the size of the Sony PS5 Slim versus the PlayStation 5

The PS5 Slim arrived with its share of new features, promises and some gray areas. Although it is presented as being 30% smaller than the classic PS5, what is it really? Here are 3D renderings to compare.

So yes, the PS5 Slim is smaller, with dimensions of 35.8 x 21.6 x 9.6 cm compared to the 39 x 26 x 10.4 cm of the classic PS5. So, indeed, she has shrunk! In fact, a Reddit user, u/NatureCertain, shared a 3D comparison of the two models to really visualize this difference. However, “slim” may be a bit of an exaggerated term, especially when looking at it next to the regular PS5 model without a disc drive.

One problem, however: the new support, to be purchased separately, is wider. So even though the console is more compact, if you plan to stand it upright, it’s going to take up a little more space. Plus, even though it’s narrower, it’s still taller than the Xbox Series X, which can be a problem in some TV stands.

Some welcome additions

It’s not just the size that changes! The PS5 Slim will also be lighter in energy consumption, which, let’s face it, can only be a good point. And then, the SSD goes from 825 GB to 1 TB, which means more space for your games.

Small bonus that can make the difference: the disk drive is optional and can be added after purchase. This means that if you choose the version without the reader to save a few euros on purchase, you can always add it later if you ever change your mind.
