I'm somewhat disappointed that they kept the same font from the slim PS3. I'm also disappointed that it will just be PS4 on the box rather than the whole "PLAYSTATION 4". Which is why I loved the original PS3 cuz it had the whole "PLAYSTATION 3" on the box even though people hated the Spider-Man font.

How would you know that about the box? Is this something new or you are guessing?

The font isn't bad, but the associations were. Many people recognised it as the Spider-Man font and wondered what on Earth it was doing on a games console. Others that didn't specifically recognise it still felt it looked familiar (and one of the worst things for potential customers of a games console to be thinking is "I wonder where I saw that font?"). So when Sony re-branded the PS3, the font was one of the things that had to go (alongside the design, the price, and even things like the start-up sound).

It was also a political move within Sony. The font was Kutaragi's choice - something he wanted enough that he reportedly "insisted" upon it, and getting rid of it sent the clear message that Kutaragi wasn't in charge any more - and that Kaz Hirai was.

Personally, I hated the PS3 rebranding....I liked the Spiderman font....plus I hate having two completely different box designs intermingled on my shelf.
