The security case does have ventalation.  You can see the holes on the bottom clearly and I'm guessing they exist on the top as well.

Albeit I'm sure it isn't sufficient.


1. Those holes are not sufficient for proper ventilation.

2. Apparantly its "Red line of warning". The system works. It just went to safe mode.

Let's not forget the plastic case has no feet and stands on a plastic stand. Great way to seal those two holes at the bottom....

Cant blame them. Its for security purpose. If they use something like cage people might not see it properly.

Talk about blowing things out of proportion.

360 RRoD = Console is dead.
PS4 RL = Console shuts down due to excess heat and works again when proper ventilation is achieved.


How do you even attempt to compare the two?


It's more like a Red Line of Preservation.


who are you even talking to?  who is comparing them?


OP mentions RRoD. Take up your issue with him.

 

"Here is the nightmare of early adopters."

"I hope Sony knows it cost Microsoft an estimated $1 billion for RROD issues."

Plus it is being called a "Red Line of Death" when it is anything but.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

I don't care what console it is, you don't put those things in a case with so little ventilation. That's stupid. That being said, it's good to know that the system prevents itself from melting down. If I'm not mistaken it was reported that the Xbox One does the same thing, right?

Well Xbone needs to do that... if not then it is a new RROD.

You need to keep up to date on your news.  MS already stated that the console will inform users if it gets to hot and shut down just like the newer 360.  Also there are many areas where the X1 cools itself and it can shut down specfic areas within the chip to prevent the system from turning off completly.  Read up on it, it will help you to not make such post.

That's what I wrote



Looks like an isolated issue. Could just imagine the parodies and etc. if it was a widespread issue at retail that actually killed the console like RROD and YLOD did....

Wonderful irony, I have just been informed that the console strip light is only capable of displaying in varying intensities of blue, from unlit to bright white.
There is physically no way for it to display red.

Take that news however you want.

Quoting self for awareness.

Apparently, no one noticed your post(s).

But from the thread this come from, the poster is very pleased with the console and the time he spend with it. There's even someone who asks him if the light bar changes color and he replies that no, that only turns red if the temps rises too much, and I asume he knows that because the Sony workers said that when opening the stand.

Btw, who told you that it can't change color, only brightness?



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Put any electronic device in an enclosed plastic case with little to no airflow and it'll most likely overheat. At least the PS4 shut itself off and warned them via the Red Line of Warning (RLoW).

I'm coining that term/acronym here now BTW.





Frequency said:
So is there a reason its called 'of death' in the title? Dramas sake?

Nope. Which is why I dubbed it the RLoW, Red Light of Warning. Seems more appropriate.
