Yesterday, important news regarding the PlayStation 5 was revealed, as the rumored slim models were already confirmed to be the brand’s classics, with prices equivalent to what they already have at the moment. And now that they go on sale in November, the question is what’s next, as people are scrambling to get their hands on the novelty.
As commented by sony, the current models will stop being made entirely to dedicate themselves to the new versions, as well as the development of peripherals for both, we are talking about the Blu Ray reader and the support for placing the console vertically. The objective is for people to notice a reduction in device size but functionality intact and no reduction in assembly cost.
It’s worth noting that those left with older models shouldn’t have a problem, since they’ll continue to be updated naturally, both in terms of video game parts and hardware additions. That is, it will continue, but the digital cannot be improved by adding a record player, which is not really serious.
One thing that caught the eye from yesterday’s announcement is that the price of the digital version will increase, as it goes from now on $400 USD to $450 USDIt’s one of its own for some reason sony Not published yet. Also, paying for the vertical base seemed absurd to some, since the old model came with it in the package as an essential part of the console.
Note that with the new version coming to stores in November PlayStation Portal.
Editor’s note: All this means is that there’s no reason to panic, as consoles will continue to serve as always, otherwise I can imagine those who bought the version of Spider-Man feeling cheated by Sony.
