This Friday marks the North American launch of the PlayStation 4, meaning the next generation of gaming is just around the corner. What better way to hype up the anticipation with an official PS4 unboxing video, direct from Sony themselves?
Yes, usually these types of videos are usually aimed at a very niche market, but the production quality for this PS4 unboxing video is stellar. In what appears to be a room ripped straight out of 2001: A Space Odyssey’s Discovery 1 mixed in with a touch of Daft Punk vibes, a bright blue light emanates from the ceiling on top of a PS4 box.
Opening the box reveals the following available PlayStation 4 items: Network Voucher, Quick Start guide, one DualShock 4 controller, an HDMI cable, AC Power Cord, a complementary mono headset, USB cable and, the moment you’ve been waiting for, the 500 GB PlayStation 4 system. But who is our mysterious, glove-donned PS4 unboxing video protagonist? No other than Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, equipped with a simple message; “Greatness Awaits.”
It is short, to the point video packed with all necessary information you need. No dragging out how each individual item is kept in what order, but the contents drawn from the box. Now, if we can only get a live PS4 UI video! (One that doesn’t run on the PlayStation 4 dev kit)
With Sony executives Adam Boyes, Mark Cerny and Shuhei Yoshida in town for the PS4 All Access event, perhaps more fun videos like this one are up their sleeve this week.
