Sony's rumoured 'PS5 Slim' console could be a little disappointing

The PS5 is only just becoming (slightly) easier to get hold of, but the rumour mill has already turned its attention to what might be coming next. We've already heard that Sony is working on a potentially slimmer version of the console complete with removable disk drive, but new leaks suggest that edition might not be quite as exciting as we hoped.

According to a Sony leaker, this version of the PS5 will feature pretty much identical hardware to its predecessor, which means it'll be just as gargantuan – and just as fast. Rather than the much-rumoured PS5 Slim (or indeed PS5 Pro), this is looking like an incremental upgrade. (Feeling lucky? Check out the latest PS5 restock news.)
