Also, there's further support for beliefs that this is a new basic model, not the 4K-ready Neo . Wall Street Journal sources understand that there will be a "new PlayStation 4 standard model" alongside the Neo at Sony's September 7th event . While the tip is shy on details (there's no price or ship date), analysts suspect that it'll be less expensive than the $350 system you can buy today. Frankly, that's only logical. The slim PS4 certainly looks like it was subject to some cost-cutting, and Sony likely wants to close the price gap with the $300 Xbox One S as quickly as possible.
