*PHHhewwww...beep beep* that's probably the sound many of you heard when playing your fat PS3 on a hot summer day. Will history repeat itself with the PS4? Doesn't seem like it. According to this FCC analysis (Via the Escapist) the new console will run at a much cooler speed.
While the Playstation 3 was said to run between 113 degrees to 131 degrees Fahrenheit, the Playstation 4 will run between 41 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. That's great but will this stop the overheating issues that plagued fat PS3's? Well based on the info above it should last for quite a while before running into any overheating issues. Of course there's nothing stopping it from running into other kinds of issues. But then again I'm sure Sony is running crazy tests on the system. Let's stay positive and hope for a steady healthy first batch of PS4's.
