An unannounced hardware version of PlayStation 5, first noticed in Australia by Press Start, brings two changes to Sony’s console. First, the new model, CFI-1102A, is 0.6 kilos lighter compared to the original console, although Sony has not given any indication of what has changed. Back in May, there were reports that a new wireless module was planned, and that̵
Secondly, and most importantly, there is a new screw for the console’s annoying and necessary base / stand. Although the screw is not necessary when the system is placed in a horizontal position (there is a small space to store the screw), anyone who sets up a PS5 vertically needs the screw to keep the stand stable. The revised screw can be tightened by hand thanks to a new grip around the head. Although it does not make it easier to adjust the base / stand, you no longer need a screwdriver to perform the operation.
The console, which has been plagued by a scalp market since its launch, is still in short supply. A quick look at eBay auctions shows that new PS5s are still consistently running close to $ 700- $ 900, well over $ 400- $ 500 MSRP, depending on edition. Apps like StockInformer can alert those who are still trying to track one – minus the reseller premium.
