    PS4 Box

    I have just managed to get a PS4 500GB at Sainsburys, with Battlefront, for 169.99. Really pleased, but as I'm buying for my son (who is a bit young for the game), I was kinda hoping I could get a plain PS4 console box somewhere.

    Any ideas where I can pick up one in good condition? Is eBay my best bet?

    Thanks!

    Huh? Just take the outer sleeve off if you don't want battlefront on show.

    ​Not with ps4, the box is the box, not a sleeve like Xbox one s' box.

    Every ps4 I have had is a white box with a printed sleeve. Just remove the sleeve and hey presto job done. Won't have a lovely piccy of a ps4 on the box but that only adds to the surprise come christmas morning.

    No that's not true at all, I have 1 right now that is a white box without a sleeve, you could call the sleeve an outer box if you like but it's still a sleeve. :-)

    Ok, someone else picked it up for me, so I will probably have a better idea once I get home and actually see it. Thanks

    m.ebay.co.uk/itm…875 This is what is inside the outer branded sleeve, as I say it doesn't have a pic of a ps4 on it but that would be an extra layer of surprise come christmas morning! :-)

    ​I've only had one with a 'sleeve'. The one with Infinite Warfare. The rest have been sleeveless. Not sure though, just went with what I've seen.

    The eBay listing I linked to above shows what I mean if it isn't clear. The ps4 (if bought new of course) always comes with a flimsy, thin cardboard outer box (or sleeve I'd call it) & under that is the main white box that all ps4 consoles come in. I'd rather just dispose of the battlefront sleeve than pay £15-20 for a normal ps4 box which is what the op was thinking of doing.

    ​Thanks Richard_Richard, I get what you mean now! I assumed that the outer "sleeve" box was the main box. If there is a white box underneath then I will just use that one! Thanks for your help (and saving me £15!!)

    You're welcome, glad I finally cleared up what I was trying to get at! :-)
