Take a peek inside the PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4 is set to be released on Nov. 15, just over a week from today, and Wired got a look at the internal components that will power Sony's next-gen console.

Yasuhiro Ootori, director of the PS4's mechanical engineering team, showed off the hardware recently at Sony's Japanese headquarters. In the image above and the video below, you can see the green motherboard, the central component that houses AMD's 64-bit, 8-core APU, which bundles the x86 CPU and GPU together. You can also glimpse the the PS4's 500 GB hard drive, fans, heat syncs, internal power supply and more.
