Is There a PS5 Slim?

While it has announced the standard PS5 and another version without a disc drive, Sony has not confirmed a PS5 Slim is in production. However, since every single PlayStation home console has at some point received a slimmer and updated model, it is highly likely that a PS5 Slim will launch at some point. It won't be available during the initial launch period though.

When Will the PS5 Slim Release?

Assuming Sony does eventually decide to release a PS5 Slim, we wouldn't expect it to arrive until at least two to three years after the initial launch period. The console will most likely sport a slimmer and sleeker look, but the internal components will remain largely the same.

How Much Will PS5 Slim Cost?

We now know that PS5 will cost $399.99/$499.99 at launch in the United States, but that doesn't mean a PS5 Slim would necessarily be priced the same. If we take history into account, we can probably assume that the PS5 Slim will cost less than the standard PS5 does at its 2020 launch, but it'll all depend on what Sony expects the hardware to offer and how it will be positioned in the marketplace.
