Why on earth is the PS4 in this picture also, to me, the middle boxes looks like a tablet

The PS4 is a dummy unit for display purposes, and is actually the subject of the picture according to the one that shared it, though we saw plenty of those today and the surroundings are more unique :D

I prefer the playstation design in all honesty, I understand why some people would like this becasue it's nice and simplistic- but PS one is all way and cool like :3

Hey, last chance to get a ps4!! And let's set up a ps4 right in the middle of an xbone display. Face palm? Maybe? Maybe not.

Like it wasn't already obvious in the first place.
CraigandDayDay  +   723d ago
I STILL can't believe that in the year 2013 they are releasing a play and charge kit. The controllers should either have a rechargeable battery built in or include a free play and charge kit with the console.

And I still can't believe they have an external power supply.

ps4 should of been replaced with xbox one dummy...it could be that they must of not received one
BattleTorn  +   724d ago
Wow, didn't even see it amongst all the green, at first.
nukeitall  +   724d ago
I didn't see the PS4, read the comments and had to scan the picture 3 times before I noticed it.
UltimateMaster  +   724d ago
Who can miss that?
I saw it immediately when scrolling down.
HugoDrax  +   724d ago
"Wow, didn't even see it amongst all the green, at first."

EXACTLY! From a marketing standpoint I'm sure that's why Microsoft went with bright green packaging again. When consumers walk into retail locations, the first thing that will catch their eye is BRIGHT GREEN packaging. Don't get me wrong now, the blue color pallete for PS4 is Sexy! and Sleek!, it's just the thing that the eye will notice first is a LOUD Green color, before a soft blue color. Just my opinion..

It looks shit.
I'm not hating, it's just my humble opinion about the puke-green boxes.
JohnnyBadfinger  +   723d ago
Puke green = xbone
Smurf turd blue = PS4

wow look at the way the light reflects of the box, the scratches aswell. Also the corners are slightly rounde and the pictures on the box are not 8k resolution.

WOW cancelling my pre-order this box is junk...

LOL idiots these days who gives a shit aout the box, all we care about is whats inside those boxes (ps4,xbox, other assorted goodies)
shysun  +   724d ago
To much green! They need to tone it down a bit.
MiHX2  +   724d ago
There is a black box for the Day One edition.
andrewsqual  +   724d ago
But they should have just changed the colour for this console overall. Its a big problem I always felt I would have had with going Xbox was looking at your game collection and seeing the horrible green glow coming off any shelf or that corner of the room.

The lime green also destroys 95% of Xbox game boxarts. For example, which one of these is the ugliest and ruins the cover? http://cdn.dualshockers.com...
Sonic Generations is the only game that comes to mind that actually suited it. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-X...

Should have went with something else for this generation.
MikeNike310  +   724d ago
Are you sure?
UltimateMaster  +   724d ago
It's called Nuclear Radio Active Green.
HugoDrax  +   724d ago

"The lime green also destroys 95% of Xbox game box arts"

In my opinion you're viewing it all wrong. You think the green destroys the box art, but my perspective is that it allows Microsoft to differentiate its titles from competitors. Nintendo boxes are Cloud Blue, Sony a Deep/Royal Blue, Microsoft LOUD GREEN hahaha.

I'm just saying I don't find it more aesthetically pleasing than Nintendo/Sony's box art one bit, and I'm a professional graphic designer. I just believe if your average consumer walks into a store looking for a game, what catches their attention first will be Microsoft Loud Green, as opposed to Nintendo/Sony blue. Possibly generating interest for Microsofts product because of first impression.

Either way, I have to look at all 3 box arts since I own a Wii U, and will own both Next Gen consoles at launch as well.

Next Gen is among us console gamers, less than 40 days now...

Happy Gaming :-)
Rhaigun  +   724d ago
Exactly. They just slapped it with one color and a picture of the console. No creativity to this design at all. It couldn't have taken more than five minutes in photoshop.
Abriael  +   724d ago
Yeah, they went with recognizability instead of creativity. I don't like it as well, but it's commercially effective.

The only Xbox package I remember I really liked is the Forza Motorsport 2 Xbox 360 bundle from aeons ago.

I guess the Xbox One black day one package isn't that bad too, even if not very creative as well.

I still have the box of my original 20GB hdmi360, looks alot cooler than this, it was white with the differing shaded green circles if anyone remembers...
This X1 design is boring, I got the day one edition, the black box looks way cooler, they should have used that or version of that across the board IMO.

AH... box is a box I guess
Hellsvacancy  +   724d ago
Are we really going to attack them over the way the box looks now?

Who cares about boxes? my leftover boxes go to my kids, which soon get deformed
shysun  +   724d ago
Dont they focus test this stuff?!Psst
nukeitall  +   724d ago
Not only is it recognizable, but notice how it occupies the entire wall space. You can't miss it!

It also helps you focus on the product as well as display the simplicity of it all. Just like the tiles in Windows 8.

It is a pretty smart marketing technique.
rainslacker  +   724d ago
Well...the green does stand out and one would be hard pressed to not notice it or look at it. It's so gaudy though.

I'd liken the visibility factor and the way it will draw people's attention to an accident on the highway. People just can't help but look. It would fit well in Home Depot's lawn and garden section though...:P

And before everyone hates me for my comment, I'm just having a little fun.
xActionBasturdx  +   724d ago
Its a damn box people gonna throw away anyway...why does it even matter how 'green' it is

Stuntz  +   724d ago
i actually really like the green. It all matches nicely, and shows off the shelves.
Ketzicorn  +   724d ago
Although I don't particularly care for the green it is very bright and I've noticed that even though I'm going with the PS4 at launch when I walk into a Best Buy etc my attention first goes to the X1 display.
PixelNinja  +   724d ago
Really wish they went with the black boxes for all versions.
BX81  +   724d ago
Glad day one is black but from a display stand point I can see why they chose this.
christocolus  +   724d ago
nice....they still retaining the green....nov22 here i come.
thebudgetgamer  +   724d ago
(sniff) Everything is so green.
Stuntz  +   724d ago
Quite alright for me day one edition is all blacked out too. So ill have a variety of Black, and green :P
DigitalRaptor  +   724d ago
Damn.. slime green. Horrible.

I thought Microsoft would change this color scheme. They should've made them all black like the Day One edition.

You said in one of your other comments you had pre-ordered it.

I 100% agree with the people replying to you.

This pea soup green is not appealing, MS should bring back the brigther color green from the original xbox. The original packaging from the original xbox was so nice looking it caught your eye when looking around in stores.

can the xbox one controller be used for pc ?
hooba93  +   724d ago
not right away, I believe Microsoft said sometime next year it will be compatible for the pc

It's green... so does that mean it's eco friendly when they get thrown in the landfill?

Sadly, I feel the need to note that I am joking.
AKR  +   724d ago
While the green is a really eye-catching color ~ there's way too much of it. I prefer the PS4 and Wii U's designs better.
mixelon  +   724d ago
I wonder if anyones ever going to try competing with ms for the garish, attention grabbing colour schemes? It makes good marketing sense for MS.. But it would be funny if eventually someone uses bright red, or orange, or hot pink to elevate their visibility in stores.
rainslacker  +   724d ago
Think the only company I've seen a single unified color for recognition successfully is Apple. Everything is white and sleek. White is generally more appealing than bright green. People that like green tend to prefer the darker, softer hues of it. I know, because I like green.

Otherwise, I doubt their choice of color will really affect sales to any measurable degree. Maybe if the system itself were this color.:)

Good deal I think of XBox ONE here in Oz considering our high dollar rates -- AU599.00 for FIFA14 full game download with bonus upgrade of additional AU199.00 Forza5 + extra control pad + one year free subscription to XBox LIVE. ( overall AU798.00 ).
ThatOneDude  +   724d ago
The green stands out on shelves bringing attention to itself. And that's the purpose in a store, standing out and catching the customers eye.
rainslacker  +   724d ago
Standing out is one thing, repulsing is another. I wouldn't consider this shade of green to be too terribly appealing to the average person. It may catch people's attention, doesn't mean they'll be drawn to it. Color is a huge factor on subconscious decisions.
Mr_InterNational  +   724d ago
Green as in M$$$$$$$ green¡ Still doesn't appeal to me
DOOMZ  +   724d ago
Very cool!!!
JackISbacK  +   724d ago
i prefered black but they have gone for grren because that black xbox is recognisble in green simply ,xbox use to fade in black outer box,thats the reason....
