Watch As This PS5 Gets Destroyed In A Grinder

This video might be difficult to watch if you haven't been able to buy a PS5 yet.

31 Comments

The PlayStation 5 has finally arrived, ushering in the next generation of gaming from Sony. The console is selling very well, and stock has sold through at most retailers. As such, this video we're about to share might be difficult to watch for those who remain in the hunt for a next-gen system.

Someone has acquired a PS5 only to place it into one of those machines that destroys everything. It is a terrifying video, with the cracking and crunching sounds standing out as particularly painful to hear as the console gets literally shred to pieces. If you don't have a PS5 yet, it's even harder to watch. Have a look:

Sony has promised that more PS5 units will be available for purchase later this year, so if you've been shut out thus far, there is still hope. You can follow GameSpot's PS5 ordering page to stay up to date on how to get a console for yourself when they become available. They have periodically popped up at retailers like Walmart over the last few weeks.

In other PlayStation news, a leak has suggested that God of War protagonist Kratos is coming to Epic's battle royale game Fortnite after Sony injected $250 million into the developer.

Someone is just getting their kicks at the luck of others who are still unable to get one yet.

This is just wasteful.

I came here to ask why, but I know why. Some people just feed off of hate and impotent rage. They want clicks, attention, and to drink the tears of all those who decry them.

Basically, just a small person unworthy of the attention of being given an article at a gaming news website. Can we avoid giving publicity to people who just want to get a rise out of people? It's just so petty... The most appropriate response is to simply roll your eyes and move on.

Please, in the future observe the above stated behavior and just let it pass. You can be better than this.

This reminds me of last gen when people would get a console on launch night and then smash it in front of all the other people waiting in line to get one.

@thecupidstunts: Can you imagine the damage they have sustained to their psyche before this to make them do such a thing? I would like to probe their brains.

This schmuck probably got it for free also. Meanwhile, the rest of us have to fight scalpers, bots, and scalper bots just to get one to actually play. Pathetic that this is what gets attention or is even an article on this site.

Just when I was starting to think that GameSpot might actually be turning itself around and getting away from click-bait...

So funny! I'm just glad we have quality content like this bringing us what every gamer wants to see...

I really don't understand videos like these. What a waste.

Hope this happens to all the PS5s bought up by scalpers.

They wake up the next morning and all their precious bounty is shredded to pieces.

This is a PS5.
This is a PS5 when you put it into rest mode.

@xantufrog: Hate. That's all it is. Some people love only to take the things others love, and then destroy them.
