Unofficial PS4 Slim: Everything you need to know

The PS4 Slim has been leaked and confirmed by numerous outlets such as Eurogamer and Digitalfoundry. Here is everything you need to know: release date, specs, price, and a video of it running.

Take it with a grain of salt if you like, but beyond official confirmation, this is certainly the PS4 Slim.

The latest Sony hardware model is much slimmer than the original, already slim, PS4, and boasts a few internal and aesthetic changes. Further it will be available to buy in September.

PS4 Slim release date

WSJ reports that Sony is now cutting production of the original PS4 model ahead of the launch of PS4 Slim on September 14th. The new model is expected to be revealed at the PlayStation Meeting in New York on September 7th, where Sony will also showcase PS4 NEO, an upgraded PS4 model sporting 4K resolution.

PS4 Slim specs

The PS4 Slim (model number CUH-2016A) comes packed with 500GB of storage. According to one person who already has the console in their possession, it also sports a hard-drive bay down the right-hand side so storage is upgradeable.

Other changes noted include:

  • Physical eject and power buttons on the left-hand side by the disc slot
  • Rounded corners
  • Matt-black design rather than glossy

It also contains/lacks the following:

  • Two USB ports
  • An ethernet an HDMI port
  • There appears to be no optical ouput
  • The neon light is missing
  • Supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands (the current PS4 only supports 2.4GHz)

PS4 Slim price

A price has not surfaced.

My Opinion:

This is 99% real. 64% sexy. And 100% going to be mine.
