Sony finally unveiled the physical PlayStation 4 console last night at it’s E3 press conference. We’ve known what the controller looks like for months now but there has been much speculation as to how console will look.

Now we know what it looks like, let’s have in-depth look at the PlayStation 4.

Here’s the whole package. Like the Xbox One and the Kinect, the PlayStation 4 will come packaged with a PlayStation Move which will speak to the controller via the lightbar on the front of the controller but we’ll get to the controller a bit later.

Like the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3, the PS4 is capable of standing up vertically but with the help of a stand. This is great if you want to declutter your TV area.

The front adequately hides the disk drive and the twin USB ports of the console which is pretty nice. Unlike the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 is more of a less neutral shape with the slanted look of the console. Both console have done a good job keeping it nice and simple. The biggest improvement here is we don’t have another first edition PlayStation 3 gloss finish case that’s a fingerprint magnet. At least, three quarters of the console doesn’t have that anyway.

As we can see, the PlayStation 4 is going to be sporting two handy USB ports on the stage right front of the console just like the PlayStation 3. To the stage left of the console is the disk drive which admittedly is quite hard to see from this angle but it can just about be seen in the image above. The PS4 also seems to have two LED strips that run down the console that glow blue when it’s switched on.

The back of the console is quite a different story to that of the front. We can see all the necessary ports such as HDMI, the power plug, ethernet etc. What’s obvious is that Sony is accommodating for the console getting quite hot. Given the smaller size of the PS4 and just how powerful it is, it’s bound to overheat at times so the rear of the console sports a healthy amount of vents to keep the PS4 nice and cool.

Here’s another ariel view of the console showing more of the Italicised look of the PlayStation 4. Yes, it looks like Italics.

Here’s the view from the side showing the various logos for the features of the PS4 such as HDMI and Blu-Ray.

This picture gives us a basic understanding of how the PlayStation Move will work with the DualShock 4. There are no more weird nunchuck controllers with balloons on top. Instead, the PlayStation Move speaks to the lightbar on the front of the controller (see below).

Here’s a nice view of the bottom of the controller with the new lightbar and the new handgrips which give the player more friction between your hand and the controller so you have a better hold on the device.

Here’s the first image of the PS4 with its new headphone jack for when you want to play quietly. It’s unclear whether that singular headphone is included with the PS4 but hey, at least it’s there. We also have a nice new look at the external speaker on the top of the controller which we’ve seen before.

So there you have it. A brand new, fresh look at Sony’s latest home console. Do you love it? Or do you hate it? Let us know in the comments below and if you want an in depth look at the DualShock 4, you only need to click here.
