PS4 console pieced together from teaser clip

Tuesday, 21st May 2013 12:20 GMT By Dave Cook

PlayStation 4 has yet to be revealed in its final physical form, but based on Sony’s teaser trailer yesterday, one Reddit user has piece together the close-ups to produce an artist’s rendition of what it might look like.

If you missed the clip, watch it here and keep your eyes peeled for the close-up flashes.

Using those flashes, Reddit user Albino-Zebra produced this piece of art:

Seem legit? What do you think of the proposed design? Of course, the actual rig will be unveiled at E3 2013, but we can speculate now can’t we? This is the internet after all.

Thanks MCV.

    I think when you consider the hinge like thing at the back and the funky placement of the weird ridge at the front, it’s safe to say this is completely ridiculous guesswork and the real thing will be nothing like that. It looks horrendous.

    Still hoping it will look like a pig.

    Well, if this is true, George Foreman will be pleased as punch to start receiving royalties again :)

    It does seem to have huge vents, though.

    I wonder if it has afterburners…

    I think that design is actually pretty damn cool :p it’s got a weird retro-futuristic vibe?!

    It wouldn’t surprise me if the vents were actually tiny and it was just an extreme close up.

    Looks like a Daft Punk album cover.

    It’s actually a tranformer, the blank top will lift up and then you can either turn it to a transformer or a laptop as a portable console.

    ALL consoles should transform into robots (…in disguise).

    I don’t actually care about the ‘look’ of the PS4, only if it will work well under normal conditions. Same for the Xbox, I only care about its specs and not how the physical machine actually looks.

    To me the console is a tool for enjoyment, I don’t care about ergonomics of the casing.

    I think those detail are not very important. All that’s important is that it’s quiet and reliable. Who cares what it’s shaped like?

    Why are people bitching about the design so much? The actual games and features on the system is what I’ll be looking at, not the damn box. If I can turn it on and play games on it, I really could care less what it looks like.

    I Hope it will not look like that. Yeah, what matters are the Games, thats true, but I have to put that Thing under my TV where I see it all the Time. So it should at least not look too ugly.

    that looks like the lamborgini veneno and egoista, a mixture of those two, i hope it is the final hardware, it looks great.

    I think it looks neat. Better then the Xone anyways.

    The final surprise…

    The top folds up to reveal a 1080p 22″ screen for laptop like functions!

    The vents are ludicrously big :’) It’s certainly more out there than the Xbox ONE anyhow. Which even looks like a freesat box.

    Wow! PS4 is going to look like a laptop from 1994!

    Here’s hoping this is way off the mark. Which I assure you it undoubtedly is.
