Sony’s PS4 Teaser Trailer: Frame By Frame Screengrabs

Sony have just teased their brand new PS4 console, but it’s one hell of a tease, with the video flashing by quicker than the eye, especially at the end.

Thankfully, not quicker than a quick bit of screengrabbing, so here’s the details – industrial design, big vents, your usual ‘PlayStation’ brand and a cute, angular ’4′. (PlayStation, PS4, Sony)

Yeah, I'm excited for the PS4. Unless Microsoft shows something really exciting tomorrow I think I will be sticking with the PC/PS4 combo next generation (at least for a few years until the Xbox Infinity drops in price).

I cannot even begin to fathom what Sony's first-party studios, Naughty Dog in particular, are going to achieve with this new hardware. It's mind-boggling really.
dboyc310  +   653d ago
Imagine if sony shows off the design tomorrow and announces that it will start taking pre orders =O *faints*. I have a feeling Sony will announce something big this week just to garner hype as well . I'll be waiting.
_-EDMIX-_  +   653d ago

Sony is already planning to reveal info on a new game! LOL! They are pretty much trolling the crap out of MS.

They are literally putting the nail in the coffin with every week, they wont' stop releasing teasers or making of videos etc.

They are keeping peoples minds on PS4 EVEN ON THE EVE OF A MS REVEAL! Too funny, even on the day of, Sony has news to reveal regarding a new game from Japan. Sony's ad team is doing a great job right now!

Don't think so? Look on N4G's page and see what all the top news is about on the eve of the New Xbox reveal.

Sony has more planned this week, I'm sure.


released today! LOL!

To be fair ED, There is nothing to really say about the 720 that hasn't been said over and over again for the past few months. It's just a wait and see game until tomorrow.

OT: Sony is really stepping up their game in the marketing for next gen. Not a week has gone by where they haven't done something for the PS4 hype. The next month before E3 is going to be a lot of fun with each company trying to outdo the other.:) E3 might actually turn out to be pretty awesome this year.
solidt12  +   653d ago
Please just start the pre-orders already! I am ready to give Sony my money.

There is a Black orb in one of the frames = orbis?

Maybe has to also do with this other circular image

Arai  +   653d ago
It's a mixture of a lot of things, PSEye2, DS4, the console and who knows whatever else.

Matte finish with chrome accents does the trick though.
Blackdeath_663  +   653d ago
yeah that bit has confused me the most, the console appears to be a square shape with no round edges yet there is a pic of a round metal grill which doesn't look that big, we saw the new pseye and the ps4 controller and neither of them have that shape. it maybe the bottom side of the corner of the console? maybe there is a new cooling solution on the ps4

sorry to say, but i aint less interested in seeing the new xbox tomorrow after looking at those screen grabs
Studio-YaMi  +   653d ago
I'm still eager to see what's MS cooking,but at the time being,Sony has my full attention.

The aggressive behavior Sony showing is just awesome !
nirwanda  +   653d ago
I agree yami, sonys got my money at the mo but I could easily be swayed the other way if MS come out with the more powerful system.

You don't honestly think the marketing department at Sony right now is like "Oh no the Xbox will be so awesome, we need to do more marketing!!" do you?
What we see here is called competition and Sony's doing it right.

That teaser confirmed that the PS4 game cases would look like this because in the end they tease something that is a blue line.

That actually looks decent. I'm ok with a hint of blue, just as long as they don't go full-on blue like the Vita game cases.

That console you linked is a monstrosity. That thing looks like the Freedom Tower console or Pyramid Head's console.

Plz let us hope the actual console does not have triangular designs or a point.
steve30x  +   652d ago
Thats a Sony Blue ray player that you can buy now. Its not a console and if you pause the video between 0.17 and 0.18 you will see something similar to it.

Seems like the modeled it after a gaming PC case.

Parasyte  +   653d ago
It just the angles and what appear to be ventilation ports that remind me of cases that I've seen from the likes of NZXT, Raidmax, Azza, BitFenix, and InWin.
Embolado  +   652d ago
For all we know Sony could of just blurred the image of a Netgear router, j/k ;P
Dms2012  +   653d ago
What happened to "It doesn't matter what it looks like"? I read that comment several times after Sony's reveal didn't showcase the actual console.
C-Thunder  +   653d ago
It still doesn't matter, but that doesn't mean people aren't interested in what it looks like.
MysticStrummer  +   652d ago
Come on, man. It doesn't matter in terms of deciding on a purchase, but that doesn't mean anyone would just ignore the design once it's revealed.
TemplarDante  +   653d ago

I wish I had a billion dollars, I'd be like Oprah and say,

Wow, Just waiting to see the beast is bringing on a Christmas vibe to me :D

i hope the boot up is different from the vita or ps3 idk if they are different but the xmb needs to be very different from anything else it was so disappointing and disgusting when my ps3 booted up just like my psp
iliimaster  +   653d ago
somthing to remember like the ps2 the ps1 dreamcast the original sega those were magical
iliimaster  +   653d ago
i forgot the first xbox boot up aswell that one was awesome lol
mushroomwig  +   652d ago
They were magical because you remember them as nostalgia, that's all.
Clarence  +   653d ago
Sony not showing the PS4 in feb was perfect play. By doing this, it kept the hype train going. Now M$ will have to show their console tomorrow because they dogged Sony for not showing theirs.

When e3 gets here the PS4 will be revealed as well as new games and other surprises.

nirwanda  +   653d ago
Your right MS will definitely show there's but they will just show a few games and hold back most of them for e3 to try and get the last bit of hype before launch

TemplarDante  +   653d ago
This is a huge tease.
What I see.
1)Flashes of the console.
2)The PSEye for PS4 camera
3)The DS4 controller.
4)The Big black box it will come in.
5) The foam panels that will hold it in place in the box/packaging.
6)A prototype of the console laser cut in concept foam.
7)It will have a sexy blue LED light around or as a part of it. This is symbolised by the 3 flashes at the end, much like the 3 flashes of red on the Power button when the PS3 switches off.

A sexy blue LED lights on a Silver/Black console..
My Lord...
Sony, you're going to give me a heart attack!

That moment when a blurry teaser from Sony makes PS4 the #1 Twitter trend ahead of Xbox, less than 24hrs of the next Xbox reveal.
Cryptcuzz  +   653d ago
Let us all continue this trend! On to Twitter, Facebook, and any other social network that maybe relevant my friends and continue the hype!
GamersRulz  +   653d ago
hahaha, by showing a blurry image of the console, PS4 twitter trended higher than Xbox just 24 hours of its reveal. well played Sony
Cryptcuzz  +   653d ago
Sony strategy for Playstation has been great so far in terms of the PS4, could it be directly because they hired a new marketing firm?

Whatever it is, I like what they are doing. Classy, aggressive, strategic and spot on.
Waller  +   652d ago
I don't care if I get downvoted for this opinion, but how exactly is it classy to reveal this the day before your competitor's reveal? It seems rather dick-ish, to be honest. Seriously, you got your day, now give Microsoft theirs.
Cryptcuzz  +   652d ago

That is the aggressive part about this little teaser.

I am not talking about this teaser alone, I am talking about so far in general with how Sony (possibly there new marketing firm) has generated buzz and hype for the PS4 thus far.

In terms of this little teaser, classy or not, this video had nothing to do with the Xbox reveal, it simply gave its fans a glimpse of how the system looks. It did not throw the Xbox reveal under the bus by any means. Whether it was done indirectly, hey, the gaming business is very competitive.

Keeping your fans thoughts and interests on your product despite any looming reveal of your competitors product is part of marketing 101. No harm made, no harm done, simply ensuring your fans and potential fans still have the unveil of how the system looks coming up at E3 this year.

Cheers man.
