Sony has officially announced that slimmer versions of the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will be arriving just in time for the holiday season. The new PS5 model, often referred to as the "slim" version, has undergone several changes to make it more compact and lightweight.
The PlayStation 5 "slim" arrives this month, and a new teardown video shows what players can expect, from internal differences to the fact that it now comes with a detachable disc drive. The video provides an in-depth look at the console's internals, temperatures, power consumption, and overall size comparison to the original PS5.
In terms of size, Sony's new PS5 model is, indeed, slightly smaller than the original, as some new photos confirm. A side-by-side comparison reveals just how much slimmer and smaller the new console is compared to its predecessor. The redesign has allowed for a more streamlined appearance, making it easier to fit into entertainment centers and shelves.
