PS4 Pro Slim Reportedly Set to Debut Soon but You Shouldn't Buy; Here's Why!

Close

Reports have pointed at another PS4 console release this year. The alleged PS4 Pro Slim is said to be much thinner than the Pro. Is that it?

Sony is gearing up for a big PS VR, PS4 and games exhibition at E3 in June but a new rumor suggests that the event may not all be about showcasing the virtual reality experience on PlayStation consoles. It is reported that a PS4 Pro Slim is on the way, according to PlayStation Lifestyle, and it will be getting a thinner design to replace what's already thin.

A slimmer console, however, doesn't mean a much better one. To recall your memory, PS4 and PS4 Slim don't have many differences. In fact, a thinner case could mean that there's a catch. For instance, the PS4 Slim lacks of optical audio port, Digital Trends reported.

Another minor change on PS4 Slim is the redesigned DualShock controller while having the same 8 GB GDDR5 RAM but the hard drive in PS4 Slim indeed receives a gain, up to 1 TB.

If the PS4 Pro Slim comes to fruition, it is expected to have its outward appearance revamped. A new look, however, should be supported by better hardware setup under the hood. A Dolby Atmos experience could give the PS4 Pro Slim a boost in the audio but this is merely a wishlist at this moment.

Slimming down the chassis could also mean a few sacrifices must be made albeit at this point, there is no detail on what could be added or replaced.

Sony should introduce more functions on the PS4 Pro Slim if the company wants to attract more potential consumers. Ultra HD Blu Ray is also expected as the current 4 Pro doesn't support. Microsoft Xbox One S is already ahead of the PS4 Pro in this matter.

Sony will be joining the other major brands in the gaming industry at E3 2017.
