It leaked quite comprehensively a few weeks ago, and now Sony have officially confirmed a new, slimmer PlayStation 4 at their PlayStation Meeting in New York. It’s out on September 15th in most markets and will cost $299 and £259.
It shrinks the PS4 down quite significantly to a squarer form, cutting it down in size and made more efficient, and true to the leaks it’s lacking an optical output on the back of the console. This is the new standard PlayStation 4 model.
The console will have HDR output, thanks to a new firmware that is also being rolled out to older consoles. It will also come with the new DualShock 4 controller which is also a like for like replacement for the current DS4 model. This is, as was leaked prior to the press conference, a slight revision with a lightbar built into the touchpad.
