A new revision of the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will start shipping at the end of the month, with slight changes from the launch model.
The new model, the CFI-1100B01 series, which is now listed on several Japanese websites, will be around 300g lighter than the launch model and it will come with a thumbscrew for the base. It is not yet clear what has been changed to make the console lighter, but it is likely that changes have been made to the fan and heatsink, which are quite large in the original model.

The PlayStation 5 Digital Edition launched alongside the standard model in November 2020, but the console is still hard to find for a variety of reasons. Since its release, Sony’s current generation console has received a few exclusive titles, like the Demon’s Souls remake by Bluepoint and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Insomniac’s game is one of the console’s best showcases, as Chris points out in his review.
With exceptional storytelling, exquisite visuals, and gripping gameplay, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is proving to be an engaging, fun, funny, and utterly enjoyable return to the series. It also features the introduction of two brand new characters who could arguably be the protagonists of their own spin-off, or at least return to future entries in the series. For fans and new players alike, this is a game I would recommend to anyone and a true demonstration of the kind of titles we should expect for the new generation.
PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition are now available worldwide. The new model will start shipping at the end of July.
