    While Microsoft has provided some select outlets with the actual Xbox Series X hardware, Sony's PlayStation 5 has yet to be seen up close by the public. The console maker changed this narrative today by releasing an official teardown video of its next-gen console, giving us the closest (and deepest) look at the hardware so far.

    The 7-minute video is in Japanese but is without English subtitles at the time of writing. However, it does feature English annotations of some parts of the console as the teardown proceeds such as an elaborate cooling system and an SSD expansion bay. You can watch the video showcasing the PS5's internals below:


    Sony also published an accompanying blog post explaining how the PS5's internal structure was designed to look "neat and tidy" and did not include any unnecessary components. The post also mentions how the PS5 was conceptualized back in 2015 and spent the next 5 years designing and developing the console.

    I'll tell something silly and useless, but I took this long to notice how big the PS5 is. I think it is the first time I saw it with a person next to it.

    Dude, 1st Gen PS3 was enormous, too! And heavy.

    But that aside, the fact that PS3 60GB (and 20GB) were and are able to play three generations of game consoles without hacking is awesome.

    Well, they can't afford or don't want to spend on it.

    For most people who want to game, they'd rather just buy a console, plug and play than buy parts for his/her PC.

    My gosh! It is so huge! What are they thinking ? Its 2020! And they should design it to be comfortable, small and super powerful. Are they just lazy or something ?

    I am so getting it, thought!

    That's coming later called PS5 Pro and Xbox Series X Elite or something.

    You just know it's gonna happen.

    The generation of big game enjoyment harware. XBOX and PlayStation are now competing for livingroom space. We should charge for rental. Those things are enourmous. Those things are friggin' huge.

    Guess no one can say now "Mine is bigger than yours!"
    Will they even fit?! "Wii Fit", they'll say.
