The Japanese version of Sony's PlayStation 5 Digital Edition is approximately 300 grams lighter than the original. The heavyweight console will now weigh less than eight pounds (about 3.5 kg) as a result of this.
This updated edition, which is set to be launched before the end of the month, has already been listed in Japanese stores.
The difference between the new CFI-1100B and the old CFI-1000B, according to the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition official handbook (PDF) and quick start guide (PDF), is its weight and a new thumbscrew for the PS5's vertical stand, according to PS5sokuhouInfo.
With the new thumbscrew for the vertical stand, the need for a screwdriver or a coin is not required anymore.
Though the weight has been knocked down slightly, the console and dimensions stay the same.
In April of this year, Sony CFO Hiroki Tokoi had said that Sony was looking at options due to the global semiconductor shortage and there could be an adjustment in the product design.
In May, an analyst named Roberto Serrano reported Sony has registered a new wireless communication module that could be added to a gaming console model.
