This summer has brought with it another of Sony's Days of Play events and, along with some cracking price reductions, brought another gorgeous special edition PS4 Slim with it. This new 1TB version is styled with a handsome Steel Black color scheme and features a similar use of the iconic PlayStation symbols that last year's special edition model did. Noice. In my opinion, it’s a winning combination; with the symbols being embossed silver, the machine has a a damn classy look. This is a brilliant looking, limited edition system, and is even more attractive at a price of $299.99 (opens in new tab) / £279.99 (opens in new tab).

This console’s a real looker, and its 1TB storage is a welcome plus. It won’t play games in 4K like the Pro, but it’s drop-dead gorgeous.
