The Super Slim PS3 came out in 2012 to a collective sigh to everyone around me. It had an ugly sliding design and it looked like a cheap, plastic bathroom door; the PS3 slim was already the best version of the console; and its existence was to only serve as a cheap filler until the PS4 came out.
Generally speaking I was not excited for the Super Slim, but I really like slim consoles. I'm still rocking the PS3 slim, the Xbox One S, and the sexiest PS2 of them all, the silver slim. The GameCube and Wii were already nice and small, and didn't need slim revisions. The Wii U was all right but the gamepad is a fat ugly brick and we don't talk about the Wii U gamepad in my house.
I bought the PS4 slim over the PS4 pro because of it's size and design mostly. I am the type of person to care more about that than power. BUT - if a PS4 Pro Slim came out I'd ride that baby out of the store quicker than anyone could say "This guy is oddly sexual about video game console designs."
With the PS5 on its way a PS4 Pro Slim could serve as a cheaper alternative, and I think it is very well plausible that one would come out alongside the release of the PS5. This is also likely is Sony decides to use the PS4 Pro as an "intro" PS5, as they are rumoured to share very similar hardware designs and could run the same games easily.
So, what's your take?
