The system will weigh in lighter than the original model of the PS3 at 2.8kg, with the older console weighing 5kg, Engadget reports.

However, it weighs slightly more than the latest slimline model of the PS3, which ranks at 2.1kg.

The FCC's consumer arm also measured the PS4's maximum clock efficiency at 2.75GHz.

The PS4 will launch this holiday for $399 in North America and £349 in the UK. The console will launch alongside titles including Killzone: Shadow Fall, Drive Club and Knack.
