Sony PS4 Slim review: quieter, cooler, thinner


Quieter, cooler and thinner, the PlayStation 4 Slim plays it safe with surprisingly satisfying results

Great gaming platform ; Good value for money ; Controller could be best ever ; Same amazing gaming library

Optical audio port removed ; Still not sure on aesthetics

Sony PS4 review: The entry-level PlayStation 4 still thrills


The slimmed-down update to the original PS4 is affordable and a great entry point into Sony's exclusive games and third-party ones too.

Small and easy to hide out of the way ; DualShock 4 controller has USB communication ; Easy to swap out the internal hard drive for expansion ; Capable of HDR gaming ; There's some superb games

Not the prettiest machine on the market ; No optical digital audio output ; A mere 500GB HDD ; No 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player ; Some Xbox exclusives are tempting ; Not silent in operation

The PS4 is an affordable games console that's capable of playing many games – many in HDR with superb graphics. It might not have the resolution boost or power of the PS4 Pro, but it's a great entry-level machine.

The PlayStation 4 Slim is real (unless it's an elaborate hoax)


Ahead of Sony's September 7 event, people appear to have gotten their hands on an unannounced PlayStation 4 successor.

PlayStation 4 Slim review: Wait for the PS4 Pro if you can


In a vacuum, the PlayStation 4 Slim is a great console. It's smaller, quieter and much more portable than the original PS4. But unless you need a new console right now and are on a strict budget, there's no reason to buy it when the higher-powered PS4...

More compact than before ; Quieter performance ; Even more portable than before ; No more distracting LED strip

Lacks the UHD Blu-ray drive of the similarly priced Xbox One S ; Pack-in DualShock 4 controller still has abysmal battery life ; Only available with a 500GB disk

Sony’s smaller PlayStation 4 Slim launches September 15


The Sony PlayStation 4 Slim is smaller, quieter, more efficient—but has the same three-year-old hardware sitting inside.

Great product, best place to buy.


Runs really smoothly and quietly, great console. Great value bundle including the game and, most importantly, the John Lewis guatentee. Without a doubt the best customer service anywhere, and a must for expensive tech. Definitely the best place to buy.
