Sony recently unveiled the brand new PS4 Slim to the public in an event in New York.

Sony states that the PS4 Slim will be a standard PS4 going forward and it will replace the original console hardware in the weeks to come.

PS4 Slim Specs and Features

The PS4 Slim has its fair share leaks and news but, in the most recent unveiling, Sony had confirmed the sleeker and lighter PS4 model. The PS4 Slim will ship a redesigned DualShock 4 controller with a lightbar to better point towards the player and see notifications triggered by in-game events.

Meanwhile, the event also introduced the PS4 Pro that will feature a 4K support, a HDR technology, improved resolution, stable frame rates, a USB port in the rear, as well as a 1TB hard drive for more strong games. The PS4 Pro, which will be launched in November 10, will have a price tag of $399.
