24w ago - Since the official Sony PlayStation 4 unveil, some pictures of the PS4 box contents and bundled headset have now surfaced.
Below are the details, from DualShockers.com (linked above) to quote: "We already know that the box of the PS4 will include the console, the DualShock 4, a HDMI cable, a mono headset, a power cord, an USB cord and the instructions.
What we didn't yet know is how some of those components will look. Today the picture portrayed above has been floating on the internet. Is it the first picture or mock up of what will be inside the coveted PS4 box or a very well made fake?
Interestingly enough the USB cable seems to be a two meter one, at least making a visual comparison with an equivalent one I have at home, while the cable included in the PS3 was only one meter long. This might give some more leeway to those like me that like to play for extended sessions and prefer to have the controller plugged in.
Pushing the picture in question through some rather heavy enlarging on photoshop shows no real evident signs of alteration, but we weren't able to confirm the validity of the source, so for now we'll chalk it as a rumor. The headset looks a little cheap, but all in all it looks quite good, doesn't it?
Update: The picture is confirmed as legit. It appeared on the Amazon UK product listing together with a picture of the headset plugged into the DualShock 4, that you can see below."

I'm not pre-ordering, but I am now highly interested in the PS4. You couldn't have paid me $500 to get XBoned and put one of those devices in my house.
I'm still waiting it out until we get closer to launch, just to make sure Sony doesn't have any tricks up its sleeve. From rootkits, to features being removed after purchase, it's still hard to trust them. I am hoping they have learned and are being genuine about respecting their customers and understanding wanting to actually own what you purchase.
If they stick to everything they announced with no gimmicks or hidden secrets, I do think they are going to run off with the next gen console wars. Who would put an MS box into their, knowing they were an early adopter of the NSA's PRISM program, with a device with an always on camera & mic?
You would literally have to be INSANE. And MS wants to decide who your friends are, who you can share with, and you better check in every 24 hours or no gaming for you (we promise we won't upload all the info we've been capturing while you are offline...). The new xbox literally digusts me and I will be sure to spread the word.
