VG247.it has found the author of the "PS4 Slim". The renders are not from Sony, but from an italian designer. The site interviewed him and discovered that he did it because he "wanted to draw the attention of Sony".
He drew attention...pretty clever if you ask me. Kudos!
Yeah, he plans everything, also some exit strategies to inform medias that was himself the author!
That was exactly my thoughts, Its just a designer getting his name out there, which is smart.
Too bad he made it so damn ugly..
I thought it was pretty obvious Sony wasn't about to release a slimmer version of the PS4! Why would they? They are in a very comfortable position now as sales are concerned. They would have to invest money they've made into a total redesign of the PS4, which in my opinion is totally unnecessary. Most of the times a slimmer version of a console are even considered necessary is to promote a spurt in sales! Something that Sony doesn't need at this time. I don't foresee a slimmer version coming out for at least 2 years, which by estimation would be the halfway point of the consoles life span.
Yeah, sure thing, but the fact that Sony doesn't need a PS4 Slim now, it doesn't mean that Sony doesn't have a PS4 Slim project or model in his hands yet to use when it's useful. The original story was about the potential leak of that model, not that Sony was ready to release the console soon!
" h i r e m e " That's clever AF
Pretty cool, Isn't it a little too early for a slim anyway? I'll be getting one down the line though, when there really IS a slim lol.
I was at a Gamestop the other day, and I looked up to see all the consoles lined up. (consoles from this and last gen) The PS4 is already slim! http://static.trustedreview... and keep in mind the sizes of the; ###!!!POWER BRICKS!!!### Even the Wii and WiiU have them. So by comparison the PS4 is already slim and beautifully designed! I can power my PS4 with an original Xbox power cord! Either way, WHEN the PS4 is slimmed. It will be tiny and awesome. Hopefully they actually do this design.
Sony's hardware is freaking incredible.
Except psTV...first I thought wooow so small, then I saw the powerbrick...oh damn. They could have made it double the size :P Apart from that sony makes absolutely great devices
Don't you just love getting disagrees from all of your fans! They take the time to search your comments, hit the disagree button, and then offer no intelligent retort!
Haha. I do enjoy it, actually. No matter how nice you are on this site, you'll find people who don't like what you say. I love PlayStation. I love Xbox. I love Nintendo. I love PC gaming. I love playing games on my phone. I love virtual reality. I love augmented reality. I love video games. And yet...I still find people who argue and disagree with me, no matter what. Until N4G removes the bubble system, I'm afraid this will continue for all of us. I thought the bubble system was going away. I wonder how that's going. Have a "Well Said" bubble, SmokingMonkey!
Does anyone know the current draw for the PSTV? I know it takes 5V, but @ what amperage? I'm curious as to whether it could be powered off a 5V usb rail. If I ever got the time and money, I think this could be a fun project.... a SuperVita: PlayStation TV + http://www.amazon.com/GeChi... + http://www.amazon.com/RAVPo...
Of course it's a fake. Sony's likely not even ready to leak a PS4 slim this early. It'll probably be 2017 by the time that happens. The PS4's comfortably mid-sized as is. I'd be worried about cramming that much into a tiny shell this early into the generation.
Kudos to this guy, way to go and get the internet talking! Give the guy a PR job Sony!
Of course its fake but its not that bad of a design for a digital only PS4. I would definitely still prefer a true PS4 slim, but a slim digital would be a nice option for those who have that choice.
A PS4 the size of a Wii I like it I`d take one.
it was pretty pbvious it was a fake from the start. as i said many times. i expect a xbone slim before a ps4. xbone is easier to slim down and it probably needs to.
I slide my PS4 up against the side of my PC. Looks clean and desk space is still there.
Some designer, practically the same as the normal one but not as Nice looking...what happened to Italian design hey, pffft.
All they can do is make it slightly more efficient in the hardware and a tiny sleeker outside. It is already pretty slim and compact as it is.
PS4 is already a slim version, I was amazed at release how polished the hardware is. It comes off as a second generation design already.
