Sleek ‘Glacier White’ PS4 Slim Available Later This Month

Sony Unveils New “Glacier White” PS4 Slim In celebration of the winter season Sony has unveiled a new PS4 Slim, calling it the “Glacier White” edition. This is the first color variant for the PS4 Slim and it will be available later this month! This “Glacier White” version will be available as a 500GB model in Europe on January 24th for £259. This is just one day after a 1TB model is released in Japan on January 23rd. Japan will also have the 500GB model available as well. Some might recall this is the same color variant that came out for the original PS4 as well. Sony has not mentioned any other regions for release, so it is unknown when or if the variant will launch in North America. It is likely that it is only a matter of time before this is announced. The price for this “Glacier White” model is the exact same as the Jet Black version and both come with a dualshock controller of the same color. With this newest announcement, fans have been calling for the same color variant for the PS4 Pro, however it is unclear if this is something even in the works at…

Sony: PS4 Is the World’s Best Selling Console From 2014 Through 2016

In their latest trailer announcing the upcoming Glacier White PlayStation 4 Slim, PlayStation Europe revealed that PS4 is the world’s best selling console from 2014 through 2016, finishing at #1 in each of those years. The fine print adds, “Based on sales of all consoles from [January 1, 2014] to [December 31, 2016].” In Sony’s previous ads touting PS4 as “the world’s best selling console,” they didn’t say what time period was being measured. Since launch in November 2013, more than 53.4 million PS4 consoles have been sold, with 6.2 million of those happening between November 20, 2016 and January 1, 2017. Sony expects PS4 shipments to reach 60 million by the end of the fiscal year (March 31,2017). Back in December, an analyst suggested that lifetime Xbox One sales would fail to reach 30 million by the end of 2016, meaning PS4 could now be over 23 million units ahead. The Wii U, meanwhile, is no longer in production and finished with lifetime shipments of about 13.6 million. Do you think PS4 will be the #1 selling console in 2017 as well?

Michael Pachter Claims PS4 Price Will Drop to $199 in 2017

Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has turned in his 2017 industry predictions ahead of the new year, claiming that Sony will reduce the asking price of the standard PS4 (i.e. the Slim model) to $199 by December 31, 2017. Word comes by way of GamesIndustry.biz, which has pulled together a handful of experts — SuperData’s Joost van Dreunen, EEDAR’s Patrick Walker, IHS Markit’s Piers Harding-Rolls, and Kantan Games’ Dr. Serkan Toto — to offer up a series of forecasts and estimations regarding Nintendo Switch, virtual reality, and much more. Among them is Pachter, who led with the prediction that Sony will slash the PS4 price some time next year. Per GamesIndustry: “PS4 price goes to $199. I think Sony is intent upon keeping Microsoft in distant second, and expect a price cut for standard PS4 (slim) to $199 before year-end 2017.” For the sake of perspective, the PS4 Slim currently retails at around $249.99, with many of those entry-level bundles also including a game in the vein of, say, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. As such, don’t be too surprised if Pachter is actually on point with this one. What do our readers make of Pachter’s forecast? Indeed do you think a PS4 price…

On Amazon, $269 gets you the Uncharted console bundle, plus a year of PlayStation Plus, which you were going to want to buy anyway.

Xbox One Beats PS4 Sales For The 4th Month In A Row In October

Xbox One Beats PS4 In US, UK and Australia Again For the past four months Xbox One has beat the PS4 sales in the United States, and in October, Microsoft took the victory in the United Kingdom and Australia as well. While this is considered the longest Xbox One dominance of sales since both consoles were launched 3 years ago, we have to wonder if the PS4 will make a huge comeback with the release of the PS4 Pro. With the beginning of the holiday season and Black Friday coming up later this month it will be interesting to see where the sales lie. Let the console competition continue! The sale information is based on data gathered by the NPD Group and was shared with Microsoft whose vice president, Mike Nichols, had this to say about it, “Thanks to the passion of Xbox fans worldwide and their continued excitement for Xbox One S, Xbox One was once again the best-selling console in October in the U.S., U.K. and Australia.” Microsoft maintains that the number and quality of games available to Xbox One is driving the uptick in sales.

PSLS Help Desk – How to Upgrade Your PS4 Hard Drive

When the PS4 was first announced, we were all stoked about the size of the hard drive. We didn’t need too much more than 500GB for the PS3, so surely that will be enough for this new console! Oh how foolish we all were. The PS4 games take a megaton of space, even if you’re using discs. It doesn’t take long before you’re playing Sophie’s Choice and determining what must be uninstalled to make room for the new shiny toy. We thought Sony learned their lesson, but then they announced the PS4 Slim with a 500GB hard drive as well. Even the PS4 Pro only has 1 TB of space available! Considering how much space these 4K and HDR compatible games will undoubtedly take, Sony still hasn’t learned their lesson fully. Oh well. At least you can upgrade the hard drives. Before you tackle this task, you will need the following items and the realization that this is a far easier process than you think. Even if you’ve never held a screwdriver in your hands before, I promise you can do this DIY job. And you’ll feel like you can take on any DIY project after completing this one (but please don’t)….
