PlayStation 4 hardware revealed

Stay on top of all our E3 2013 coverage here.

Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, unveiled the design of the PlayStation 4 at Sony’s pre-Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference today in Los Angeles.

The design is sleek. It sports hard edges that are similar to the popular PlayStation 2. Gone are the PlayStation 3’s humps and curves. Jet black remains the hardware’s color, as it has for every PlayStation system since the PS2. The PS4 can also stand vertically, something its competitor, the Xbox One, is not designed for.

Sony unveiled the PS4 in February, but it waited until today to finally show the design of the box.
