Sonylose weight in your and new rumors say the console will be even slimmer next year.
According to a report from Insider Gaming on Monday, the slimmer PS5 will arrive in September 2023. The new console is rumored to come without a built-in disk drive. Instead, it will have a removable hard drive that connects via USB-C to keep the thinness aesthetic. Internally, the console will have the same hardware.
According to Insider Gaming’s anonymous sources, the removable drive will also be available for purchase separately in case the original is damaged. The current PS5 is available with and without a disc drive, so gamers who purchased the cheaper disc-less Digital Edition could add functionality with a USB-C drive.
Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
November 2023 will mark three years since the release of the PS5, and it’s possible that Sony will release new hardware around that time. Thethe headset will be released sometime in 2023, and the previous version of the VR headset was released in 2016, just weeks before the slimmed-down PS4.
