That's not even close to the PS4's biggest problem. It's not even much of a problem at all. I've barely noticed any sound coming from mine.

The PS4's biggest problem? As far as I'm concerned that's got to be the lack of backwards compatibility. If Sony fix that for the PS5 then I'll be happy.

I suppose then it's 2 biggest problems will be fixed. 

It's looking like they'll offer bc too. 

I assume you mean BC for PS4 games?

I do wonder why they wouldnt offer it for PS1-3 games as well, at least popular ones. The console will be well and truly powerful enough to do this via software emulation you would think.

I own a Pro and regular PS4 ,the fan noise puzzles me because it seems to be game related and the jet engine sound doesn't always seem to correspond with on screen activity.



My launch base and launch pro where incredibly loud, my slim I bought last year tho is silent in the same games.

I always found PS3 to be much louder.

But sure, it’s loud. Not the biggest problem I have with it though, that would go to that mess of an UI.



PS4 slim is pretty silent though.

If they make PS5 backwards compatible with every Playstation home console  (that means, putting a PS1/2/3/4 disc on it and playing it), the console will be a must buy for me. No more having to plug and unplug old consoles when I want to play an old game. I wouldn't even care about PS5 actual games. I would have 4 consoles in one xD



Well if components hadnt been locked down ~9 months before release then I'd be worried :P



Many people on the french board I go will be pleased by this news.



I don't think the ventilation system/dust built up is why some PS4s overheat and kick into high fan speed modes - I think it's the thermal paste that either isn't of good quality (it was atrocious in my fat PS3) or is sometimes misapplied in assembly



Huh, guess I take my quiet Xbox X for granted. I had no idea the other side had this problem
