Two New PS5s a Year Apart? Never!
By the end of 2024, Sony will release the PS5 Pro. On the one hand, it’s not completely implausible, but on the other, there’s that other rumor that actually has some substance to it. We’re referring to the long-awaited rumored PS5 revision, which is said to include a removable disc drive.
This update, which is rumored to replace the current PS5 disc and digital versions, will release later this year, around September.If this redesign holds true, Sony would be selling not one but two new PS5s in the span of around 12 months (the original PS5 and the PS5 Pro) and, at least at first appearance, it seems a little too aggressive.
Imagine buying a PS5 with a detachable disc drive only to learn that a better system is coming out in a year. One could foresee a public relations nightmare if such were to happen.
