Sony has begun selling a new revision of the PlayStation 5 console. It is reported by the Australian edition of PressStart.
A digital version of the PS5, which does not have a floppy drive, was found in Australian online stores. Confirmation that a new version of the console has appeared in local retailers, was the digital designation of the CFI-1102A model. According to journalists, Australia became the first country in which sales of the updated version of the set-top box started.
According to the publication, reviews of the current PS5 revision have not yet appeared on the network. However, the authors noted that the next generation of the console differs from the starting one in that the console has become about 300 grams lighter. Also, the device has a new type of screw, with which the device is attached to the stand. The component is designed in such a way that it can be tightened by hand without using a screwdriver.
According to journalists, they do not know when the new set-top box will be available in other countries of the world. The timing of the release of the second revision of the basic version of the PlayStation 5 with a floppy drive is also unknown.
The appearance of the second revision of the PlayStation 5 became known at the end of July. In addition to the reduced weight and the presence of a new type of screw, the updated console is no different from the original. Global sales of the PS5 console started in November.
