This week we got our first glimpse at one of Sony’s surprises for their September 7th PlayStation Meeting as the new PlayStation 4 Slim popped up on sale on both Gumtree and eBay. Both Eurogamer and Kotaku covered the story and one report from Eurogamer visited the seller at his home to verify the authenticity of the new PS4 Slim!
Has this ruined one of Sony’s surprise or does this clear the decks for the unveiling of the new PlayStation, currently codenamed Neo?
With only a few weeks away until the PlayStation Meeting can Sony protect its other secret announcements and not spring anymore leaks?
