A fresh appearance for the PS5 console this upcoming holiday season

As we approach the holiday season, Sony thrilled to announce the arrival of a new PS5 model. In response to the ever-changing preferences of gamers, engineering and design teams have collaborated on a revamped design, offering increased options and adaptability. This smaller form factor retains all the exceptional technology that makes the PS5 the ultimate gaming experience, now accompanied by an attachable Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Drive and a capacious 1TB SSD for expanded internal storage.

The new PS5 model has undergone a significant reduction in size, with a decrease in volume by over 30% and a weight reduction of 18% and 24%, in comparison to its predecessors. The console features four distinct cover panels, with the top panel sporting a glossy finish, while the bottom panel maintains a matte texture. If you opt for the PS5 Digital Edition, you’ll have the option to later add the Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Drive for PS5, available for separate purchase at $79.99 USD | €119.99 | £99.99 | ¥11,980.
