Rumors and talk of a slimmer PS4 has been a common topic of discussion around the gaming community, since the consoles launch in late 2013. Images have now surfaced of what seems to be, a slimmed down model of Sony’s 8th gen console.
In this photo above the supposed slimmed down console is hidden behind the codename Monolith. This is the meaning of the word monolith, courtesy of Wikipedia. “A Monolith is a geological feature consisting of a single massive stone or rock, such as some mountains, or a single large piece of rock placed as, or within, a monument or building.”
In this comparison photo above you can clearly see that it’s considerably smaller than the current PS4 models. Although, the design is very sleek, compact and can be mistaken for just a media streaming device as it greatly resembles one. If this model is legit, I’m not surprised by it’s size, as we should expect to see similar console sizes in future generations to come.
This image shows us what’s going on with the power and eject buttons. As you can see the touch sensitive buttons have been removed and replaced with push in buttons reminiscent to the PS3 when Sony designed the first models of the PS3 slim.
As seen in the very first photo, the disk slot seems to be positioned in a very interesting place. It’s located on the left side of the console. This is somewhat innovative and would us give gamers a brand new experience by placing our disks through the side of the console.
In conclusion, I think the overall design is very interesting, innovating but really simple at the same time. If Sony comes forward and claims this project as being real, I would not have any issues with the directions they’re going to take in building it. Please remember these leaked images of the supposed PlayStation 4 slim are only rumors and have NOT been confirmed by Sony. Readers please take the information and these images with a grain of salt.
