Sony is releasing a "Glacier White" version of the new-look, slimline 500GB Playstation 4, launching in Australia on 25 January.

But remember, kids. When you buy a white console, you're really just pre-ordering a yellow one.

We've seen some incredible TVs at CES this year: Stunning screens that practically melt your eyeballs. But the real stars of the show haven't been the displays. Instead, the TVs are remarkable for their designs. The coolest TVs of CES 2017 pulled all the guts of the TV out of the display hardware, and in the process effectively completed the modern television's transition to a giant arse computer monitor.

True to rumours, Sony revealed a new OLED TV yesterday at CES. The display itself appears to be just as thin as LG's new 2.5mm-thick OLED W7, but where the LG OLED puts the speakers in a giant soundbar you can position anywhere near the TV, the Sony set uses the display itself as the speaker.

Step aside, LG. You're not the only player in the game with a perfect-black-level OLED television any more. Sony just announced a new OLED 4K TV at CES, and it ups the ante with a new, more powerful imaging processor and sound that comes from behind the screen rather than below it.

We might not be in the era of taking your PlayStation 4 to a shop down the street and getting a mod chip. But ever since Sony announced you could run Linux on the original PlayStation 3 - and subsequently removed it in future iterations - people have been keen on the idea of Linux running on the PS4.

But as a talk at the annual Chaos Communication Congress showed, the PS4 is definitely not a PC. And while that makes things harder, it doesn't mean you can't get Linux going on the PS4 nonetheless.

Sony's Project Field looks a bit like a plastic cutting board. It is thin, light, portable and brings compatible chip-embedded real-world objects in-game - similar to a Lego Dimensions, Amiibo, Skylanders or (RIP) Disney Infinity port.

But instead of connecting to a console, it connects to a smartphone or a tablet via Bluetooth. So you take it everywhere you go. Well, that's the idea, anyway.

I've been stubbornly holding off upgrading to 4K for a while now. I mean, what am I going to do with it? Watch South Park? My current TV is adequate enough, and there's just not enough content out there yet to justify the investment, I tell myself. For anything where gorgeous gaming is super important I turn to PC, I tell myself.

Then PlayStation Experience 2016 happened. The Last Of Us Part II. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Horizon Zero Dawn. I'm now overwhelmed with a need to do these games justice. Dammit.

Here's all the trailers from the event so you can see for yourself.

If you don't already have a PS4, and you don't want to shell out $559 for a PS4 Pro, then you may as well get yourself a PS4 Slim. The redesigned PlayStation 4 is usually $439 for a 500GB variant, but this weekend you'll find it for a fair bit less.
