Sony's new PS5 design isn't quite what we were hoping for

The PS5 is finally becoming a little less elusive, and if you've been lucky enough to snag one lately then you'll know that's not small. Not small at all. But while we've heard rumours for a while that a Slim PS5 could be on the way, it's yet to materialise.

What has been spotted in the wild this week is a "new" PS5 model that's a fair bit lighter than the original, albeit with the same gargantuan design. Still, at least it's a little less of a doorstop than the 2020 model. (Feeling lucky? Check out the latest PS5 restock news.)
