Possible design pedigree of the Sony PlayStation 2

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I was looking at a vintage portable radio on eBay (now closed) and was impressed by its clean modern lines, despite the fact that it was from the mid-1970s.
Bang & Olufsen Beolit 707
I found out that the Bang & Olufsen Beolit 707 was released in 1975, the product design was by Danish designer Jacob Jensen. The bright blue panels and black frame contrasted well, then I realised what it reminded me of:
Playstation 2
The original PlayStation 2 shared the same kind of top louvres and clean lines. The optional vertical stand, front controller port area and topside PS2 logo even incorporated a blue that is very similar to the Beolit 707. Coincidence or imitation?
