Sony Computer Entertainment Announce PS4 Slim, Available September 15th 2016

During its meeting in New York, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced a new slimmer and lighter PlayStation 4 (PS4 Slim), which will become available in Japan, North America and in Europe September 15, 2016 for $299, 299€ and £259.

The internal architecture of the new PS4 system has been revamped, reducing its volume by more than 30% compared to the previous models and reducing its weight by 25% and 16% compared to the first (CUH-1000 series) and current (CUH-1200 series) models respectively. Also, the new PS4 system is more energy efficient, as the power consumption has been cut by more than 34% and 28% compared to the very first and current models.

The form factor of the new system inherits the slanted body design of the previous models, with the foreside and backside of its body slightly angled. The corners are trimmed and curved, giving it a softer impression that would appeal to a wider range of audience. The new simple look, with gloss finished PS family mark designed on the center of the top surface, will fit perfectly wherever it is placed.
