Sony PlayStation 5 rumored to have a detachable disk in 2023


Reports circulating the web suggest that the next version of the Sony PlayStation 5 will come with a separate disc drive to reduce the weight of the device and to maintain its sleek look.

Insider Gaming said that the detachable disc drive will connect via USB-C, while the gaming console will keep the same hardware.

Apart from this, the new PS5 version is reported to be 500 grams lighter for the digital version, while the disc version weighs 600 grams, and will require 218 watts less power than the previous version.

Other rumored iterations of the new PS5 model are a heat pipe, slimmer motherboard, a different fan, and more plastic parts.

The PlayStation 5 is reported to hit the shelves in September 2023 with a price expected at $399.
