Watch a PlayStation 4 being taken apart

1 min read


Whenever a new bit of electronics is released, you get to watch some idiot with a screwdriver take it apart, pretending he really knows what’s going on inside the thing. It’s called a “teardown.” In this case, that idiot is actually Sony’s hardware engineering director, Yasuhiro Ootori – who probably knows a thing or two about the PlayStation 4. Watch him take a PS4 apart.

Even though I’ve seen and touched a PS4, I still can’t get over how small it is (that’s what she said), especially when compared to the positively behemoth Xbox One.

Watch, enjoy. Video courtesy of

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
