The widely popular Sony PlayStation 4 is an eighth-generation console released in 2013 at a cost of $399. It is a graphically superior model following on from the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3.
So, how much does a PS4 weigh?
The original PlayStation 4 weighed in at 6.17 pounds (2.8 kgs).
A slimmer version of the PS4 called the PS4 Slim weighs 4.62 pounds (2.1 kg).
The PlayStation Pro, released in November 2016, weighs around 7.27 pounds (3.3 kg).
After a less than successful PlayStation 3 launch, Sony was determined to match the success of the PlayStation 2 which is one of the most successful consoles ever launched.
Critics praised Sony for releasing a console that was superior to the Xbox One, with a focus on social interaction, improved controllers and the ability to stream and play games remotely.
One of the more successful features of the PlayStation 4 was Remote Play in which a smartphone, tablet and a PS Vita could interact with the PlayStation 4.
