Revised Sony PS5 models appear worldwide

Sony has secretly started releasing a new PlayStation 5 Digital Edition design. According to an Australian website, the new PS5 consoles that have arrived in the country have a different model number than the original PS5.

It may seem unusual for such a new console to be changed, but the small adjustments noted make the job easier for SSD upgraders and reduce the overall weight of the console by about 300 grams. The first is a small but useful adjustment while the second is likely to be implemented was designed to reduce the cost of manufacturing the console, particularly the bill of materials.

The PlayStation 5 was released last November and has been Sony’s fastest-selling console ever since. Now it seems that Sony has decided to do a slight freshening up. According to a report by Australian media press Start, the country’s new inventory of PS5 machines has a different model number: CFI-1102A. The first PS5 was model number CFI-1000.

Following its discovery in a Japanese manual last month, Australia appears to be one of the first countries to take stock of these slightly updated PS5 devices. While a screwdriver is no longer required for the proposed stand, you still need one to access the console’s optional removable M.2 SSD storage.

Overall, this new PS5 appears to be a minor update to the original console that is most likely aimed at cutting costs while addressing minor flaws. The most pressing question, however, is whether this new PS5 will be easier to get hold of as the world continues to be plagued by PS5 console shortages and PS5 is rarely refilled.

If more PS5s can be produced faster than the launch model, that’s great news for gamers and makes it easier for them to access a system. When you’re here, check out our articles on that Best ultrawide monitors for PS5 in 2021 [Buying Guide] and the Best 4K TV for Gaming on PS5 in 2021.
