I do find the PS4 to be unattractive.
But.. I find the XBOX One to be the kind of thing you'd hide away because it's just beyond unattractive and should never be seen.
The pretty consoles were the Wii-U, Second generation PS2's and... the Gamecube.
I'd say the Gamecube goes down well for it's looks and practicality. it came with a handle how awesome is that!
Most consoles are not that attractive. The worst ones I've ever seen have to be the 3DO, XBOX One and original XBOX.
last generation of 360's were quite nice looking. All the PS3's were ugly though.
Either way.. I want a console that I can rely on to work. PS4 may not be the right choice this time but I'll take my chances because my experience simply is that Microsoft consoles are likely to die after a month of owning them.
