Follow up to yesterday's Xbox 360 Elite tear-down, here is the PS3 tear-down video.
no game in the disc tray...figures kidding!:P
if it would be the 360 it would be, "melted game in the 360 disk tray" figures
i like these tear downs. This is not being a fan boy but the 360 tear down was more informative. I wanted to know the date on that elite that they used. I want to know when they replace that chip that they say will stop the RROD issue. If they did a tear down early next year on the newest elites it would really help me decide on getting the 360. It still has the old chip! anyway i like seeing systems getting tore down! The PS3 looked like a space craft when they first started. peace
A very tidy and well built machine.
yep agreed. Im also glad Sony delayed the launch of PS3 to spend more time on fixing PS3. Now PS3 is doing well. 0.01% failure rate.
Can't wait for Wii teardown when they find a tiny PS2 inside plus sensors engine. j/k
Wii teardown - they will probably go like "wth?!? there is a gamecube inside!!!" :)
i have had my system on for hours and if there is a problem im sure i will find out. And i dont mean 4-5 hours! I have left it on for 18-20 a few times this past couple weeks. My DSL is a bit slow and downlaoding demos and videos really take some time.
i have had a couple times over the summer holiday when i have had my Xbox 360 running games like gears/Crackdown/Forza 2 for more then 24 hours straight lol (not just me playing but as it stayed on, it still counts) i can no longer do this with college back on, but it was fun while it lasted lol
my ps3 stays on most of the time.very cool very quite .runs very well
you dont know me, you dont know how long i have stayed on my Xbox 360 for, and you dont know what games i have or how long it has stayed on for at any time. so who ever disagreed with me you are obviously a fanboy. i HAVE had my Xbox 360 running for over 24 hours straight a few times FACT i also have my first console, and its still working perfectly FACT. deal with it.
Very cool, now lets see him to make a try and put all together again and make it work! :) I DARE YA
even if he put it back together he didn't wear a esd strap so he fried the electronics with static electricity
even its insides are pretty!
just like you
@ Gololo: With the demography here on the site, I'd presume that it's a guy you just told that. :D Edit: I take that back, the gender says: female, so unless that really is a guy, you made a terrible one-liner there, son.
and i'm married.
@7.3, I am assuming your husband used a brilliant one liner like that to sweep you off your feet. =) gololo, You're an idiot.
definitely. i think it went: "you're pretty, even your insides, will you marry me?' and the deal was made.
@Syko 360: dude why am I an idiot, I simply think that it was a pretty picture and it was a compliment, that's it. Sorry if I offended anyone.
I've seen this video quiet a few times over the past few months and it's still slightly painful to watch him use that screw driver to pop the lid off. However just lookin at the rest of the guts of the PS3 makes me proud that i got good value for my money.
more than slightly painful.
that hurt me too.
You can tell how much work was put into designing this system. Reminds me of the Apple G5 Towers which look great, even when taken apart. PS3 has a really good heat dissipation system to boot. =]
My thoughts as well - in particular, the cooling solution looks very original and well engineered.
wish it had some games i wanted to play this year.. :(
I hope that the engineers at Microsoft took notes
At the very beginning... That guy has no idea how to take the faceplate off. He's prying at it like a little kid, even though it's designed to just slide right off with no force at all. My 9 year old brother figured that out.
look above my name #10 i would never take off the faceplate on this thing. If it breaks it wont be no easy fix like the disk read error but im pretty sure it will never break. I have run this thing hard for weeks!
More sheet metal than optimus prime it's a wonder this thing don't weigh 75 pounds. LOL
lol i had to laugh at this +bubbles
all metal cases on each part, that makes it solid and it's harder to break when fall.
LOL looks like he was flicking us off while pointing to some of the hardware!
