PlayStation 4's Packaging Is Way More Colourful in Japan

Posted by Sammy Barker

Taste the rainbow

Japan always gets better box art than Europe and North America, and the PlayStation 4’s colourful packaging is no exception to the rule. While the international wrapper has an air of royal class to it, the Eastern edition is just plain fun. It includes an oversized image of Knack on the front, and a rainbow pattern equivalent to the kind you’d expect to find on a packet of Skittles.

Remember, all next generation pre-orders in the Asian nation will come with a free copy of Mark Cerny’s impending platformer in order to make up for the system’s delay. Indeed, while the machine’s due out later this year in most global territories, players in the Land of the Rising Sun will have to wait until 22nd February. They do get Yakuza Ishin as a launch title, though.

Theres no Japanese translation for "First Limited Pack"?

I had to look really closely at that box to believe it was a japanese only edition.

It is very cool though.

@rjejr oh, they speak English in Japan all the time. They make you take it in school, fool : )
I'd rather have ...a different game too lol. I think I get what it's about, and I think I'm gonna pass on Knack, at least launch day. The design is way artsier and enticing, though. More fun; less elitist status-symbol. I wonder if that will move better than ours for people on the fence in Japan... if there are any
