Is this the new PlayStation 4 slim?

A quiet Sunday night goes bonkers as potential PlayStation 4 slim is outed on Gumtree.



A quiet Sunday night goes bonkers as potential PlayStation 4 slim is outed on Gumtree.

News broke tonight of a kind soul from Bolton offering an – as yet unannounced – PlayStation 4 slim for sale.

The listing – on – shows a new slab-like PlayStation 4 and its box sitting on a rather plush carpet.


The system is squatter, uglier and certainly slimmer than the current version of Sony’s console. It has a listing price of £295.

So is it genuine or just an elaborate hoax? If it’s the latter, consider us impressed. Here’s the original listing on Gumtree.

Sony has announced a PlayStation event on 7th September, which we assume will unveil the upgraded PlayStation 4 Neo SKU. If this console is proved genuine it appears that Sony are following Microsoft’s example with a smaller and most likely cheaper revision of their current hardware, too

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
