Sony's PlayStation 4 was always expected to come in a downsized "slim" version, just as all three of its predecessors came in miniature form as well. Well, speculate no more, because it is here and images are leaking all over the internet that allegedly prove it.
The design is almost identical to that of the PS4, only smaller and with more rounded edges, and is meant to compete directly with the Xbox One S. The leaked images show that it comes with a 500 gigabyte hard drive and it appears that Sony has removed the optical audio port on the new design. Besides that though, the console should be exactly the same.
There's not much more to say as that's all we've got to go with right now, but more information should be available on September 7, when Sony is expected to debut a new version of the PS4 that's currently codenamed the PS4 "Neo." Maybe this is it.
But do we really need a PS4 Slim now that it's possible to play PS4 games on a Mac?
