PS4 Slim Images Supposedly Leak
PS4 Slim

Some images of the PlayStation 4 Slim have supposedly leaked online courtesy of user shortmaneighty2.

According to Gamesradar the PS4 Slim appeared on Gumtree for auction ahead of its retail release. Heck, somehow this auction took place before Sony even had time to announce that a PlayStation 4 Slim was even in production.

The leaked images are being spread all across Twitter, with a series of images supposedly showing the new console in a home environment, including comparisons to the standard PS4.

The thing is, we can’t take these images and news at face value.

Not too long ago there were rumors and images of the Nintendo NX. Remember When those mock-ups surfaced showing a supposed NX handheld tablet on a desktop with a touchscreen.

It turned out that those NX mock-ups were actually fake.

Now some people might question, how on Earth could the images of the PS4 Slim be fake? Well, in the case of the Nintendo NX mock-ups it was actually a 3D printed case based on a 3D render.

It’s not too hard to believe that someone printed out a smaller PS4 unit based on the original unit. Given that there’s no actual confirmation that a real PlayStation 4 Slim is on the way, then it’s no surprise that someone could have customized their own slim looking for 15 minutes of media fame. Based on one of the images, the design and texture of the material looks like what’s used in 3D printers, so it’s a toss up.

Of course, there’s also the possibility that Sony has been prepping for the PS4 Neo’s launch and may have a slim version on the way to accompany the Neo in a one-two combination, similar to how Microsoft has the Xbox One and Xbox One S on the market.

Until we see some legitimate announcements from Sony then we can likely chalk this up as a fake.

  • If one wants a PS4, I think it’s best to just get the PS4 Neo to be honest.

    But the PS4 Slim, despite being smaller, doesn’t seem to look as good as the original PS4 design.

    I don’t know if it’s just me but I prefer the bulkier version of any console, don’t know why. Whenever I look at the slim version of any device the first thing that pops onto my head is “it looks flimsy and prone to overheat”. Never had a problem with shelf space either, so it could be that.

    • Slim versions have never been my cup of tea either. I usually buy stuff that fits the aesthetic of the entertainment center. If that PS4 Slim is real I certainly wouldn’t want it.

        I’m tired of companies pumping out the same thing in slightly different variations and people throwing money at them without question.
