The PS5 Slim has arrived with its share of new features, promises, and some gray areas. Although it’s presented as being 30% smaller than the PS5 Classic, what is it actually? Below are 3D renders for comparison.
So, yes, the PS5 Slim is smaller, with dimensions of 35.8 x 21.6 x 9.6cm compared to 39 x 26 x 10.4cm for the classic PS5. So you’ve already shrunk! In fact, Reddit user, u/NatureCertain, shared a 3D comparison of the two models to really visualize this difference. However, the term “slim” may be a bit of an exaggeration, especially when viewed next to a regular PS5 model without a disc drive.
But there’s one problem: the new support, which will be purchased separately, is broader. So, even though the console is more compact, if you plan to place it upright, it will take up a bit more space. Additionally, although it’s narrower, it’s still longer than the Xbox Series
Some additions are welcome
It’s not just the size that changes! The PS5 Slim will also be lighter on power consumption, which, let’s face it, can only be a plus point. Then, the SSD goes from 825GB to 1TB, which means more space for your games.
A little bonus that can make a difference: The drive is optional and can be added after purchase. This means that if you choose the version without the reader saving a few euros on purchase, you can always add it later if you change your mind.
