The assembly process will be extremely interesting to me. Specially how they apply that liquid metal and the surrounding enclosure. There was one for PS4 maybe? I forgot...

I'll be up anyways. This is so annoying honestly, it's literally a strip tease. They're dangling in front of us.
But it's really genuis PR/MARKETING. Having all these professional unboxing videos lay in front our eyes, just straight up teasing us.... So well calculated but makes me so much more thirsty !

If there is one thing I hate about the internet it’s unboxing videos.....most people simply open that shit up quickly and throw all the ties and plastic back in the box and put it in the recycling bin

When these consoles become Retro those boxes are worth quite the money depending on condition.

Lol they'll be there when I wake up

I'm not really sure what they're allowed to show tomorrow. We know what it looks like so the box isn't that interesting on its own, but noise and heat tests?

Oh I know. I have all my boxes. I just find unboxing videos to be pretty silly. Now so if it's a product you're already buying

They're good for special editions with figurines or custom consoles. You definitely want to see if the goods match the renders and marketing material. But yeah a barebone console doesn't offer much of excitement in that regard.

I'm actually quite excited to see but it's still not worth setting an alarm and waking up at some early hour. That's a little too much just to see some packaging. Some people need their life checked lol
