We take our retro gaming very seriously here. So, when we saw this video taking a brand new PS5 and retro buying it, we were intrigued.
The 12 and a half minute video was made by YouTube channel DIY perks and encases the console in an American dark walnut wood shell. The video points out that the internal workings of the PS5 are actually quite compact, and the reason for the bulky casing is to make room for the cooling heat sink. So, taking the components and creating a new press and cooling system takes a bit of size off the original case. Mostly, it just looks cool as hell and we want one.
Since this is a one off-build, it isn't something that can be bought, unfortunately. However, the video does show a step-by-step, so if you think you're crafty enough, you can give it a try. If you do, please let us know!
Do you prefer this retro case for the original PS5 case?
