It seems some gamers are still hoping to see the PS4 Slim release date within the next year and some bloggers even try to predict its launch window from previous hardware patterns, which leads to wild guesses like October 2015. We touched on the chance of the slimmer console coming in 2014 at the start of this year and this is obviously not going to happen now.
While the price has dropped slightly, especially during events like Labor Day, for some it is the PlayStation 4 in a slimmer model they desire.
We have included a few tweets below that reveal how some people are going to wait until the PS4 Slim release date, rather than purchase the current model. Personally, we think there’s more need for an Xbox One Slim considering how much bigger it is when compared to the PS4.
still hopin' for a slim model of the PS4/Xbone that's a little cheaper cuz that would be nice and I need to save all the space I can get

PS4 finally has games. I might get one after the inevitable price drop+slim model is released.

Im most likely going to get a PS4 when a slim model comes out. We all know thats going to happen in the future.

It’s clear some people agree with us in regard to how thin the PS4 is already, so a Slim wouldn’t be needed anytime soon unless we are talking about the Xbox One.

Do you think Sony and Microsoft should launch slimmer models of their new consoles next year? Or, is it fair to say PS4 is slim enough as it is and the need for something slimmer is best left for Xbox One? Leave your thoughts with what you want to see below.
