Sony has taken to their official PlayStation blog to show the interior design of the all new PlayStation 4 Pro and how to properly open it without voiding the warranty.
Although the primary ambition of the video is to show the engineering prowess of the PS4 Pro, the host made sure to actually detail how to properly open the mid-generation console. Ultimately, the teardown video doesn’t go into the specifics of how to clean or upgrade the PS4 Pro, however the PlayStation blog does go deeper into those details in the official FAQ.
Much like the original PS4, the PS4 Pro is not compatible with external hard drives to expand the standard 1TB of memory. However, thanks to the official teardown video, technically savvy gamers will be able to not only take a can of WD-40 to a dusty cooling fan, but upgrade the internal hard drive once they inch closer to the 1TB limit.
There is a lot of potential to opening up a console for basic maintenance, and Sony has taken a step towards ensuring your new PS4 Pro and the warranty are intact when you’re done.
