Directly from Sony's press conference.
Looks a lot better than Xbox one.
both look ugly tbh but it doesn't matter, all about games
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
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.
Just pre-ordered ps4 :)
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.
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
I thought it looked like those things that stick out of muscles cars on top of the hood. @darth what is that?
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!
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
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?
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 ?
Both look great but i think ps4 looks really good
Pure sex, i just want to fuck it.
Indeed. Now, i want a Playstaion 4!!!!
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.
Nope. Ugly as sin.
idk some sins are damn sexy, if you know what i mean ;)
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 $399.99, that's amazing news. Suck it MS!!!!
A lot better? No
I think the Xbox One looks better,but not by much!I do think Sony won me over tonight and PS4 will be my main console!
Dude they are both ugly as FCK! Stop lying to yourself. Still man the 399 price point is awesome! It be funny if MS came out tomorrow announcing a price cut.
Just imagine the slim version of this........
I'm impressed, the guy who made a concept from the treaser was correct.
It ooozes ps2 nostalgia. That hyperblue line going across it. AAAAAHHHHHHH the memories
I don't really like the design but I'm glad it isn't as huge as the Xbox One.
They both look ****. Good stuff that I don't care much about their outer appearance. It's what it lets you insert that counts Why do I have 5 bubbles? Hmmm better get to trolling
For real?It looks the same as the Xbox one except its smaller.Sony didnt have a design so they copied the Xbox One.You would have to be a fanboy or just stupid to think it looks better or different.
Not as nice as the original phat PS3, but kinda reminds me of a futuristic looking PS2. If the controller is only a little bit bigger than the DS3, then this is a pretty slim console...would like to see it side by side with another console we all know for a size comparison.
lol, so much for "killing sony at E3", M$
I still think this and the bone look ugly but the more I look at the PS4 the more I like it. Hmmm :s
I don't think it's ugly but it doesn't excite me.
it would've looked better if the whole console had the glossy finish of the top part of the console.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
i think i will pick something that looks like a stealth bomber then a VHS player...
PS4 has a sleek, futuristic looking design. Xbox looks like a big ol Comcast DVR box. No comparison.
You sound excited. This design is hardly great. I'll get accustomed soon enough though
I loved the angles man.I love the design.
>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. http://i.imgur.com/RmRrmYK.... http://i.imgur.com/0mlukNf....
the only similarity i see is, its black and its a box...
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
Only the XBox looks a lot bigger in real life.
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 !
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.
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.
Kind of reminds of the PS2; not a bad console to harken to :) All that really matters is that it looks better than the Xbox One.
That's all that REALLY MATTERS???? Are you listening to yourself?
Sony fanboys are really something special, huh?
Yeah. I am. Hey, how is that DRM and used-game policy treating you?
I don't have an xbox one so how do you think the DRM and used game policies are treating me?
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.
Cool story, bro.
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
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.
They are practically the same size, lol
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..
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 PS4(WxHxL) 10-3/4" x 2" x 12" approx. XBox One 10-1/4" x 3-1/8" x 13-1/2" approx
DAMN its SLIM for a first release sku. Good job Sony!
just imagine how slim the slim version will be...
The equivalent to a piece of paper lol.
