PS4 / Orbis Concept Sketches Appear

Ugly.

After the giant leak/rumour list yesterday about the new PlayStation 4 – currently (and apparently) codenamed Orbis – come these rather intriguing concept sketches that have (naturally) been taken down.  Although not before being captured.

Picked up by Kotaku, they show a PlayStation Eye-like camera, oddly ugly people and a smartphone.  Designed by Coque Design, they were under the banner of “Illustrations & Sketches for new PlayStation Orbis features” before being pulled.

If it’s not the PS4, it’s almost certainly at least PlayStation related now.

    Its not a PS4, its a magic card that can rewind time and fixes mistakes that have been made.

    Finally!

    That could just be better integration of the PS3 and smartphone. Something it really needs.

    I like the idea of being able to watch the PSEye through an app of some kind and maybe even remote play type features as well.

      That’s what I’m thinking aswell, some form of remote play for certain PS3 aspects.

        Agreed. Looks like something AG2297 would draw.

    As I said yesterday, it looks more like some App which can link your phone (maybe Xperias) to PS3, maybe turning your music collection into a kind of SingStar experience or something.

    Cannot see a single thing related to a future console… And if on slimmest possible chance it is a future console they better replace the shitty EyeToy

    Cannot believe the bull in that much quoted & linked to Kotaku article yesterday related to Orbis. “Say Orbis quickly it sounds like four” Really, fuck off.

      “Say Orbis quickly it sounds like four”

      Erm, i agree cc. It doesn’t sound anything like four. At all.

      It’ll be the ‘Or’ that they are mistaking for ‘Four’. That being the case, a statement like ‘Four for tea’ must utterly blow their minds.

        Don’t invite them to dinner parties either, especially if they are lacking a fork and knife ;-)

    singstar can be controlled via a psp, you can cue songs to be played next etc. this just looks like an early concept pic for that (has been available for ages) i dont think this is for anything new……
