The internal architecture of the new PS4 system has been revamped, reducing its volume by more than 30% compared to the previous models and reducing its weight by 25% and 16% compared to the first (CUH-1000 series) and current (CUH-1200 series) models respectively. Also, the new PS4 system is more energy efficient, as the power consumption has been cut by more than 34% and 28% compared to the very first and current models.

The form factor of the new system inherits the slanted body design of the previous models, with the foreside and backside of its body slightly angled. The corners are trimmed and curved, giving it a softer impression that would appeal to a wider range of audience. The new simple look, with gloss finished PS family mark designed on the center of the top surface, will fit perfectly wherever it is placed.

[ Original] During the Playstation Meeting conference, Sony’s Andrew House officially announced the redesigned PS4 – the PS4 Slim.

Although not officially confirmed, the PS4 slim already found its way to the web the last weeks. Several video’s and images of the redesigned console surfaced, and even some teardown videos were published. On today’s Playstation Meeting, CEO Andrew House officially announced the PS4 Slim, which will be released later this month on September 15 for $299 (€ 299).
