Sony’s PS4 Design Not Yet Finalized

Earlier this week Sony announced the PS4, their latest and (presumably) greatest console to date. They showed us several different things, from a redesigned controller featuring a touchpad and a share button, to an old man’s head rendered with 30,000 polygons. In fact, we saw everything we needed to know about the console, as far as the innards are concerned, but there was one thing missing: the actual console itself.

Sure, many folks may argue “Why do we need to see the black box it’ll be shipped in if we know the specs already?” While those people make a good point, it’s still a little weird to have a console release without the actual console being there. According to Kotaku, the reason for the lack of a console at the unveiling is simple: Sony has yet to finalize the actual look of the console.

Hiroshi Kawano, the President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, told the Japanese site 4Gamer that he had yet to see the final design of the console yet, and that he had only just seen the controller in the previous day. Jack Tretton of Sony Computer of America went on a bit further, and said that the PS4 was “still in development in terms of final specs and design.” If I had to guess, I’d say you can probably expect to see the PS4’s final design at E3 this year, along with price and maybe even a final release date.
