Over in Australia, a few people have found new PS5 models being sold in stores. However, don’t get excessively invigorated. These new control center updates aren’t including greater hard drives or all the more impressive equipment. All things considered, these new updates appear to simply make a couple of minor changes, including supplanting a solitary screw.
As revealed by Australian-based gaming outlet Press Start, these new PS5 models were dispatched over to the country last week. Clearly, Press Start accepts that Australia is the principal nation to get shipments of the new models. These new control center games a somewhat changed model numbering plan, highlighting CFI-11XX. (The first dispatch PS5 consoles use CFI-1XXX.) These control center models give off an impression of being almost indistinguishable. One little change is another screw used to append the PS5 to its stand. Previously, this screw must be fixed or released utilizing an apparatus. Presently, the little screw has been changed and you can do everything manually. What an opportunity to be alive.
Back in May, another remote correspondence module was enlisted by Sony for use in another PS5 model. The new module replaces the J20H100 wifi module utilized in all dispatch PS5 machines. However, until somebody with the abilities and instruments gets their hands on one of these new Aussie PS5s, we can’t know without a doubt if this module is in there and on the off chance that it clarifies the weight distinction.
