Ben Sheene / Sep 7th, 2016 No Comments
Sony revealed the PS4 Slim, a smaller version of its best-selling console, will release on Sept. 15 for $299.
The console launches at a price $100 cheaper than the original PS4, which arrived in North America on Nov. 15, 2013 for $399.99.
PS4 Slim will phase out and eventually replace the original model of the PS4, which has sold over 40 million units to date. The new model is meant to be slimmer, lighter, and more energy efficient. A redesigned DualShock 4 controller will also release with the PS4 Slim.
Weeks ago a PS4 Slim was leaked into the wild. Unboxing and teardown videos revealed nearly everything about the console before it was officially announced by Sony at its 2016 PlayStation Meeting.
PS4 Pro was also announced as an upgraded version of the base PS4 experience. This version will add 4K gaming and HDR due to a faster CPU and more powerful GPU. The PS4 Pro will release on Nov. 10 for $399.
