Another win for the ps4 versus the Xbox that is basically a cable box with a LED X on it.

Ha!

We just got an XBox 360 two Christmases ago (so . . . 18 months ago?).

Before that, my last game console was . . . an NES I got (brand new) as a Christmas gift in ~1987.


So . . . I'm due for another new game console in year 2039. Woohooo!

Uh, what? That's not the official design...unless Sony's PR is as competent as their network security. No one knows what it's going to look like until E3. All that's been officially released is the controller and the Eye. I'm not sure there's ever been a console in the history of consoles that's ever looked anything like their unofficial mock-ups made by bored artists. If that's really it, then, ummm...it's okay, I guess. Never seen a console with intake vents before. Looks like a prop laptop from a bad sci-fi movie. I think someone just went frame by frame through the teaser video and cobbled together all of the details into a theoretical design.

All of my gear sits in a shelved cabinet behind frosted glass doors; I couldn't give two ****s what anything looks like. Better to look like a retro CD player than a George Foreman - Lean, Mean, Fat Grilling Machine if you're going to have it out in the open, though.

Except it's not a cable box at all. It just has an HDMI input to allow your current cable box to act as a pass-through device (and hopefully HTPC, phone, tablet, etc. for those without digital receivers.)

I'm just glad to see it looks like they improved airflow and has some sort of style for next gen vs a step back

Huh. Thats interesting. I've been through one xbox and it was my fault the optical drive died cause I always played scratched to hell games and never burned games onto the HD.

It's rumored the ps4 will be released cheaper than Xbox one. Xbox one that includes the mandatory Kinect camera will raise the cost of production and materials. E3 in less than 2 weeks, I doubt we will have a price but should get more info then.

From what I've heard Xbox one will be $399 and ps4 will be $349. But it's just bull**** rumors. The Xbox one costs more to make, I know the ps4 costs around $280 to manufacture and if they want to take a loss for the first year or so and sell them at $280 (highly unlikely) I think I'll get both. But I'll put the kinect camera in a soundproofed wood box with a flap cover

I did just get off the phone with ps support and they are releasing the console pictures on Monday and hopefully a release date which means hopefully we can preorder soon.

If those are close to real price points I'm content... Def getting both! Going for the 1tb ps4 though.
