Take a look at what’s inside a PlayStation 4

Wired PS4

Wired magazine has become the first publication to take a peak inside the black box that is the PlayStation 4. Their in-depth photos and article show pretty much everything that’s inside the console, from the motherboard with its APU and RAM, to the harddrive, the Blu-ray drive, the cooling system, and everything else. Check out the full gallery here.

We’ve added an awesome animated GIF below, which shows the different components coming together to create what we know as the PlayStation 4.

    Some tech nerds will be having an orgasim looking at this. But to me it’s just motherboards and shit. We just want to play the damn consoles not open them up.

      I wouldn’t mind buying an additional PS4 just to get inside it. Controllers are off limits for me.

    Aaaaannnndddd… STILL nothing on the CPU. The cpu must the really slow (probably slower than Xbox) since they refuse to talk about it.

  • Deezy
