Before the E3 2016 event, there were rumors that Sony is going to release a new iteration of the Playstation 4. And, it was the case as the gaming company unveiled their plans of releasing the Playstation Neo sometime “soon”.
It seems that people have the knack of finding out what Sony is going to do way ahead of their official reveals.
Sony is going to have their “Playstation Meeting” this September 7 and rumors state that they are going to announce two of their newest game consoles: the Playstation Neo and the Playstation 4 Slim.
Both of them are just reiterations of the current generation Playstation 4 with the former having beefier specs and the latter, a Playstation 4 with a slimmer form factor.
They are still going to announce these products in the upcoming event but apparently, someone already did an unboxing of the Playstation 4 Slim.
A Youtuber that goes by the name “ZRZ” apparently got his hands on the newest Playstation 4 Slim from an online auction site.
He introduced the product and he even did an unboxing. Unfortunately, at the time of writing this article, the video has since been taken down, probably because of his unboxing of the upcoming game console.
Well, I saw the video and the Playstation 4 Slim is a promising game console. For one, it sports a square look and it is even more compact than the original Playstation 4.
Unfortunately, ZRZ wasn’t able to disclose the specs as he was busy unboxing everything. But, I caught a glimpse of the Playstation 4 Slim and it was pretty good.
There are the usual HDMI ports and an Ethernet port on one side of the game console. On another side are an imprinted Sony brand name and the PS4 initials on the other end.
If you look at the game console from the top, you will also see the PS logo as well. It is reminiscent to that of the PSX days.
Probably, the best thing about the Playstation 4 Slim is that it comes with a new iteration of the Dualshock 4 controller.
The controller is still wireless but it now has a convenient LED strip that lights up depending on the game or application you’re currently using.
So, instead of looking at the top side of the controller, the LED strip will now notify you because it is located on the front of the controller; on the upper side.
Obviously, Sony didn’t want people to know about the upcoming game console because it was supposed to be a surprise. But truth be told, I was surprised because a person already had his hands on the new Playstation 4 Slim.
Now, this could also indicate that the ZRZ unboxing of the supposed PS4 Slim might be fake but since his unboxing video was taken down, it is almost clear that it was taken down because it was the original thing.
Still, the official unveiling of Sony’s Playstation 4 gaming consoles will be on September 7, although some people might not be hyped up in seeing the Playstation 4 Slim now.
