Sony still hasn't given its updated PS5 model an official release date, but all the leaked information and public spottings are pointing towards 10th November 2023, the same day Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is out. As reported by Charlie Intel, new promotions are now advertising the PS5 Slim along with a copy of the FPS for $499.99, which means you get the game for free.
This PS5 Slim bundle has already been spotted in retail warehouses waiting to be distributed to the public, so it's very much a real thing. Now we know Modern Warfare 3 is provided without any extra cost (presumably the digital version) when purchasing the PS5 with a disc drive, all that's left to know is when it actually launches. Charlie Intel states 10th November 2023, but there's no evidence of that yet in the attached promo image.
It had been suggested the PS5 Slim will be available first in a $559.99 bundle with Marvel's Spider-Man 2 on 8th November 2023, but there's been no evidence of such a thing since the claim was made. A hardware bundle with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the only certainty at the time of writing. Don't forget that if you opt for the digital PS5 Slim and then choose to buy the disc drive later on, you will need an internet connection to complete the actual pairing.
