New Video Shows You How to Crack Open Your PS4

The folks at iFixIt have given us a great video showing how easy it will be to repair our broken PS4 should the need arise.

Being a geek and technology nerd comes with a certain desire to take things apart that seems to be natural among our kind. Techies always want to know what drives the machines they are using in their homes. This innate urge to deconstruct always seems to manifest itself in the day to day, but especially when new hardware hits store shelves.

To satisfy our lust for tinkering, the fine folks at iFixIt have made a video showing how to take apart the PlayStation 4. The video not only shows how to invade the inner workings of the console, but also gives the PS4 a rating on how well it can be repaired should any of the components fail. The PS4 scores surprisingly well on repairability, which should give some reassurance to those who have suffered from dead launch consoles.

From the video, I can tell that PS4 is a lot easier to take apart than the PS3. Should your PS4 get the dreaded malfunction lights, don’t be worried. Between the manufacturer’s warrantee, and the ease of which you can take the console apart yourself, you should be back to gaming in no time.
