PS4 Slim to be announced at Sony September event

So some rumors and speculation have been buzzing around that Sony would be releasing a newer slimmer version of the PS4, much like how Microsoft announced a slimmer Xbox One in September. All it took to confirm that this was true was someone from Digital Foundry just driving down to a guy’s house who had the slim PS4 and taking some pictures.

Anyhow, it’s not surprising that Sony would announce a slimmer console to compete with Microsoft, though in turn the same question needs to be asked that many people asked before: Is there a point to announcing this version of the console now with the Neo being so close to release? It might have been better if the slimmer version was released a year ago prior to there being any information towards a newer console. Some would buy both, but for most consumers who want just one singular console who don’t want to blow hundreds of dollars on new hardware, is this just a waste of plastic and parts?

What do you say to describe a guy who only sleeps 4 days out of the week? Probably a lot but if you ever see an obscure story about some kind of food product, indie game or something that doesn't quite fit on this site, you can (almost) guarantee this guy wrote it. Whether or not he was awake while it was written is anybody's guess.
