did they ever sell those colored ones outside of japan? all i remember are the ugly game themed ones that were like slapping on a decal.
A game shop in The Netherlands where I live sells official Sony faceplates for €20 a pop. They've got Gold, Neon orange, Red, White, Silver and Aqua Blue.
ITT: We pretend that the PS4 was a good looking system?
It always was? My only complaint with it is the glossy part because it scratches by looking at it.

Wrong. They got the pictures directly from me who contacted the seller directly on Gumtree. And yes, I work at the same company.
That doesn't make it better when their source for the slim came from this thread specifically. just because they contacted the seller afterward and posted pics still means they should give credit to us for breaking the story.

Anyway, this unit looks sleek AF. Not that PS4 didn't already look sleek, but it looks positively bulky and 1950s boxy compared to the slim's modern sleekness.

Thread is huge so it would be hard to catch up on everything but this is absolutely real correct? Those photos are awfully damn convincing

People buy beautiful things for themselves. It has nothing to do with style points or bragging. I get enjoyment from looking at good design. When you can look at something and see the love that is behind the design, then you appreciate it that much more, compared to something that is just a rehash or simplification to save money. I don't see any love behind this.
This. Even if you don't personally like the design of, say, the Xbox One S, at a single glance it's pretty easy to tell that a lot of work and craft has gone into realising it, which evidently isn't exactly the case with this PS4 Revision.

Likewise, I'm not 100% happy with the direction Nintendo took the 3DS design in (it's a lot more fussy compared with the clean lines of the DSi XL), but it's hard not to appreciate something like this, and it's obvious they are employing higher quality materials and construction processes:

Here's some pics. Amazing device.

I'm actually amazed at the speed of this. Pictures of a new PS4 appear, and the same night some other dude has it sitting in their living room.
I know right? Usually you'd think there is going to be a week or two for crazy brewings about what this actually is. Now it's leaked, verified, and even had a comparison with the OG in one thread

Nothing is under wraps anymore

Alright.

It seems like a stupid design change, honestly.
Less plastic for less vertical space. Seems logical to me, helps cut down costs. The guts will be likely about the same cost as the OG, so they have to cut down in other places. Cutting down dimensions hits plastic costs and boxing/shipping costs. Also no Optical Out was for price cutting as well.

matte doesn't look as good in pictures out of the box but much better than a scratched up glossy plastic. you're done if you get even a tiny bit of dust on it and need to clean it off.

the matte plastic on the og ps4 does feel a bit cheap in itself though. then again...costs. this ain't a luxury car where you use soft touch plastics. heh

It HAS to have a UHD player right? I can't see them actually releasing a different model barely any smaller with no additional selling point.

He made a few in succession and I just quoted one of his. It's clear above I'm aiming the ire at Polygon, I even half defended IGN as they've just taken Polygons word.
Do you have multiple personalities? You were clearly calling out Kotaku. Own that shit.

I'm seeing unconfirmed rumors that the release is Sep 14 and Neo is being held until March.

EDIT: It was a tweet from some European gaming site that I've never heard of. It was getting retweeted by a bunch of people I follow. They just deleted it, so fake. I should've said twitter, my bad.

I don't understand. How did these sellers get their hands on them? Sony must have been planning a reveal sooner than their sept conference right?

You'll need a clear case, the finish on the new XL is extremely prone to peeling and it's all black underneath, a few sessions of sweaty palm MH or lunatic fire emeblem can ruin it really quickly

If they're gonna do that, they should get rid of the middle cut.
