PS4 hardware shots: VG247 gets up close and personal

Tuesday, 11th June 2013 21:11 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Pat is at E3, and today he was able to get a look at the lovely PS4 in person. He took pictures of what he saw. I imagine he was rather pleased to finally have a look at the machine. Shots are below.

If you are interested in the specs for the system, Brenna told you all about that here.

The PlayStation 4 will run you $399/£349/€399/AU$549 when it releases sometime close to the holidays.

    It really looks like two PS2 put together. Genius.

    Some amount of vents on the back. Wonder if it’s noisy.

    If I am going to buy a PS4, I am going to need a XB style 3rd party controller for it….I think…I really wanna get my hands on that thing. And want to know how they will use the screen.

    I think it says something in itself that it’s the PS4 that gets the personal VG247 staff shots first. :)

    @7: It’s a controller for ants. Luckily we are all ants as well.

    Please tell me the controller is more ergonomic and comfortable to hold?

    I hope there is an adapter allowing me to use Xbone or 360 controller on PS4!

    See now the Dualshock has always fit me well because I’m a man with tiny hands :P

    Controller sucks though, i’ve never liked the Playstation controllers. Really hoping for some nice third party ones.

    I think the controllers are gonna be way too big for me :(

    i always hated the ds controller too but i think the redesign looks quite good actually. looks like it has much better grip, it´s bigger, has extended grips. cannot wait to try it out. the ps4 is ugly as shit but somehow i kinda like the design anyway :)
    i am tempted to buy some sony wireless headphones i once had because those would match the ps3 and ps4 just perfectly. i am pretty happy with my sennheisers though…god i am such a nerd. what´s wrong with my brain?

    I can’t remember when was the last time I was hyped so much for a console. Thank you Sony for making me go nuts!

    I’ll be buying the console whenever Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy XV or Metal Gear Solid V hits retail, day 1 after so many years!

    Did I mention Kingdom-freaking-Hearts 3? :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    I do think the xbox controller is definitely prettier, but I play with the PS controller since 11, I can’t get used to any other.

    @18 Likewise from the look of that controller.

    I have an xbox controller for my PC, I have trouble getting my hands within reach of all the buttons comfortably. It’s just too big for my hands.

    Hey Sony, Sony, yeah Sony you, listen, I know you’ve done a good job of listening lately but here me now:

    Please make a bigger controller.

    Please switch the D-pad and left analogue stick.

    Yes, basically what I want is a 360 pad for the PS4, I’m not just a fanboy talking shit, I’m done with Macroshit but this really is the best design.

    Please make it so????????

    As someone who usually plays games late at night, often with the lights off, I really hope there’s a way to turn the light bar on the controller off. Otherwise that’s gonna reflect off my TV like crazy and be incredibly distracting.
