PSXE Poll Update: PS4 Aesthetics Are "Somewhat Important"

Aesthetic design is a very subjective thing. However, we don't know what the PlayStation 4 will look like just yet, so we wanted to know: Do you even care?

Well, according to our latest poll results, the majority of participants said it matters "somewhat" and "I like it nice!" The rest of the participants were spread pretty evenly across the other three choices.

The design of a video game console doesn't matter much to me, but I can see why it would be important to others. After all, it's something that has to grace an entertainment center for more than a few years, right? Console designs change over time, though; remember what the original PlayStation looked like? Then compare that to the later PSOne Mini, which was a lot smaller and sleeker. Personally, I really like the PS3 design, which I find simple yet sleek.

This week, we want to know if you think Microsoft will impress you in May. You probably already know that the new Xbox will be unveiled on May 21, right? So we're all gamers around here; are you excited to see the announcement? And do you expect Microsoft to reveal a machine you'll want? If you plan on being a multi-console owner in the new generation, will one of your selected systems be the Xbox 720 (or whatever they end up calling it)?

lol, I think this poll can only go one way. But yeah I'm not expecting much. Actually I'm expecting the reveal to be better commercially crafted with lots of propaganda that will rope people in but substantively it will overpromise and underdeliver much like Kinect.

I want to see what they've got. Who knows? They might have something great to show. The next Xbox could be the ultimate entertainment console, and I want it to be.

They don't really have any exclusives if you count the PC and unlike Sony, I don't think they'll show us any new exclusive IPs either. Also, it's been said over and over again, even if it's just rumor, that it's going to be forced online. These two reasons alone make it non-appealing for me as a gamer.

Now if we take into account entertainment option, it could probably be a good device, but I don't expect anything significant that the PS4 won't have or support. I'm looking for a device focused on games, not social features, so it's only logical that I'm not expecting anything amazing.

I will however watch the conference with an open mind. It's only fair.

i dident buy the galaxy S4 because it looks exactly like the S3, and it looks like a dummy phone!
not how you want to describe something you just spent 5,6,7,8,900 + bucks on!
its THE best phone on the market both hardware and software wise, it wipes the floor with the xperia Z and HTC one, and the iphone is miles behind!
but whats the point, who cares, when it looks so drab and cheap?
the S4 is a ferrari in the body of a vw beetle.
whats the point?

as for the poll, seriously?
you put that up on a PS only website?
might as well put that up on apples website!
or but up a poll asking about the new ford GT on holdens website!

If I were MS I would sideswipe the industry and competitors with 5-10 brand new AAA IP! Something like that would definitely make waves and would definitely WAKE up the industry. It would probably blind those who feel that MS has lost its way in Gaming. A move like that would ensure that both Sony and MS continue to innovate. But alas... we must wait till May 21st to truly know if MS has given up on its true gaming fans.

I couldn't care less what the PS4 looks like, I'll still buy it anyway.

I know it will be aesthetically pleasing, even if it will likely only come in black at first, but even if it was hot pink with purple racing stripes down the side, I'd still buy it.

I'd actually buy it in pink just to prove a point to Sony that Japan isn't the only country that likes alternate colors for consoles.

What do you think about The Last Of Us: Remastered?
Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
