PS4 Pro Ripped Apart in Official Teardown Video

Don't try this at home (you'll lose your warranty).


Sony has released a video showing exactly what a PS4 Pro looks like under its black exterior.

Right at the start, we get to see the hard drive's location, and how to access it, so if you've just picked up a PS4 Pro you now know how to swap out its HDD for an even bigger one, should you wish to do so. Don't carry on replicating the presenter's movements, though--you'll void your warranty! Here's how to change the hard drive on the standard PS4, if you're curious.

Sony claims the PS4 Pro is the world's most powerful console. For the time being at least, they're right: PS4 Pro significantly improves the frame rate and resolution of Final Fantasy XV, for example, while both The Last of Us Remastered and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will also be enhanced. They're not the only games getting updated though--check out the list of every game getting a PS4 Pro upgrade patch.

The upgraded PS4 console, which costs $399/£349/A$560, launched on November 10 to mostly positive reception. In our PS4 Pro review, critic Jimmy Thang said, "The PS4 Pro is priced fairly, offers a plethora of features, and is the most powerful console you can buy today." He did, however, warn he "wouldn't make the upgrade unless you have a 4K HDR TV and the extra cash lying around."
