Is Sony planning a Playstation 5 with a removable drive?

Henderson cites anonymous sources, according to which the new device will have largely the same hardware as the current Playstation 5. The big change: The drive should be removable and connect to a USB-C port on the back of the console to let. This could ultimately make the PS5 a little slimmer and lighter.

The new Playstation 5 is said to be sold both in a bundle with the drive and as a single console. And you should be able to buy the drive itself separately, so that you don’t have to buy a completely new device if a part breaks.
