Not sure if I'm too keen of the design.. I prefer the looks of the Nintendo Revolution actually.. What I really like about these new consoles is the wireless controllers, now you can just pop the consoles behind glass and out of sight, those things are always gathering dust like crazy.

i think they all look much better, however in about 5 years they too will look dated and retro. Gaming has a funny kind of weird design ideal where consoles seem to move straight from New and Modern into a kind of Retro gaming category and skip the whole old junk phenomenon.

 

I think i like the design of the new consoles, however we still have to wait for the controller design of the revolution. Hopefully it won't be long before we get a glimpse and see their new controller looks like. I have my thoughts about what kind of technology it will include.

Yeah, I like it.

 

Simple, but creative/fresh.

Can't beleive people pay big bucks just for the looks (not saying nothin gis under the hood).

 

 

hehe, i wish someone would pay me big bucks to design it!!

 

Some people say it looks like a george foreman grill, or a fridge!!! :)

I like it. The design appears to be a refinement of previous versions: simpler, more elegant.

So dissapointed in the PS3 design.

I'm sure it will be a marketing succes!

But the design is just a mess and not much imaginative.

 

They adopt the logo of "Spider-Man 2" into

"Playstation 3" instead of making a new logo,

like they did with "PS2".

 

The old PS2 have details from older classic

Sony-products. The simplicity makes it timeless

and mysterious. The styling is typical Japanese and Sony.

 

The new PS3 has a more European look.

The disc-insert section is practical, but they forgot to design it!

It's just chopped off the front of the console.

 

Why does the controller look like a Boomerang?

They want to sell more PS3's in Australia?!?

 

Obviously Sony wants to save cost in the design

to compensate the expensive hardware inside.

Like the PS2, most money will goes to marketing and commercials.

 

*Sigh, why i become a product designer?

i think the design of it is just boring. I dont like the look of the controller as i've played with controlers like tha and find them uncomfortable, and i can see the silver (main marketed colour) looking completely out of place in anyone's home.

Hm.. the main gripes I have the controller is that is has such long handles. Of course I haven't seen the thing yet full scale so it's hard to comment on the ergonomics, but I'm kind of worried that these grips force you too much to hold the controller in a certain way.

I'm not too worried though, Sony controllers have been really good so far (well they've only had pretty much 1 controller so far.. the dual shock addition wasn't that big of a change in shape).

I agree - it looks cheap

The design looks ameture and boring.

 

As for the controller - no again - I know controller ergonomics very well and those long handles will be restrictive, they will cause a loss of agility.

 

The 360 controller, although it does not look good in pictures, looks much better in person, and very good ergonomically.
