Sony released the PlayStation 5 “Slim” in November 2023, and now the refreshed gaming console is available at its lowest price ever.

Currently on sale for $449 (regularly $499.99) at Walmart, the new PS5 “Slim” Disc Edition retains the same specs and features as the previous model, including 4K gaming with HDR (High Dynamic Range) for vivid colors and deep blacks, up to 120FPS (Frames Per Second) with 120Hz output for smooth action, and backwards compatibility with PS4 games.

However, it is more than 30% smaller by volume and 18% lighter.
