The origin of the PS4 Slim consoles was not done in Britain but in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as the editors of MCV have reported.

The consoles were stored until at least its official announcement, and were expected next week, on 7 September with PlayStation 4 Neo. Sony has invested in recent years in the Arab market, where it seeks to expand its presence, but a small starting units had been leaked to the UK, where it was distributed in small establishments and hence users started to put them on auction.

One of the leading retail buyer said that “You have to feel sorry for PlayStation, because it’s all descended into an absolute farce.”

“We didn’t even realise this was coming out until it was available to buy online. We’ve seen early selling before, but nothing quite like this,” another buyer said.

Sony has not yet made official comments on the news. The official date and price of PS4 Slim should be given out at the PlayStation Meeting.

Unveiling the PS4 Slim, is expected in the next week on Wednesday, 07 September 2016. It is also expected that Sony Interactive Entertainment will also reveal the PS4 Neo next to the Slim in the PlayStation Meeting.
