Sony announced that it will be releasing a new PS5 console at different prices. Since then, fans all over the world have been wondering what the new PS5 will be like. Even though not all of the information about the updated PS5 console with higher prices is out yet, here is some information that some fans might find interesting.
Press-start says that the new PS5 model with higher prices has already arrived in Australia and is a big change from the one that came before it. The name of the new model is CFI-1200, and it will be available to more people on September 15th. The article says that Australia seems to be the first country to get the new console models after the price hikes were announced.
The big difference between the new console and the old one is that the new one is lighter. The new digital PS5 weighs 3.4 kilograms, which is interesting because the first digital PS5 weighed 3.5 kilograms when it came out. On the other hand, the disc PS5 weighs 600 grams less than the disc PS5 did when it first came out; it weighs 3.9 kilograms.
Hardware changes in the new PlayStation5?
The new PS5’s change in weight, which was already mentioned, is a clear sign that the hardware has changed. Could it be that, while Sony raised the prices of the PS5’s disc and digital versions, the company quietly changed the console’s hardware in important ways?
We don’t know the answer to that question right now. At this point, it’s hard to say much about the supposed hardware change in the new PlayStation 5 that comes out on September 15th unless Sony says something about it.
In a similar way, even if Sony doesn’t say anything, once the new console comes out, it will be taken apart to see what changes have been made inside.
If we want to see proof of the supposed changes to the hardware, we’ll have to wait until the new PS5 comes out with higher prices.
