All the components inside the PS4 Pro laid bare.
Teardown videos are always fun. On one hand, they provide accurate details about the exact components used in electronics, removed from the PR machine. On the other, they’re fun to watch because they display the fine engineering that went into making these devices, particularly when it comes thermals.
In the video below, YouTube channel VirtualFutureTV unscrews every screw on the PS4 Pro to reveal what lies beneath. There are layers upon layers of metal sheets, plastic covers and more.
If you’re looking for a more official take on the teardown, you can watch this other video directly from Sony. Keiichi Aoki, Sony’s director of mechanical design is the one doing the teardown this time, and he’s explaining what every bit is.
The video is in Japanese, but subtitles are hard-coded.
One cool thing the Sony video has is that it shows you where exactly the hard drive is located on the unit, in case you’re looking to replace the drive.
PlayStation 4 Pro is out now, priced $400.
