PSXE Poll Update: Most Expected The PS4 To Be Quite Pretty

The long awaited unveiling happened this past week, but it was overshadowed by a lot of other important announcements.

Still, now we know what the PlayStation 4 will look like when it lands on store shelves later this year. In our recent poll, we wanted to know if you anticipated a pleasing design, and the vast majority of readers said they had indeed anticipated slick, awesome style.

We're not sure if that's the best description of Sony's new console, but at least it's a little more aesthetically pleasing than the Xbox One (it is in my eyes, anyway). Me, I'm hoping Sony will finally realize that gamers in countries outside of Japan like colors. They always have great available hardware colors in Japan; here, we're lucky if we see white in addition to black. Damnit, how's about giving us something unique? Let us jazz up our living rooms a little! Everything is black these days and in all honesty, it's gettin' boring.

So now that the PS4 has been formally revealed in all its glory, have you already pre-ordered it? Or are you willing to wait a little before you decide? Then again, maybe you have no intention of getting it this year, and you're willing to hold off until 2014. Let us know.

It sorts of reminds me of an early 80's vintage family computer but I'll take that over something that looks like a VCR. Not that it matters; I'll be too busy playing games on the thing to care much about what it looks like!

I have mine pre-ordered, I hope I will get mine in this first shipment. I would like a color option other than black. I know there was white, red and wasn't there a blue PS3? Maybe later in the PS4's life they will start releasing more color options.

I pre-ordered with Amazon and should have it paid off in a few weeks. As soon as they give us a release date I'll have a better idea of what games will be available.

I just pre-ordered the KZ:Shadowfall bundle from amazon. Ima just let them take the payment when it ships, I seen no incentive to pay it off early. Im quite curious when the PS4 will release. This bundle says release day delivery but says it will be released on Dec. 31, 2013. I wonder if thats just a held date because they don't know, or if thats when they expect the second, third, or even fourth and so on batches to come in, because they are sold out of pre-orders for the premium PS4, so I cant imagine this ships with that batch. I dont know what the date was on the premium PS4 version was for pre-order so I have nothing to go off of.

Every retailer is different too, Best Buy says Nov. 31, while Gamestop doesnt even give a date.

I also plan on getting BF4, CoD, and AC4 for sure and possibly Drive Club and Watch dogs within the holiday season for it. That should keep me busy for awhile.

Yeah I don't understand why you would pay it until they ship it.

Amazon has Battlefield 4 for the PS4 listed with an October 29 release date. I don't know if that's any indication of the PS4's launch or not.

I want the PS4, and I'm not changing my mind about it, so I might as well pay it off early and focus on buying games and a second controller when it releases.

Tes-

I think thats because BF4 has a release date of that same date. And KZ and the PS4 are still unknowns. My guess is they are just placeholder dates for now. I wouldnt put money on the PS4 releasing alongside BF4 at this point. My guess is closer to November/December than October/November.

I guess what Im curious about is are these bundles truly release day bundles as they day or are they just as they come in type dates after the initial Premium Pre-orders have gone out. Because those are no longer available.

When I ordered the launch edition PS4, there weren't any bundles available. The bundles release at the same time. The standard edition doesn't have a guanteed delivery day.

It looks like a futuristic VCR to me, like maybe a VCR from a dystopian Robocop Detroit.

No point in pre-ordering now since you won't get it right away anyway.

Try amazon. They have bundles available for release day delivery. Another reader turned me on to it. I just am not sure if these bundles are set aside from the premiums that are sold out, or if they are release day delivery as they come in type a deal. Because the date is still unknown it is hard to determine.

I'm fine with this design. I know I'm gonna get some disagreement from saying this, but I think THIS is what the PS3 probably should've looked like. The original PS3 is closer to what the PS4 should've looked like (future-ish look, full on gloss). The PS4 also looks somewhat like the PS2, so it would've looked like a more natural progression if that was the PS3's design. But that's just my opinion.

I like it. It's certainly out of the rectangular crowd you see from the Wii/Wii U and especially Xbox One. I just hope the crevice won't make disc loading and usb inputting a hassle.

What's big for me is that it is around the same size as the super slim. That's amazing for me.

one thing that needs to be condemned to the depths of davy jones locker, and kept there till the end of time.
the rule that everything has to be designed with rulers, and have minimum two tones on it.
hate the design, far too boxy and whats with the matte plastic?
do you want your next gen console to look premium and futuristic, or cheap and a relic from the past?
i had to piss myself laughing when i went to pick up the last of us yesterday, a customer was whinging at how ugly the ps4 was and his defense was it looks like a ps2.
right, so a console that releases 2 generations after looks the same.
and thats a GOOD thing?
right.
same goes for that two tone finish, not only does it just not sit right having one bit nice and shinny and the rest so dull, makes it look really cheap too.
if you want something to stand out let it stand out, if you want it to be discrete let it be discrete.
you cant have both!

preordered mine the morning it was available from Gamestop. I've been putting away some money each paycheck for it - continuing at my current rate, I'll have it paid off in Oct/Nov which is most likely (hopefully?) when it will be releasing.

I like the design - reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright's style

already a Plus member, so getting Drive Club lite at launch - plus BF4. with those, and GT6 and GTAV on the PS3, I'll be a busy gamer this holiday season!

The blaxk PS4 isn't bad, but I do agree that it looks like the Ps2-2.

That said, there's a mock up of a white PS4 that is BEAUTIFUL. I would pick this version up over the black in a heartbeat:

Got that from the following thread on neogaf. They have other colours, but the white is the best one.

Much sexier, but that IronMan red one would be mine. Day 1, no questions or waiting.

The white looks better because it doesn't show that sh*tty clipping path.
