    PS3 game cases change for 3rd time. Just slightly this time.

    The beginning


    First change when slim releases.


    Looks like they want to match the PS4?




    I think it is stupid to make the game cases look more like the PS4 copies.

    PS4 game case for reference.

    If someone is to stupid to notice the different blues, or the 3 vs a 4 than they deserve to buy the wrong game?
    And it isn't like the change is that drastic from the second generation case.

    In reality, I could only see this being an issue for parents who don't really know the difference. But even so, you just simply return/exchange it if it was the wrong console version...

    Unification makes sense.

    PS4, PS Vita and PS3 cases all look the same. It's kind of boring. :/

    I can't tell if you're calling me stupid or the grammatical errors just make it look that way

    Anyway when I used to work in hmv people were always confusing games and bringing them in to get changed, no stretch to the imagination to see that this won't help.

    I thought they changed the PSN to the SEN as well?

    It is not like all the games are jumbled up in one big pile, the different consoles usually have their own sections.

    As a person working in retail for over 10 years I can say this will confuse people. Mom, Dad, grandma are sometimes in a rush so they see the cover knowing what their son/daughter/etc has so they pick it up. Other than that it just seems unnecessary.

    .

    I think that's the whole point, without the boring part of course lol, it's to bring them all in line with each other!

    When I first read that they were doing this that was the first thing that came to mind....this can get confusing.

    Not a fan of the new case look, could confuse customers. Why couldn't the sleeve be red or black with the PS3 font on top?
