For now, the services necessary for registration are working, but nothing lasts forever
Sony has just started selling its updated PlayStation 5 Slim game console . Users online began to express concern about such an important detail of the new product as the console’s removable disk drive.
The removable drive of the Sony PlayStation 5 Slim may eventually turn into a “brick”
The more compact, updated console itself does not have an optical drive, but users can buy it separately and connect it to the console. As previously reported, this will require an Internet connection.
Now there are reports that resetting the console will also deregister the drive. This means that the user will have to register it again online, otherwise the device will not work correctly. The concern is that the device may become unusable over time, given that online services do not last forever. The same problems can presumably arise with the internal drive.
In addition to support for a removable drive, the new version of the console comes with some improvements such as a 1TB SSD and two USB Type-C ports.
