Sony announces a lighter PS4 and a new 1TB console 

Sony has announced a 1TB PS4 model due for release next month, as well as a new lighter and less power hungry 500GB model.


The 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition launches before the end of June in Japan, and comes to Europe July 15. As for the 500GB model, it also launches in Japan at the end of June. Sony has not yet revealed a date for North America and Europe.

The new 500GB model is 10 percent lighter than the current version and uses 8 percent less energy. It will feature a matte finish on the HDD cover and comes in black and white.

The 1TB model will continue to use original console architecture, the platform holder told Eurogamer.

We're still waiting on retailers to price the console and will update as soon as we know more.
