As expected, the smaller version of the original PS4 features a few aesthetic changes, including rounded corners, and new positions for the eject and power buttons, which are now mechanical rather than touch-sensitive. It’s smaller than the PS4 and features a matte-black design, rather than the shiny surface of the original. The glowing light strip of the original console has also been stripped away.

The PlayStation 4 Slim is also accompanied by a brand new DualShock 4 controller. The new pad has had one small re-design, with the glowing blue light bar now situated just above the touch-pad. The d-pad buttons are also slightly more indented for a better grip.

PS4 Slim release date

As expected, the PS4 Slim will be released on September 15, 2016 in most markets, though a fair few consoles already leaked into the public domain over the last couple of weeks.

The PlayStation Meeting is currently in full swing. You can watch it live here. Sony is currently lifting the lid on another new console, codenamed PS4 Neo, as well as many other exciting announcements.
