PS3 packaging unleashed!
The wait is over! We've got our first peek at the PlayStation 3's box art. Not surprisingly, it follows the format used for Blu-Ray movies very closely. I happen to like the standard blue boarder in this mock-up and the new "thinness" of the Blu-Ray movie packaging (it takes 2 or 3 Blu-Ray disks to equal the thickness of a traditional DVD case).
The only drawback I see at this point with Blu-Ray media is the increased chance for disk damage. HD-DVD fanboys seem to believe that a Blu-Ray disk is 10x easier to permanently damage because the data is kept so much closer to the surface of the disk versus a standard DVD or HD-DVD. And, I do know that the new thin cases are going to be much less likely to survive being stepped on than their thicker counter-parts. Translation: the PS3 is not kid friendly.
[UPDATE: Here's a link to the claim around Blu-Ray being easy to damage.]
