PS4 Slim still shows up on eBay and CEX auction sites
Over the weekend, a PS4 Slim appeared on UK auction site Gumtree, with photos lending to its authenticity. The unannounced device sold for £ 300, and it’s now surfacing on eBay as well as the right used online retailer in the UK, CEX.
If you search for the PS4 Slim on either auction site, you might notice that there aren’t any ads for it, as Sony has hit those sites pretty hard. CEX was offering to buy the PS4 Slim for £ 304, but their selling price was £ 380, or around $ 500. On eBay, the consoles were listed for £ 500 and £ 400. All other auctions that awaited the first auctions have since been deleted, except those that are a bit more creative with their formulation.
Sony has been working overtime to keep this a secret, presumably because they were going to officially announce it at their PlayStation meeting on September 6, 2016. Sellers on Gumtree have claimed that the PS4 Slim will hit the global market on September 14, 2016 ., shortly after this meeting. Sony is also expected to unveil the PlayStation 4 Neo at this time.
It already seems to be following in the same footsteps as the PSP Go, which was, as Kaz Hirai said, “the worst-kept secret”. If that were to be the star of their PlayStation reunion, which couldn’t have been better, they better get something else up and running quickly.
