Skinny, cheap and still as powerful.
It would of been a no brainer if they didn't remove the optical output, something that has been a standard since the freaking PS2. And how much money they'll save from removing it? Like 50 cents? Nowhere near the $15 that would of cost them the inclusion of a UHD drive.
15 dollars for a uhd drive?? Yeah good luck
Haven't used optical since 2007. No need for it. Stop complaining troll.
Well i do use it with my 7.1 head phones, n probably he does too, so u are the troll cause u asume that nobody uses it just because u dont
If Sony sell another 20mill PS4S consoles over the remainder of this gen say over two to three years, thats a saving of £10mill, it all adds up in the end.
By trying to sound smart you sound all opposite..
Exactly what it is. It's a fantastic console.
So exactly what does it give that you can't get from a launch PS4 that makes it a no brainer? I can understand that if I was a new PS4 owner Slim would probably be a good choice. But, I don't know why an existing PS4 owner would go and buy one when HDR will be patched into their existing console (Which I think is very good that Sony are doing).
I don't think the Slim is really meant for existing PS4 owners.
It is crazy. I was in Best Buy and people were trading in their reg PS4s for $120 and I'm like that is a while to give it up till the PS4P comes out but no they were trading in for the Slim... I was like you know it really doesn't have any upgrades why not just trade in for the pro in a couple months, they didn't care and just wanted it cause it was new...
Launch PS4s won't be available once they get rid of the stock. Which is why the Slim is a fantastic option for new PS4 owners who are on a budget. I believe you didn't understand what i was trying to say. @Ny You got that right. The meaningful upgrade for current PS4 owners is the PS4 Pro. @TF A lot of people do that when a new model comes out. The good thing about that it that it's still a sale for Sony. And the other side of that is there will be a flood of cheap used PS4s on the market which will future fuel PS4 software sales.
I dont understand the hate. Seems a very sleek console and not standing out to much. Also dedicated gamers who need a new console will probably prefer the Pro which is good value for the price so they dont need to 'hate' this one.
To be fair most people that complain are the ones who want to watch UHD Movies on the device. So far I* haven't seen any gamers complain about the games for Slim almost all of them claim that the slim will provide a great gaming experience just like it's older brother the Standard PS4.
Ive seen many complains about its purported 'ugliness' which I dont get either haha I think pictures dont do it justice tbh
To be fair, most of the people complaining about the UHD are xbox players just because it's something xbox has that playstation doesn't. They don't even have 4k tvs.
A great review ! But it is something to remind of.
Strange this is a no brainer yet there's tons of hate for the Pro. I'd rather get the Pro, myself. Maybe the hate has been more equal and I'm just not seeing it. Really there shouldn't be any IMO as they're both going to be great
Only hate amongst Xbox people that are falling further behind
A "no-brainer" is exactly what Andrew house called the people who buy it lol. The pspro is for the gamer with a brain.
For new buyers its a no brainer.. Its smaller, quieter, cheaper, less power consumption, and has the newer dual shock 4.. The optical port is gone but not too many people use that.. If they do, im sure most of them have a PS4 already.
