New Playstation Concept and Ideas
The purpose of this article is to inform you, the reader, about potential PlayStation 4 implementations and designs. Although this new system hasn’t even been announced yet, concepts and ideas can still be thrown around about what it could look like or do. First, let’s start with design ideas, what could the next system possibly look like on the exterior? I feel fairly certain that the system will remain a rectangular shape, although it may become a bit smaller than that of the PS3. I also feel fairly certain that Sony will decide to stick with the sleek black color, with the strong chance of throwing the silver trim back in, giving it a nice accent. As experienced in the past, not with Sony as far as I’m aware, there have been cooling problems with some consoles, I feel this will be taken highly into consideration and that there will be ample cooling and ventilation slits. As with both the PS3 and Xbox 360, I’m sure that the PS4 will be given USB slots, either in the front of the system or in the back. In the case that this new system still uses controllers, which I’m really hoping it will not, it will most likely also have micro USB slots for controller plug in.
As far as controller design goes, I think that after all of this motion detecting software has been fully learned, it would be amazing to harness it to the level we no longer need controllers. Think about it, ever since gaming was invented, we’ve had to rely on an input method that involved controllers or a handheld device. I think it would be completely possible in the near future to play games with our minds, via neural connectors. At the rate technology is advancing I wouldn’t be surprised to see something like this emerge in the next ten years or so. However, since this is not yet a perfected form of game play, I’ll go ahead and wager that the next controller will stick to the basic button layout, but the controller will most likely fit the contours of the hand a little better than the current design.
To summarize on what was discussed in this article, the PS4 hasn’t been released yet, but that won’t stop us from dreaming up possible ideas of what it will be like. Even tho it may still be a while before we get any real evidence that this console is even in development, we can only hope and wait for it in anticipation.
