Sony announced a slimmer, lighter refresh of the PlayStation 5 last month, bringing several design changes that help the console shed its bulky signature. The PS5 Slim is now smaller and more compact, offering a sleeker look that’s closer to Microsoft’s Xbox One X. It also comes with redesigned side panels that allow you to add a detachable external Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive to the digital edition of the console at a later date, giving gamers some extra value for their new purchase.
The redesigned PS5 Slim is now set to release this month, giving consumers a chance to get their hands on the latest PlayStation from Sony before the holidays. To celebrate the launch of the new slim model, it’s been reported that Sony plans to release a special Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 bundle that will bundle the console with the game for free.
According to a new ad shared by Charlie Intel, the PS5 Slim Disc Edition will be available starting November 10, bundled with a copy of Call of Duty MW3 for $500. The ad also shows that the new bundle will include a DualSense controller, which isn’t surprising because Sony has been selling the bundled version of the console for much less in previous PlayStation 5 Slim releases.
For those still on the fence about acquiring a new PS5 or have been holding out on upgrading their existing system, this is an excellent opportunity to pick up an all-new PlayStation 5 that’s likely to be one of the most popular gaming systems for the holiday season. With games like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Call of Duty MW3 already launching in just a few days, this looks to be a solid bundle that should help the new Slim model find a broad audience among gamers this year.
Whether or not you’re in the market for a new PS5 right now, this is a deal to watch. The ad’s official release date is November 10, and there are no details yet about which retailers will sell it or at what prices.
