Obviously, taking apart your PS5 requires not only certain tools, but also some confidence in your DIY skills. As indicated Gamespot, disassembling the PS5 can also cause the manufacturer’s warranty (2 years) to be waived on the console.

Remember that the PS5 is available in two versions, namely a standard edition, at 499 €, but also in “Digital” edition, at only 399 €.
