Ordinarily tech enthusiasts have to wait until after a product launch to tear a device open and take a look at its inner workings, but the folks at Sony are apparently so proud of their upcoming PlayStation 4 console that they've pre-empted the usual process with an inside-look of their own.
In a video published by Wired, Sony Engineering Director Yasuhiro Ootori dons the white gloves and pulls apart the new console piece by piece, and identifies and describes the function of each component.
Ootori-san reminds us that the 2.5" 500GB harddrive will be user-replaceable with a faster or larger capacity model, and that the power supply is built into the chassis, eshewing the need for a large external power brick.
