Sony has announced that the limited edition Gold and Silver PlayStation 4 Slim consoles will hit Europe on June 28. Each include a 500GB HDD and two DualShock 4 controllers.

Here’s what the descriptions say about the new PS4s:

  • New Design to the Range – Silver/Gold joins the range of smaller, slimmer, lighter PS4 consoles alongside Jet Black and Glacier White.
  • High Dynamic Range (HDR) – Visuals closer to what the human eye sees in the real world.
  • Slick Interface – Fast, personal and easier to use.
  • Exclusive PS4 Features – Stream gameplay to your PC with Remote Play and bring a friend into your game with Share Play.
  • More Connections – Features 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi mode options and HDMI 2.0 output.
  • Two Consoles, One PS4 Family – All games are fully cross-compatible with players on PS4 and PS4 Pro consoles

Works with:

  • DualShock 4 wireless controller – the intuitive design and precise controls that defines the new generation of play.
  • PlayStation VR – put yourself at the centre of the game in a matter of minutes with the PS4 exclusive virtual reality headset.
  • PlayStation Camera – essential for the PS VR experience. Also unlocks PS4 features like voice controls, facial recognition and picture-in-picture video editing and broadcasting.

As the above trailer points out, not only was the PS4 the world’s best-selling console in 2014, 2015, and 2016, but it was also Britain’s best-selling console in those three years.
