Pre-order is also available in Russia
Sony has begun accepting pre-orders for its new PlayStation 5 Slim game console in the European market. Previously, sales began in the USA, Canada and Japan.
Now European users can also pre-order the new product in the PlayStation Direct online store, as well as from third-party retailers. Public sales are scheduled to begin November 29, 2023. Prices depend on the region, for example, in Britain they start from 390 pounds sterling, and in Germany from 450 euros.
Note that Russian retailers are already preparing to launch sales as part of parallel imports and are accepting pre-orders.
The new consoles are more compact than other versions of the PlayStation 5. Sony has reduced the body size by as much as 30% and reduced the weight by 24%. The PlayStation 5 Slim Digital Edition provides another great feature – the ability to connect an external drive, which can be purchased separately. In addition to support for a removable drive, the new version of the console has some improvements, such as a 1 TB solid-state drive and two USB Type-C ports.
