No matter how much you want it to be authentic, we’re afraid to say that this incredible PlayStation 4 trailer is as false as your grandparents’ teeth. A representative for Sony Computer Entertainment America has confirmed to Kotaku that the footage was not produced nor released by the company, meaning that it’s little more than an elaborate hoax.

Of course, the signs are already there if you look hard enough – it’s using existing footage of inFAMOUS: Second Son, and ironically there’s no ‘Make.Believe’ blip at the very end of the video. Still, this comes agonisingly close to being plausible, and we actually quite like the direction of the footage.

Despite being a fake, though, it raises an interesting discussion: what will the PS4 look like? Up until now, it’s a topic that we haven’t really given a whole lot of thought, but we’re curious what direction you think that the company’s going to adopt with the box’s design. Let us know in the comments section below.
