A user manual on the Japanese PlayStation website confirms a new PS5 Digital model, weighing 300 grams less than the original model.
PlayStation 5 had a great launch around the world, thanks to its two models . On the one hand we have the traditional model with a disc reader, while Sony also decided to bet on a second exclusively digital model . However, it looks like a review of this is coming …
It is no secret that the digital model of PS5 is having a hard time starting in Japan , where it registers figures much lower than those of the model with a reader. Perhaps this is why Sony has decided to develop a PS5 Digital review , which has been leaked into an official PlayStation user manual.
Thanks to information from a user manual on Sony’s Japanese website has been found to mention a new model of PS5 Digital. It is an identical console to the original model launched in November 2020, but with an interesting novelty .
PlayStation 5 is a fairly heavy console , which in its digital model weighs almost 4kg . Considering that Japanese gamers like lightweight and more accessible devices, this new review would come with a novelty under its arm: it weighs 300 grams less than the base model .
We emphasize: all the specifications of this new PS5 Digital model are exactly the same as those of the original model. However, it weighs 3.6kg, that is, 300 grams less than the 3.9kg that Sony’s digital console weighed .
There are even Japanese stores such as Nojima and GEO that have listed this new PS5 Digital model, specifying a release date. In fact, the official GEO website places the launch of the new PS5 Digital model on today, July 20 , although it is not confirmed.
Perhaps this weighty review is the boost PS5 Digital needs in Japan , absurd as it may sound. The truth is that Japanese players are more attached to the physical format , and that is why they decide before the model with a reader. Remember that PS5 Digital is 100 euros cheaper.
