Looks a lot better than Xbox one.

both look ugly tbh but it doesn't matter, all about games
ZodTheRipper  +   409d ago
Wouldn't call it ugly. Reminds me of the PS2. I also like the blue bar that seems to go only halfway to the other side. Kinda fits to the new Dualshock design. Excited to see it IRL.

Whats more important for me is its noise levels. I'm hoping its quiet
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   409d ago
I don't want to call it ugly because it does remind me of the PS2 and I don't find the PS2 ugly at all. So I'll just say it looks disappointing, leaves more to be desired, etc. It looks better than the XB1, but that isn't saying much.

In the end both consoles lack that "next-gen feel" and just aren't visually impressive. They don't "wow" you or leave you in awe. Just one big "meh".

Only two USB slots and a HDMI out :(

@zod18

exactly what I thought when I first saw it- PS2-esque. I actually really like it, its a nice looking piece of hardware.
kreate  +   409d ago
Just pre-ordered ps4 :)
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   409d ago
i actually prefer the xbox one design. doesnt mean anything though because im not buying a console to look at it. it isnt about what the stupid box looks like...its about what the console itself is capable of. 100 bucks MORE for an xboner thats inferior to the ps4?

dress it up all you want but im never gonna be on board with that.
long live used games yo.
darthv72  +   409d ago
both
have such solid design with sharp edges.

I like how the ps4 can stand upwards. Looking at the two from the front they are both visually appealing.

From the side, the angled look of the ps4 would make it a tad different if put into a home theater setup.

I can see the xbox one in place with other A/V components. The PS4 would probably look best by itself due to its design.

edit: this is what the ps4 initially reminded me of. Sharp x68000

how many HDMI out do you want? ohh...I get it, you secretly wished for Sony to announce the PS4 as cable box too, right? sorry bud, NOT GONNA HAPPEN!

$399...GREATNESS AWAITS!
wellard  +   408d ago
LOL yeah damn thats just as ugly as the xbone, but i still cant wait to get my hands on one. Im kind of excited about having a playstation again after spending most of this gen on an xbox
AliTheSnake1  +   408d ago
At first I was like why sony ?
But then it grew on me, when i Saw it from the sides. It relates to the PlayStation Heritage.I think it looks amazing. Can't wait to get my hands on it. BTW It is the same size of the PS3 Slim . According to Shuhei Yoshida

Quit being fanboys for just one second and realize that both systems are ugly rectangles. And how often does anybody actually look at it anyways when playing a game?
Rhythmattic  +   408d ago
AliTheSnake1

If that is the size thats pretty amazing for a first ver release console..

I noticed with the pics the PS has an inbuilt Power supply , like all PS 3 revisions.... Bitchin'

BTW, do we know if the Bone has a power brick again ?
Muffins1223  +   409d ago
Both look great but i think ps4 looks really good
SirBradders  +   409d ago
Pure sex, i just want to fuck it.
THE-COMMANDER  +   409d ago
Indeed.

Now, i want a Playstaion 4!!!!
M-M  +   409d ago
To be honest, I think it just takes a while to soak in. I hated the DS4 design when they first showed it, but now I love it. Disappointed with the console design first hand, but now it looks pretty sleek.
GameCents  +   409d ago
Nope. Ugly as sin.
Dunpeal  +   409d ago
idk some sins are damn sexy, if you know what i mean ;)
pimpschitz  +   409d ago
I think the design is about what I was looking for. At first glance I was like awesome, then I was like "kinda looks like the XBO," then I just melted as the conference went underway. Can't believe that they are releasing the console for $399.99, that's amazing news.

Suck it MS!!!!
Software_Lover  +   409d ago
A lot better?

No
Themisterphenix  +   409d ago
I think the Xbox One looks better,but not by much!I do think Sony won me over tonight and PS4 will be my main console!

I_am_Batman  +   408d ago
I don't really like the design but I'm glad it isn't as huge as the Xbox One.
Irishguy95  +   408d ago
They both look ****. Good stuff that I don't care much about their outer appearance. It's what it lets you insert that counts

Why do I have 5 bubbles? Hmmm better get to trolling

Flames76  +   408d ago
For real?It looks the same as the Xbox one except its smaller.Sony didnt have a design so they copied the Xbox One.You would have to be a fanboy or just stupid to think it looks better or different.
rainslacker  +   408d ago
Not as nice as the original phat PS3, but kinda reminds me of a futuristic looking PS2. If the controller is only a little bit bigger than the DS3, then this is a pretty slim console...would like to see it side by side with another console we all know for a size comparison.
titletownrelo  +   408d ago
lol, so much for "killing sony at E3", M$
stage88  +   409d ago
I still think this and the bone look ugly but the more I look at the PS4 the more I like it.
Hmmm :s
mandf  +   409d ago
I don't think it's ugly but it doesn't excite me.
torchic  +   409d ago
it would've looked better if the whole console had the glossy finish of the top part of the console.
GrumpyOla  +   409d ago
I remember feeling excited when the PS3 console was first shawn. I didn't get that feeling when I saw the PS4 though. Maybe it's just me.
Eyeco  +   409d ago
It's an interesting design but I really don't like Matte, I really wished sony kept the the shiny design or at least used a white/satin silver colour to separate it from X1 seeing as the 2 are releasing around the same time.
faysal  +   409d ago
any idiot that thinks this looks like a xbox? sir you need to get your eyes checked... this looks classic yet new.. and thoes angle!!!
GameCents  +   409d ago
This thing is hideous! I swear fanboy goggles are worse than beer goggles! Xbox One is ugly too but this thing is no looker either.
faysal  +   409d ago
i think i will pick something that looks like a stealth bomber then a VHS player...
gta2800  +   409d ago
PS4 has a sleek, futuristic looking design. Xbox looks like a big ol Comcast DVR box. No comparison.
peowpeow  +   409d ago
You sound excited. This design is hardly great. I'll get accustomed soon enough though
vlonjati77vlonjati  +   409d ago

I beg to differ. They look very similar.

i would have said hellz no youre mad but after looking at those pics there are similarities. I prefer the ps4 and i just love the size of it
ZBlacktt  +   408d ago
Only the XBox looks a lot bigger in real life.
GraphicX  +   409d ago
reminds me a lot of the PS2 or PS2 slim for some reason. not sure i'm sold on the look of it, not that i really care how it looks, so long as it doesn't get YLOD or any other colour !
Hicken  +   409d ago
Yeah, PS2 was also the first thing I thought of. The more I look at it, the more I like it, too.

The XBOne I don't dislike, but it's definitely not as attractive.

Damn, the PS4 is sexy.
rainslacker  +   408d ago
I got the feeling too. I'm indifferent on it really. It's not ugly, not super awesome. Will pass final judgement when I open up the box it ships in. It's actually a pretty small console for what's under the hood though. Was surprised by that. Either way, I didn't think the look mattered when they didn't show it, didn't think the look of the One mattered, and don't think the look matters that much now.

DivineAssault  +   409d ago
I like the way it looks.. Its a little big but sitting flat looks good to me.. PS2 reminiscent more than just visuals.. It will rule the console market like PS2 as well

shadow2797  +   409d ago
Big? One of the first things I thought was how small it looks. It has to be half the size of the Xbox One. I have no idea how they did it.
UnHoly_One  +   409d ago
They are practically the same size, lol
DivineAssault  +   409d ago
look again man.. They have pics with the dual shock next to it so u can get a better idea of the size.. Its not massive but its bigger than i wouldve hoped.. Not complaining though because i think it looks cool sitting flat..
shadow2797  +   409d ago
Okay, you're right.

PS4 (width x height x length)
27.5 x 5.3x 30.5 cm
Xbox One (estimated based on USB port size)
26.3 x 8 x 34.3 cm

The PS4 being thinner threw off my sense of proportion. Still, the PS4 doesn't have an external power brick. The Xbox One does. Considering the PS4 is higher spec'd, it's pretty impressive.

For those that don't use the metric system thats

Big Vents
Huge vents for the cooling, and for the supposed extra MHz they squeeze out of it.

Personally I like it, gonna look sweet underneath my TV.

Even the rhomboid shape looks kinda cool...
Rusty515  +   409d ago
Agreed. It's good to see a different looking console for once instead of just a rectangular box.

the blue is a nice touch.

If the PS4 isn't a futuristic looking console then i don't know what is, Sony hit the nail on the head on the design.

This is how a next gen console is supposed to look, reminds you of something from Star Trek next generation.
Sharius  +   409d ago
look like 2 PS2 duct tape together hence the whole PS2 generation back and will be double with PS4

Jaqen_Hghar  +   409d ago
PS4 is shorter, less wide if a man isn't mistaken, and more powerful to boot. Also looks very nice from the way I'll be seeing it (from the front).
Riderz1337  +   409d ago
I like it to be honest. It's small, sleek, and stylish. I like that you can choose to either lay it flat or make it stand up on one side which makes it convenient to place in different areas in your home. Overall it's a great design.

I was wondering about the same thing.
moparful99  +   409d ago

That's the whole reason for the angled front.. The disc drive is in the slot between the upper and lower sections and the angled front gives the user easier access to the power button and the disc slot...
Rezka  +   409d ago
This PS4 is shaped like an eraser, to erase the Xbox One from memory
--Onilink--  +   409d ago
both very similar, the PS4 less boxy and thinner, but thank good we dont see the back because it looks awful, and does not match the rest of the console, but i guess they had to do ventilation somewhere
r21  +   409d ago
Looks slim and neat but how do you turn it on? I dont see the on/off switch anywhere.
UnHoly_One  +   409d ago
They forgot it.

Back to the drawing board. lol

Seriously though, that's a great question, I have no idea where it is.

??????
r21  +   409d ago
Right, i see the vents(looking cool there) but i see no physical buttons. Maybe they went back to touch only buttons?

If so, that sucks for me. Back when i had the touch sensitive buttons ps3, it had a hard time detecting my touch XD At least theres the turning it on using the controller though.
shadow2797  +   409d ago
Look closely on the front. I didn't see them at first either. They're in the vertical "crack" when the console is laying horizontally. The power button is on top and the eject is on the bottom.

If you still don't see them, follow the blue LED to the front of the console.
r21  +   409d ago
I dont think they'd place the on/off switch in such a tight space. Im positive they're choosing touch controls for the ps4.
shadow2797  +   408d ago

Its there, hidden on the back just to the left of the HDMI and above the power cord space.

You could always say
"Xbox Turn on PS4"
Inception  +   409d ago
Looks like PS2 slim but with that right angle thing. Not bad but looks sleek and definitely better than the big-bulky-boring Xbone :P
airgangstarr  +   409d ago
its definetlt a eye soar but its smaller the xbox1 which is a big plus an besides it doesnt matter a year or so later they will have a new model as per usual
CaptainYesterday  +   409d ago
I was really expecting the PS4 to be more curvy but I do like this design would like to see it next to the PS3 to compare the size though.
XxGHOSTxX-420  +   409d ago
Where is the disk drive?
SpideySpeakz  +   409d ago
Where the hell is the power button. I haven't seen a power button yet on any of these consoles.
Virus201  +   409d ago
It's in the middle. Where the blue line ends, in front of the console.
