PS4 Slim price listed by CEX as Sony struggles to contain leaked console

Sony’s as-yet unannounced PS4 Slim console has appeared on U.K.-based used goods retailer CEX.

The PS4 Slim price is listed at £380 on the company’s official website, which is how much the retailer will be flogging the system come release day. Right now, it doesn’t have any stock available, obviously, and this could simply be a placeholder.


However, CEX also confirmed that it will be offering £304 to anyone who wishes to sell their PS4 Slim console to the retailer. Regular readers may recall that CEX were also in the news a few months back for selling copies of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End ahead of release day.

PS4 Slim release date rumored for mid-September

The PS4 Slim initially leaked earlier this week when the console was sold on Gumtree. Sony is currently struggling to keep a lid on things ahead of the PS4 Slim’s formal reveal, with the console also recently appearing on eBay. 

Rumors of a slimmer PS4 model date back a few months.

According to multiple reports (which include the original Gumtree seller and also the Wall Street Journal), the PS4 Slim will be made available worldwide on September 14. The launch comes just days after Sony is expected to unveil the PS4 Neo in New York City at the PlayStation Meeting.

Sony has shipped over 40 million PS4s to date since the console’s launch in November 2013. The company still has a busy few months ahead of it, with the release of PlayStation VR pencilled in for October 13, 2016.
