PS5 Slim

A new report from reliable PS Plus leaker billbil-kun says Sony will launch its new PS5 hardware model first in a Marvel's Spider-Man 2 bundle on 8th November 2023. The new console will then be available standalone two days later on 10th November 2023, it's suggested. Sony has only publicly confirmed the updated system will release in November.

The Marvel's Spider-Man 2 bundle will apparently cost $559.99, presumably including a digital code for use on the PS Store along with the slimmer model boasting a disc drive. Sony will also release a digital-only version of the updated hardware which ships with the option of attaching a disc drive later on. This makes it $50 / £90 cheaper.

Set to be 30 per cent smaller than the original model, and either 18 per cent or 24 per cent lighter, the internal SSD will be upgraded to 1TB. Once stock of the original PS5 has been sold through, this slimmer model will become the default option. Sony has said it'll start shipping in November across the USA, with other territories handed stock in the coming months.
