Our brothers from another mother over at T3 have had a stab at what they think the PS4 is going to look like, based on Sony's current design ethos. The question is, would you buy it if it looked like this?
I'm not so sure. Honestly, I think it's a tad dull. Yes, it fits in with Sony's current design ethos of understated black boxes -- you've only got to look at the company's current range of monolithic TVs and Blu-ray players -- but my money's on a slightly racer-looking box for the PS4.
For Sony, the PS4 is a landmark product. It is its stake in the ground of gaming, and I think it'll come packing a more outlandish design than that. Fair enough, make it sleek and cool-looking, but not a generic box that could be something, anything else. Mind you, it'd fit in better with the rest of my home cinema set up, so I wouldn't be too sad if it really did turn out looking like that. [T3]
