PlayStation 4 slim is coming in at $299

1 min read


Here’s something nobody saw coming at all!

The PlayStation 4 is coming in a newer, slimmer package – with the slim PS4 set to be released in most territories by September 15 this year. It’ll be coming at a price of $299, and replaces the current PS4.

At that sort of pricing expect the PS4 to start retailing locally at around R4700 or so. As we’ve seen from leaks, the slimmer PS4 replaces the touch buttons with physical ones, and does very little else. Say goodbye to the optical port though, but it’s a great system to jump in with otherwise.

It’s good for 1080p gaming. If you want more than that, there’s the other PS4.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
