Weirdness: Even the PS4's Screws Are a Work of Art

Posted by Sammy Barker

Nuts and bolts

The build up to the PlayStation 4 has taken us to some strange places, but this is by far the most baffling post that we’re likely to pen all year. The lucky folks over at German technology website Computer Bild managed to get their hands on a pre-release debug unit for Sony’s impending super machine – and promptly started pulling it to bits, as such publications are prone to do.

Out of all its findings, though, the above image caught our eye. If you’re having trouble discerning the snap, it shows one of the console’s screws, which has been individually branded with the PlayStation’s famous face buttons. Frankly, it’s a bizarrely specific detail – but isn’t it just the most amazing thing that you’ve ever seen? Shake your head sternly in the comments section below.

A stunning piece of craftsmanship that harkens back to a time when console manufacturing was a real art worthy of praise. 10/10, would visit Tate Modern again just to see in all its glory.

Considering it's the screw that is used to hold the hard drive in place, probably a sign of sony saying YEAH YOU UPGRADE THAT HDD BRAH

I wonder if any of these screws were used while putting together Apartment 4. If so, it makes the apartment hat much better.

That said, I wonder if Sony plans on selling these because I'd buy some in a second.
