Gadgets 360 was able to confirm that both the PlayStation 5 Slim and PlayStation 5 Slim Digital Edition were available for purchase on Blinkit in both Delhi NCR and Mumbai — the standard edition was in stock in Mumbai, while the digital edition was available in the national capital with a 14-minute delivery window.

The slimmed down version of the 2021 PlayStation 5 model does not offer improved processor and graphics performance, but you do get more storage on the new variant — 1TB of storage vs Sony’s older 825GB drive. The PS5 Sim takes up 30 percent less space and is 24 percent lighter than the original model, according to Sony.
