 is it really that big? :|

I meant the PS4 looks like the monolith in appearance, not size.

Seeing it like that reminds me so much of the old ps2 style when you would stand it up.

 

I really think the ps4 design takes some cues from the ps2.  Maybe its an homage to the golden days of console gaming. 

 

I like the rather muted designs of both consoles though.  None of this curved stuff.  If only they both had gone with a completely matte finish, I would be satisfied.  Regardless, I like a console with more straight edges and can basically disappear into your home theater.

Would like to see it next to an original PS2 or PS3 super slim. Any pics of that floating around?

It's so thin because it doesn't support DLNA and MP3.

That's quite some difference!

I still have a phat PS3 - and whilst I cannot fault it, it is rather big/ugly.

The more I think about the rounded ps3 designs, the more I dislike them compared to the ps4.

 

straight edges for the win!

Exterior wise the PS4 has more in common with the PS2 than the PS3. The PS4 is a beautiful console. Hopefully it's insides are reliable and durable. My PS2 still works to this day.

Same here. It's probably one of the worst consoles for reliability in history, maybe only 2nd to the Jaguar but I seemed to have got lucky with my launch PS2 and 3 which both still work. Although both are very noisy :/

I was an unlucky ps2 user. I lost a few due to failed disc drives. My ps3 is fine, of course I waited for a slim to get one, so its quieter than the launch ones.

Would prefer it a little smaller, but I prefer the appearance of the "phat" PS3 to both of the slim designs.

Prefer the look of the PS4 to all the PS3s though. Looks neater and more modern.

On the back of console size, what actually surprised me most was the controllers

PS3 controller was the dwarf vs the 360. Goes to show they really did focus on ergonomics this time around.
