I have heard the PS4 has recently been updated. I like some of the changes, including the mechanical power and eject buttons, but I especially like the improved power supply. I read some articles about the updates, but I have yet to read a list of which special editions feature the upgrades. Which special editions of the PS4 feature the updated power supply and other upgrades?
IDK, but If I had to guess I'd say all the models that are 1TB and not 500GB.– Ashwin GuptaFeb 11, 2016 at 5:49
That I could understand. Personally, I am more specifically interested in the Batman and Taken King editions of the PS4 (both which are 500GB), but I thought that I would ask for a more comprehensive list since I haven't found one yet.– Bryan FFeb 11, 2016 at 19:08
Should you not be able to tell from pictures of them if they have different power and eject buttons?– ProbstFeb 11, 2016 at 21:35
@BryanF well just look at release dates on amazon. Look at when the updated ps4s started coming out, then look at the release date and the bundles you are intrested in.– Ashwin GuptaFeb 12, 2016 at 2:53
@BryanF aha! I think I got this: amazon.com/PlayStation-500GB-Console-Black-Bundle-4/dp/… Scroll down near the bottom. There is hardware specs.– Ashwin GuptaFeb 12, 2016 at 3:37
The new version of the PS4 is called "CUH-1200". There are different numbers for this version, depending on the territory, e.g. the European relese is called "CUH-1216", the US release "CUH 1215".
There is also a letter after this number, signifying the HDD space. The 500 GB version is called "CUH-1216A" and the 1 TB version "CUH-1216B". I'm not sure about the exact release date, but the 1200 models have been released somewhere around July/August 2015, so any console from before that time will be one of the older models.
Make sure to look up the number before purchasing the console. It should state it somewhere on the package, otherwise you should ask the seller before purchasing. It is also a good idea to search amazon reviews for clarification which number the console has, if it isn't stated in the description.
In some countries, online stores will show the version number on the article page, like amazon.de.
Regarding the console bundles you're interested in, according to their amazon reviews and a post on the US Playstation blog, the US Taken King bundle is the new 1200 model.
The Batman Limited Edition, however, seems to be the older 1100 model, according to this post from a Playstation community manager.
In case you're interested, here is a good comparison between the three models.
Thank you for the thorough response! The model numbers are exactly what I was trying to articulate.– Bryan FFeb 15, 2016 at 18:36
