Sony Preparing A Slimmer PS4 Model- Report

PS4 Super Slim? PS4 Pro Slim? PS4 Slim Pro?

Posted By | On 27th, Mar. 2017 Under News, Rumors | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The fine folks at DigiTimes haven’t just reported Nintendo’s apparent intention to produce an obscene 20 million Nintendo Switch consoles in the coming financial year– almost as an aside, they have also noted that Sony, apparently, plans on introducing a new, thinner model of the PS4 this year.

Now wait just a second- back up a bit. Sony introduced two new PS4 models last year, the PS4 Slim, which is already a size reduction over the launch PS4, and the PS4 Pro, which, yes, was massive, but also needed to be by design. So what is this new slim PS4 going to be? It is entirely possible that it’s a slimmer PS4 Slim, a PS4 Super Slim so to say- on the other hand, there is also a possibility that the PS4 Pro is getting a cheaper (and hopefully better looking…) revision.

I must also point out that while DigiTimes is a great source when it comes to news about phones, their track record for leaks about games hardware has been less than stellar- these were the folks who insisted that the ‘NX’ would launch last Summer, as an example. So while I’d note that this should be taken with a grain of salt, I must also ask- why would anyone lie about something as inconsequential as a slimmer PS4?

Whatever this slim PS4 is, I hope it looks better than the Slim and Pro. And for the love of goodness, I hope it includes a UHD Blu Ray drive this time.

    I’m sure well see a Pro Slim but not this soon. I’d be willing to bet it might be a new sku PS4 Slim with possibly a 4k player but really who needs a 4k player just yet. It hasn’t been all that much help for Microsoft’s XB S sales.

      On UHD discs you can store more data (better textures, better audio etc):

      – BR:50 GB of data
      – UHD BR: 133 GB of data

    • Holeybartender

      True but they aren’t using them for games,not this gen anyways. I agree they should use them as I am tired of that damn patch-it-later mentality of developers these days,however it’s the hardware that’s the limitation. I would love to see those 7-10 terabyte storage Blurays they have used for games but that is not likely possible.

      It’s gonna be a PS4 Ultra or PS5 for Fall 2018, we’ll see what leaks out in the next couple months.

  • LifeOnMars

    Sony has no need release a super slim for at least18 months,I honestly love the styling of the slim and the Pro, some cool case colours would be nice, in the meantime. No rush for 4K Blu ray it will be included in the PS5 if format takes off.

      It’s gonna be a PS4 Ultra or PS5 for Fall 2018, we’ll be seeing more leaks as we head towards E3

    Let’s say PS4-Pro-S could be on the cards and in time for Scorpio release, now IF that took place then price cuts could also hit all PS4’s allowing even more parents to save money for their kids and lets be honest more parents would buy the PS4 than Scorpio just because of price and popularity.

    • kma99

      You would buy it even if it was more expensive. Lets be honest

    • Gamez Rule

      I’m not buying into Scorpio when MS cannot even support us Xbone gamers. It’s all well and good having the worlds most powerful console when there is support, but where are the full true exclusive games for Xbone owners? I have a PC so if all games are on both Console and PC it’s not worth buying into the Scorpio in my opinion.

    • kma99

      Let’s be honest you cant afford it lol. Lets be honest, you were just bragging about playing on pc the other day yet you sit here and complain about support a console with high ens pc specs lol. Lets be honest, you lie alot.

    • Gamez Rule

      LMAO! I don’t need to lie unlike you☺

      My old gaming consoles placed in a spare room used by family and friends and yes if you look there is an old PC of mine in that picture too.. It only holds a 750 TI GPU but can still play PC games on the 1080p TV.

      Meanwhile the Xbone and PS4, as well as the PC I use for this gen gaming are being used daily, and when those consoles get old they too will join the games-room like the other consoles☺

    • Gamez Rule

      Just to add to my post.. Kma99 I also still use my custom 360 in the main room where Xbone sits, ( see pic )…So where is your PS4? Or because you don’t own a PS4 are you gonna say…. *Don’t need to prove anything* like you always do when being called out LOL.

    • kma99

      You dont use any pc daily stop lying. All u do is play free games on ps plus. Isn’t that right mr. Its ok for sony to buy up third party games because they do it right?

    • Gamez Rule

      Lmao! I use PC more than consoles, but truth is consoles are good for the house hold as everyone can use them, but yet again why do you care, you don’t own anything worth using.

      You can chat all you like about other peoples gaming gear but where is your PS4? Oh that’s right you don’t own a PS4 you just say you do, or are you gonna say…. *Don’t need to prove anything* like you always do because you have nothing to show☺

    • kma99

      No you use ps4 more than anything else. You only bring up pc to try and make the case for ms not having exclusives lol. That’s all you sony fanboy do when u lose an argument. Just bring up that all powerful pc u have lol.

    • Gamez Rule

      Hello, I own all MS consoles ( See pics ) and If pointing out facts and truth makes me a fanboy I’m fine with that as it’s better than living like you in denial LMAO!

      And it’s true MS have now started releasing everything they do onto Windows 10 PC and sometimes allowed exclusives hit Steam ( Quantum Break ) hence why Xbone hasn’t really got any full true console exclusives anymore☺ It’s also true that IF you have a PC and Xbone there really is no need for Scorpio.

    • kma99

      Its one thing to own something its another thing to play it. You dont play games. If you did you would shut up and play instead of complaining about who is better.

    • Gamez Rule

      “Its one thing to own something its another thing to play it”

      Maybe you should explain that to MS and their lack of full true console exclusives with the Xbone LOL.

      You’re all talk about owning a PS4 and people can see straight through you. Truth is I own the machines I post about unlike you that posts without even supporting them☺

    • kma99

      Truth is i own everything but unlike u i dont have to show you sh!t. You think its that difficult to snap a picture and post it giving you the middle finger beside my ps4, pc, xbox and switch? Of course not but maybe if you didnt act like a bumbling idiot i would.
      Oh yeah did u get the memo that all ps4 games will eventually hit the pc so what’s your definition of true exclusives if i dont need a ps4 anymore.

    • Gamez Rule

      Yeah yeah yeah we believe you ☺☺☺

      Not all PS4 games are hitting PC so yes you’ll still need a PS4 to play ALL games on the console.

    • kma99

      Why do u continue to talk in third person? Can you prove that not all of Sony’s games will hit pc? Oh yeah there was an interview a month ago where phil spencer said there will be xbox exclusives and pc exclusives so you will need an xbox to play all games. I guess that shot down your little theory.

    • Gamez Rule

      Remember when Quantum Break was for Xbone only, then it became a MS exclusive for Xbone and Windows 10, but then hit Steam so no need for Xbone or MS.

      Well just like the above fact this will be another fact that no matter what games are release on PS-Now for PC users to play they cannot be played as good as what the console allows it’s gamers to do ( Streaming games isn’t anywhere near as good ), and to date not ALL ps3 games are on that service let alone the PS4 games.

      so that’s how IMO I know not ALL Sony exclusives will be on that service as otherwise it would have happened by now.

      As for “phil spencer said there will be xbox exclusives” where are they now then?

    • kma99

      Remember when knack was a ps4 exclusive? What’s your point? Unless you work for sony and can give us factual proof that all ps4 games wont go to ps now then shut up. Who would pay for that service if at thr end of the day you’re gonna keep content off the service? That makes no sense and you would eventually kill thr service. Go read up on business 101.

    • Gamez Rule

      OMG! Read my post!

      “Remember when knack was a ps4 exclusive? What’s your point? Unless you work for sony and can give us factual proof that all ps4 games wont go to ps now then shut up”

      Already shown proof LMAO!… “Here is the official statement about PS-Now and PC “For the first time in PlayStation’s history, you can now stream hundreds of blockbuster titles straight to your Windows PC, all courtesy of PlayStation Now.” ( There are thousands of games not hundreds ) so yes I can prove not all
      Sony’s games will hit PC”

      Why only state hundreds and not ALL games LMAO!

    • kma99

      Why would u put thousands if games on this service at one time idiot? You have to cycle games in and out to keep the service viable. You can’t put everything in there at once you have to give people a reason to keep buying into the service. Doggone do people have to write this stuff out for you sonytards to comprehend.

    • Gamez Rule

      You clearly don’t know about PS-Now LMAO!..

      Fact is not ALL Sony games are on PS-Now, and not ALL Sony games will be placed onto PC via PS-Now as Sony stated Hundreds of games ( NOT ALL ) games, and IF you knew anything about PS-Now you’ll know Sony adds to the games list and not keep taking away from the listings.

      You wanted proof and I showed it.. Now YOU show me proof that ALL Sony games are coming to PC? And while you’re at it where you posted “phil spencer said there will be xbox exclusives” answer this too (where are they now then? )

    • kma99

      Why would u put every thriple a game in ps now at the same time? You wouldnt clown you have to give people a reason to keep subscribing to the service and throwing every game in there at once will only diminish the value of the service. You’re trying to hard to act dumber than you already are.

    • Gamez Rule

      So like I stated “Not ALL Sony games are on PS-Now, which means not ALL Sony games will be placed onto PC via PS-Now” this also means PC users will NOT be able to play ALL Sony exclusives. Hence why you’ll still need a PS4 console ( or PS3 for that matter ) to play the games that are not offered on PS-Now☺

      “phil spencer said there will be xbox exclusives” Answer this then ( Where are they now then in 2017? )

    • kma99

      Why would i assume that all thr games would be there now dummy if im giving you their business model? Once thry hit ps now thry are no longer exclusive and all i havr to do is wait therefore i dont need a ps4 in thr long run to play their games.
      Why would i care when the xbox exclusives hit the system? If they never so then oh wrll but last i checked sunset overdrive, halo 5, forza 5 and 6 were exclusives.
      P.S. sony said at thr beginning of the gen for us to get ready for 1080p 60 frames where are they at? Dont worry im waiting on that freshly baked damage control

    • Gamez Rule

      LMAO! “Not ALL Sony games are on PS-Now, which means not ALL Sony games will be placed onto PC via PS-Now” = Correct and true like I pointed out so IF you want to wait and hope that games will come to PS-Now instead of getting the console then that’s your choice. Enjoy your wait☺

      Also the exclusives you listed are not 2017 titles, I clearly asked “Where are they now then in 2017?” when you stated “phil spencer said there will be xbox exclusives”

    • Eddie Battikha

      It’s gonna be a PS4 Pro Slim Ultra or PS5 for Fall 2018, I’m very curious to see what leaks out in the next couple months.
