PS5 teardown

Sony has released an official PS5 teardown video to show fans the internal components of the next-gen console. 

Released on YouTube, the seven-minute PS5 teardown is the first official look at the next-gen hardware outside of product renders. It’s also the first proper look at the back at the console.

On the PlayStation Blog, more details of the next-gen console’s development were revealed including information about the system’s five-year journey from concept to production.

“We felt it was inevitable to make a generational leap in terms of performance in order to deliver a new, next-generation gaming experience. However, to do so, we had to balance every aspect of the system, from focusing on reducing the noise level to enhancing the cooling capacity, more than ever before,” said EVP of hardware engineering and operation, Masayasu Ito.

Ito expressed his joy at the cooling mechanism designed for the PlayStation 5, a part of the system that was designed to make the console as quiet as possible. They even incorporated liquid metal for cooling purposes.

“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,” Ito said.

PlayStation 5 launches on November 12th in some regions and November 19th in others for £449.99 or £359.99 for the Digital Edition. PS5 games will launch before the system in some regions. If you like the PS5 teardown, check out the internals of the DualSense controller.
