500 g, or 600 g less than the launch version.
When Playstation 5 was launched a few years ago, one of the first things to notice was how big the device actually was. The standard version with a disc drive was about 4,5 kg, and Digital Edition was about 3,9 kg.
Australia has now gotten a new CFI-1200 series models of Playstation 5, and the standard version with a disc drive weighs the same as Digital Edition did at launch: 3,9 kg. The new digital model CFI-1202B weighs 3,4 kg. This means that the weight of the Playstation 5 has diminished for 600 g (Standard Edition) and 500 g (Digital Edition). This is pretty significant loss of weight.
This is not the first time Sony has done this, since back in July 2021 a CFI-1100 series was intruduced, which was also lighter than the launch version CFI-1000 models.
It is not known, how the decrease has been made this time, but back in July 2021 the heatsink was changed resulting a loss in weight.
