We’re nonetheless a bit over a month away from the official launch of the PlayStation 5, however we have already acquired the primary public teardown of the console {hardware} courtesy of Sony itself.

The Japanese video (with English subtitles) Sony posted Wednesday morning solutions fairly just a few nagging questions left from earlier bulletins and up to date hands-on time from some Japanese press.

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 offer a flat floor for the system’s light curves to relaxation on. On this configuration, although, the bottom merely snaps into place alongside a set of marks on a kind of white panels, no screw required.

Talking of these white panels, the teardown video reveals that they are often popped off simply with out instruments. Simply “carry the again nook and slide it off,” because the video explains it. With the white panels off, customers get easy accessibility to the surface of the system’s cooling fan, which pulls in air from either side of the system by two lengthy facet vents on the entrance and a rear vent that runs your complete size of the system.

The interior shell additionally options two “mud catcher” holes that may be simply vacuumed out, in keeping with Sony. That needs to 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.
