What's with these so called heating/noise issues?? My launch ps4 is quiet. Or was it a ps4 pro problem?

My god, that thing is ridiculously large. Holy hell.

That's what she said.

But idd lol

On a side note, the video is nearing 4.8 million views

And that doesn't count the hundreds of reposts for other languages and discussions.

Some original PS4 are really loud (mine currently is) while some pro are also very loud (mine isn't) guess it is just a game of luck.

My launch PS4 sounded like jet engine on big games, even when it was new. My PS4 slim is quiet though.



Really love everything
the stand: the easy clip on for horizontal, the screw compartment
the cooling system: large fan for a console, massive heat sink, liquid metal
the SSD slot has screws for 30, 42, 60, 80 and it looks to have another higher up for 110.
the easily removable side panels.

It seems like a wildly different design philosophy from PS4. Which seemed to be just make it as small as possible. There's a ton of attention to detail here and it honestly makes it feel like the PS4's design was an after thought, while the PS5's was an important consideration.


It's bigger than the Series X, but I think the trade-off will be that this run just a little cooler as there is more room to heat.

My lauch year PS4 is also not "loud" (fans can be noticeable at times), but it seems that a many PS4s and PS4 Pros get a lot louder over the time, which I suspect is mainly due to the thermal paste being badly applied and drying out, but some say they successfully fought the problem with a different fan model or by cutting holes into the plastic for better ventilation and some simply have too much dust building up in their consoles.

Sony seems to have reacted to the complaints and made sure to implement several methods (capped max power draw achieved with variable clocks; large cooling system; dust traps/access to main fan for easier cleaning; liquid metal layer to conduct heat between APU and cooler, which loses at lot less thermal conductivity when drying out) so that an overwhelming majority of PS5 units never have any noise problems.

Yeah the hype is real. Still trending 7th in youtube after a day. Coming off such a strong last few years of games people are just pumped to see a new PlayStation.

I have a early PS4 and mine can get quite noisy. Especially in demanding games like The Last of Us 2.

This is post PS2 into PS3 sony at its finest. the pS4 always let like a "safe" console. Safe engineering. Keep it simple, just make sure it works type thing.

The PS5 feels like old sony, lets do something crazy, Japanese over-engineering, we thought about everything type sony. Lie there is nothing at all about the PS5, that is normal. You can see that lot of thought and innovation went into everything they put into it. Well... except the PCB and RAM.

I have the launch one and it is a jet engine when I play Horizon Zero... That's not a "so called" thing and I'm not using my console that much... 

Good for you if yours is not making any noise, but the noise of the fan is a well know thing for the Play Station Four. (At least the model I have).

Does not bother me so much cause I'm far from it and the volume of the game is usually masking it but it is very obvious.

For the heating, well as the console is hot while playing, I don't think it is the issue. And I don't think it is more than my Xbox One S or X.

OP: I really like this video; very glad Sony took the time to release that. This is a very nice piece of engineering and I'm 100% sure the new console will be super quiet :)

I have 2 launch consoles and a Pro.  Only one of the launch consoles blew hard for me but it wasn't loud.  It only did it with long Rocket League sessions.
