Electrician Tries to Fix Broken PS4, Makes Startling Discovery



A electrician in Brazil was attempting to fix a busted PlayStation 4, when he discovered a dead snake inside, fused with internal circuits in multiple places.

According to the ViralHog video, the electrician's bug report stated, "It turned on and then off, and it released a strong smell." So the man opened up the console, thinking it might be an electrical failure. What he found was the the remains of the small snake.

As you can see in the video, the snake had fused with the circuit board, resulting in the electrical problem--and a nasty smell, apparently.

Check out the full video above (via CNET). There is no word on how the snake got into the console or what species it is.

This incident occurred in December 2015, in Braganca Paulista, Sao Paulo, though the video only came online this week. This does not mean Metal Gear Solid 6 is confirmed.
