Sony thinks you ll like the PlayStation 4 so much that it s willing to rip one apart just to show you why. Wired went to Sony s headquarters in Japan to take a look at the PlayStation 4 s innards just days before the new console is scheduled to release on November 15th and has posted a video showing off just what makes the next-generation console tick.

What stands out most at first is just how easy the PS4 seems to be to take apart unlike your typical glue-filled iOS device, Sony s console packs a lot of power into its console frame and holds it together using a fairly small number of screws. The most tantalizing part of this comes when you see that the PS4 s 500GB hard drive is held in place by just one screw, which makes it incredibly easy to remove it and replace with a bigger hard drive. This will be particularly important since the gaming industry is moving away from disk-based games and toward digital downloads that are supported through the cloud.
Other highlights from the teardown show off the console s internal power supply that s located conveniently within the console s body; its CPU-GPU one-chip integration processor; and its 85-millimeter centrifugal fan that keeps the console cool.
Wired s full video of the teardown follows below.
