[sc:hardware-category ]Sony recently announced their latest redesign of the PS3 but my pet peeve with games consoles is their form factor.
First off, it’s a game console. It’s designed to work in your home entertainment center but it’s form factor makes that problematic. Curved surfaces look cool, but makes it so you have to dedicate an entire shelf to them. Most other home entertainment electronics conform to a standard size and shape (some manufactures’ don’t of course but there are lots of options in things like DVD players and if you don’t like the size/shape of one you simply buy one that you do).
Game consoles don’t have any choice, they are ALL at odd angles and designs. Many people have 2 or 3 of the major consoles, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to stack them all on to of each other, looking nice and clean?
No suck luck.
Perhaps I should start a kickstarter to build replacement cases for the PS3…
