Sony has released a new version of their PlayStation 4 in Japan, the device comes with the revision number CUH-1200 and it uses less power than the current model.
There have been a number of changes to the PlayStation 4 that are designed to make the device more energy efficient.
The updated PlayStation 4 looks exactly the same on the outside, but inside there is a smaller motherboard and a new GDDR5 memory setup that uses double density memory chips to provide the 8GB of RAM.
Other changes include a simpler Blu-ray drive, some changes to the component arrangement and also the cooling assemblies in the device.
The updated PS4 is said to use between 30 and 50 percent less power in standby mode, and during gameplay there is a drop in power usage of around 18 percent. Sony has also made some changes to the fans and fan noise has now apparently been reduced on this updated PS4 console.
As yet there are no details on when the updated version of the PS4 will become available outside of Japan, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
