So Bill Harris linked to some pictures of the new PS3.  Here is the link.

All I can say is I hope not.  It is far, far uglier to me than the 360.  It just looks cheap and silly.  I think the controller is terrible as well.

Very, very interesting find. Is it real though, or is it memorex? Only time will tell.

Ugh, Bill Harris strikes again.

These are mock-ups (ie fakes) built around a Sony Blu-Ray player I believe.

i wouldn't doubt that it is based off some other sony design...it does resemble the look of some of their current DVD players.

Don't know yet.  Sony is using the slogan "Welcome Chang3" in their E3 marketing so that might be an indication it will be called PS3.

Is it just me, or does the "Playstation 3" look exactly like the title logo for the two Spiderman movies?

Hide the children, do not look directly at the ugly:



The PSP was just so very good looking, they had to balance it out with some hideousness so the space/time continuum wouldn't rip itself apart.

Hopefully Logitech or another reputable third party will have a better controller at launch.  Please!

Would like to see a different angle on it though.

OK, I'll bite. What's wrong with it? Maybe it's really comfortable. The PS2 controller is the best one I've held. I'd bet they wouldn't put out anything half-baked on the market when the time comes.

People are bashing it because it looks silly, but that's not the only reason it's stupid.  It's the same layout as the dual shock controller!  Why is the d-pad taking up the left-thumb's must comfortable position instead of an analog stick?  The shoulder buttons look like the same old stupid pressure sensitive type, IMO the Dreamcast/Gamecube/Xbox analog shoulder triggers are hands down a better design.

Have we confirmed that it doesn't have triggers?  You can't tell from that shot.

No, not confirmed, hopefully there are some analog triggers on the underside.  Actually, that would make sense, the shoulder buttons you can see in that pic would be R1/L1, the analog triggers would be R2/L2. Here's hoping.

Well fuck.  That's about the worst controller design I've ever seen.  Hopefully PS2 controllers will be backwards-compatible with the PS3 like PS1 controllers were with the PS2.

It would take an adapter if so.  I don't think there are any oldstyle controller ports on it.  

I have hope it can be redesigned though.  MS was quick to redesign their original controller and unlike the rest of the system and specs, there is plenty of time for Sony to do a controller redesign after this horrendous reception.

Yeah, I'm ticked about the controller too. Talk about a horrid idea.

And check the main page - we're uploading shots as fast as we can over here.

EDIT: Official console shots, including some of the horrid controller:

I like the look of the PS3 much more than the Xbox 360 ... but the controller does look a little odd. However, I don't think you can really judge a controller until you hold it, until you play a mean gaming session with it and really know how it feels, and only time will tell in that regard.

That's true.  On the other hand, there's a year (or more) for people to bitch about how ugly it is.  Maybe Sony will change their mind.

The black version looks sleek. Much better than the XBox.

I agree with the whiners on that controller... That thing looks funny. Like something you would stick in a Monty Python stunt making fun of video games.
