I mean all it does is sit there, take disks in and puts them back out.
Looks matter. The slim PS3 looks so much better sitting next to my tv than the first model did. It was so big and bulky and collected way too much dust. There's a reason the Nintendo 64 hardware came in so many different colors. If looks weren't important, people wouldn't buy those limited edition consoles either.
You can't say you aren't curious to see how the new Playstation looks.
