PlayStation 4: Unboxing and Teardown

This is a video from Wired and its all about the PlayStation 4. The latest game console from Sony, in the effort to reclaim its spot at the top of the home gaming world. Sony engineering director Yasuhiro Ootori tears down the PS4 after a quick unboxing. Wired’s author says: “The system is designed under the leadership of Mark Cerny — an American software designer — the PS4 is a machine that is simple yet powerful. The idea was to make it as easy as possible for developers to build games to rival anything on the market. The key to this philosophy is the main processor, which combines a CPU, the brains of a computer, with a GPU, which typically handles graphics. In the teardown, you can see this chip, but also the 8GB of GDDR5 memory, the optical drive, the heat pipes, the centrifugal fan, and whatever else you wanna geek-out on”
