PS5's giant fan explains the size of the console

The PlayStation 5's size has come into question since the day it was first revealed, but now thanks to Sony's teardown video, it has been revealed why that is. The explanation comes via an article from Japan's Nikkei Xtech, which features an interview with PS5 Mechanical and Thermal Design Engineer, Yasuhiro Ootori, who was in the teardown video. The PS5 is equipped with a 120mm diameter, 45mm thick double-sided intake fan, which makes the console thicker than the both PS4 and PS4 Pro. Given that the console requires airflow on both sides, explains its thicker design.
