A number of folks have expressed some dissatisfaction at not being able to picture the PS4 in their mind because Sony refused to reveal the console itself at their presentation on Wednesday night.
Mind you, if you're unhappy, spare a thought for Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's president - Hiroshi Kawano - too, because even he doesn't know what the final console will look like yet.
Kawano was questioned by 4Gamer after the presentation, and asked when Sony might be prepared to revel the console body itself. He responded by speculatively pointing ahead to E3, and said that there were a number of things yet to be revealed and announced, including the price too:
"[The console itself] could not be revealed today, I'm sorry," Kawano said [translated by us]. "There'll be a good opportunity to reveal it in the future, perhaps at E3 in June, so the message is really 'wait until June or so'. In addition to the body design, there are a lot of things, including the price, that are yet to be announced, and we have not decided anything on the timing yet."
He noted with a chuckle that he's yet to actually lay eyes on the final version of the PS4 himself.
“If I’m being honest, I also haven’t seen its final design. Even the controller we showed [on Wednesday], I saw the final design around yesterday or so.
“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.”
