It really does look like a 2nd gen console, how did they manage to keep it so sleek?!

abzdine1516d ago

Damn! they manage to make it so small from the first version!!
so maybe PS4 slim will be as slim as PStwo? I am amazed, really!

gaffyh1516d ago

Smaller and more powerful than the Xbox One, and no power brick. Just shows you the level of Sony as a hardware company compared to MS.

Cirehpsa1516d ago

A slim ps4 as slim as a ps2 would be great, but i imagine it's pretty jam packed as it is currently.

Need4Game1516d ago

Made Xbox One look more like a Brick.

How come some of you can't just enjoy the ps4 on its on merit, instead of always having to bring up the xbox one. It's like you are obsessed with the xbox one, and then wonder while the trolls show up. The PS4 is nice. Period.

silenius1516d ago

once again... thank you. :)

mistertwoturbo1516d ago

People need to stop insulting a Brick by calling it an Xbox One.

I'll tell you, an Xbox One isn't going to be used to build houses with.

wastedcells1516d ago

Sony makes all kinds of great products and this really helps make playstation special.

CryofSilence1516d ago (Edited 1516d ago )

That's really impressive how they kept that small form factor with an internal power source.

I would liken the Xbox One to a VCR more than I would a brick.

alien6261516d ago

The on,y reason m$ when with a big system was for the future they could release smaller versions of the system. That somehow brings more money. Look at Sony they done it many times. Sony is starting small and slick and now I can't imagine how smaller could the ps4 could get. M$ made big and I bet a lot of space in it

GribbleGrunger1516d ago

The design is familiar but modern:

Now give me a variation on the PS2 boot up sound and I'll die a happy man.

thereapersson1516d ago

But they might be used to burn one down... ;-)


The_Con-Sept1516d ago

I'd like to see the PS4 get smaller... But what would it look like?

Groo1515d ago

and by the Power of Greyskull

@Sitdownn - "It's like you are obsessed with the xbox one, and then wonder while the trolls show up."

You're right, because you showed up.

But to answer your question, both consoles are part of a new generation, and a launching at around the same time, so it's natural that there will be comparisons. The same thing happened with the PS3 and 360, and the Xbox and PS2, so don't see what is so bad about it.

If you're sad that PS4 is coming off as better than the Xbone, then that's your problem, and no one else's. I'm not saying you're wrong to want to purchase an Xbone, in fact I am considering getting one late next year, but early PS3 owners got the same stick from fanboys, and there was MORE of a reason to own a PS3 at that time i.e. cheapest blu-ray player on the market, and Sony's proven track record when it comes to games.

Japanese are very crafty :P.

karl1515d ago

that reminded me of the south park city sushi episode

"kinda like pearl harbor.... that was sneaky too"

Qrphe1516d ago

Good engineering, graphical power and internal power supply all in that compact box is a great feat.

majiebeast1516d ago

THE POWER ZEH CLOWDS! No wait thats the other company good engineering and design i reckon.

clearelite1515d ago (Edited 1515d ago )

"TeH power of public relations gimmicks!"...

Sony is bringing us quality products as usual while others depen mainly on advertising.

I_am_Batman1516d ago

That's what I was asking myself since the E3 conference. Maybe someone at Sony invented the shrink ray.

Godmars2901516d ago

They had several years of development time. Were likely thinking about it since the PS3 suffered all of it's backlash.

Foolsjoker1516d ago (Edited 1516d ago )

I think Mark Cerny is a wizard, how else would they fit it all in that tiny box?

JoGam1516d ago

Im my Italian voice.... "Its in there". ;-)

Narutone661516d ago

Must be related to Harry Potter.

RBdrift1516d ago

Well,don't think Cerny had a say in design, because he explained that he didn't want to see the the PS4 design tell E3.

elhebbo161516d ago

dont give cerny ALL the credit, I'm sure there was some hardworking japanese dude behind it as well.

the CPU is clocked a lot lower than on the PS3, so that helps a lot with heat aswell. Coupled with a smaller die size.

SniperControl1516d ago

Ok, one thing I dont get, the PS4 is more powerful and has an internal PSU. On the other hand the X1 is less powerful, the size of a 80's betamax player with an external PSU.
What the hell is in side the X1?

Gardenia1516d ago

In every Xbox One is a Microsoft employee who is there to collect your money every time you turn on the system

I_am_Batman1516d ago (Edited 1516d ago )

Rocket science-level stuff.
