PS4 essentials: does it overheat?

ps4 overheating

The first time I heard my PS4 fans kick into overdrive it was more than a little troubling (not to mention annoying). Those familiar with laptops and other fan cooled electronics know that, most of the time, things are kept to a quiet whir.

But sometimes, especially for those with older PS4’s, it can seem like your console is taking off from a runway. The noise can be so loud that you may even question whether the PS4 can overheat to the point of damage.

The short of it?

PlayStation 4 consoles do have the potential to overheat, but you probably won’t have to worry about such a scenario in most cases (and with certain precautions taken).

A couple standout special editions like the 20th Anniversary Edition and Destiny 2 PS4 Pro Bundle added some flare to the otherwise conservative console lineup and, as a whole, Sony has continued to prioritize its gaming first mantra.

Whether high end Bluetooth headphones or 4K TVs, the importance of elegance is something that can be seen across most of Sony’s consumer electronics, and in the case of its latest consoles, the principle falls in the hands of Tetsu Sumii.

More Fuel to the Hype Filled Microsoft XO18 Fire

Despite Halo Infinite’s absence, Microsoft’s XO18 to be held in November marks a sort of celebratory status for the Xbox division’s return to form. I’ve spent much of this generation watching the Xbox One from the sidelines, only recently playing more of the system, and it’s been a journey signed with valleys and peaks to say the least. Phil Spencer’s commitment to making the Xbox One a fantastic place to play, and Satya Nadella’s support of Microsoft’s gaming division, have made its most recent years a joy to watch. What’s more, the possibilities for the Xbox Scarlett, the successor to the Xbox One, are as tangible as ever.
