    This one is better, even if Francis is intentionally being a douche in the video.

    Wired had an excellent strip down of the internals of the PS4 done by Sony that is worth a look, can't find it on their site for some reason, looks like a superb bit of system design.

    Found it.

    Surprising how much of the system is the PSU, the PS4 could be tiny if they took Microsofts external PSU approach.

    So they're following something along the lines of Daft Punk's Random Access Memories album unboxing.

    And how much empty space there is on the main board, it seem you could almost fit the whole thing on a PCB the size of an average graphics card.

    Would make a lovely add-in card for my PC :D I'd give up a GPU for that.

    Its the size it is because it houses all the ports and drive connectivity around all sides of the PS4 and antenna etc. probably minimal layers for cheapness too, pretty neat job for launch.

    Every time I see this dude I think he's trying so hard to be uber cool and sees himself as the Japanese Steve Jobs or something.

    But he's just a fail bucket full of fail.

    He's very approachable though. Very active on twitter. Responds to most questions without beating around the bush. very refreshing for a company president.

    I wonder what the XBONE packaging includes. Maybe a diagram trying explaining why 720p at 30 fps is actually a good thing for $500?
