‘Glacier White’ PlayStation 4 Announced

Runtime: 0:30    Author: sonyplaystation    Category: Trailers

Sony announced a new colour variant for the PlayStation 4 today. The “Glacier White” PlayStation 4 will be available on New Zealand shores on January 25, with a 500GB hard-drive, priced at $489.95 RRP. Europe will get them on January 24, while Japanese gamers will have to wait til February 23.

“Users will be able to choose the simple, elegantly designed standard PS4 system from two colours, the original ‘Jet Black’ and the new ‘Glacier White’ to enjoy an array of entertainment experiences that are only possible on PlayStation,” reads the press release.

Note that this colour variant is for the slimmer, base version of the PlayStation 4 – not the PlayStation 4 Pro. It’s unclear if the Pro will receive colour variants in the future, but a passage in the press release states that “SIE will continue to further enhance the entire PlayStation ecosystem by offering the choice of a variety of hardware models…”

I saw this announcement yesterday, its weird and got me confused... the Glacier White PS4 has been available since Sept 9th 2014, I got one myself in the Destiny release bundle. I know this is for the Slim but the announcements make it look like this is a new thing for the ps4 , which is isnt.

Well, I probably should've read this advice sooner...

Anyone got a hair dryer?

Um, cool? Well, I haven't bought a PS4 and I wasn't going to but now it comes in white, OMG GIMME GIMME! Does that sort of thing actually translate into sales?

It's hilarious these things are still coming out with 500GB hard drives, especially when there's no option for using an external HDD and 120+ GB is already taken up by the system. 500GB aint anywhere enough when alot of games are pushing past 75GB these days.

I have an Xbox One but I totally get you on that. I installed Halo 5 yesterday. Around 92gb all up from iirc.

A lot of people like the option. I used to get asked all the time if we had white slim consoles it won't make you go out and buy a new ps4, but it might make you pick up a ps4 rather than a x1 because of the choice in colour. Matching accessories are some people's priorities.

So do I, well actually, I have both; a 500GB PS4 that I use primarily for exclusives, I don't use it other than that, and an Xbox One S, 500GB with a 2TB external HDD plugged into it, where I do the majority of my gaming from.

Really? That is hugely surprising to me. I get it for a piece of furniture or clothing but the colour of the console has no effect on how it plays etc. Learn something new every day.

Yeah bro I had to laugh at the first sentence too as mine is a Destiny bundle model too! It's not a new colour to PS4 at all. lol. I was a little excited that this might have been a white Pro announcement, but it's just a measly 500 GB slim so pass.
