that PS4 box is really old school. reminds me of the PS1/PS2 with the big pictures of games. Remember back in the day, demo discs, man that takes me back.

They're both boxes that will meet the inside of my garbage bin on day one.

Wouldn't it make more sense to see how they're packaged inside? Lol.

slimeybrainboy1438d ago

Screw DRM, and launch lineups. I'm making my purchase decision based on the packaging.

Enemy1438d ago

My box has better lineup of image placement and composition!


Nitrowolf21438d ago (Edited 1438d ago )

I still have my original phat PS3 box :)

Godmars2901438d ago

What. You don't recycle? A villain is you.

JKelloggs1438d ago

You throw them away?

I always keep boxes of every electrical purchase. Still got my PS2 one

kneon1438d ago

They can come in a brown paper bag for all I care, I haven't played with the box since I was 2 :)

Elwenil1438d ago

I still have my Genesis box, my Playstation box, two original PS2 boxes, a fat PS3 and a slim PS3 box. Somewhere I have a big box full of NES game boxes and Nintendo Power magazines, lol.

cleft51438d ago

What are you talking about friend, I still have my PS3, 360, PS2, Super Nintendo, and I think my Sega Genesis original box. You don't throwaway your console boxes friend. That is just wrong.

abzdine1438d ago

PS4 package is sexy and smaaaaaall! 50% raw power more, no power brick.

Fairchild Channel F1438d ago


I still have my original NES box :)

DatRealBoy1438d ago

I always save my boxes lol force of habit I still have the ps3 phat box and the slim uncharted 3 box

ThanatosDMC1438d ago

The Xbone box is all nice and classy... wonder if that's why it cost $100 more?

v6volume1438d ago

You don't keep the boxes?????

LoveGaming1438d ago

I know right, why in the world are people getting excited over a cardboard box....

YNWA961438d ago

Remember Atari St and C Amiga days, when they had pictures of the 20-30 games you got with it!

GT671437d ago (Edited 1437d ago )

I still have my INTELLIVISION console box with "Burgertime" pictures.

Eonjay1437d ago

The things that stands out the most to me is just how damn slip the PS4 package is.

kickerz1437d ago

I like to keep the boxes and put things in them. Like CDs , Lego , cables lol and other things

thehitman1437d ago

Ouch so cold Enemey.. I still have my original 60gig ps3 box in my closet just cant bring myself to throw it out.

Thomaticus1437d ago

Not yet! Now we must admire the boxes!

crxss1437d ago

that's not even the ps4 box.... at least according to these pictures

@ crsxx
Those (first pic) are the mock-ups they've been using since announcement... the pic in the article is probably the real deal retail version. As for the unfolded, I don't know... maybe each region has different packaging.

On topic
I always keep mine... Yeah, they take up space in the attic, and are probably a fire hazard, but I can't bring myself to throw them away. Besides, you know how much more vintage consoles are worth with the original packaging?

Silly Mammo1437d ago

Funny, I'm getting the PS4 day 1, but I actually think the X1 packaging looks better. But since I don't play the packaging, it really has no relevance to me.

ZHZ901437d ago

PS4 box looks really cool. Looks like I'll keep it. :)

KwietStorm1437d ago

You throw them out? I recycle all my cardboard boxes, but all my video game console boxes are in the attic. Don't ask me why, they just are. Even my NES and 32X boxes are up there. Yea I had a 32X big whoop wanna fight about it?

ShinMaster1437d ago

I keep my boxes.
Comes in handy when moving.

UltimateMaster1437d ago

I like the PS4 Box art better.
Not only does it have a design art to it, but they show us what games you can play on it.
Isn't games an important part of your business?

sync901437d ago

I always keep the boxes. Hell, i've even got boxes in the attic for consoles i dont own anymore.

waltercross1437d ago

I Give all boxes to my kids, they take care of the rest!.

BoriboyShoGUN1437d ago

hell yeah I always keep my boxes too. Have the 360 MW2 box, the PS3 even the Wii boxes. In case you move or something BOOM perfect safe box for it :D

MRMagoo1231437d ago

actually i still have my original boxes from my ps, ps2 and ps3 all in my cupboard, i dont wanna chuck em away they hold memories, when i look at the boxes it makes me happy with nostalgia lol.

andrewsqual1437d ago

Launch line ups? I'd rather not be screwed over a few years down the line when a casual gimmick takes full priority over decent games which are really "games".
