We’re nonetheless a bit over a month away from the official launch of the PlayStation 5, however we have already acquired the first public teardown of the console hardware courtesy of Sony itself.
Chief amongst them is an indication of how the system’s round black stand works. When the PS5 is positioned vertically, the stand is held in place with a single giant screw. When that screw is eliminated, it may be saved in a compartment within the base, and a small cap fills within the screw gap within the system itself.
PS5 house owners will use the identical base when inserting the PS5 horizontally, seemingly to present a flat floor for the system’s gentle curves to relaxation on. In this configuration, although, the bottom merely snaps into place alongside a set of marks on a kind of white panels, no screw required.
Speaking of these white panels, the teardown video reveals that they are often popped off simply with out instruments. Just “lift the back corner and slide it off,” because the video explains it. With the white panels off, customers get quick access to the skin of the system’s cooling fan, which attracts in air from each side of the system via two lengthy aspect vents on the entrance and a rear vent that runs the whole size of the system.
The internal shell additionally options two “dust catcher” holes that may be simply vacuumed out, in keeping with Sony. That must be welcome information for PS4 house owners who’ve gotten used to ripping open the system and blasting it with canned air to take away system-clogging mud.
