Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia is preparing nine different color variations of PlayStation 4 hardware that will only be available via the Sony Store.
They look cool!
Yeah nice set of HDD bay colors ...not sure about the Light Brown one though. Horribly garish, but I guess someone will like it /
It's gold, not light brown.
The controllers that they announced are AMAZING!
That purple/black one looks slick, but overall they all look really good.
Always bet on Sony to blatantly steal off Nintendo. This being another example. Brazen.
So Nintendo invented different colours now? You Nintendo fans are priceless. #NintendoInventedEverything
Far, far from it. But interchangeable faceplates, I think you could even admit Nintendo has (just recently) popularised it. #DenyNintendoInventedAnything Now, back to those great Move games...
But the plates have been available even before the New 3DS was released. So how are Sony copying?!
Sorry, these interchangeable faceplates have been available for the PS4 (or 3) before Nintendo introduced them with the New 3DS? Proof please...
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/... Released in Japan on October 2014 First plates for PS4 HDD bay released last year before they released the New 3DS in Japan. http://www.ign.com/boards/t... https://mobile.twitter.com/... 163162898432 http://m.play-asia.com/sear... http://m.play-asia.com/sear... New plates with designs started releasing in Japan in September and MGS released March. 3DS only launched there new plates and 3DS October after PS4 already had plates available. So you were saying?!!
Who are you trying to kid, yourself? Nintendo popularised and were the first to bring the ease and notion of interchangeable faceplates to the masses. That Sony had some available somewhere on a Japanese website does not warrant doing it first. It's no big deal, simply (like PS Move) I wish Sony (and Microsoft) would less blatantly copy Nintendo's efforts.
So just because Nintendo most recently did it, anybody else who does so is copying them? There's ridiculous, and then there's "are you freaking kidding me?"
Yes, that's the definition of copying. It's hardly a crime, but then its not exactly innovative or original at the same time.
http://www.amazon.com/Gears... http://www.amazon.com/s/ref... Who's trying to kid who? I gave dates and faceplates are not new. Just look at the faceplate for the 360 for Final Fantasy 13, it was released in 2010! PS4 had replaceable plates even before the New 3DS is also fact. They've been releasing special bundles in Japan for awhile. They had LBP3 , MGS ground zeroes (again before new 3DS was released even), Bloodborne, FF type 0, Disgaea 5, Resident Evil, Sengoku Basara, Hyperneptunia plates for awhile now. The cover is also the HDD cover bay where you replace the PS4 Hard drive and has ALwAYS been removeable because that's what it's function was and is. So unless your suggesting Nintendo had replaceable faceplates back in 2010 like the 360 ones I own then I fail to see how MS and Sony copied Nintendo?! Please take your idiotic notion that Nintendo is the one being copied and maybe get some facts straight. Also it's not just some site, it was 1 of many sites. They have been available in Japan at many gaming stores and on Amazon.co.jp unless you're going to suggest 1 of the 5 biggest internest companies and stores in the world is some small thing? Also Sony has been available to North America as well through Sony online store. https://www.playstation.com... Sony a small nobody online store as well? Your comments aren't even factually based. Purely idiotic. I sold many of those faceplates back in 2010 for the 360 at EB games/ Gamestop. We had them quite easily available. Also Sony is just following their phone lines with battery backplates replacements as inspiration. Unless your going to suggest Nintendo even beat Sony's swapable plates for their cell phones YEARS before Nintendo is also copying?! http://www.amazon.com/s/ref... Again well before Nintendo had them Sony products have had them. So again who's copying who?! LOL.
"Who are you trying to kid, yourself? Nintendo popularised and were the first to bring the ease and notion of interchangeable faceplates to the masses. " Actually again NO, get your facts straight. The market that popularised mobile and handheld devices with interchangeable plates has and will always will be cell phones. Sony's phones have had custom and colour plates on their phones well before 2010 with their Xperia and Ericson phones. So yeah unless your suggesting Nintendo handhelds somehow beat out cell phones in popularity your hilarious idiotic notion doesn't make ANY sense. Sony is only moving from their OWN mobile devices to their own system in the PS4. Even the PS3 slim years ago had some snap plates. Final fantasy faceplate released 2012. http://www.amazon.com/PlayS... So again take your idiotic factless notion elsewhere. Yeah Sony's cellphones only beat your nintendo handheld by 6-7 years. Cell phone popularity destroys Nintendo handheld popularity. So yeah Nintendo copied the idea from Cell phones. Customizing mobiles has been in Japanese culture for years so it's not surprising Nintendo is jumping in the market as well.
Silver and Gold controllers looked banging.
