If you've been holding out for a smaller PS5 model that isn't the size of an otherworldly aircraft, your prayers have been answered. Sony has whipped up a slim version of the PS5 console, but it's been selling out almost as fast as the listings go up at online retailers. Just how much slimmer and smaller is Sony's new PlayStation 5 console with a removable disc drive? Here it is compared to the original PS5.
The new PS5 Slim model is 30 percent slimmer than its predecessor, making it a more compact and visually appealing option for gamers. However, if you want a PS5 Slim Vertical Stand, you'll need to buy it separately. Unlike the original PS5, which came with a vertical stand included, the slimmer version requires an additional purchase.
Sony has just revealed a redesigned PS5 model that will be replacing the launch version later this year. The new PS5 is 30 percent slimmer and offers the same powerful gaming experience. However, PlayStation 5 owners will need to buy a vertical stand for their new consoles, as the new model will no longer come with one.
