Sony’s next generation console may be suffering from some minor mishaps – but we don’t think that the platform holder’s support department will be sending a replacement for this particular system. YouTube user RatedRR – who’s garnered a fan base by shooting electronics with terrifying weapons – put together this horrifying video of a PlayStation 4 being torn to pieces by a .50 cal sniper rifle.

The first shot goes straight through the system, but it’s the second one that’s particularly shocking. The super slow motion replay shows a shockwave ripping the device to pieces, as the bullet cuts through the console and shoots out of its side. It’s incredible stuff, but it’s also undoubtedly frightening. Still, for as fascinating as the footage is, we're not sure that it's entirely worth the wasted hardware.
