Microsoft Predicts Sony PS5 Slim Console Will Launch in 2023 for $399.99

A recent document filed by Microsoft with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has revealed that the company believes Sony will release a slimmer version of its PlayStation 5 console later this year. The document, which was obtained by users on the gaming forum NeoGAF, states that Microsoft expects the PS5 Slim to be priced at $399.99.

The document does not provide any further details about the PS5 Slim, such as its specifications or release date. However, it does suggest that Sony is planning to release a more affordable version of its next-generation console in order to compete with Microsoft's Xbox Series S.

The PS5 Slim would be the second revision of the PS5 console. The first revision, which was released in November 2020, featured a number of minor changes, such as a revised heatsink and a smaller power supply. The PS5 Slim is expected to have more significant changes, such as a smaller form factor and a more energy-efficient design.

If Microsoft's prediction is correct, the PS5 Slim could be a major release for Sony. The PS5 has been a successful console, but it has also been criticized for its high price. A more affordable version of the console could help Sony to reach a wider audience and boost sales.

The PS5 Slim is expected to be released in the second half of 2023. It will face competition from Microsoft's Xbox Series S, as well as from the upcoming Steam Deck handheld console. However, the PS5 Slim is likely to be a popular choice for gamers looking for a powerful and affordable next-generation console.
