Sony Corp.’s head of Playstation 4 design said the initial concept was a departure from what became of the final hardware design.

Tetsu Sumii, the chief designer of the UX Platform Design Group, Sony said this week said the first concept was ‘totally different’ from the final hardware.

PS4“I think about the horizontal, not just the vertical. I think about the 360 degree view. The reverse should be beautiful, too,” Sumii said to company publication Playstation Blog.

“I just wanted to make a simple object for the living room. Sometimes products are a little too exaggerated. It should be simple. That’s my thinking,” he said.

The PS4 will be sold at $399.99 Nov. 15.
