Unconfirmed news about a “smaller” version of the console from Sony called the PlayStation 5 Slim has been actively circulating on the network for a long time. The Japanese giant is still in no hurry to refute numerous leaks, on the contrary, it is actively preparing for the announcement. According to a new insider, the new console will be officially announced as early as next month.
Another leak of information about the PlayStation 5 Slim comes from a verified insider under the nickname Shpeshal_Nick. Earlier this year, he scored an accurate prediction for the PlayStation Showcase 2023, which speaks to his reliable sources within the company. According to him, Sony is updating its announcement plans due to the merger between Activision Blizzard and Microsoft. As the insider notes, the deal will be closed soon, and the Japanese company will hold a major presentation in August as a response.
If you believe the insider, next month Sony is going to organize a separate event in scale comparable to the format of the PlayStation Showcase. There will be a lineup of upcoming games from internal studios, with the main announcement being the PlayStation 5 Slim.
