Pre-order PS5 Slim - FAQs

How much is the PS5 Slim?

The PS5 Slim will retail for the  exact same price as it's larger predecessor. That is $499 for the disk-drive edition in the US, and £479.99 in the UK for the full fat version, and £379.99 for the Digital Edition.

What are the specs of the PS5 Slim?

Simply put, the PS5 Slim will have exactly the same specs as the original, launch PS5. Nothing has changed apart from the design, weight, dimensions, and footprint of the console - as well as that detachable disk drive of course.

Should you buy a PS5 Slim?

The PS5 Slim is an aesthetic update to the console with one extra - the detachable disk drive. Otherwise, there are no hardware or spec changes. As a result, if you have an existing, launch PS5 model, unless you really like the new design or really want the detachable disk, there's no reason to go for the PS5 Slim.

For those who are looking to get their first PS5 console then it'll depend on your preferences of how the two different kinds look, and whether you'll utilize that disk drive. 

The PS5 Slim will become the only model on offer at some point but before then there's no major factor separating it from the 'regular' model.
