here's a better view from the front people...
and here's the link to the vertical position here
From what you can see, the system's color is a silverish white.
It can stand up vertically, like the ps2.
Also, it has no controller ports. That is because the new controllers will be wireless. You can see the wireless IR or radio reciever on the lower left (little black thing next to memory card slot).
I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes...or would I?
