As you all know at this stage, Sony's E3 event went pretty well (understatement of the year), and they're continuing to build the hype as the event progresses. The latest announcement is the system's packaging, which you can check out below...
Very minimalistic, pretty. :)
Can't wait to open it up and smell that new PS4 plastic smell! Then pick it up and look at the beautiful design! Oh what's this? A fingerprint!! Nooooo:(
lol indeed i was thinking the same thing
Awesome. Now if only a Vita bundle is announced.
yeah i was thinking that to myself a vita/ps4 bundle would make sense will be expensive though
PS4 design looks awesome especial vertically! http://admin.clickonline.co... The blue line is awesome! reminds me of the PS2 design! Edit! @Ilovetheps4 "Is it actually going to have like a glowing blue light on top?" I hope so!
Is it actually going to have like a glowing blue light on top? It looks like it based on the packaging.
I wish I could remember where I read it, but some body confirmed the blue power light.
If you noticed at the Sony E3 conference, when what's-his-name (can't remember his name atm) held up the PS4 to show it to the world, there was a clear "ribbon" down the center. But in pictures, it glows blue. So I'm pretty sure that it's a blue LED, which is awesome. Unless they do something similar to PS3. Remember early shots of PS3, even on PS3 packaging, the PS Button on the Sixaxis glowed red. But not in the final product. So we'll have to wait and see I guess.
Doesn't Sony normally drop all the hand held info at TGS. What do you say odd's are on ps4+vita for 499?
You would need to define normal. As this is coming up to the second year that Sony has been public about the Vita. The first year E3 was proving ground and received allot of information, last year was a wasteland and they did it at TGS. So it could be the same again his year with TGS being the Vita show. Or they could not bother at all. I hope for the former and not the later.
Zero. One of their biggest advantages is the price. No need to introduce " A higher priced model ".
@coolasj Whats wrong with options, I personally have disposable income to pay more then 399 for console and I would gladly pay extra for a vita bundle.
And they can do one at a rather reasonable price, too. Good thing I've already got my Vita.
You and me both. But if they announce an improved version with a price drop I'm buying it anyway. :)
Does anyone know if the vertical stand will be bundled with the console?
I doubt it. They never have in the past. Although, the stand has never been needed in the past, for me at least. Both my PS2 and PS3 stood up just find without one. I don't think I'd feel safe with PS4 though. It's too slim.
To much teasing this for me! :-(
I wish they did like a Day one special engraving like they are doing for XB1
Why so everyone would know your a sheep? or perhaps so you can make another way to make gamers feel left out?
So buying a console on release date makes you a sheep?? right...
no but the reason you stated "I wish they did like a Day one special engraving like they are doing for XB1" but I was not singling you out it was just a general statement in regards to special branding which has no meaning whats so ever.
I don't like the day 1 engraving at all. It will be annoying looking at the controller which says "2013" from 2014 onwards.
Wasn't the PS4 supposed to be bundled with a headset? I remember hearing something about that when the PS4 was first announced.
Yeah it will be included
Even comes with an HDMI, which is great!
PlayStation 4 System •PlayStation®4 System (Black) •PlayStation®4 DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller •HDMI Cable •Power Cable •Wired Mono Headset •USB Charging Cable ya mono headset its listed as in the box on all the pre-order sites
What about the stand in the picture?
If you buy the ps4 you will get a 500gb hard drive and this also: PlayStation®4 system × 1 Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK®4) × 1 Mono headset × 1 AC power cord × 1 HDMI cable × 1 USB cable × 1 Source: http://www.scei.co.jp/corpo...
Brilliant, one of the things that Sony should of done this gen is package a mic.
It looks happy and nice :D
I can't wait to smell it... ...........
lmao! My either bubble for you my friend.
They really gone back to the ps2 roots with this console on a few levels. You can tell it was a conscious effort to emulate the success of ps2.
Your right, Also the design reminds me of the PS2. :D
The style is simple yet dynamic, even when you look square-on to it you see two surfaces, always two sides for light to play with, you see two surfaces, two surfaces, 1, 2, shine, shiney, always two sides...remember...always geopolitics ssiiiiddees..shiny, shine shine. Stream of consciousness, I think the cloud my brain has infected !!
Simple and clean.
i shouldn't be looking at this i already cant wait! its so far away :(
I agree. The black and blue design of the console clearly harkens to the PS2, which I'm sure Sony has been wondering how to emulate its success. Even the game cases of PS4 games are blue, just like the ones we got at some point during the PS2 era. I just wish they were wider and the blue, darker. Now I just wonder one thing: how and where on earth do we insert the discs???
same here lol edit:: found it! Haha it's on the front on the left of the console. There is 2 ports and than the drive, it's so black you can barely see it haha.
500GB :( was hoping for a bigger HDD like 750GB or over
ALSO hoping is NTFS types so I be able to use my 128GB USB drive
I know it is annoying to do and it is an annoyingly restrictive file system but you could always format it.
games are not required to install from disc so 500gb should be suffice. if not, you can change it unlike the x1.
luckily, you can swap it out just like on the PS3 *Thumbs up
AWESOME!! Can't wait for this! haha but please for the love of God Sony, please include a charge cable longer than 3 feet -_-
yea no shit,,.. that annoyed the crap out of me.. having to sit 3ft away to charge. --but at least we didn't have battery packs....hahahahahhaaaaaaaaaaa aaa
The only drawback i see in the design is that it's very similar to the x-1... From just a couple of feet away they're hard to distinguish. They even have the same half matte finish...it it were me i would have made a huge playstation logo that glows when you turn it on, like some pc cabinets have today...just something that says BAM from a distance...that's just me.
looks fine, its packaging, I don't plan on leaving the system in it.
Includes a stand for vertical placement. Nice. (although I do really like the stand DreamGear made for the Slim 1.0)
Wait, where are the pictures? The site just has a picture of the PS4 with a dualshock controller, I can't see the box or anything? Can someone link it to me?
my wallet is ready!
that feeling when you remove the protective plastic from the glossy part....
