"Sony Didn't Reveal the PS4 Console!"

It seems that the gaming press has their knives out for Sony after the PS4 announcement. One of the big complaints is, "Sony didn't show us the PS4 console! Sure, they showed us what it can do, but we still don't know what the system itself looks like! Therefore, Sony didn't reveal the PS4, Microsoft is going to win the next generation automatically, and Sarah Palin is automatically the president." I'm really annoyed by this complaint for several reasons.

First of all, the part that you will be interacting with the most frequently is the controller. You're going to be handling it almost exclusively. That's the most important piece of equipment that you need to worry about. They showed that.

Next, you're going to want to know what the system can do in terms of power and graphics, as well as social aspects. They showed that.

If you want to know how the PS4 console itself is going to look, I have a world-exclusive description. Hold on to your butts, it's about to get real in here:
  • It will be black.
  • It will be a box that's about the same size as the PS3.
  • It will have a slot to put in a disc.
  • It will have a power plug.
  • It will have USB ports.
  • It will have an HDMI port.
  • It will have a clear plastic panel through which you can be mezmerized by a still-beating unicorn heart that beats faster the harder the system is working(unconfirmed).
There you go! Hope I didn't blow your minds too hard.

I understand that there's a little bit of annoyance. "They said they were going to reveal the PS4, and all they showed was the controller." I get that, I do. I'm curious to see how the console proper is going to look myself. That doesn't mean that it was a bad presentation, though, since they showed off all of the important stuff.
