The PS5 Slim is not just a smaller version of its predecessor. It comes with extra storage space, making it an attractive option for gamers who need more room for their favorite titles. The redesign makes the console lighter and adds an optional removable Blu-ray drive for diskless models.
PS5 Slim Release Date and Availability
Sony has confirmed that the PS5 Slim will be available in the US at select local retailers in November 2023. The console will continue to roll out globally in the following months.
Pricing and Specifications
The PS5 Slim will come in two versions: a $500 USD version with an included UHD Blu-ray drive, and a digital-only model priced at $450. Both models include 1TB of internal storage, a slight upgrade from the previous 825GB SSD. The disc drive itself is detachable and can be purchased separately for $80 and mounted to the digital unit.
While the official price for Kenya is yet to be announced, we can estimate it based on the current prices of PlayStation consoles in Kenya. As of now, the standard PlayStation 5 costs around Ksh 84,000 to Ksh 130,000 in Kenya. Given these prices, we can expect the PS5 Slim to be priced competitively.
The PS5 Slim promises to deliver all the power and performance of its predecessor in a more compact and user-friendly design. With its additional storage space and optional removable Blu-ray drive, it’s set to offer gamers more flexibility and convenience. Whether you’re a seasoned gamer or new to the PlayStation universe, keep an eye out for this exciting new release!
