From threespeech.com (the "semi" official PlayStation Blog): [QUOTE] * What prototypes did the external design of PS3 go through? * Phil Harrison: "There were two - no, three actually. One that was very much in the mould of traditional consumer electronics: slab fronted, and that never moved beyond the conceptual phase. This [the final design] is the one Kutaragi-san spent the most time on, although it did evolve a little bit from E3 2005. The basic shape is the same, even though it's a bit bigger. Then there was another one that was a bit more out there, but I can't tell you what it looked like because we may see it in other devices."
* Is episodic gaming something that you are keen to experiment with? * Phil Harrison: "We are doing a couple of things which are bang on that objective. The area that I'm most excited about at the moment is empowering user-created content. Embedding the user creation tools into the game application and opening it up to a cloud of users. That's the trend I'm most excited about." [/QUOTE]
