PS4 Slim Unboxing Video Reveals New DualShock 4 Controller
PS4 Slim

Sony has been working real hard to keep people from seeing the PlayStation 4 Slim, but you can’t keep a good leaker down. The individual who managed to purchase the PS4 Slim has been making the rounds, showing off the new console to various outlets and giving gamers a look at some of the new features that Sony plans to unveil for their console in September.

All Games Delta ended up posting up a video of the unboxing after ZRZ was hit with a copyright claim from Sony after they initially posted up the unboxing video.

The re-uploaded video made its way over to Daily Motion, where the unboxing takes place over the course of just six minutes.

The PlayStation 4 Slim featured in the video is actually real and not a 3D printed replica as skeptics like myself had originally thought.

It’s a 500GB unit and you can see what the new DualShock 4 controller and console look like in the video below.

The wired headset is pulled out first, along with a look at the new DualShock 4 controller, which features a lightbar at the top of the touchpad in the middle of the controller.

The box contains the power cables, the micro-USB cable and the console itself.

The design of the PlayStation 4 Slim is not wholly remarkable, nor is it fashionably more aesthetic than the normal PS4. The matte plastic finish looks cheaper and the design is obviously far less appealing than the original.

It features rounded edges now instead of the sharper corners from the first generation asymmetrical design, and it generally has a more portable DVD-player feel to it compared to the original.

As for the new DualShock 4, the design has mostly stayed the same, save for some slight design differences. The real change is that now you can tell which player you are based on the lightbar flashing at the top of the visual touchpad instead of having to flip the controller upward to see which player you are. It’s a small but effective upgrade.

The console contains all the standard ports, all the standard features and all the standard accoutrements as the normal console… it’s just smaller.

Sony will supposedly announce the release date and the price sometime early in September. Until then, they’ll find themselves constantly hounding down all the videos and streams of the PS4 Slim like border patrol trying to keep illegal immigrants out.

    Sony seriously lost their touch after the first PS3 slim. Second PS3 slim was downright fugly. The Vita slim is nowhere near as classy looking as the original Vita and this thing just looks utterly meh.

    I might get the controller if it’s better. The current one makes my lower fingers go numb, for some reason. Never had that problem with the PS1, 2 or 3 pads.

    • I don’t play with controllers unless they have the KontrolFreek extenders on them (save for the Steam Controller, don’t use them on that) and they work quite well, without any of the discomfort brought on by the normal thumb pads.

      I originally thought the KontrolFreek stuff was gimmicky, but after using them it’s tough to use a controller without them.

    Seems kind of pointless to make a redesign of the launch version of PS4. With PS4 Neo on the way you would think more money would go that way :/
