Arriving on store shelves this month: new slim PS4 system featuring a 1TB internal HDD for $299.99 MSRP.
Amazing just beautiful
Gotta release a new SKU for no reason when your competitors are launching new systems in the same year haha
This SKU is replacing the 500GB one. Also I'm sure this SKU will sell really well.
Yea it was a logical business decision and a good one. Should help them compete against the Scorpio & Switch a bit, although I don't think anything is stopping the Switch's momentum for a while. There is room for all 3 companies to succeed and do well, and decisions like this are part of that.
If it's replacing the 500GB slim model then why is the price $299 instead of $249? That'd make their replacement $50 more than what's available on the market right now. Not to mention puts PS4 Slim at $50 more than Xbox One S.
Want to know what's funny about your comment? The weak, PS4 Slim will outsell "The most powerful console in the world" by several million units.
Yeah right? Because they're tracking PS4 sales separately from the Slim model. /s
Yeah because launching new SKUs is like a 5 minute decision by the higher ups. I swear, some people here seem to have no common sense.
Yea 1tb as the standard ps4 what a horrible idea
At this time, I often ask myself, "who doesn't own a PS4 yet?" Then I remember that a console generation usually has the lead console break 100 million.
Aw shoot I knew I should've held out longer on getting one
Just sell it now
I'll just have to buy a bigger HDD
Amazing! I think Sony will also announce a price drop for the PS4Pro to counter the Scorpio at E3. Good times ahead!
I wouldn't be surprised if Sony announces the Pro for $349.99 at E3. Well, I hope so, since I have two brothers that I game with regularly that are looking to upgrade to the Pro.
I'm hoping for a price cut on it myself. It would be a 4k TV and pro investment and I'm more than happy with my current set up that I can wait til later in the year.
I think that depends on if microsoft announces price.
Actually, I was just browsing for cheap Slims...and, you can't get any...really. Cheapest on Amazon is 250 or so, Gamestop doesn't even have any below 269....I wanted a cheap small I can take for travels. But well, if I can't get one for $199...I might as well get me a 1TB for 299... I was hoping it would be dropping in price, but nothing really indicates this will happen any time soon. Not even with Scorpio releasing. And with 50+M sold, they really have no need in doing that. With a 299 Slim, the Pro won't drop any time soon, either.
Isn't that what I just said? $255...
I need a cheaper pro .. trying so hard to hold off on zero dawn till I get a pro
Horizon looks and plays absolutely great on the OG PS4 too. Truly a feat Guerrilla Games did with Horizon and why I believe game engine, optimization is always welcomed in a game. It really shows. However, when you do play Horizon Zero Dawn on a proper 4K HDR TV on the pro though, it'll simply make an already great looking game more enjoyable/immersive. I've experienced both already, since I still have my OG PS4 my younger brother uses now. You're in for an amazing experience either way, but definitely go with the Pro and 4K HDR TV combo if you can.
Thanks... I broke! Picking it up today lol
That's awesome! A proper 10-bit HDR 4K panel? Yup. You're going to have a great weekend starting Friday. Enjoy!
Oh dam really?! You're in for a real treat buddy. What 4K HDR TV did you end up going with?
I just purchased a Sony Bravia 43" X800D about 2 weeks ago. Down loaded zero on PSN. I'm going to try it late Friday. Between work and volunteering I'm super busy. Sony hasn't let me down yet, so I'm sure it's going to be good. My favorite Sony exclusive this gen is until dawn
Should have launched with 1TB, 500GB is a joke.
They did in Europe
