box! Not even Apple can get away with that.
Looks good to me. I don't know about everyone else but as an adult who also lives with his fiance. Having a minimal basic style that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in our media center is great. The more basic the better.
I dont really hate or love the PS4 mock up video... just wished they had some USB ports in the back of the console too
Honestly i kinda like the simplistic design. But yea..it doesn't look like a gaming console which is what most gamers are looking for.
what a stupid post. its a joke concept, a box with "ps4" on it. why would sony go back to a ps2 look? everything has smoother edges nowadays. expect something with more rounded edges, and the top of the console to be a design with a mix of gloss and matte plastic finish
He needs much more creativity, this thing looks like a dvd player .
Here's how one person thinks it will look, and here's how another think and another...and another -----> potatoe why are people actually responding with "man this looks worse than the ps2" it's what someone thinks....
At first glance I thought it was a Nintendo.. I don't agree with that video's line tag about that *thing being inspired by " Sony core design principles and thinking ". Nonsense. Their gaming console design structure has always been a bit more **adventurous in aesthetic looks than their other electronic products of similar usage ( mainly 3D/Blu Ray, DVD players ).
Seriously, who cares about the design, is everyone a fashion freak? the specs says it all and that i need to buy it, but to be honest the design does not look that bad, they have cut cost somewhere to make it affordable for us. i rather it bee the design than the actual specs
I don't mind it. But, I'm sure Sony will have a design that is vastly different. And, I much prefer the looks of the PS3's compared to this concept design.
God awful design by an amateur. I'm no 3d artist but I would feel embarrassed uploading something that terrible for the public to see. Sony always makes sleek products I seriously doubt they'll be giving us a flat plain box.
So it looks like the Wii.
I wouldn't mind if it looked liked that.
