PS4 teardown video shows what's under the hood

Have a look at what's powering Sony's next-gen console

There are some people who get all hot and bothered at the sight of processors, heatsinks and disc drives in the raw. If you fit into this category, you might want to prepare a cold shower.

This video, courtesy of Wired, shows the first 'teardown' of the PlayStation 4, showing all its inner workings.

This isn't any amateur teardown where some knob pre-orders a PS4 and forces it open with a sledgehammer, though. This is the real deal.

The video is hosted by Sony engineering director Yasuhiro Ootori, who knows the console inside-out. There's no speculation or "I wonder if this is the RAM" rubbish here - everything Ootori-san says is 100 per cent fact. Sexy hardware-based fact, told by a man wearing white Mickey Mouse gloves.

In August, when Sony announced a PS4 release date of November 15 in the US and November 29 in Europe, the company said more than one million PS4 pre-orders had been placed worldwide.
