A new leak claims that the PlayStation 5 Slim will arrive on November 8 with a Spider-Man 2 bundle

Published on

Sony unveiled last week refreshed versions of its PlayStation 5 consoles. In the announcement, the company said that the smaller models will hit the US markets next month. Today, a reliable leaker reports that the release date of the new (unofficial) PS5 Slim model may have leaked online.

According to posts on French leaker Billbil-kun’s website Dealabs, the PS5 Slim will launch in two waves in early November. It suggests that November 8 will release a special PS5 Slim bundle with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

A few days later, on November 10, the PS5 will be available in several updated console options, including an all-digital version without a disc drive. This aligns with Sony’s previous statement that the new slim PS5 model will launch in the United States and be available at select retailers and the PlayStation website starting this November.

The PS5 Slim is 30% smaller and 18-24% lighter than the original PS5. It will also now support an optional external drive. At $79.99, Sony will begin offering a separate Blu-ray drive for the new digital release. It can be attached to the side of the digital model to function just like the regular disc drive version.

Pricing for the new models has been revealed as follows:

  • us

    • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Drive – $499.99
    • PS5 Digital Edition – $449.99
  • Europe

The company will also sell the vertical stand, shown with the consoles in the images above, for $29.99.

If the November launch dates from this leak turn out to be accurate, it looks like Sony is targeting the holiday season for the debut of its revamped PlayStation 5.
