The PlayStation 5 console has proven to be extremely popular and has become the fastest-selling PlayStation console ever made. The console was so popular it had been difficult to seek out in stores. While some who need a PlayStation 5 might not yet are ready to find one, a rather Revised Version of the console has already hit the market.
Previously, reports surfaced indicating the PS5 Digital Edition would receive slight modifications, making it lighter and modifying its stand. The modifications to the stand would allow it to be adjusted without having to dig out the screwdriver. As for the load reduction, it had been reportedly losing 300 grams. Interestingly, at the time, similar modifications to the version of the console using discs were unannounced. However, a replacement model number of the PS5 has now landed in Australia.
The new model number is CFI-1102A, and it might appear Australia is the first country to receive that model. Consumers who have purchased the new model in Australia have confirmed it features a stand adjusted by hand without having a screwdriver. Its weight is unconfirmed, but the idea is that it’s shed 300 grams of weight even as the digital edition did.
The upgrade appears to possess been made to the console with no fanfare by Sony. The screw appears to be an equivalent shape and size but eliminates the silver head with a flat tip screwdriver squeeze in favor of a white plastic head that also features the flat tip screwdriver slot but is raised and has texture for finger gripping without tools.
However, it’s a mystery what exactly Sony did to the within of the console to eliminate 300 grams of weight. But, of course, weight reduction isn’t a big change since the console isn’t portable.
