It was revealed recently that Sony has upgraded the Playstation 4 with new parts and slight modifications to its design, nothing major like a Slim console though. A video unboxing the new variant of the Playstation 4 codenamed CUH-1200 has appeared and it’s mostly what you expect (via SegmentNext).
Check out the unboxing of the Playstation 4 CUH-1200 variant below:
The new Playstation 4 changes the console’s Glossy Hard Drive cover to Matte, the capacitive buttons to physical and a few other changes to how the console operates. Power consumption is down from 250W to 230W which is an 8% drop, tests conclude that in heavy tasks like games the power savings can be up to 18%. The Download Mode consumption is altered as well and is down to just 58W now.
The console has been released in Japan although in limited supplies, a Western release is yet to be announced.
