New PlayStation 4 "Slim" Leaked


Sony has scheduled a media event for September 7th where the company is expected to unveil an upgraded version of the PlayStation 4 – sadly for Sony, the tech world will focus on a different company that day. A fresh report says that the Japanese tech giant has actually two new gaming consoles in the works, and a leak shows us the first images with one of them.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Sony will unveil a new standard PS4 model in early September alongside the high-end version PlayStation 4 Neo we’ve been waiting for. The standard model will be slimmer and lighter than the current PS4 console, which has already been discontinued. Apparently, Sony has cut production of the PS4 ahead of the September news conference where its PlayStation business will be the star of the show.

Sony already confirmed in June that a high-end PS4 Neo was on the way, but did not reveal that it also planned to refresh the standard model.

Macquarie Securities analyst Damian Thong told the Journal that the new standard model should be slimmer and less expensive, expecting the price of the new console to go below $350. The slimmed down PS4 model should compete directly against the redesigned Xbox One S.


The Journal’s report seems to be confirmed by leaked images (above) that show what appears to be a slimmer PS4 model, as spotted in an online auction, which is now removed.

Destiny: The Collection Has Finally Been Announced


Activision and Bungie have announced Destiny: The Collection, a collection for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One including Destiny and expansions Expansion I: The Dark Below, Expansion II: House of Wolves, The Taken King, and the upcoming Rise of Iron all on one disc for $59.99. It’s due out alongside Rise of Iron on September 20.

The collection will also include a Level 40 Character Boost, and pre-orders will include the black-and-silver “Iron Gjallarhorn Rocket Launcher” for use in the game.

For players who have already started playing Destiny on a last-gen system, referred to by Bungie as a "legacy" console, they can upgrade to The Collection for $40, but only until January 31, 2017. This discounted upgrade is only offered digitally and if you own The Taken King. Your character will thankfully move forward with you, but you cannot switch platform families.


PlayStation 4 System Update 4.00 Sneak Peek


UI Refresh

We’ve made a lot of adjustments and improvements to PS4’s main user interface. That includes some changes you may notice right away, like new system backgrounds and a revised What’s New tab, to smaller changes like updated popup notifications and redesigned system icons. As a whole, it all adds up to a more refined and easy to use UI. The overall look and feel of the UI remains the same — it just has a fresh coat of paint.

Quick Menu

As you know, pressing and holding the PS button on your DualShock 4 brings up the Quick Menu. We’ve overhauled this menu to make it faster and easier to use. One big change is that the menu now only covers a portion of the screen, meaning you don’t need to leave gameplay entirely.

We’ve added several new items to the Quick Menu, letting you quickly get info without having to back to the home screen. You can see the online status of your friends, and shortcuts to quickly access your Party, Favorite Groups, Communities, and more. You can also customize the Quick Menu, removing or adding items as you see fit.

Share Menu

We’ve given a similar overhaul to the Share Menu, which appears once you press the Share button on your DualShock 4. Like the Quick Menu, it only covers a portion of the screen. It will save the last social network you shared video clips or screenshots to, making the process of sharing a screenshot or video a bit faster and more streamlined.

You can also upload longer video clips to Twitter (was 10 seconds, now up to 140 seconds).

Folders & Library Organization

One of the big requests we get is for more options to organize content on PS4. With this update, we’re adding functionality to create folders on PS4’s content launcher and Library. This will help collect your favorite games and select apps in one place for quick and easy access.

We’re also making some pretty big changes to the Library. We’ve added a new tab called Purchased, which will show all of the content you own — games, applications, demos, and betas you’ve participated in. As a result, the Games and Applications tabs focus on content currently installed on your system. This should help de-clutter your library, and make it faster to find the content you’re looking for.

There are some new sorting tools for your Library as well. You’ll be able to sort content by purchase date or install status, and search for specific games and apps via text input.

Trophy Improvements

This update brings the ability to view the Trophy offline. You’ll see a new “offline mode” option if your system is unable to connect to the network, letting you view your entire Trophy collection without an Internet connection.

We’ve also added a button that will let you view the content of a Hidden Trophy. The Trophy will still be hidden by default, but you can now choose to show the Trophy name and info.

Lastly, we’re changing the icons that show how rare a Trophy is. Instead of four boxes that fill, the icon looks like a pyramid with the ultra-rare Trophies at the top.

User Profile

We’ve updated the look of the User Profile, making it easier to see relevant info for a player at-a-glance. For instance, you can now see your Trophy progress compared with another player right from their profile. You can also add a background image to your own profile — perhaps a screenshot you took in one of your favorite games.
