Amazon Change Suggests PS5 Slim Console Imminent In 2023

Now Called Standard PS5 on Amazon Instead of PS5!

The PS5 Slim is rumored for a 2023 release. While rumors about the console have been going around for a while, various discounts from PlayStation have provided further evidence for a nearing release.

A leaker has also claimed Sony could potentially reveal the new console revision in August. Furthermore, Amazon UK now refers to the console as “PlayStation 5 Standard Console”.

The console was previously called “PlayStation 5 Console”, providing further evidence that a new revision is imminent.

Why it matters: A new console would allow Sony to cut development costs due to lower power consumption and heat production. Slim revisions have also been common over the last two decades.

As seen above, the console has a different name on Amazon UK. However, this new name has not been updated on Amazon worldwide.

This could mean that an update will be rolled out soon, changing the name of the console across all online websites. According to rumors, the PS5 Slim may be different from previous slim iterations.

A reliable leaker believes it will not be much different in size and come with a detachable disc drive. Therefore, Sony might include a new subtitle for the console, differentiating it from the current console.

It is also possible that Sony aims to introduce the new title to differentiate between the standard and rumored Pro console. Like the slim revision, the PS5 Pro has been rumored for a while and is expected to launch in 2024.

Nonetheless, the gaming giant is likely using recent sales to ensure that current stock is sold out before the new model is introduced. Another popular leaker has reported on an incoming discount on the console for the US market.

The PS5 is in an incredible position at the moment. Sony has already sold over 40 million consoles worldwide, and the upcoming exclusive, Spider-Man 2, is launching with a new console bundle.

This momentum provides the perfect opportunity to introduce a new revision, encouraging millions of new fans to purchase PlayStation’s latest offering.
