This is the PlayStation 4

At Sony's E3 2013 press conference, the company has finally unveiled the hardware for the PlayStation 4, after not revealing the design at the original launch event for the PlayStation 4 in February.

This is what the console will look like when it hits stores later this year. Essentially a big black box that is similar in design to Microsoft's Xbox One, departing from the PlayStation 3's curved design and returning to the hard edges similar to the PlayStation 2.
