The brand new PlayStation 5 hasn’t come out but — it doesn’t actually have a particular launch date — however a couple of YouTubers have gotten their palms on it, together with Dave Lee from the Dave2D channel. Lee posted his teardown of the console yesterday, and if you happen to’ve been inquisitive about how that removable disc drive works, that is one of the best look you’ll get at it with out shopping for the $499.99 PS5 your self later this month.

After Lee pries off the PS5’s plastic aspect cowl, you possibly can see the drive sitting there with three screws staring again at you. I assumed they had been pentalobe screws at first, however a later zoomed-in shot reveals they’re simply customary crosshead screws. Philips head, if you happen to like. Okay, no surprises there. Good.
