It's been almost seven years since Sony dropped the Playstation 3. The wait ends this year and info has been slowly seeping out about the console, but on Monday, Sony finally gave gamers their first peek at the PS4 console's exterior at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Like the Xbox One it's a pretty unassuming looking console. Gone are the dramatic swoops and curves of the PS3, and so are just about any obvious buttons. The two halves of the PS4 are slightly offset and angled to create a slightly agressive profile when viewed from the right angle, but mostly it seems designed not to draw attention to itself -- pretty much the exact opposite of the last generation of gaming platforms.
