Dummy PS4 Units Delivered to GAME Stores, Close-up Picture of the Port Layout Shared

by on October 12, 2013 7:25 AM 59

This morning the Twitter accounts of several GAME stores came alight with pictures of PS4 units, inviting customers to go check them out. Unfortunately, though, those lovely looking consoles are just dummies.

When asked, an employee from the Leigh store confirmed that the units are just empty shells, but mentioned that they still have the actual port layout on the back. He even nicely agreed to send me a close-up picture showing them in detail.

The picture shows the PS4 label, and the areas for the Digital Out audio port (there seems to be a Mini USB port placed in it, the employee sharing the picture had no idea on what it is for or if it even has a purpose. Update: commenter Paul McCarthy suggests below that it should be to pass controller input over to a working PS4 unit locked inside the cabinet underneath, which makes a lot of sense), the HDMI Out port, the Ethernet port and the AUX port, that will host a custom shaped USB 3.0 cable used to connect to the PlayStation Camera. The rectangular hole at the bottom is for the power cable.

Below you can see a gallery with all the lovely console porn shaered by various GAME employees across the United Kingdom. Are you going to drive to your nearest GAME store to check it out? The second picture, shared by the Dudley store is particularly hilarious. In the last shot of the gallery from the Plymouth store you can also see some dummy PS4 game cases.

        excited*

  • nitsua78

    Any indication of where the hard drive bay is?

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      If I had to throw in a guess, considering that we have seen very close pics of the front and the back, it should be in one of the two side slits.

      This pic seems to show some ports on the right side, but it’s not clear enough to tell.

      • ol school gamer

        FINALLY see the disc tray left side. well it look like disc tray slot.

    This is a hollow dummy PS4 that’s simply going to pass through the controller USB cable to a proper enclosed working PS4 locked underneath

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Yeah we knew it was a dummy, but good call on the USB cable. I would have never imagined it.

    • Anon

      Paul, unfortunately your wrong about the usb pass-through for the the controller. The mini usb connection in the back is to illuminate the light strip on the top of the console.

    • Yo Mama

      Yep, it’s for the light illumination on the dummy unit only.

      • http://twitter.com/paulmccarthy Paul McCarthy

        True yes ye are also correct about the light illumination as I witnessed at a conference lately for myself :)

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    PS4 is the greatest looking console in history! Can’t wait to finally get my hands on this beauty!

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

      Agreed. :)

    • Guest

      $0N¥ PauperStation is for low IQ paupers that believe in all their lies, overhype and underdeliver!

      • Yo Mama

        “PauperStation”? This is by far the most stupid name I have seen used over and over. Way to be original there, Nintendo Fan. Which is ironic because, if anything, Nintendo are the true paupers in that they can’t even afford to spend enough money to make a true next-gen system. But whatever.

        • willhe

          I totally agree gayStation should just be the name. I mean if xbox one will be xbone the names should both sound homo like their fan bases right?

      • Guest

        At least PS4 gives you your money’s worth instead of ripping the consumer off like Microsoft and Xbox does

        • Larc

          oh u forgott the sony of ps3 with lies and promises jajaja

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        Cute, but no. You keep dreaming pal. When you come out of your hater closet, then you will understand the appeal of PS4 and why Sony is here today and has won the hearts of many gamers thus far.

      • Tired Trinity

        At-least it is way better than Micro$hit’s seXbox One, if you offend the things I like, I will too. One eye for one!

        • John Apeli

          “Micro$hit’s seXbox One”
          Wow, so very, very, very, very stupid. You do realize writing stuff like that makes you look like a 12 yo nerd sony fanboy?

      • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

        @Guest

        WTF?

      • Krakn3dfx

        That salt.

    • John Apeli

      Wat? Not even close.

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        Keep telling yourself that. Sony gets taken for granted easily which is why just now more people are in on them with PS4 as they doubted PS3 but after many years with PS3 now they’re anticipating what will happen with PS4, as they are skeptical of what will happen with Sony. I myself am not a skeptic, unlike you apparently. Which console do u want anyway?-the most that is overall.

        • John Apeli

          I want neither.
          Also the Gamecube, DS lite, PS2 slim are all better

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            I respect that. And I owned Gamecube and DS Lite which I agree are both great looking consoles…same for PS2 slim, which my cousin actually owns but has great look to it all the same. So do u want Wii U then, or do u already own it? I have one myself and am enjoying it; I don’t say that out of bias but because the system’s worth it. Or do u want or own a 3DS/3DS XL, as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is like a month from now and would be a good time for you to get one, as I myself am looking to upgrade to 3DS XL but unfortunately so far the bundle for it is only confirmed for Europe while I reside in the land of the lost “American Dream”.

  • RealityCheck2013

    Shame 90% of UK Gaming shops(well most are GAME anyway) are Anti-PlayStation tho :-/ I bet you once the Xbox ONE comes out the PS4 will get less shop space like in all places that sell the PS3 Vs the Xbox 360 in the UK. That is 1 IMPORTANT thing SONY has to keep a eye on next moth + GOD knows it’s even worse in the USA :-/

    Oh well, anyway the PS4 looks SEXY!!! :P :P :P

    • RandomUser2yr29387

      They give more shelf space to what sells better.
      Pre-Orders are heavily in PS4s favor. Once that sells better than Xbox One, it will get more shelf space.

    • ol school gamer

      playstation brand have MORE!!! space than 360-x1 in USA…. lease in washington sony do.

  • Yo Mama

    What the hell is Lindsay Lohan doing with the PS4? I hope she knows its just a shell and she won’t get much if she’s looking to pawn it for drug money;)

  • gamer Ned

    I’m so hard!

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

      LOL

  • ol school gamer

    where is the dang DISC DRIVE slot????

    • Aidan Murphy

      Hard to see, but on the photo right at the top it’s under the part that says ‘Sony’ and left of the buttons (on/ eject) – There is a disc drive slot lmao, just hard to see.

  • ol school gamer

    not buy digital only console thats BS

    • Bankai

      It’s not digital only.

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

      Maybe that is because you call yourself “ol school gamer”?

    • quinten488

      u must be stupid

  • Bankai

    So sexy!!

  • ariessiren

    Console looks beautiful

  • Guest

    Looks like an absolute PIECE OF SH*T!

    • Guest

      Looks better than Xbox One, that piece of sh*t looks like an oversized VCR!

  • PatcherStation

    The PS4 may have got off to a better start, but the Xbox One could have the last laugh. Microsoft have more money than Sony (for gaming), so it’s not going to be a walk in the park for Sony. I can see the Xbox One dropping in price first, maybe packaged without Kinect to bring it up to the price of the PS4. Forza 5, Ryse and Dead Rising 3 are great launch games for the Xbox One.

    • Greg Skies

      Ha ha.. what a joke. PS4 will destroy the xbox/vcr one come this holiday.

      • Steve Denninger

        Winner this holiday season will be based on who ships out the most. Not like each will have unlimited amounts. Can only sell what they have. Not hard to understand

      • John Apeli

        Do you actually care?

  • a

    sony is liar

  • snake8989

    PS4 “by the end of the year” for 3 millions legitimate gamers .

  • snake8989

    Lol. round face behind the eraser.

  • PS4 Dummies

    All I can say is good luck when millions of you are trying to access PSN all at the same time on launch day lol!

  • guest

    Where is the true PS4 conecting and moving?

  • Lag-Fighting Tactics

    SONY is doing a great job with units, showing how much smaller the PS4 is yet 50% more
    raw pixel shader power.
    M$ has been running sh4t scared and so have the fans, that still hoping the second gpu
    fantasy is real. Die size has already shown its a joke to even believe.
    They get a weak budget gpu (allows room on the die for sdram)
    which it’s users will watch more tv instead which is what m$ what them too do so they can sell their viewing stats.

  • tech

    LOL.

    PS4 still can’t play games. Only 3 weeks left ya?

    I sense a pushback on release date…

    • You are flat out wrong

      They’ll be the ones on display in the case. The real ones will be locked up tight to prevent burglaries. Troll harder. ^_^

      • tech

        you mean the PC Dev kit that goes under the cabinet? lol.

  • Pit Tat Chan

    That mean since E3 to now, Sony just show this dummy(and PC) for lying. That mean PS4 must have serious problem, let’s see how Americans white mouses can survive this shock…
