In a different thread same guy also talks about PSP production. /shrug Someone linked it before in this thread.
He says that the more veteran employees are working on a PSP-like device.

I would guess NX, but it's way too early for a handheld due in 2017 to be in the production line already.

If this is real, which I suspect it may be or at least something similar to this is real, this will absolutely be a must have for me if the price is $200 or close. I've been waiting for this just like I waited for the slim ps3.

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.
Sony:
Launch PS4 (with one revision to remove the gloss)
Slim PS4
PS4 Neo

Microsoft:
Launch Xbox One (with one revision to remove the gloss)
Xbox One S (the slim)
Xbox Scopio

Both companies have three models.

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?
The HDD could be on the side, like on PS3.

Definitely looks convincing. Though I'm still skeptical because anyone can photoshop a box and have it printed, after the NX "leak" I wouldn't be too surprised. Really if you have one then why not post a video of it out of the box and connected to a TV playing a game?

I assumed it would be a Sony product, and too soon for NX. But it'd be rather... amazing... for this to have not have been heard of at all.

I thought the point of the neo was because sliming a ps4 would cost too much. Why would they still make a slim ps4?

This is the neo
This is a new entry-level, cost-optimized SKU. Of course that one comes alon with a 500 GB HDD. Sony would even drop the logo on the cover if it would save them spending another 50 cents. So, lol at those who think that Sony goes through all the trouble of delivering a cost-optimized SKU and then put a 1 TB HDD into it. This might be optinal of course, but the bread & butter SKU will only have 500 GB.

That said, I am curious how cheap Sony can offer this one. I suppose the can ask for $299 with UHD support, but without it looks rather weak compared to XBOX One S.

I don't think people should get hung up about how a box that looks like it was designed for the UAE market have ended up in Manchester, notwithstanding the fact that SIE Europe serve the UAE.

After all, I don't think it was ever explained how the slim PS3 back in the day first ended up in the Philippines. lol.

Unless it's just a new Vita revision. Then a quick turnaround would make sense.

L2/R2 buttons, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, SD card support. The revision of my dreams :(

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.
As i said how do you know how much stock Sony has left ?
Look how it's selling from where from NPD .
That only makes up 30% of Sony WW sales .
Unless we know about Sony stock levels it could go either way .

It's not leaked because only waifu-SIM devs are making games for it and the press won't give them the time of day.#believeintrinity
