Hmmmm, let's put this one in the 'we're not convinced but maybe' pile. According to comments from Macquarie Securities analyst Damian Thong, Sony could well release a PlayStation 4 Slim as well as the recently confirmed PlayStation 4K - or 'Neo', as it's more commonly referred to. If there's truth to this, then it would mean that both Sony and Microsoft plan on introducing refined, smaller versions of their current-gen consoles in the relatively near future.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Thong thinks the Japanese company could unveil its reworked system at "a game show in September". It's unclear whether Thong has inside information with regards to Sony's plans for this year's Tokyo Game Show, but it's an interesting comment all the same. Needless to say, the PlayStation maker hasn't bothered responding to these potential claims.
Could you see Sony revealing a PS4 Slim later this year? Would you be interested in a Slim knowing that the PS4K can't be too far away? Scratch your head in the comments section below.
