With less than a month to Sony’s big E3 press conference on June 10th (6:00pm Pacific Time) we get to see a glimpse of the mysterious console. Here's what we think all the sleek details of the console actually are.
A rounded console... Orbis... I'm not sure about this.
Yeah agreed, no clue how the author thinks this will be rounded when every edge we see in that is straight line and gives ZERO hint at an "Orbis" shape. (not even sure what an "orbis" shape is...). I think its pretty clear...it will be flat, sleek and designed to fit in a cabinet with other devices if needed.
7th image, what do you think that is if not part of the console? I'm not trying to be an ass here, just curious :)
@ Makasu : It looks like a fan grill of some sort but that doesnt mean the console will be round. It might look round because of the way the lighting is around it
@Makasu, I take that as a straight up circular fan grill for the back of the console...similar to what my old cable box had on it. A fan sat right behind it for maximum effect. I am 100% sure this console is going to be a flat rectangular box that will fit into a cabinet with other components perfectly well. In fact if you look at all those vents they all seem to be positioned on the sides of the device...meaning this can be stacked and not cause heat to come down on another component as easily as the original PS3 did. edit: last little clue I am seeing as to the final look. If you look at the Eye Camera you can see it has unique angles to its appearance. I would expect the PS4 to be having some similar angles and edges to it, that will create a bit of product uniformity out of the box.
In response to your second reply: Interesting! This may very well be, but when I look at that image it has a white background, the only way I see it, it must be the edge of the console, because we know it's not the DS4 or the PS4 camera. I'm thinking the front is flat and sleek but the two back corners are rounded like that, not sure why they would design it like that though. If it is like you think maybe this thing is perturbing a bit out from the console?
@ makasu: it's clearly a ventilation grill on the back of the unit. the image you used for the article clearly indicates that the PS4 is looking pretty angular, not rounded.
I kinda wis it was grey or silver--Sony has been teasing ps2 and PS3 at their first reveals in white, silver, and grey (remember the white PSX box?). Then they always just settle for black. I want silver or grey damnit lol. I want to be reminded of the first playstation--the one that started it all (it was grey too).
An interesting design, looks like a PC, Ps4 has amazing and futuristic shapes. Maybe can be an upgradeable device, because has a Pc's architecture. :)
Hehe interesting, I don't think it will though, that would put it in the PC category which is something Sony absolutely wouldn't want.
Ps4 has AMAZING and FUTURISTIC shapes. You are amazed right now? You sitting there at your desk stunned and thinking "oh wow! Oh my goodness, those shapes were AMAZINGLY from the future!!" -___- honestly. Urg.
LOl! For your stupid avatar .....You are a Nintendo troll!...What are you doing here?
Looks like it is designed to have a wide front and having the disk insert in the side. basically imagine your phat PS3 facing the side so you would be staring at the logo instead of the USB ports and disk slot. I get the feeling the PS4 maybe quite small, something similar to the size of a DC.
i think its going to look f##ked up,i cant wait, and what about the blue led running along the console that would be nice, would be cool if the blue light changed red as you take damage,all synced in with the DS4 NICE LOL
I'm about ready to explode if I don't see some Playstation 4 soon. Damn you SONY!
The way i see it is one end will have a widely rounded edge(full half circle on one side of the console) and on the side of that will be the circular vent (facing topside when standing the console up) then on the opposing side of the rounded edge will be the more angular pointed edge where the business end will be(place for inserting discs, etc)
i need a ps4 in my life already
I cant really make out that much but i do see some edges. was the grey circle the power button? i'm not good at this. Anyways on June 10th it will be revealed. that's 3 weeks.
the most beautiful pictures ever taken
OOO MAAH GOD, I am very excited about the ps4 , nearly have $500 on it so far at eb games.
You think it's going to have upgradable parts..?
besides a hard drive slot for HDD upgrades, no
