Sony has published a 7-minute video tearing down the PlayStation 5. The teardown gives us a very detailed look at the internal parts of Sony’s next-gen super console. Yashuhiro Ootori, the head of Sony’s mechanical design for PS5 leads the teardown.
The white side panels can be removed without the use of tools which gives you access to the removeable M.2 slot.
It is clear from the video that the PS5 will have a high repairability score.
“We’ve also highlighted the mechanism in the video that we’ve incorporated into the PS5 console to make the operating sounds even quieter,” explained Masayasu Ito, head of hardware engineering and operation at Sony Interactive Entertainment. “After an extensive and complex trial and error process, we were pleased with the end result and I can not wait for our fans to get their hands on the PS5 console and ‘hear’ it for themselves.”
Sony’s PS5 console will go on sale for $499 or $399 for the Digital Edition in the US on November 12th, with a launch in the other parts of the world on November 19th.
