PS3 Game Box Art Will Soon Look Like PS4 Box Art

Apparently, here in the new age, we must try to forget the old age; Sony is shifting the look of the PS3 game box art for the second time, now to bring it in line with the blue aesthetic of the PS4 and Vita box art styles.

IGN noticed this change when given the art for Tecmo's Deception IV and confirmed with Sony that this is the new deal. As you can see, the top brand bar is now blue instead of black. Waaaaaaay back in the day (aka before late 2009), PS3 games had a black bar on the left side of the art with "PlayStation 3" all the way up it in Spider-Man font, which was fun. Through it all, the PS logo has stayed in just about the same spot though.

The key difference now between platforms is in the style of the boxes themselves. PS3 uses thick blu-ray-style Amaray cases, PS4 uses short DVD-style Amaray cases, and the Vita uses those little whatever things. PS3 and PS4 cases are about the same size, but they don't look similar.

Enjoy True Detective tonight, everyone.


    since the article itself is kinda boring, I'm gonna use this to talk about true detective


      Yeah who would of that he or she was the yellow king. And that space thing. My favourite part was the Taco Bell scene, when he found the yellow king's finger in his taco.

    I like blue but the first design is still the best.

    I find the current one is fine as you can distinguish the difference in a game store at a glance where the PS3 games finish and where the PS4 ones start.

    Making it almost the same as PS4 seems like an odd choice to confuse customers.

      I was thinking the same thing. Especially with so many games around that are on both PS3 and PS4. You just know there are going to be trolls who will go into a JB or whatever and stick a PS3 box in among the PS4 ones (or vice versa), and somebody's going to pick it up and not notice until they get home.

        Serves them right for not paying attention.

        Just like someone getting hit by a train or a tram... :)

      They're following Nintendo's plan before they already get all the sales.

    As confusing as Gatorade Bottle Labels. That same Grey background with tiny almost illegible lettering for the flavour name.....

    Great, another redesign. As if it wasn't annoying enough having two different types of spine art in a shelf wasn't bad enough.

    This feels like a stupid idea that will cause problems for retailers as you'll have so many situations of people buying a game for the wrong system.

    I own an Oblivion with the silver spine. its killing me
