Sony did an official PS5 Teardown on their official PlayStation channel few moments ago and of course we here on PSFAN.NET was already expecting that since when Mark Cerny promised on his The Road To PS5 presentation in March 2020. if you haven’t seen it yet and want to see it or need a refresher we listed it down below for your viewing pleasure!
Let’s dive into today’s PS5 teardown. We took some guerilla style screenshot from the video and decided to give a little description what was shown and what we think about it. Let’s start!
All and all we are very impressed by the design of the PS5. Seems like they really spend extra attention to the cooling this time around and the SSD upgrade path is sensible without any proprietary components. Just make sure the drive you are buying match the needed specs for the PS5.
