When Sony announced the PlayStation 4 back in February, it showed off an impressive spec sheet, games and a brand new controller design. What it didn’t show, was the actual box. There have been countless mock-ups of the PS4 on the internet since then (and even before that), but the console in this teaser video takes the cake (video shown below).

Before even seeing the teaser clip, a Sony representative already took to the internet to confirm that this thing isn’t the real deal. It’s unfortunate, because after watching it, it should have been the real PS4.
