Sony usually makes plenty of noise when a new PS4 model is released, whether that is the PS4 Pro or previous PS4 Slim models, but it looks like it has quietly rolled out a new version of the console although it’s unlikely that anyone will notice.

PS4 models sold right now tend to carry the model number CUH-2100 but Sony has started to sell consoles with the number CUH-2200, with some reporting that they have begin to crop up in Japan.

For those unaware, Sony changes the model number of its consoles when the need arises and the digit that is altered denotes how big of a revision it is. For example, when Sony launched the PS4 Slim the first digit changed from 1 to 2, meaning it was a large revision with the last two digits used to denote the region in which the console will be sold.

However, with this new model having only changed the second digit of its model number it’s a fair bet that the changes are minimal and internal in nature, meaning we will likely not know what has changed unless someone tears one of the updated PS4s down.

We don’t expect Sony to make any announcements about the new model number, and at this point we cannot help but think that regardless of model the PS4 Pro is the better buy anyway, but we still find it interesting that at this point in its lifecycle Sony is still finding things to change inside its Ps4.

So the next time you’re buying a Ps4, be sure to check which model number it has – it may just be a redesigned console.
