I look at the pictures here and the PS3 slim looks really nicely designed inside: http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/PlayStation-3-Slim/1121/2 That much is encouraging and is very much more important than what I'm about to mention. But... I have to say it, I do love a nice box. And I love the way Apple wraps up everything so beautifully you have that emotional attachment even before you start using their stuff. Even the USB connectors have their own individual wrappers. In that respect the PS3 packaging is pretty ghastly. I mean, seriously, is this the best they could manage? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6U55oIA028 That's the sort of cheapo cardboard I'd expect cereal packets to come in. But then, perhaps I'm a bit strange with my boxing obsession. So, am I the only one that cares about this stuff?
