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.
