PS4 Slim Out Now

The $300 system is 30 percent smaller than the previous model


Sony launches new hardware today, as the PlayStation 4 Slim has officially arrived at retailers.

The $300 system is 30 percent smaller and more energy efficient than the previous model, which is being replaced by the Slim. It sports a 500 GB hard drive and sells for €300 Euros and £260 in other markets.

One of the better bundles available now is the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End package, which comes with the system and a copy of the Naughty Dog game for $300. Go to Sony's website to see a full rundown of available packages.

The launch of the PS4 Slim comes more than a month after Microsoft released the slimmed-down Xbox One S, which also starts at $300. For more on these two consoles, check out GameSpot's comparison gallery.

Also launched this week was PS4's 4.00 update, which introduces some major changes to the look and feel of the system, while it also adds folders to help you organize content.

The PS4 Slim isn't the only system Sony will launch this year, as the PS4 Pro comes out in November. This $400 system is more powerful than the existing model and has a somewhat different design.
