Rumours about an redesigned PS5 console have been floating around for months now, but the thing is yet to materialise. Whether we're in for a PS5 Slim or Pro (or something else entirely) remains to be seen – but it sure is starting to look like 2023 is the year we'll find out. 

A new Sony patent has added fuel to the (already pretty large) rumour fire that suggests the company is working on a new PS5 design involving a removable optical disk drive. And if recent reports are to be believed, it could arrive this year. (Don't fancy waiting? Check out the best PS5 deals available now.)
