Holding out for PS4 Slim release date

By Daniel Chubb - Sep 1, 2014

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.

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.

    Not entirely on subject here, but history has shown that game systems will usually make a slimmer, shinier, and more bug free model once the sales slow down of the original launched system. This is one main reason I have not bought either system. For example: I knew that if I bought a system at launch, that there were going to be issues: bugs, not enough games, etc. My main thought was the fact that I knew that special edition models would follow once the bigger titled games came out: Modern Warfare XBox One decal edition. It is nice to say that him or her has the original version and it may even have some value in the future for having one. However, if your not the best financially (which most of us our not) then buying the original might be awesome, but then the following, “OMG, the slimmer version. I must trade my original system for half the value for this new slim”; then comes the, “OMG, Halo 7 special edition decal Xbox One! I must have.” A person eventually will spend a lot of money. I had bought the Xbox Elite bundle in 2010. Then a few months later, Xbox Slim comes out. WTF!! I was heated. Built in Wifi, sensor buttons, cooler looking, and kinect ready. Then I bought my son the Black version of the Wii bundle; then it would seem out of no where, a Red version is release. Which was so much cooler looking. So from past experience of my own, I will simply wait. I may miss all the great times that those who have bought the original Xbox One or PS4 are having, and I may even fall victim to buying one of these original launch consoles. If I can help it though, I will most definitely wait for the slim versions of these consoles, and if patients is strong within, I will wait for the special edition decal ones as well. Anyone with some since may already feel that a Gears of War Special edition will launch, and more than likely at $400 to $500. I hope I can wait for that!

      usally slimmer versions have less memory which is a big no no for the 50+ mb the most basic storage games take up, especially when they include music and video data storage later down the line….
