This Is One PS4 Box That You Probably Won't Be Seeing on Western Store Shelves

More's the pity

With the PlayStation 4’s launch in Japan now fast approaching, publishers are beginning to reveal the cover art for their release day wares. One such box that slipped through our news net late last year is this one for Yakuza Ishin, which bucks the series’ Eastern trend by adopting a full colour image. Pretty neat, huh? Despite...

Check Out Killzone: Shadow Fall's Stylish Box Art

Good and evil

It may not be quite as eye-catching as that incredible inkblot mock-up, but we’re still rather fond of Killzone: Shadow Fall’s official box art. The package demonstrates the divide between the ISA and the Helghast, and even incorporates the shape of the leather fastener on the redesigned antagonists’ masks. Interestingly, it...

Saints Row IV's Box Art Sets the Scene Surprisingly Well

A picture paints a thousand words

Could the box art for Saints Row IV possibly be any more perfect? It shows an image of the President of the United States – that’s you, by the way – sitting in a swish armchair in what appears to be the Oval Office, while a couple of gun-toting girls in pencil skirts point submachine guns at a giant energy...

Catching eyes

Arguably the most exciting element of a major hardware launch are the minor details that accompany it: the startup sequence, the user interface, and the boxes.

Makes a change from big guns

We’ve all had the occasional bad day, but they’re a regular occurrence for Beyond: Two Souls protagonist Jodie Holmes.

Dark Souls 2's Cover Depicts the Misery You Can Expect to Face in the Full Game

Cold shoulder

Dark Souls 2’s box art is about as morbidly bleak as you’d expect from a game that thinks constantly coaxing you into unexpected death-traps is entertainment. The cover – which popped up on All Games Beta earlier today – depicts a sword-wielding warrior with his back turned. We’re going to assume that he wasn’t in the mood...

Point Your Peepers at Watch_Dogs' Predictable Packshot

Sin city

For all of Watch_Dogs’ promise of innovation, we’d have thought that the designers at Ubisoft would have managed to come up with a more interesting cover for the release. Alas, here’s a picture of protagonist Aiden Pearce pointing his gun at the title’s ESRB rating. Perhaps the character’s not happy with the enormous logo covering...
