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

My PS4 Pro is quiet but it's not an old model. I have seen some players on a board saying their old PS4 Pro are not quiet.

As we all know, sometimes the PS4 can be noisy when it gets hot, and at times sound like a jet engine, well according to comicbook.com and bloomberg.com Sony will not skimp on the PS5 cooling system.

comicbook got their info directly from bloomberg. you have 1 source, not 2. 

and there is no WILL NOT here. We have no idea how verifiable Bloomberg info is here. They may be right, they may be wrong. 

Yeah, I still use both because comicbook summarize it in a nice two paragraph while bloomberg has more beefy details. Everything considered I'm just glad that if the source is right then that means the inners of PS5 has high quality parts inside.  



And here I come expecting they actually removed the light bar on the controller.

edit: Wait, so the only "lead" they have on it is that the cooling is slightly more expensive? Could it maybe be that the components are much more powerful and emit a lot more heat? How the fuck are they drawing conclusion on the noise here? I hope whoever cobbled that shitty article together quits being a journalist out of embarrassment.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

PS VR will still be working so I guess the light bar will stay

My PS4 Pro is just as loud as my launch PS4.  If all you play is PS4, maybe you just don't realize how loud it is.  I even find Witcher 3 more enjoyable on Switch docked because of how much quieter it is compared to my PS4.  When I got my X1, it suprised me how much more quiet it was as well considering the 360 was loud as hell.

I would not call it the PS4's biggest problem, nor a problem that ruins the game.  Headset and turning the TV way up helps.  But I have had 3 different PS4s of varying models in my home, and all of them are the loudest console in the house.  My phat PS3 is even quieter TBH.

With that in mind, I have to question the honesty of a person who claims the PS4 is quiet unless they truly have no other console to compare it to.

I have PC also for gaming and it is very loud for gaming. My PS4 Pro is not loud (bought it in 2018).

But no problem, it's always nice to be called a liar when I say the truth. Thank you.

My PS4 Pro is like a JET ENGINE. Even in the damned PS Store.




Mine only ever got loud with Horizon and some other game I can't think of. And that was YEARS after I got mine. Sometimes problems don't present themselves until way down the line.

*Edit* I think the other game that made it run loud was God of War. 

Also wanted to add that I got my PS4 in early 2014 and a PS4 Pro on day one in like 2017.

In general, yes.

In some games it sounds like a jet engine in the first couple minutes.

Uncharted 4 and God of War, when I started those after not playing for a while I feared my PS4 Slim would take flight from my bedroom and head to the airport.

That's one thing I noticed, and it might be just my own impression, is that if I started a game I didn't play in a while it would be the worse, but if I played it again the next day it would be much quieter.

It also gets a lot hotter than I would like it to be, the plastic actually starts making cracking sounds when it gets too hot.

But I had zero actual problems with it.

The fan noise would be lost in the game sound anyway, and the heat never made it even freeze or much less shut down.

So I can't complain.

Maybe depends on the game. Because my Slim is noisy as hell in everything except not demanding games like Persona 5.
