PS5 Slim Poll

Now that we've all had a little bit of time to think about it, we want to know if you plan on nabbing the refreshed PS5 model. Announced last week after months of consistent leaks and rumours, the reworked console is set to release in November. It's 30% smaller in terms of volume — which could be quite noticeable considering how much of a behemoth the standard PS5 is — and it's been given a slight visual redesign. You can also add to the new digital edition with an attachable disc drive.

Sony isn't pushing a price cut with the new models, however. In fact, in some regions like the US, the aforementioned digital edition is actually more expensive than before. In other words, the Japanese giant's found ways to lower the price of production — but it ain't passing the savings on to you. At least, not yet.

There's a conversation to be had about the lack of a vertical stand, too. In a move that feels like Sony is gouging its more hardcore fans, you'll have to cough up an extra $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 for said stand if you want to place your shiny new PS5 on its base.

But before we get too negative, we should point out that we do happen to like the PS5 redesign — and anything that makes the console smaller is a win in our eyes. What do you think, though?
