PS5 With Detachable Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Drive Announced, Launches in November

The new PS5 will retail for $499.99, and the Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive is available separately at $79.99 for the PS5 Digital Edition.

After months of rumors, Sony has finally confirmed a new PS5 model launching this November. It sports the same hardware but a lighter and slimmer form factor. There’s also a detachable Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, sold separately for $79.99 for those who purchase the PS5 Digital Edition. Check out the trailer below.

With 30 percent lower volume than the previous model, the new PS5 is 18 percent lighter than the previous model (24 percent if you pick up the Digital Edition). It has four cover panels, one housing the Blu-ray Disc Drive, and a 1 TB SSD. The PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive will cost $499.99, while the PS5 Digital Edition retails for $449.99.

While a horizontal stand is included, a new vertical stand, compatible with all models, will be available separately for $29.99. Sony also confirmed that once the current model’s inventory has sold out, the new PS5 model will be the only one available for the foreseeable future.
