Sony is now shipping out their “New” 1TB Playstation 4 consoles. But what you probably didn’t know is: the only thing “new” about this 1TB version is the larger storage capacity.

The true NEWEST of the Playstation 4 consoles remains 500GB: with an all new motherboard, less power consumption, and is lighter with less noise. The new 1TB PS4s are likely a marketing strategy— Sony is leaning towards not letting old hardware go to waste by re-releasing it with a larger storage capacity.

There is a way to find out which console you’re buying by checking the model number; the new and improved PS4s are the CUH-1200 series, while the older models are CUH-1100 series.
