Sony has already sent out invites for its next console launch on September 7 and it seems the PlayStation model slated for debut has already leaked.
The Wall Street Journal reports, Sony will launch two new consoles at its event in September. On September 7, a standard version of PS4 is expected to launch alongside the high-end PlayStation 4 Neo. The report also confirmed the standard model will be slimmer and lighter than the current generation PS4, which Sony has already discontinued. In multiple interviews, Sony executives have hinted at high-end PS4 being in works but the refreshed model could still gain a lot of traction.
The leaked images further confirm that Sony is indeed working on a slimmer and lighter PS4 which would become standard model at the end of this year. The leaked model was listed for sale on a auction site, before being pulled down.
While the console is still the talking point, a leaked video shows PS4 Slim’s new DualShock 4 controller. The biggest difference here is the lightbar on the top of the controller. It is unclear whether Sony plans to introduce some new feature based on this new lightbar but the controller is definitely real.
The leaked PS4 Slim confirms 500GB storage and will be available sometime after the official announcement. Sony PS4 Slim will become the cheapest offering in the Sony PS4 range, expected to be priced less than the original PS4.
