PS5 Pro to have a detachable disc drive?
The upcoming PS5 Pro is expected to come with a detachable disc drive. This might be done to reduce the shipping and manufacturing costs of the company and let users decide whether they want a disc drive or not. Currently, there are 2 versions of PS5-Digital and Disc. The upcoming PS5 Pro is rumored to come with a USB Type-C port to connect the detachable disc. This model might be called PS5 Slim as well.
