Playstation 4 Slim Release Date, Price Announced Officially

Share

The Playstation Neo, also referred to as the PS4 Neo or PS4K, will be launching this September 7 at the Playstation Theater in New York City. The company is also set to launch its PlayStation VR headset on October 13.

When does the PlayStation Neo event start?

Which new PS4 version is it, no one knows.

The current PS4 can generally be had for around $349.99.

Microsoft's Xbox One S is also "primarily for gaming" and it plays Ultra HD Blu-rays just fine.

In regards to the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Neo, the slim is a thinner and more affordable version that comes with a tweaked DualShock controller. This would obviously be a good time to share some more details.

In the run-up to the official announcement, however, an interesting image has popped up online on what is said to be the PlayStation 4 Forever Edition. Those waiting for a more powerful version of the PlayStation 4 should probably hold out for PlayStation Neo, which is a device that has at least been confirmed to exist by Sony. Pricing and release date remain a mystery.

Of course, a slew of new games are expected to be announced, including some 4K titles, but it will be interesting to see the VR games the company introduces.

PS4 Pro will cost $399 and hit stores on November 10. With the accessory key to Sony's virtual reality plans and the new systems, it would make sense for Sony to devote some time to PSVR so close to launch. Perhaps a few more exclusive games?

Sony is yet to officially announce the PS4 Slim, but that hasn't stopped some crafty people from doing an extensive teardown of the new console. Join us at live.playstation.com today September 7, starting at 12:00pm Pacific / 3:00pm Eastern.

So what can you expect when you tune into the live-stream and watch the announcement?
