Don't worry, Sony Japan boss hasn't seen PS4 either


Although we did see the inner workings of the new PlayStation 4 console on Wednesday, we didn't actually see its final form factor, however don't worry, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Boss, Hiroshi Kawano, hasn't seen it either.

"If I'm being honest, I also haven't seen its final design. Even the controller we showed today, I saw the final design around yesterday or so," Kawano told 4Gamer.

In fact he didn't even see the final controller before it hit the stage on Wednesday.

"I've seen numerous prototypes from when it was still codenamed 'Jedai', and I heard that an onboard touch pad was in the final specs."

So there we go, no need to feel left out now.

Who felt left out? Outside of putting your disc in, what interaction to you have with the box? I for one, couldn't care less what it looks like. So long as it plays beautiful games and goes online, who cares?

I want it to atleast look nice. The original XBOX 360 looks ugly compared to the current one. Same with the new PS3 looking ugly compared to the slim.

True, but it didn't stop anyone from buying them did it? That's the point I was trying to make. Of all the features I want to see/Have seen, the shiny box is the least of my concerns. Assuming it doesn't come in Mr. Blobby Polkadots or Gay Pride Rainbow colour, and isn't the shape of the Elephant Man's genitals, i won't care what it looks like come release day

Him not seeing it was probably punishment for allowing the almost insulting non-announcement of a final fantasy announcement!

I'd trust designers and tech to know much more than the boss. He'll know what he needs/wants to know, that's for sure.

It makes no difference that Sony didn't show the box, because it doesn't change the gameplay experience one bit. Its just going to be a black box from the outside. If you want to take a look at the inside, just open up your PC and it'll look pretty much similar to the PS4.

alot of people would have wanted too see the design, so for them to keep it under wraps until E3 just keeps the anticipation and excitement going.

lol pretty funny story as you would assume he would be among the first to know about this sort of stuff.

Not bothered what it looks like, size is a factor for me though, would really prefer something small.

That's one thing I can guarantee you it will be chunky and it will be black

As long as its 100% officially confirmed it doesn't matter weather I've seen it or not I will be getting it regardless xD

As long as it's not stupidly oversized, it doesn't matter what it looks like. As long as it works the way it's supposed to and fits on my tv unit, that is all I care about for either of the new consoles :) Having one that looks nice is just a bonus.

I can imagine it being a similar size and shape to the original Xbox, just hope it doesn't weigh like a whale!
