New PlayStation 4 Models in Development, 1TB Hard Drive Included
Sony is apparently gearing up for two new versions of the PlayStation 4, one of them will be coming with a bulkier, 1TB hard drive.
DualShockers reports that the Federal Communications Commission has certified a new PlayStation 4 model that will be having two variants of it. According to the FCC's documents, this new PlayStation 4 model's variants are numbered CUH-1215A and CUH-1215B. So what's the big difference between these variants and the current PlayStation 4 unit available on the market? It's most likely its inner workings. Don't expect this to be a PlayStation 4 Slim or anything like that, but simply a new version with some slightly changed hardware. In particuar, the CUH-1215B will contain a 1TB hard drive. The CUH-1215A will contain the standard 500GB hard drive. Also mentioned in the FCC's certification is a testing kit numbered DUH-T1200AA.
Based on the documents' details, the dimensions of the new console are exactly the same, which suggests this new PS4 will most likely look the same as before (maybe with a new paint scheme), as its internal hardware components have been slightly altered. The PS4 power source has been switched to a 230 watts unit, down from 250 watts. Likewise, the amperage of the system has been reduced to 2.3-0.95 amps (originally 2.5-1.15 amps). Lastly, the PS4's weight is going to be slightly decreased by a little over half a pound.
While we're certainly wondering what else is special about this new PS4 model, we're most likely going have to wait until Sony's presentation at E3 until we get a more definitive announcement about these two mysterious products.
