South Africans are now able to purchase the PS5 Slim at several outlets. Having launched in most regions towards the end of 2023, the slimmed-down version of the console has finally arrived in South Africa. The console is offered at a retail price of R11,999 for the Digital Edition and R13.999 for the disc version available on Takealot, Koodoo, and BT Games.

It’s relevant to note that the new PS5 Slim requires you to purchase an extra vertical stand for it to stand upright, which comes with an added cost. It’s anticipated that this stand might cost around R800.

There are also several PS5 Slim design plates projected to be released in the future, and this is the start of the official phasing out of the older PS5 model.
