When Sony first revealed the leaner models of the PlayStation 5, they mentioned that it would be available in November. The latest model is 30% smaller and either 18% or 24% lighter than its predecessor. The only notable difference in appearance is a black band that separates the top and bottom cover panels.
The new PS5 digital edition is available for $450, which is $50 more expensive than the previous version. If you want to use physical game discs or watch DVDs or Blu-rays on the PS5, you can attach an $80 disc drive. However, the original PS5 consoles will be discontinued once they are sold out.
To position the PS5 Slim vertically, you will need to purchase a separate $30 stand. Otherwise, plastic clips are included to stabilize the console horizontally.
