Sony shows off PlayStation 5 internals in a new teardown video

Sony has lagged behind a bit with the PlayStation 5 coverage in media, in comparison to Xbox. However, it looks like it’s trying to catch up now, as it has just revealed the internals of the PlayStation 5 in a new teardown video.

Sony published the 7-minute video showing the full teardown of the PlayStation. Yasuhiro Ootori, head of mechanical design for the PS5 presented the video in Japanese. Take a look:

The first thing you notice is that the PS5 is as big as Yasuhiro’s torso, basically gigantic for a console. The video showed various aspects of the console, including the cooling fan, vents, dust traps, the liquid metal on the CPU die.

Our opinion? The console looks so much better without the white plastic fairings. As far as the internals go, the engineering is all good, but nothing too fancy. Sony says it has spent two years working on the liquid metal cooling though, so props for that!

Sony PlayStation 5 will go on sale for $499 and $399 for the Digital Edition starting November 12 for the US, and November 19 for Europe and a few other parts. Are you excited? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
