Xbox Series X Looks Easier To Open & Clean Than PS5 In Teardown Video

Recommended Posts


A Brazillian YouTuber has his hands on the Xbox Series X a little over a week early, and he's provided a teardown video that shows just how stuffed Microsoft's black tower really is. Upon its reveal, the Xbox Series X's strange size was a big talking point. The console, which was seemingly designed to be vertical rather than the more traditional horizontal, resembled a miniature PC tower. While gamers compared it to a fridge because of that slab shape and its perceived size, it wound up being the smaller of the two next-gen machines this holiday.

Sony has already provided an official teardown of its PlayStation 5 in a manner that fits perfectly with the culture of the tech giant. In the video, a man clinically takes apart the machine bit by bit over seven minutes in a stark white room. It gave players a chance to look at every perceivable part of the machine before they brought it into their home, including the seemingly easy to remove white plastic flaps on either side. While many assumed that this would lead to customization options both official and unofficial, Sony has already shut down one attempt to sell console shells for its hardware.

Brazillian YouTuber Detonating Gueek is providing the Xbox side of the teardown equation for the time being, although in an unofficial capacity. Detonating Gueek shows that all it takes to reveal the innards of Microsoft's most powerful console is removing two screws and a panel. The back has almost no room to breathe, with disc drives stacked on top of SSDs like a particularly well-crafted Resident Evil 4 inventory. Detonating Gueek starts to pull out the parts and even reveals one hidden secret, a small Master Chief helmet icon printed on the fan at the top of the device. Considering how important Halo Infinite was going to be at one point to the console's launch, that's a nice touch.
