The PS4 Was Designed To Not Embarrass You - Make You 'Feel Proud About Including' It In Your Home

Your parents come visit your house. Or the person you're dating gets their first look at your living room and your entertainment center. They see your hot new PlayStation. Sony hopes their next console won't suddenly bring you shame.

Correct, It was designed to await greatness.

NewMonday1640d ago

it's also nice that it doesn't always film you and may embarrass you in front of the whole world like that other thing.

Or give it to someone so they can exploit you with it.

eXploitbox One with the magical power of Kinect.

Only suckers need apply.

ABizzel11639d ago

It actually looks pretty good in that pic.

JuJuRMJ1640d ago

What would bring me shame is having a Xbone in the living room instead of a PS4. I will not dishonor my gaming privileges and the future of gaming with that POS in the living room! PS4 will look stunning for all to see in my home!

Krew_921640d ago (Edited 1640d ago )

I've never seen that one, LOL.

That's a good one, now that I look at it, it does look a lot like an eraser... At least the shape.

3-4-51640d ago

At first I was like ehh it's ok..

The more I look at it, and especially with the other colors thread that is around looks beautiful in a simplistic Japanese kind of way.

If that makes sense.

It reminds me of a futuristic building

TXIDarkAvenger1640d ago

The design is terrible in comparison to previous Sony consoles. Hey, fanboys send me some that shit your on so I too can believe this console looks good.

RavageX1640d ago

So the PS1 was quite the looker to you eh?

TXIDarkAvenger1640d ago

Yes, at the time it was even though I owned an N64.

The PS4 is practically like Xbox One except on a slant. They both look like cable boxes. Not that it matters about what a console looks like but for people to say it looks amazing is just absurd.

RavageX1640d ago (Edited 1640d ago )

I can't really agree or disagree, I don't hate it or particularly like it, I'm just...ok with it I suppose. As far as the Xbox goes...I feel the same way.

It fits it's name IMO. xBOX.

(Please note I'm talking about looks only, as far as which I'd would be PS4 and that is not based on looks alone, that's based on everything else)

On a performance level, if the PS4's shape and everything helps stop it from overheating and such, then I love it, lol.

Sleek, most powerful, awesome price...WIN!

hazardman1640d ago

Ill give you powerful and awesome but sleek nah...PS4 one of the ugliest consoles ever.

GamersRulz1640d ago

designing a console that is more powerful than your competitor in a 65% smaller form factor is engineering marvel, oh also it has internal power brick!!

also the design is pure art, something you can't say for a shoe box or a DVR.

hazardman1640d ago

Dude dont get me wrong man im gonna enjoy my PS4. I just dont think its as sexy as most are making it out to be.

Funny how when it was revealed most everyone was put off by looks now thats its getting all this praise. Its the most beautiful game console ever...ok!

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx1640d ago

I thought the Playstation 4 was kinda ugly at first, but after closer inspections the look really grew on me. It has a futuristic Ps2 sorta look. The Ps2 console was legendary, truly one of the best consoles ever made (at the time) :P It makes sense that they'd design this hunk of beauty to look a bit like it's older bro

Polysix1640d ago (Edited 1640d ago )

come on! it's a great design considering the power insde! MS couldn't come close and didn't even try - they just took a box and threw stuff into it along with a gigantic fan and called it a day (hence their over heating problems) - they couldn't even fit the PSU inside that giant VCR casing!? WTF?

PS4 is the best looking playstation yet, easily, you have to see it in reality to appreciate that. #nobias

and no , nothing to do with praise making us shift opinion. The fact is on first reveal it didn't look great due to how the guy was holding it, and it doesn't photograph well due to it's angles (like some cars). In reality or moving video you can see how nice it looks and it's much better finished than Xbone which has really cheap looking plastic!

The Jack Tretton "drops the mic" GTTV interview where the camera keeps sweeping back and forth shows it well.

I personally will have it horizontal and I know it'll look sleek and fit in well under my tv. Love it!

Joe: Do you want to come over and play some video games?

Friends: Yeah bring it ON!
(They enter the room)

PS4 version:
Friends: Wow what is that thing?
Joe: Its the new PS4
Friends: ....Pee Esss Foooouuuurrr (all hypnotized)

Xbox One version:
Friends: Doritos and Mountain Dew. Your trying to kill us aren't you?
Joe: Ehh whatever just eat it. It tastes good
(Examines the room)
Friends: Uhhh.. Cable box? Were not here to watch cable TV!
(Friends run away and one of them trips over the Xbox One power brick on the way out)

Raf1k11640d ago

I thought the comment was 'meh' until I got to the power brick :)

TXIDarkAvenger1640d ago

The comment was meh when he said "Doritos and Mountain Dew. Your trying to kill us aren't you?". Like a majority gives a shit.

Convas1640d ago

I have both a PS3 and a 360, they sit on my desk sandwiching my LED-LCD, both are black.

The PS4 and XB1 will occupy the same space eventually and there will be damn sexy in my all-black line up.

If you think that casuals will really give a damn what console is sitting under your TV, you've lost the plot.

YNWA961640d ago

The PS4 will also emit old spice deodorant too when these gamers get sweaty, and project a holographic display of some friends mom... awesome... add that to the list.... is there anything else left for people to drool over? You would think this machine is the messiah...

jmc88881640d ago

They'll care when they figure out they are being spied upon.

They'll care when they paid $100 more and the graphics quality and frame rate are severely lacking comparing to the PS4.

They'll care when the console they overpaid for, decides it doesn't want to run, just because it the console kill switch and it's microsoft mommy won't calm its temper tantrum.

Casuals will care.

YNWA961640d ago

If casuals ever EVER cared, the world would be a better place, but they do not, and never will...

Convas1640d ago

Yo homie, pay attention, we're talking about people who come to you place and see your consoles.


RavageX1640d ago

I wonder what the casuals will say when they find out they have to have internet to play, they have to install all their games, they have to have Kinect, and they have to trade their games through "certain" retailers...for starters.

Casuals want simplicity, this system does not have it.

reko1640d ago

designed for greatness.. yes!
