The pinstripes are weird enough, but either from top down or the sides it just looks straight broken! It looks like it has two old fashioned pop-open disc trays, one that wont close right, and one that got stuck closed too far down. Oddly enough the design is practically covering up their own Sony logo. Look at the sharp edge that sticks out on the far left of the rear hookups photo. It looks like it was designed by committee, blind. It looks like The Homer. The shapes by the Sony logo look like Homer... his beard shape. Really hope it aint real.
