I think the matte drive cover is a step down

Pretty sure it's to reduce production costs. Not needing to print the drive covers separately streamlines the production pipeline for sure.

I think that a cover that doesn't get fingertips marks on it it's a step up. They've done that first.

Abriael973d ago

@pedrof93: true that, personally I did liked the glossy finish, though.

pedrof93973d ago


Me too, I loved the shiny plastic ! But the problem is that it was impossible to keep that clean without scratching it ! That is frustrating ! :D

Looks that way because it's not shiny like its new or something but matte is better imo cause you don't have to deal with fingerprints and scratches. Also I like the matte look because it reminds of the PS2.

Sitdown973d ago

I agree, makes it look bland..... I like the gloss, gives or a little character. I don't transport my ps4, so fingerprints aren't an issue.

Reminds me of how the first PS3 was covered in shiny plastic but the 2nd was all matte.

i like better cause the glossy finish gets scratched up

Claudinho69972d ago

i never had to touch that part so why would i care about finger prints?

lategamer972d ago

Dust eventually collects, and cleaning the dust leads to scratches, which looks terrible. Happened to me and I used a microfiber cloth.

I agree with you but I am ok with the matte finish since the glossy one gets scratched very easily and leaves marks on it.

I want a matte silver cover. The limited edition batman ps4 looks great in silver.

I'm sure Wii Us are made with much cheaper parts now as well, no reason for it not to have a price cut now.

Visualift973d ago

I've always found glossy covers cheap and dirty looking on electronics. Looking forward to ordering one!

Reminds me of the PS2.
