Wccftech publication found outthat Sony will deactivate optical disc support for the PlayStation 5 Slim when you log out of your account. This may become a problem for owners of this console in Russia, because it will be impossible to activate the disk drive due to regional blocking of services.
The drive is activated only after logging into your account and is deactivated after logging out or resetting the console to factory settings. You cannot use a deactivated drive, that is, you will not be able to run games, not only downloaded online, but also purchased on disk.
PlayStation 5 Slim in digital and disc versions went on sale in some countries around the world this month, and in Russia this console will go on sale after the New Year. Sony does not officially supply its devices to Russia, so they will be imported through gray schemes and the method of parallel import.
