Looks a lot better than Xbox one.
j-blaze  +   979d ago
both look ugly tbh but it doesn't matter, all about games
ZodTheRipper  +   979d 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  +   979d 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 :(
bunfighterii  +   979d ago

exactly what I thought when I first saw it- PS2-esque. I actually really like it, its a nice looking piece of hardware.
kreate  +   979d ago
Just pre-ordered ps4 :)
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   979d 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  +   979d ago
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!

wellard  +   978d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d ago

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  +   979d ago
Both look great but i think ps4 looks really good
SirBradders  +   979d ago
Pure sex, i just want to fuck it.
THE-COMMANDER  +   979d ago

Now, i want a Playstaion 4!!!!
M-M  +   979d 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  +   979d ago
Nope. Ugly as sin.
Dunpeal  +   978d ago
idk some sins are damn sexy, if you know what i mean ;)
pimpschitz  +   979d 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  +   979d ago
A lot better?

Themisterphenix  +   979d 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!

Dude they are both ugly as FCK! Stop lying to yourself.
Still man the 399 price point is awesome! It be funny if MS came out tomorrow announcing a price cut.

I'm impressed, the guy who made a concept from the treaser was correct.
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   978d ago
It ooozes ps2 nostalgia. That hyperblue line going across it. AAAAAHHHHHHH the memories
I_am_Batman  +   978d ago
I don't really like the design but I'm glad it isn't as huge as the Xbox One.
Irishguy95  +   978d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d ago
lol, so much for "killing sony at E3", M$
stage88  +   979d 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  +   979d ago
I don't think it's ugly but it doesn't excite me.
torchic  +   979d ago
it would've looked better if the whole console had the glossy finish of the top part of the console.
GrumpyOla  +   978d 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  +   978d 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  +   979d 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  +   979d 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  +   979d ago
i think i will pick something that looks like a stealth bomber then a VHS player...
gta2800  +   978d ago
PS4 has a sleek, futuristic looking design. Xbox looks like a big ol Comcast DVR box. No comparison.
peowpeow  +   979d ago
You sound excited. This design is hardly great. I'll get accustomed soon enough though
vlonjati77vlonjati  +   978d ago
I loved the angles man.I love the design.
Virus201  +   978d ago
>any idiot that thinks this looks like a xbox? sir you need to get your eyes checked

I beg to differ. They look very similar.
faysal  +   978d ago
the only similarity i see is, its black and its a box...
wellard  +   978d ago
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  +   978d ago
Only the XBox looks a lot bigger in real life.
GraphicX  +   979d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d 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.

Is it go full retard day? Do people believe that 360 owner automatically means I have to buy a One?? I'm no brand loyalist. I'll drop Xbox like a hot potatoe to go where my wallet is cherished.
KillrateOmega  +   978d ago
Cool story, bro.
DivineAssault  +   979d 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  +   979d 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  +   979d ago
They are practically the same size, lol
DivineAssault  +   979d 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  +   978d 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

10-3/4" x 2" x 12" approx.
XBox One
10-1/4" x 3-1/8" x 13-1/2" approx

it would be great if they offered a white version on launch. I would be all over that.
potedude  +   979d ago
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  +   979d ago
Agreed. It's good to see a different looking console for once instead of just a rectangular box.
00  +   979d ago
that's a nice design,
the blue is a nice touch.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   979d ago

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  +   979d ago
look like 2 PS2 duct tape together hence the whole PS2 generation back and will be double with PS4
Jaqen_Hghar  +   979d ago
300m sold confirmed?
Chucky2003  +   979d ago
the be fair both consoles look horrible,big ass VCRs
Jaqen_Hghar  +   979d 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  +   979d 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.
nigelp520  +   979d ago
ShabbaRanks  +   978d ago

ZBlacktt  +   978d ago
Yes, she was big phat and heavy. She ran hot and had the most issues with fail rate of all the models put out ( fact ). Nice try though.
EverydayGuy  +   979d ago
I like the gap in the middle, also I want to know how you going to put the disc in.
MasterofMagnetism  +   979d ago
I was wondering about the same thing.
moparful99  +   978d 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  +   979d ago
This PS4 is shaped like an eraser, to erase the Xbox One from memory
--Onilink--  +   979d 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  +   979d ago
Looks slim and neat but how do you turn it on? I dont see the on/off switch anywhere.
UnHoly_One  +   979d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d ago
Here's a close up to prove it.
vlonjati77vlonjati  +   978d ago
YOu just have to say PLAYSTATION TURN ON OOPS no obligatory peripheral required :)
SpinalRemains  +   978d 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  +   979d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d 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  +   978d ago
Where is the disk drive?
SpideySpeakz  +   978d ago
Where the hell is the power button. I haven't seen a power button yet on any of these consoles.
Virus201  +   978d ago
It's in the middle. Where the blue line ends, in front of the console.
