Hate it... I don't understand why they keep changing the boxes. I'm anal about it being uniform on my shelf so they better not change the spines.

I hate it as well. I really liked the Spider-Man font...

Because it's the PS3-that-looks-like-a-PS2 era, not the shiny new Spiderman PLAYSTATION 3 era.

Does this mean the boxes will no longer have the see-through plastic on top of it? That thing really annoys me, it feels really pointless. Though I cant say I like the new style, though its more like the original PS/PS2 style it feels very imposing over the boxart.

Isnt the most important point that it looks distinctly diffrent from the current PS3 game boxes and it might through off less savvy consumers?

I really like the format thew have now, I don't like that there changing it.
I just hope the box is the same size as the old ones so that my PS3 games wont look all weird on my shelf cause some of them will be short boxes, and some of them tall ones.

I hate change blah blah blah blah.
Were you people pissed when they let women vote too?
I like the new box design.

#12 Posted by ZeroCast (1869 posts) -

Love the design, much more simplistic and easy to look at.
#13 Posted by crusader8463 (14427 posts) -

i always found it weird the ps3 had its header down the side as every one else has it up top. Wii, 360, PSP and PC. The DS was the only other one to do it, and i think it's because like the ps3 case it was more square then vertically rectangular.

I for one am not a fan of the Ratchet and Clank box art. It's too generic. 
 
I sorta don't like the new PS3 box design either.

Ratchet games have never really had all that great box art, to be honest.

It's awful, gradients are never a good idea.

That's true. I just refreshed my memory by looking at them all. They seem to be getting gradually worse each game.
#18 Posted by mordukai (7182 posts) -

It's just a casing Liquid. I know where you are coming from but I think you are getting worked our for nothing really.

If you're going to do gradients,do them right. Why are they doing this?

That's the only thing I care about. If it's a little different, I won't mind, but if it's drastically different and clashes with the old spines then I'm not going to be happy.

Isnt that already a problem if you buy a platinum release of a game since it makes it almost entierly a grey colour which stands out quite a bit?

No sir, I don't like it.

Article on Kotaku says that the spines will be different.
 
Kotaku said:

Oh, and for those of us interested in picking apart box art minutiae, the back of the PS3 game case is also available for ogling at the blog. Even the spine!! It's branding heaven.

I'm not a happy camper, Sony...

Personally, I hated the PS3 boxes because they were out of line with -everything- else, if you want to really get in to bitching about being 'uniform', and I always disliked the Spiderman font. I like that the PS3 is starting to line up with its' predecessors and peers when it comes to visual aeshteiblahblahblahblah.
 
Seriously, they're boxes, guys. Is this really that big a deal? Is your life going to change dramatically?

I could care less about the Ratchet and Clank box art, and the conversation in this thread isn't about that. It's about how it'll fuck up the neat, clean, organized look of my game spines on my gaming rack.
#36 Posted by pause422 (6216 posts) -

Looks really dumb. Just like the design of the slims.

#37 Posted by Otacon (2209 posts) -

Yep older looked better

#38 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

cool, i hope that they keep it the same size. i really like the size of the ps3 cases. it saves a lot of plastic also. i think it is alright, i hope that they save it so they don't keep on changing it.

Spine shot shown here:

Took some serious digging to find it, but here it is. Isn't too bad, but still...
#40 Posted by AndrewGaspar (2419 posts) -

It looks so bland and thrown together. The old boxes were sleek and new. In my opinion, they were way better than the 360 and Wii cases; more streamlined and placed more emphasis on the art. Now... just back to the bland, old look.

Sony is basically trying to rebrand the playstation brand... i think they threw out what they first had planned for the PS3, and came up with another plan.

#44 Posted by Qorious (847 posts) -

I like it, but now my PS3 collection won't match anymore. And since there's a PSN icon on Ratchet & Clank, does that mean this game will have multiplayer? O_o

#45 Posted by mordukai (7182 posts) -
@m1k3: I remember reading that the one reasons that the PS3 logo has been rebranded was because that it looked smaller compared to the 360 logo.  The Slim represent a new start of sorts for Sony with the PS3 and it's really good to see that kind of change coming from a company that are fierce reputation for not changing. I can't help but think if its all because of Mr. Howard Stringer. There is more going on here then what people realize but if you know how to read between the lines and have good memory then you'll realize very fast what's really going on at Sony. 
#46 Posted by rjayb89 (7728 posts) -

That thing looks like it came from a swap meet.

#47 Posted by mordukai (7182 posts) -
 Heres an example for why the logo was rebranded. 
 


 
#48 Posted by agentboolen (1832 posts) -

I thought the other style look nicer, this reminds me of the PSP's case too much.

#49 Posted by PufferFiz (1384 posts) -

I do not like the slim look and I do not like the new box look.

#50 Edited by teekomeeko (629 posts) -

I like the second box design with the "Playstation Network" and sometimes the "Only on Playstation" wording on the same level below the plastic on the case itself.
 
This just looks bland to me.
 
Oh, and just for you font lovers out there, the "Spider-Man" font is called Homoarakhn - now all it's good for is annoying people with label makers :(
