Featuring the same technology as the PS5, the new game console boasts a 30% volume reduction and 18% and 24% weight reduction compared to previous models, in an effort to “respond to the changing needs of gamers,” according to Sid Shuman, senior director of content communications at Sony.
“Our engineering and design teams have collaborated to create a new form factor that offers more options and flexibility,” explains Shuman. “The same technology features that make PS5 the best for gaming are packed into a smaller form factor, along with an attachable Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc drive and a 1TB SSD for more internal storage”.
In addition to the standard model, Sony will release a digital-only edition, with the option to separately add an Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc drive for $79.99.
The new PS5 will be available for purchase in the U.S. starting next November through Sony’s website. The PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc drive is priced at $499.99 (about €472), while the PS5 Digital Edition costs $449.99 (€425).
On the other hand, Animal Crossing and LEGO will release a limited edition set.
