Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment has finally revealed the new PlayStation 4 model we’ve been seeing so much about all over the web. This new model will take the place of the current PlayStation 4, and is the new “entry level” PlayStation 4.
The new standard PS4 is starting to ship to retailers now and will be available by September 15 for a suggested retail price of $299.99 USD ($379.99 CAD), representing great value for gamers who haven’t joined the PS4 community just yet. Our engineering and design teams collaborated to consolidate PS4’s high-performance technology into a smaller, more energy efficient form factor. When comparing the new PS4 model to the current model, we’ve reduced volume by 30 percent, weight by 16 percent, and power consumption by 28 percent. Despite the sleek design, the new model packs all of the same powerful components that have made PS4 the best place to play.
The new PlayStation 4 model is certainly a great option for those who still don’t own a PS4, or for those who want a second PS4 for their house. What do you think of the new PlayStation 4 Slim and the new model of the DualShock 4? Let us know in the comments below!
