Variety is the spice of life
On February 20, Sony is making a big announcement. Many hope it is the first look at the design for the PlayStation 4, but we can't know for sure. If it is, though, we can't help but wonder: What will it look like? Lots of talented fans have taken it upon themselves to make an educated guess. Some look like total shots in the dark, where others have that classic Sony style.
We are all going to have to wait and see when Sony finally decides to peel back the curtain,(although a recent controller leak makes it seem more likely) but until then, take a look (or a laugh) at some of these PS4 mockups.
Throw another PS4 on the barbie
We bet this controller will go over great in Australia, until they start chucking them in the air expecting them to fly back to their hand.
The PS4 will go after the retro look of the Sega Saturn. Lets hope it comes bundled with a copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga.
Twice the fun
Think your controller is cool because it has a screen on it Wii U? BOOM! PS4 is going to have TWO screens. That's twice the awesome.
My Cellular, PS4ular Phone
When you're done playing your PS4 just put it in your pocket and go. This model makes calls and sends text too, we'd think. If we're lucky it will have a camera on the back for when your cat is doing something soooo cute and you have to share it with your friends, like totally ASAP.
Its a hockey puck! No! Its a PS4! No... wait, it IS a hockey puck. Hold on! This just in! its a... PS4.
Looks like Team PS4 is blasting off again...
You're going have a hard time holding on to this controller on account of the twin rocket engines designed to take you to space.
Where to begin...
When you're done with your multi-hour gaming session and you want to go play around outside in the sun, your PS4 also doubles as a Frisbee.
We dont get the point of this design.
Hot and Cold
If you take off the dumb ridges to heat or cool your hands, this one actually might work. Hell, we wouldn't be surprised if the PS4 controller looked exactly like this, sans random metal coils. Though we do love the idea of grabbing metal filaments with electricity coursing through them.
So the new PS4 is going to focus on being a router and a place we can get e-mail?! We cant WAIT!
The coaster of consoles
We cant tell what we're supposed to do with this one. Are we supposed to grab a carabiner and clip this system to our of keychain? It seems like it would work well as a coaster too.
Minority Report would be proud, but maybe you should check with Nintendo to see how the glove thing worked out for them.
We love the idea of projecting the game you are playing on the side of the unit, but that does look like a lot of surfaces to keep clean.
PS4 Alarm Clock
"If there is one thing that is guaranteed not to break all over the place, its glass! Thank god it wont accidentally lacerate your hands or face if it's broken. Hey, we should totally make most of our system out of this miracle material!"
Looks like an electrical fire has already started on the inside. Also, there are convenient prongs on the end for when we want to hook it up on our car's bike rack.
The dryer effect
If you totally forgot what game you just put in, fret not! This model comes with a window into the Blu-ray tray. We might just end up sitting and watching it spin like we do with our washer and dryer.
Hey, know how cats like to lightly brush up against things? One paw on this PS4 and you'd be out five-hundred and ninety-nine U.S. dollars.
Go Speed Racer, GO!
We can see this working well with a Speed Racer tie-in game, beyond that, we'd have to put on sunglasses to look at the thing.
Take the inside track
Take this wheel and steer yourself into the next generation of gaming. Everything comes with a great handle so you can throw it as far as you want when you rage quit out of Dark Souls 5.
Digital picture frame
We're sure the text on that tiny screen will be super easy to read from your couch across the room. If you dont want to look at the screen you can always put a picture of your family over it, or something.
Gotta catch them all
Its a ball. What could go wrong?
Apple would be proud of this simple design, and the spelling out of Four shows its has some hipster cred too.
If you think the outcry over the mushy d-pad from past controllers was loud, you better grab your ear muffs now. Also fighting game fans will just kill themselves (so we guess it isn't that bad).
This puppy is a bold turn from the curvy, smooth design that has dominated most consoles and phones. And... any popular electronics. Just make sure you add padding to the edges if there is an infant in the house.
Tron had better be a launch title or else this is gonna look pretty silly glowing up your living room.
Too Fast, too PS4
They see me glowin, they hatein, me and my PS4 be ridin glowy! Good news: Your new PS4 is all set to take on the competition in an illegal street race.
PS4 is getting into the wireless router market? Move over link-sys!
Swatch what my PS4 can do
We can see the commercial now, "The PS4; its the first console that you can wear around town!" Well, at least it won't be as heavy as wearing a PS3 around our necks.
Only time will tell
As you can see the designs are all over the board. It may end up looking nothing like any of them. Did any of these tickle your fancy? Let us know in the comments below if you saw one that you would like to have adorning your living room.
