Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4 Pro: The Quietest PlayStation 4 To Date

lame. I wanted it to be so loud it sounded like a growl. That way when a burglar tries to break in my house they think a big dog is inside

hype diminished

Didn't Eurogamer say in their review that it was still pretty loud as the fan noise is noticeable and the fan constantly changes speed



Heres a qoute from their written review:
"In terms of the acoustic performance of the Pro, it has much more in common with the c-chassis PS4 than the Slim. We were hoping that the larger console may integrate a larger fan - typically, the larger fan, the slower it needs to spin in order to displace the same amount of heat. We've yet to put the Pro through exhaustive tests here, but we note a peak 55dB during inFamous First Light gameplay, but really it's not so much the loudness that's the issue as opposed to the pitch. The fan spins up and down and is clearly audible from across the room. Initial tests on heat again show a profile similar to the standard PS4"




55DB, no thanks.



Digital Foundry says otherwise but apart from that, it's not surprising it is more silent than my slim PS4 - it is actually quite loud.

Some people would be afraid to play

So ... if it's wrong, 'I told you so' and if it's right 'I'm not impressed'.

Ah, the typical persecution complex that everybody not being completely a Sony fanboy is dismissing everything Playstation. How surprising.

Great news, I can stop duck taping a pair of pillows to my head now.

Duct taping. Plz, PLEASE.

The console being quiet is good news but too bad it's humongous and bigger than OG PS4... I'll wait for the PS4Pro Slim..





“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”
