Kotaku report on the damaged PS5 console
“Unfortunately, the fear of a rather expensive machine dying (which now it’s much easier to get) mixed with vague language, led to misunderstandings. In the original video, TheCod3r can be heard saying that the notorious console leaking liquid metal ‘had never been opened’.” explains the portal.
“This was what Wololo misquoted and has since issued a correction. TheCod3r was mistakenly believed to be referring to the console’s packaging, which may have never been taken out of the box. This is not true. TheCod3r was referring to the console itself, physically, being opened up, probably for repair.
