The biggest absence at Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal this past February was the console itself. However, Sony will reveal the physical console in due time and in a recent interview lauded that it's 'another fantastic design.'

In a recent interview with Edge magazine, Sony Worldwide Studios’ Vice President Michael Denny was asked about PS4's form factor and if Sony decided on one yet. "I’m not sure it’s instructive for me to start trying to describe or talk about what I’ve seen or haven’t seen in terms of the actual look of the box. But yeah, you know it’s going to be another fantastic design and we can’t wait to reveal it," he explained.

According to Denny, the PS4 controller was more important to show off at the PS4 reveal event than the actual console. "I think it’s more relevant to what we were just talking about there, that the controller is a very important aspect of the physical design that influences the gameplay. So that’s why it’s more important for us to talk about the controller at that event because of course we wanted to talk about how we’d improved the DualShock 3 with tighter sticks, better triggers, cut-down latency and new features, with the touchpad, lightbar etcetera."
