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.

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.

FIRST!

Abriael1513d ago

Am I weird for finding that instruction booklet damn sleek?

PerryCaravello1513d ago

I'm loving the blue. Microsft's "goolish green" is finally looking dated. Worked during the "X1" era.... but now it's played out and grotesque.

gamer421513d ago

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!

zeee1513d ago

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.

lawgone1513d ago

@Abriael, for a folded quick start guide? Yes, a little bit.

Abriael1513d ago

@lawgone: oh well, normality is overrated nowadays

Roper3161513d ago

@ perry

The only reason MS went with green because it's the color of the money which is the only thing they care about.

abzdine1513d ago

release date is close my friends!

Abriael1513d ago

@Need4Game: that was already known for a while, yeah.

CrimsonStar1513d ago

Holy crap ! That's an instruction booklet?

crxss1513d ago

IT COMES WITH THE VERTICAL STAND?! would be awesome if true

Razmossis1513d ago

I fear that headset will create a very noisy PSN environment. Really need something a bit more 'professional'

SniperControl1513d ago

@zeee
They weren't giving component cables (5 cables), they were giving composite (3 cables) cables out. Totally mental for a HDMI enabled device.

3-4-51513d ago

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.

I'd spend 20 minutes reading through before playing a game....lol

miyamoto1513d ago (Edited 1513d ago )

PS4 never looked so good!

I surely can not resist this baby!

Can't wait to hold that controller!

The controller curves really goes well with the console's straight lines.

Super Sleek Sexiness Perfection!

@roper and need4game
bubbles up
you guys funny me! Xd

President1513d ago

You see that Microsoft? No power brick!

Solence1513d ago

Xbox 1 is going to win the next gen console, they already won with pre orders.

The genius Don Mattrick is going to prove all haters wrong.

@3-4-5

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.

3-4-51512d 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.

@PerryCaravello - The industry has changed a lot since the PS2 Hay days. The PS4 will undoubtedly be a huge success, but owning 70 plus % of the market. Highly unlikely.

Divine1513d ago

those cords look pretty long

BitbyDeath1513d ago (Edited 1513d ago )

Anyone know what the plug (on the controller) next to the headphone input is for?

KwietStorm1513d ago

One of those extension ports. They could use it for basically anything from a chatpad to a more high end headset.

BitbyDeath1513d ago

Thanks have a helpful bub

RavageX1513d ago

It's for an upcoming feature.

I probably shouldn't talk about it but...

Well, you've seen The Matrix right? You know how they "jack" into the Matrix itself?

Yeah...you'll be jacking into all sorts of games soon.

:)

GT671513d ago (Edited 1513d ago )

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.
hardcore gamers not the only ones that buy games ya know.

KwietStorm1513d ago

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.

BitbyDeath1513d ago

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.

SweetIvy1513d ago

Have you played Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time? It's awesome ;)!
Also, check out on PSN, the Cave is nice!

GT671513d ago (Edited 1513d ago )

@ chickengamer

YES, i played sly,ratchet an clank trilogy,nfs Hotpursuit criterion (version) Rayman legend,GT5,Castlevania lord of the shadow,Marvel vs, Capcom 3,Super street fighter iv,Jax & Daxter collection,Ratchet an clank collection not much else. now if Sony make of ps1 era games specially R-TYPE,GRADIUS,EINHANDER,CONTR A i'll be happy camper.

nnodley1513d ago

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. Guess if you don't like any of the other Sony exclusive games or third party games then that sucks for you and I don't know what to tell you.
