The rumor just fell like a stone in the pond: Sony would be working on a new version of the PS5 with a different chassis and, above all, offering a separate drive.

When the diet continues

The PlayStation 5 usually has a few new models, which allows Sony to optimize its infrastructure to lighten it, consume a little less energy and above all reduce its development costs: it is a fairly recurring fact in the industry and therefore nothing. new to report. Nevertheless, the model in question today could well arouse the curiosity of more than one player: it would offer a new chassis… in addition to a removable Blu-Ray drive.

As for the appearance and practicality of the machine.it is said that the aesthetics of the console would not be spoiled and that it will be connected to the machine through an additional rear USB-C portcoming later to graft naturally.

Obviously, we will wisely wait for formalization or denial in good and due form, when the time is right. For now, it’s up to the debate: Do you think such an accessory is relevant for gamers?
