Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced today that a 1 terabyte PlayStation 4 will be hitting the PAL region on 15 July 2015. This model is being marketed as the Ultimate Player Edition targeting gamers who like to download a lot of content.
Offering twice the storage of the existing PS4, you’ll be able to download more of the games you love to your PS4, extend your play with more great add-on content and save and share even more of your best gaming highlights.
However, what SCEE didn’t announce are the design changes of the new PS4 model. According to this Facebook post by PlayStation Asia, the new PS4 model will have 10% less weight and 8% less power consumption, a matte finish design, and the Power and Eject buttons were changed from the touch sensitive buttons to mechanical buttons, something we saw as well with the PS3 slim.
But PlayStation Asia did not announce any pricing or storage capacity for this new model. Could this be the 1 TB model heading to Europe? We don’t know yet. Also another thing no pricing info was announced for this model in EU yet, while SCEA has yet to announce anything about the new model.
