Shuhei Yoshida Re-Confirms no Power Brick for PS4, Console Size is “Very Close to the 2nd Gen PS3, and PS4 is Slimmer” (Update)
Update: Shuhei also answered some Twitter questions by stating that his favorite genre is action-adventure, the PS4 stand will be sold separately, and, when asked if the DualShock 4 analog stick would “still get that layer of slime like the PS3′s did when you didn’t use them for a while?,” he replied with:
The material is different from DS3′s, so hopefully not.
Original Story: We’ll try to hide our jealousy a little bit right now, but the guys at IGN were able to get their hands on the PlayStation 4 console, showing it off in the latest episode of Up at Noon (which pales in comparison to Morning Wood).
Very early on in the video, Colin Moriarty talked a little bit about the power situation with the PS4, mentioning that he didn’t know if the system might include a power brick. Quick to remind everyone that it doesn’t have one, Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Worldwide Studios, said, “The power is inside, so no brick outside.” This response also fits right in line with the image of the PS4 box contents, which didn’t feature a power brick of any kind.
As for the approximate size of the PS4, Shuhei put it into PS3 terms by saying, “It’s very close to the 2nd gen PS3, and PS4 is slimmer.” Also, for the headphone jack on the DualShock 4, Shuhei confirmed that the headphone part of any pair of headphones would work, but for the mic, “it depends.”
