Leaked PS4 Slim Console Confirmed to Be Legit

Watch it powering up

We knew that last night's PlayStation 4 Slim leaks were legit – you don't get that many pictures from so many different angles without some level of authenticity. But as a few people have pointed out, in this age of 3D printers you can never be too careful. Digital Foundry decided to visit the person who purchased the...

Size comparison

So, the PlayStation 4 Slim has leaked. Sony's yet to make a comment on these images just yet, but the sheer number of them taken from different angles suggests that they're almost certainly real – although nothing's legit until you hear it directly from the horse's mouth. That said, we have been in contact with someone who...

PS4 Slim Hardware Images Allegedly Leak Online

And they're very believable

There were rumours that Sony may announce a PlayStation 4 Slim alongside the upgraded Neo console, and it may just have leaked. Potentially.

There's been something unexpectedly sweet about the closure of Evolution Studios. Don't get us wrong, it's bitterly disappointing to see the developer shut down – but we're used to these kinds of stories ending badly.

Chapter 1 - Hello, Worlds

Come fly with me

I don't like to draw much attention to No Man's Sky's technical problems, undeniably present though they are, but I did find it sort of hilarious that after my initial attempt to boot the game up saw it crash, it turned out you begin the game having crash landed. It was a graceless, unintentionally brilliant moment, the software...

PS4's Completely Crushing the Competition in Germany

Sony's got almost 70 per cent market share

As we've written so many times already, Sony's dominance this generation can't be attributed solely to favourable policies or press conference clangers – it's the legwork that it's invested into Europe over the years that's doing the business. New figures coming out of Germany show that the PlayStation...

Guess who's back?

This is becoming an annual tradition now, isn't it? Sony may not be holding a press conference at Gamescom for the second year running, but at least we can rely on an uber-awkward Jim Ryan tour.
