  1. Sony has released a teaser video for the upcoming PlayStation 4 on the eve of Microsoft’s reveal for the next generation Xbox. The clip, less than a minute in length, opens with an out-of-focus shot of what we presume is...

    "The fact that Sony didn?t actually show what the PS4 will look like during the unveiling was a common complaint among gamers and critics."

    Can somebody explain to me how this is relevant to gaming?

    I like how everything Is a secret. How about if we make it secret if we will buy it or not. These companies are getting stupid. All they do is build up hype and then fail to live up to what they try to accomplish

    The hardware is used to play games. Criticism from "gamers and critics" that Sony didn't reveal the aesthetics of the system seems to me to miss the point of the event and make noise about an utterly trivial point. I don't recall anyone ever making a buy decision based on how a console would fit into their home decore.

    The year is 2013. Large flat-screen TV's with blueray players and home theatre systems abound. Why do you think the white xbox 360 was retired?
     
  12. It has little to do with how it really looks. Gamers want to see the console to know it is done. Since we didn't see the console we can just assume that the videos shown where from a dev pc.

    For gaming it isnt, but I for instance am waiting years for a console (or some version of it) which is an plain old brick so I can put it on my hifi-rack along other stuff. My fat PS3 destroyed the housing of my satellite receiver because of its damn ugly form and uneven weight distribution. I am seriously tired of some stupid designs with 10yr old kids in mind.

    So your anger really has nothing to do with the gaming system design. One thing I have learned in life, kids are just as capable of learning as adults (possibly even more so). You could probably guess where my next sentence would have gone.

    Kids surely can learn stuff but their reasoning is on par with of that an piece of bread (we all were at this point) and the marketing department at "SomeBigCompany & Co." is making sure their new product is "so much cooler" than that of the competition... and thats what we (or at least I myself) do not need.
