Pictures of the Contents of the PS4 Box and of the Bundled Headset Appear

We already know that the box of the PS4 will include the console, the DualShock 4, a HDMI cable, an headset, a power cord, an USB cord and the instructions. What we didn't yet know is how some of those components will look. (PS4)

Update The picture is confirmed as legit (I wouldn't yet say "official", as it didn't appear on any Sony website), as it appeared on the Amazon UK product listing.

Update 2: added picture of the headset plugged into the DualShock 4

I see this and I get excited.

I think Sony fully intends to mimic the success of the PS2. Look at that PS4, that's the PS2 Sequel! Looks very similar.

Nope, that instruction booklet is the finest instruction booklet I have ever seen, but seriously the PS4 looks like amazing so far! I can't wait for launch!

Good thing they are boxing HDMI cables now. I still have my original black piano PS3 but the last I remember, they were still boxing it with the Component Cables back then. Not sure if newer PS3 models come with HDMI?

Yes, i agree. It looks like Sony's out for blood. They are doing everything right so far. PS2 success in today's world is kind difficult especially MS spending billions in marketing and time exclusive games/dlc but PS4 will do great no doubt about it.

No...It's the first thing I noticed. I grew up playing games where, when I got a new game, I would open the box and not play the game until I'd read every page in the manual.

There was always good interesting stuff in them and that just kind of died off.

insomnium2  +   955d ago

I think you have a bit of nostalgia going on there. I too used to read the manuals of all the games thoroughly in the Nes, MD and SNES-era but nowadays I don't bother. The swich to the manual we have now (pretty much nonexistant when compared) doesn't bother me at all.

If it's NOT nostalgia for you however it's too bad. I don't need them but I do understand both ways.
3-4-5  +   955d ago
@ inso- yea nostalgia kicks in a bit. lol, but also I actually enjoy reading. I could read for hours as long as it's something I'm interested in, so a game I like falls into that category.

They were also pieces of art to me too kind of. Also there was good information, background info on characters, tips, background story overall, pictures and other art that may or may not have made the game.

They aren't a need, more of a want, but there are still millions of us out there that would appreciate them still. I guess you could say there is still a market for manuals....but I'd never pay more for one.

if SONY was even close mimicing ps2 success we would have more games than zombies,fps,multiplayer type games then. im not hating on ps4 but rather like to see more than those titles. i hardly turn on my ps3 tired of same titles over and over.killzone,unchrated,call of duty,socom,battlefield. if ps4 the incarnation of ps2 Sony!!!! please bring fun variety games back to everyone and not push old school gamers to the curb.

PS2 didn't exactly have the most stellar launch lineup. PS4 isn't even close to being available, and it already looks A LOT better at release. The bombardment of Indie games should also quench your want for variety.

PS4 has 20 inhouse exclusives releasing this year. Should have something for everyone. Failing that you got a ton of indie and 3rd party games to look forward to.

Hate to break it to you but Sony has had way more games than just killzone, uncharted, call of duty, socom, and battlefield. They clearly had the most variety than MS too.

KwietStorm  +   956d ago
I've been wanting to know the same. The only info I can give you is a Sony exec on the official PlayStation message forum leaning towards yes (sorry I don't have the link), and Amazon listing the headset under PS4 accessories. Obviously not confirmation, but I'm hopeful.

I cannot wait to get my hands on this console. It reminds me so much of the PS2 just with sexier lines ... I am really loving the DS4 also.

The first comments on that page summed it up for a lot of people "i am an xbox guy all the way but atleast sony is putting out information, details etc(know this was leaked) but MS is basically silent on everything which isnt good when the competition is throwing one two punches everyday. kudos to sony.

The only problem is that a HUGE part of the PS2's success was they DVD player. At the time the format was relatively new and I know for a lot of people it was their first DVD player. Bluray hasn't had the same impact and now with digital becoming an ever growing alternative, I don't think Bluray will ever reach that level of install base.

I do think that PS4 is going to be hugely successful, though. Just not PS2 successful.

In what way does a picture of the console along with the controller and a few leads suggest that they are ahead of production?
Arai  +   956d ago
If they weren't this type of material wouldn't be out there already.
Not to mention all the actual hardware at E3, packaging is finalized also.

You should take a look at FoxConn, the same company outputs 8m Iphones in a week.
Not to mention all the pre-orders Sony is allowing around the world, I think it's safe to assume that their production is going well.

Nevermind, looking at your replies I can see that you're a troll.

not so much the picture but Sony told places that can take as many preorders as they like which is why all kinds of PS4 bundles showed up at places like Amazon. That would leave me to believe that they will have more units available at launch than they initially thought
Lockhart  +   956d ago
But this article is claiming it's leaked.. so technically this doesn't mean that it is "out yet". I don't see how a picture of the console (which we've seen before), along with a few leads, implies that they are ahead of production.

They have months to work on production for launch, so it's pretty obvious that they would allow tons of preorders. It's just smart business.

HD_GAMER1989  +   956d ago
judging by the insanely huge demand for day 1 preorders that early launch window might not be possible it seems like releasing at the same time as xbox one might provide a greater launch day stock to compete with xbox one; however i have a feeling ps4 releasing on or before black friday might benefit them more.whatever sony decides im sure will keep liver punching the xbox one sony is pissed at this gen 1 year behind fiasco.

also i may note that im starting to wonder if im the only one that has this strong feeling that ms is completely setting them selves up for a disastrous launch this november.

Not sure, but it's a mono earbud so if you can listen to in-game audio, it's not going to sound that great. The good news is that, unlike XBoxOne proprietary audio jack, PS4 will work with just about any headset you may currently have.

It will be for other human comms only just like 360's headset. You wont get the game's soundtrack and gunfire etc coming through that tiny little thing!

I can only think that this is pretty 'doable', Sony in concerns of online fee was never one to desire the return in exponentional speed, so I can only assume either by creating a new account or perhaps a 30 month free trial code.

It is in their best interest to lure you & me in so they can then convince you to buy the product, it's a good and known strategy.

Still it's far cheap, so either way i will be getting the yearly one.

They are making a profit on the PS4 right away this time. Unlike the PS3 which they were selling at a loss. I think I heard $25.00 profit for every console sold from one of the Sony reps at E3. I hope that's true because Sony deserves it. They are being very good to us gamers.

when does a company usually announce the release of a new systems date and launch titles usually

its been so long since a new console launched I cannot remember, well, I didn't pay attention to the wii u launch at all, the only game I want on that is monster hunter

so far the only ps4 game I want is killzone

and the only xbox game I want is
I want halo 5 but that most likely won't be a launch title, Microsoft are not smart enough for that apparently

I think I will be waiting at least a year before even thinking about a new console

every game I want is going to be on pc besides killzone and I can wait
