After weeks of anticipation, Sony will finally take the stage in New York City on Wednesday afternoon for its PlayStation Meeting. Sony has yet to reveal what the event will focus on, but countless leaks over the past several weeks seem to have spoiled the biggest surprise. Still, there’s no telling what else Sony has in store.
We still have plenty of time to go until Sony officially unveils its next-gen console, and a refresh of the standard model, but one of two upcoming PlayStation models has already leaked. We’ve seen plenty of images and videos of the PS4 Slim model, including a clip that shows the new console booting. It’s likely the leaked device is the real thing, and a brand new video shows us the PS4 Slim’s new controller.
Sony has scheduled a media event for September 7th where the company is expected to unveil an upgraded version of the PlayStation 4 – sadly for Sony, the tech world will focus on a different company that day.

A revamped Apple TV device is going to be one of the new products Apple unveils on stage during its enormous media event on Wednesday. While many believe the major hardware revision and software revision are mostly related to Apple’s plans for taking over the living room, with a cable-like streaming subscription of its own, a new report says Apple is making a play for winning the living room when it comes to gaming.
The new Apple TV will have the more advanced hardware to take on traditional consoles including Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but Apple might be eying a particular subset of the gaming community. More →
