The PlayStation 5 is one of the most popular and popular products on the market. There is no stock available and the ones that do go on sale in seconds. Sony wanting the success of your console compatible with its normal manufacture and they have an idea how to achieve it, as they already did with the PS4.
Sony’s idea is to design a new model of the PlayStation 5, which will receive a one-time revision in the middle of the fiscal year 2023 with a launch around September 2023, explain the sources who revealed these plans.
According to these, the new console will completely replace the chassis A, B, and C that have been in production since the launch of the console. Remember that a few weeks ago we learned that Sony had started shipping PS5 with a new lighter design.
The console, currently known as the PlayStation 5 D-chassis, will have almost the same hardware as the consoles already on the market, but there will be an important change in its design, as we now explain.
The most surprising thing about this new PS5 is that the console will have a removable disk drive. The removable drive will connect to the PlayStation 5 via an additional USB-C port on the back of the console.
It is understood that this new PlayStation 5 console will be sold individually or in a package with the removable disk drive. It is also believed that the reader will be available to buy separately, so that if it breaks, there is no need to buy a whole new console.
Sources have revealed that while the new detachable drive is portable, it won’t ruin the console’s aesthetics and will connect to it without looking externally, meaning the new Playstation 5 will likely look similar to the existing model before.

However, the new removable disc drive could mean that the new iteration of the PlayStation 5 is thinner and lighter, something that Sony has tried to implement effectively with its latest PS5 models.
It is understood that Sony plans to produce 18.5 million units of the new PlayStation 5 console in fiscal year 2023 and only 12 million units of the consoles AC chassis, as they begin to be gradually out.
Sony Interactive reported that, As of June 2022, the company has shipped more than 21.7 million PlayStation 5 consoles. If these production figures are to be believed, they indicate that the company is expecting a significant increase. Will they reach PS4 level?
