The exterior of the PS5, with a two-tone color scheme and a curved shell that makes the console look like an alien spacecraft or a giant cable modem, is a strange and eye-catching design. But the interior of the system, as revealed in the teardown video, is more conventional when it comes to electronics equipment like gaming consoles. That’s not to suggest that the PS5’s internal layout isn’t innovative or impressive, but it’s not like the unique design of the Xbox Series X, with its split motherboard and stacked assembly of components, which an Xbox engineer described to Digital Foundry as a “sort of 3D Tetris game.”
