The mechanical design of M.2 dictates that it has limited insertion cycles, you can't just make it easier to 'hot swap' as that'll cause more issues. The drive bays for PS3 and PS4 were more accessible because SATA is simply a more robust connection (think like an engineer) and less chance for users to break it.

Most PS5 users probably won't even upgrade anyway, unless they are the kind of folks that never delete anything.

As I mentioned previously, it'll be interesting to see how exactly they've shaved the weight.
The Xbox Series X is a similar weight too (~4.5kg), you wouldn't want to drop one on your foot, put it that way. :P

IIRC a large shared L3 is even better than infinity cache, as the bandwidth and transfer speed are higher :hypnodisk:
