Why the PlayStation 4 is slanted

Console makers are supposed to make hardware that is both attractive and practical. You want easy access to USB slots and the power button, but you also want to enjoy looking at the big box stuffed next to your television for the next five to 10 years. Sony claims that the parallelogram look of the PlayStation 4 serves both schools of thought.

Because it looks as cool as James Dean's haircut.

FACT: The PS4 is a slanted because the aerodynamic parallelogram design helps with the processing of all those 60fps & 1080p units.

you wrote the first part so maturely that's I did not see this part coming " processing of all those 60fps & 1080p units "

Thank you Shivvy24, I just wanted to share a joke with you all!

Every time I saw Aoki I kept saying Loki... Toshimasa Loki.

You have the mind of an engineer.

Because XB1 was sitting on top of it.

The "design" aspect also has to do with how the "numbers" are designed in the logos. The "2" in the PS2 logo had a "boxy" look. Therefore, the launch PS2 had a "boxy" design. The "3" in the PS3 logo had a "curvy" look, so the launch PS3 had a "curved" top and curvy features. Now, the "4" in the PS4 logo is naturally slanted, so it makes sense for the launch PS4 to have "slants" implemented into its design. It's really an aesthetically appealing design concept. Makes me wonder how the PS5 will be designed to look...

i dont think either system looks that attractive.

They are both just "average"

KwietStorm1289d ago

Well I don't think either have some off the wall amazing artistic design, but the PS4 definitely stands out next to other media devices. We all knew the direction Microsoft was going, but when the console was actually revealed, I think it's design confirmed it.

AndrewLB1289d ago

I agree. Neither Xbone or PS4 are that good looking. Some conceptual renderings looked far superior to the end product. it's a shame too because my home theater receiver, a Harman Kardon AVR 3700 with it's upper half piano-black and lower half brushed black aluminum, is drop dead gorgeous.

3 days to have this sexy, sleek beast under my TV

C-H-E-F1289d ago

Under? No, these sexy slanted beast will be right beside my TV. Every King needs his queen (TV, hence being beside the PS4) and every King needs his mistress (Vita). Now the grumpy dad (PS3) will be relocated to the guest room lOl.

sigfredod1289d ago

Yep already have a whole reserved space for her, just for that beauty

shivvy241289d ago

already have a whole spot for my ps4, right next to my ps3

Agent_00_Revan1289d ago

Built a custom entertainment center in my basement 2 months ago, and made sure to have a nice extra space reserved just for my PS4.

Even though the entertainment center has been 'done', it won't be 'Complete' for 3 more days.

ThanatosDMC1289d ago

Pfft... i dont know what y'all would use your PS4 for but mine will be next to me on my bed. Y'all are weird.

Leviathan1289d ago

Y'all are fucking in need of some time outside the house if ya ask me.

Back-to-Back1289d ago

Someone has been watching to many occulus rift videos Mr Thanatos.

Soldierone1289d ago

Reminds me, I need to figure out where to put it. Maybe under my PS3 since I have no room elsewhere. It'd be on top if the PS3 wasn't curved at the top lol
