PS4 gets official and unofficial unboxing videos

Monday, 11th November 2013 02:04 GMT By Brenna Hillier

PlayStation 4 now has an official unboxing video, following the early release of a fan effort over the weekend.

The official unboxing video shows off what’s included in the North American box, namely: the console itself, with a 500GB drive; a network voucher; a quick start guide; a DuckShock 4; an HDMI cable; a power cord; a USB charging cable; and a mono headset.

Below the official video is one put together by YouTube regular boogie2988 in his Francis incarnation, which while surprisingly early seems to have official sanction, as it was tweeted out by SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida.

The PS4 launches on November 15 in North America and on November 29 in Europe and beyond.

Thanks, Gematsu, GameInformer.

    God, what a gross, fat bastard he is. I wonder if he’s seen his own penis in years.

    Anyway, the PS4 controller feels too heavy for me. I’m sure whenever I pick up the system, which will probably be in 2015, I’ll get used to it, but for now, it is uncomfortable to hold.

    Um, go away? That’s his character… to parody the douche, self-entitled, guys who play online games. It’s called comedy with references to video game culture.

    Then again, he got a PS4 before you (and most other people)… so he’s just a little more important than you. ;)

    @1, I’d imagine a few small games may support that but I doubt that with the majority.

    @Clupula I think he’s seen it and most importantly used it, the dude just got married you know.

    I can’t watch that guy when he’s in character, which is a shame, because I like to listen to him when he isn’t.

    “The PS4 launches on November 15 in North America and on November 29 in Europe and beyond.”

    Something occurred to me. If Dualshock 3 is Sixaxis, is Dualshock 4 Octoaxis?

    @3 – Oh no, he has something I don’t plan on getting until there’s an abundance of games for it before I do!

    However will I deal? I’ll be missing out on on all those games that aren’t out yet, so I couldn’t play them anyway. The horror!

    @7 – You can use it without seeing it. Larger people have sex all the time. I didn’t ask if he was using it. I asked if he could see it.

    Love that commercial. Even though I’m probably the only one who thinks so, it would be great to get a pair of unboxing gloves with each ps4.

    A great video of PS4 UI and ability to switch from game to web browser (5mins in)

    @2 Not only has he recently gotten married, he’s actually incredibly articulate and well spoken when he turns the act off. The whole thing is played for laughs.

    He’s also fully aware that he’s chronically obese. Excuse him for being human and not living a perfect life.

    @13 Initial loading of tiles some awfully sluggish. That’s one thing I’ve always disliked about the PS3 interface, and it seems awfully lazy that they haven’t worked that out for this hardware.

    Transitions seem very smooth though, and that whole interface feels a damn sight cleaner and more intuitive than the Xbox One’s.

    Not wild about them loading times though (of the tiles under the game).
    Goddamn the popping back into Knack was instant.

    I still dont understand why they let us in Europe suffer, and we have to wait 2 weeks more. Especially since PlayStation won the console war in Europe and has the most loyal fans here, this is just stupid.

    Well, it’s a shame he’s already married then, since you all love him so much.

    Well, maybe you’ll all get lucky and he’ll become a polygamist.

    May well be to manage the server load on day one.

    @16 Consider 2 weeks a blessing. 10 years ago, you’d have to wait half a year to get new hardware in your hands.

    @17 Or maybe we simply just don’t feel the need to mock and insult people based on how they look.

    @2 You need a beating and some soap in your filthy mouth. If it was up to me you would be banned for writing crap like that.

    Learn some manners and try again.

    @21 – Says the guy saying I need to have physical violence inflicted upon me. If anything, THAT is the type of thing that should get a person banned.

    Learn some manners and try again.

    I think it’s an awesome gesture for Sony to send a PS4 early to Boogie/Francis, with the sanction of Shuhei Yoshida himself. It really is…

    There was something kind of creepy about the official unboxing.

    Official Daft Punk set/tribute?
    I saw the daft punk one pretty nifty.

    @Clupula – Boogie (The guy who does Francis) Is a pretty cool guy, and if you take the time to watch his videos, you would probably like him. Everyone has issues, I would worry about the mote in your own eye before calling out others.
