Sony PS5 game console 2023 exposure

Tom Henderson, a reliable whistleblower in the gaming industry, announced that Sony is developing a new PlayStation 5 game console with a detachable optical drive.

 Sources say Sony's PlayStation 5 will undergo a unique overhaul in the middle of fiscal 2023, with the new console due to launch around September 2023.

Sources familiar with Sony's plans shared details on the condition of anonymity, outlining the next iteration of the PlayStation 5. It has been suggested that this new console will completely replace the A, B, and C cases that have been in production since the console's launch. The console is currently named D-Case PlayStation 5, and its hardware will be nearly identical to the PlayStation 5 already on the market.

The biggest change in this new PlayStation 5 is that it will be equipped with a detachable optical drive, which will be connected to the PlayStation 5 using the extra USB-C port on the back of the game console.

The new PlayStation 5 console will be sold separately or bundled with a removable optical drive. Optical drives can also be purchased separately, so you don't need to buy a new console if it's just the optical drive that fails.

Sources have hinted that the new removable optical drive is portable and that it won't spoil the aesthetics of the console, which could mean the new PlayStation 5 will look similar to the existing model.

In addition, the new detachable optical drive may mean that the new version of the PlayStation 5 will become thinner and thinner, and also allow the optical drive version of the PlayStation 5 to become as symmetrical as the non-optical drive version, removing the current separate bulge.
