Written by: / / No Comments

Sony’s recently held PlayStation Meeting contained many revelations about the PS4 but the console’s design was not one of them, despite the platform holder revealing the DualShock 4 and upgraded PlayStation Eye during the event.

During a roundtable discussion held yesterday, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida apologised to gamers for not showing the console itself during the PS4 reveal. GameSpot reports that Yoshida admitted the final design of the PS4 is still being worked on and will be discussed at the next PS4-focused event, stating:

“We like to disclose things based on what we think we really want to communicate first. And next time we will talk about these things.”

During a separate discussion with CNBC, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America Jack Tretton said the company was more concerned with “what comes out of the box, not what it looks like.”

He followed this up with the quip:

“I can promise you that it will be plastic, it won’t be triangle shaped or round. You’ll see the box in due time.”
