Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 Teardown Video

I don't know much about electronics, but this is so fascinating to me. I'm really digging the cooling system. My PS4 Pro is not even a year and a half old yet and it's already run hot sometimes and gotten noisy every once in a while. Thankfully, it's never force-stopped due to overheating.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 130 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 110 million (was 73, then 96 million)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

And they wanna sell for $400(digital model) like this, the whole cooling solution equipment looks a lot expensive.

I feel like I need an engineering degree just to lay this console flat. Like why?

If you need an engineering degree to remove one simple screw then I don't think the console is the problem here. 

Point is, the console is way over-designed. It should be nothing more than tipping it to the side. It's a shit design. Worse than Bray Wyatt's goofy mask.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

It's not pretty but it's running cool and that's what's important.

The controller is perfect though and we might even see some cool designs for the console with those replaceable faceplates.

It the PS5 really that big, or is that Asian guy that small?

I think both.  The system sure it's big, but next to the man it seems bigger than it's supposed to.

The disc version seems to have a much more stable base:

Good that I want the disc version.

Actually the point is that after a 7 minute plus video with a lot of helpful information as well as cooling info that many wanted to know,  you have nothing constructive to say other than whining about a screw and tilting it to the side. Whether it actually is an over designed console or not, you have already demonstrated what goofy actually is but thanks for the chuckle.

I guess you use the 'paid assembly' option when you order furniture online.

Actually I appreciate the screw. Otherwise what attach it to the stand? Of course I'm also not the one making multiple posts aggressively defending their annoyance at having to undo a basic screw.

So odds are one us is having a much worse day than another.

  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

What happens if i dont both with that stand and just lay it on its side?
