That looks really cheap console form factor wise. Hope the controller issues are fixed though.

If the console was in the UAE, there would be a stiker like this on the bottom right:

Starz Play is only available in the UAE, so the box in the thread has to be fake. And before someone says "UAE is PAL" UAE box if I recall also has a UAE sticker on the package which this does not.
Hmm valid points :O The plot thickens

I think we know there is plenty of stock to to their announced shipment numbers. I mean you can imagine Sony will fly all the reg PS4's on the selves withing 6 months but that's fantasy imo

PSVR will take up shelf space and has it's own library of games that takes up sehlfspace.
Shipped numbers from the April to June period without knowing how many of those they sold worldwide?
We don't know about the PS4 stock levels worldwide, only detail about this has been a few japanese retailers warning about possible shortages of the system in Japan.
There is no objective problem in launching a Slim, a more powerful PS4 model and the PSVR. Slim is replacement for the current 500GB PS4, Neo will be the premium model, PSVR will play its own game and will be more like an add-on. I think you're making a problem where there really isn't.

According to Foxconn leak Neo is just in production, mass producing 5k-6k unit everyday. I think spec is final.
Also, slim have been produce over 3 months now.
If all of this adds up. Slim goes on sale very soon then. Neo most likely launches about a month after the sept 7th reveal.

Assuming this is real, it's going to be really hard for me to decide between this and Neo... Damnit.

I feel bad for OG owners of this is real though.

It's always funny to see GAF scrambling for evidence that something is fake

However you dress it up, 500Gb isn't big enough in 2016.
It's not big enough for you, or us on GAF that buy lots of games per year.

To the guy that only plays the yearly refresh of madden/fifa/cod and the occasional GTA, 500gb is plenty of space.

We need to start to understand that GAF demographic is vastly different than the world at large.

What's the current average attach rate for psd? 10,12 games? Not every game goes up to 50gb.

Because HDD's are cheap, just like RAM. yet when you go and get a $400 Win10 laptops at a retailer it has 4GBS of ram and 500 to <500GB HDDs.
Being cheap doesn't mean that the manufacturer will opt for a bigger/better option. Damn, Apple still sell 16gb iPhones, and to me that's much worse than 500gb consoles.

If this choice is making costumers happy they will buy it. The price is (almost) always the most important factor, and if Sony can get away with 500gb ps4 selling like hotcakes there's no reason to up the base offering.

If you read comments on here you'll realize how scary this is for many people. They would rather pay more to have the extra space already there.
That's why normally there's a "premium" sky that you can buy with added space and/or more controllers.

The console and controller are not center on the box and it's driving me nuts.

It's plenty if you don't hoard games on your harddrive for the 0.172% you might replay them anytime soon. I coped just fine for nearly 3 years. Only since my daughter has started playing loads of kids games have I had to upgrade. As she flicks between them all the time.

How will they have 4 different products .
Do you know when Sony is bringing out Neo ?
As i said you have no idea how much of the OG PS4 stock it left .
They could be all gone by the time Neo comes out .
Sony said the NEO is this year. So yes, there WILL be 4 devices.

PS4 reg stock will not be gone before the Nov. Look at how it's selling now, it'd have to sell batman levels with a price drop to $199.

So again, where are the power buttons and the HDD drive supposed to go?

They switched to actual buttons for the more recent iterations of PS4, why go back to buttonless now?

Greener pastures.
I think it looks fine. Basically same design idea as current ps4 but simpler. Makes sense for a slim model.

If this were to turn out real, I think it would compliment the Neo nicely. Small, inexpensive, simple looking slim that performs identically to the current model and also the Neo probably looking more similar to the launch model with a few changes. I see no need for three models like Microsoft is doing.

Looks plausible.

Clarification: Regarding 3 models, I was referring more to the people complaining that the slim ps4 doesnt seem to include 4k output. Functionally it would be identical to the launch ps4, as opposed to Microsoft's 3 tiers.
