Sony Interactive Entertainment releases slimmer PS4

Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) today announced that a new slimmer and lighter PlayStation 4 (CUH-2000 series) computer entertainment system with a 500GB HDD is now available at suggested retail price of PHP17,300.

The internal architecture of the new PS4 system has been revamped, reducing its volume by more than 30% compared to the previous models and reducing its weight by 25% and 16% compared to the first (CUH-1000 series) and current (CUH-1200 series) models respectively. Also, the new PS4 system is more energy efficient, as the power consumption has been cut by more than 34% and 28% compared to the very first and current models.

The physical design of the PlayStation 4 doesn't look closer to its predecessor. It has curved edges compared to the former's pointy and sharp design; while the I/O sockets enjoy their new placements. The rubber feet are also redesigned to PlayStation's infamous X, square, circle, and triangle buttons.

Furthermore, looking ahead to the future of imaging technology, all PS4 systems including the new slimmer model and PlayStation 4 Pro will support HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging technology, which enables the reproduction of brightness and darkness while realizing a much wider range of colors. Users who own an HDR-compatible TV will be able to enjoy supported games and other entertainment content with visuals that are more realistic, strikingly vivid and truer to the way the human eye sees the real world.

According to Sony Interactive Entertainment, there are two PlayStation 4 bundle sets available:

  1. PlayStation 4 NBA 2K17 Bundle Pack
    Release Date: September 24, 2016
    SRP: PhP 18,990
  2. PlayStation 4 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Bundle Pack

    SRP: PhP 18,990
