    This Man Designed the PlayStation 4's "Box"



    This Man Designed The PlayStation 4 | Kotaku Australia

    Tetsu Sumii is the name, say "hi"

    Tetsu Sumii would in most circumstances be a man you’d never hear of. So it’s nice that Sony have given him a shout-out on the PlayStation Blog. Why? Because he designed the PlayStation 4.

    Not the guts, of course, but he is the main man responsible for its appearance. You know, the box that so annoyed everyone when it didn’t turn up to its own unveiling back in February.

    Saying that his original idea was “totally different” to the box we've got now, he adds that the driving force behind the PS4′s design was simplicity.

    “I just wanted to make a simple object for the living room”, he says. “Sometimes products are a little too exaggerated. It should be simple. That’s my thinking.”

    He also says that the machine’s sloping appearance and “valley” running through the middle are there so the PS4 looks good from “every angle” (something Sony touched on back in June).

    Lol I thought the thread title meant the box it comes in... not the part it is referring to.

    Dude built a box. Accidentally sat on it. Didn't have time to rebuild it before the pitch. Sony calls him a genius. Profit.

    It's good to know who created the design for the PS4, especially since I like the design. Let's see who comes up with the design for a PS5 and what it turns into.

    The current rumour is the PS5 won't be a device at all, it'll be a subscription service only - http://www.vg247.com/2013/10/08/play...ekkens-harada/

    Sony will house the games in a central online server warehouse where they can upgrade the hardware at will and we'll end up with little more than a small box and a controller, much like the Vita TV. http://www.kotaku.com.au/2013/09/che...he-ps-vita-tv/



    Sony has 5 or 6 years to get us hooked on the Gaikai concept and for most of the Western world to roll out fiber-optic based broadband networks. It's no longer a matter of if this will happen, but when. The game console may well go the way of the dinosaur and we could be looking at it's last physical iteration this generation.
