I was very glad they talked about the Specs and showed them specifically - so we wouldn't have to debate and figure them out later. Seems like we still are barely figuring out what the WiiU has under the plastic hood.
I've never thought that Sony's consoles were ever attractive. Sort of awkward asymmetrical boxes with odd curves tossed in like a kindergarten art project. I would say probably the PS2 slim was my favorite. But I buy I a console to play games. If it actually looks cool, then that is a bonus.
So for me, I didn't really care.
I would like to see how ones that touch pad on the controller. It just seemed awkwardly placed to me, and the thumb-sticks would get in the way.
