Earlier this month, Sony confirmed that they would be hosting an event of some type for the PlayStation brand. This event is set to take place on September 7th at 3pm EST in New York, and that's about all we know for sure. Rumours have been flying high these past few weeks talking about what Sony intends to reveal at this event, and we just might have gotten a solid leak to confirm our suspicions.
A few hours ago, pictures began to surface on Twitter showing a thinner, rounder PlayStation 4 model, dubbed the PS4 Slim. These pictures come courtesy of Twitter user @shortmaneighty2 after he allegedly purchased the system from a local retailer after finding it on a classified listings website called Gumtree. The retailer also claims that the console is set to release in about 3 weeks which lines up with the Sony event.
As you can see in the album above, the PlayStation 4 Slim is a lot more rounded than the original PlayStation 4 system. It is also significantly smaller which makes it look a lot more low profile than the original PlayStation 4. The buttons on the front panel have also been relocated into the lower lip of the PlayStation 4 and the disc drive seems to have shifted over to the left side of the console.
Now it's hard to think that someone would go to these lengths just to troll the internet with a fake PS4 Slim, but it's entirely possible. The PlayStation event is still scheduled for September 7th so we'll hopefully receive confirmation that this is in face the real deal. What do you think? Do you think this is real?
