Totally agree, but Sony haven't made a good looking console since the PS One.  (alright there is the PS3 but it took them 3 attempts to get looking asthetically pleasing with the Super Slim).

Re: What the Playstation 4 looks like

Hmmm, cant see any obvious way to get in and change the Hard Drive. Hope its just hidden well. 

 

As for the look, I kinda like what they were goin for but the gap between the top and bottom layers seems to be a bit too wide in my opinion. Its not as sleek as it could be, the proportions are a little chubby. 

 

Its a lot better than that Xbox One though, thats just a standard rectangular box, and all the vents, urghh.

Re: What the Playstation 4 looks like

I think I might design and manufacture a stand for it that sets it at an upright angle. Like a sculpture.

Re: What the Playstation 4 looks like

Does anyone know the official dimensions? The couple that I've found only seem to be people guessing.

Re: What the Playstation 4 looks like

It looks like it was originally going to be a video player like the Xbone, but a Sony employee sneaked into MS's headquarters, saw the design and said "We need to cut it up a bit"

Re: What the Playstation 4 looks like

 

I don't think it's as bad as the xbone mainly because of the little details that stop it from being a full blown brick, but it isn't the greatest looking console. I do like what appears to be the ventalation ports at the back, maybe no more ylod this gen.

 

Judging by the image it is possibly a similar size to the PS3 fat but slimmer. (i can't remember how big a ps3 slim is so i can't compare it to that)

You can't save time only spend it.

I have a feeling that the PS4 will look much better in the flesh, and would compliment any modern AV setup. I think people are initially a bit shocked at the acute angles, but this is one design that I believe will grow on the consumer base.

The bone isn't ugly, but it is visually boring, and in line with it's previous incarnations, looks comparitively 'cheap'.
