PS4 Slim’s Hardware Specs officially announced; 500 GB and 1 TB Models revealed

Following its PlayStation Meeting held in New York, Sony has released the official specs of the PlayStation 4 Slim.

In addition to revealing the specs, Sony also announced that there will be two versions of the slim, a 500GB version and a 1TB version. At the moment regional availability for the two versions are unknown. Further, while we know the PS4 Slim 500GB version will cost $300, a price of the 1TB version hasn’t yet been divulged, though one could guess it will run at $350.

Anyway, to the important stuff — here are the specs and contents of the box:

My Opinion:

I would like to have seen 1TB be the standard going forward, but alas the 500GB models are still kicking around at center stage. Personally, I have no interest in the slim.
