This is what Sony should have done with PS3

I like PC best (also now I am a big fan of Game Pass), but I have to admit, this looks really nice. Hope, the real world usage will be better than the PS4 (in term of heat dissipation).

I wonder how and where the dust bunnies are gonna end up over time on this system. I also wonder how differently the digital version of the PS5 is built apart from the Blue-ray drive its literally the same size. 🤔

Very impressive! All very reassuring.

Ooooo they better hope they're applying that liquid metal right otherwise we've got a failure of a console on our hands.

Don't worry... Cooling systems are about to get even more massive in gaming phones with the SD875 X1... And MTK Dimensity 2000/+... Enjoy 200fps gaming!!! :-)

Why is it so big? It's not just the heatsink that's massive, the whole thing is huge.
