      Sexy. I'm looking forward to not hiding it in my entertainment center.

      I think it looks great; it really goes back to the design roots of the PS2.

      I might get shot for this but...does anyone else think the PS4 and xbox one don't look that different from each other? :/

        It looks almost the same but stylized. I like the slant in the PS4 better. Would have been cool, knowing they're non-upgradeable consoles and all, if Microsoft or Sony had adopted the multi-board approach like the Steam Box, and enclose it in a fancy case like Apple did the Mac Pro.

          I can't be the only one who thinks this! A multi-board console? Like a steam box? Well. More like a GameCube. That won't fit with your entertainment center. Fuck your entertainment center :(

        They definitely share design attributes. And I'm assuming you can lay the PS4 horizontally too.

        The focus is more home entertainment unit this season.

        No I think they absolutely look similar. Kinect like device, black box, controller.

      well at least the ps4 and xbox One won't clash next to each other. I might accidentally mistake one for the other, but they won't clash!

        Glad someone else was thinking this. I can't put my finger on it, but it's definitely not slanted for any practical purpose. I'm wondering what the back looks like.

        RetarDed.

          I think he means it's been remade into a flaky pastry. Retarted.

      now you can put a DVD on top of it without carefully balancing it.

        as opposed to the new Sony blu-ray players that have some weird pyramid on the top of them.

      Huh, does that earbud thing also have a mic? Would much prefer that standard smartphone thing to the over the ear or head band headset mic.

      Both designs are kinda just like a home theater appliance so that's fine. I care much more about what they do and don't do.

      I don't like the design at all, but I preordered anyways.

      Hey! It's the Xbox One...but slanted!

      Seriously though, it does look nicer that the Xbox One, I'd say.

        Ditto, XBO is like a VCR.

          Actually it reminds me of the Toshiba HD-XA1, the first HD-DVD player. Looks like the Xbox might soon suffer the same fate as HD-DVD.

        Where are you guys seeing the XBox One in this thing? If anything it looks more like a PS2 throwback.

      June 11, 2013 2:06 AM

      Quite similar to the xbox but i prefer it.

      I like the principles behind both, black, minimal, they both look like high amplifiers or something. I think the ps4 looks a bit classier though, there is something about the xbox proportions that look clumsy or over large. The ps4 seems quite petite in comparison.

      Pretty similar, slant just seems like it was done to make it different. I prefer the look of the Xbone but getting the PS4 first this time around still. I just want a console to sit on my shelf in the end.

      Xbox 1: It looks like a VCR. BORING!
      Ps4: It looks like a VCR. INNOVATIVE!


      They are both pretty boring looking to be honest. I give the slight edge in looks to the xbox.
