A hot new rumor has supposedly given us the first look at a slimmer PlayStation 4 model, as well as a potential PS Vita successor.

The rumor originated from a user on the British classifieds website Gumtree, who offered what looked like an entirely new model of the PlayStation 4.

It didn’t take long for someone to notice it wasn’t a normal-looking PS4, to which the seller was asked to open the box. Here’s what the console looks like:

Here’s a comparison of the supposedly new unit (pictured below left), alongside the original (pictured below right) PlayStation 4:

Finally, another rumor (however connected to the PlayStation 4 slim) is claiming a new “PSP-like device” is in production at Chinese manufacturer Foxconn as well. It’s worth mentioning this new device is not confirmed to be in production for Sony.

What do you think of the rumors? Could we be seeing a new, slim PlayStation 4 launch alongside the slightly upgraded PlayStation 4 Neo? Is Sony actually making a successor to the PlayStation Vita? Sound off in the comments below!
