According to Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson, the possible PS5 Slim “Doesn’t seem like there are any major hardware changes from the original console.” Tom went on to add that the disc drive might not work with current Digital Editions.
If this is true, that is a very odd decision for Sony to make. The internals are identical, so someone correct me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t the current digital console just need a firmware update? I’m not interested in buying one, I love the digital life despite its shortcomings, but for those of you that are, maybe a third party will make them as well. Then current digital owners can be the proud owners of a Mad Catz PS5 disc drive.
This new PS5 with a detachable disc drive was first reported in September. The system will supposedly arrive in September 2023 and has been in production since November 2020. The disc drive will connect to the console through a USB-C port on the back of the system. Sony will reportedly sell the slim system on its own or bundled with the detachable drive (which itself will be offered separately too).
But no matter which version of the PS5 you own, your priority is most likely games… followed by your dwindling storage space. One game loads of you will be making room for later this year is Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. This week a leaked image for the game has confirmed that the game will have several live service elements. Verified by VGC, the image first appeared on 4Chan and is said to be from a recent test build.
