    PS4 has a red line of death



    PS4 Overheating & The Red Line Of Death –

    A photo has surfaced showing a demo PS4 console overheating and displaying what has been dubbed “the red line of death.” The picture was taken at a PS4 event in Spain and posted by Elotrolado member Homer J. Simpson in his report of the event. He says (translated from Spanish) “it had a red light (where the typical blue LED light) and had a message on the screen saying that the console had a very high temperature. The security case was opened and in two seconds the error message was removed and the light had returned to its normal color. “

    There have been various reports of PS4 consoles crashing during recent demonstrations but hopefully these issues will be sorted out by the time the console reaches retail.

    PS4 runs cooler than the PS3 - PS4 cooler, lighter than PS3, FCC test confirms - Gaming News - Digital Spy

    In a lab test environment, it's certain to overheat at some point...that's kinda the point of the test.

    In real world use, it's unlikely to overheat, unless you're stupid enough to house it in a closed cabinet.

    I always wondered who the idiots were that thought putting consoles in enclosed plastic boxes was a good idea for these displays. Every one I have ever walked by was either shut off or had its fan running on super high speed - and I mean 360's and PS3's. Heck, my Wii gets hot in the cabinet it's in... electronics need to be ventilated, people. It's not rocket science.

    And the ensuing panic begins because a moron put a PS4 in a Plastic Box and left it running for 8+ hours. The result; it overheated. What were the odds...

    I think they did that on purpose to see how the PS4 reacts when it overheats, or if it overheated (obviously it would). At least the "red line of 'death'" isn't actually a red line showing the PS4 malfunctioning, in fact that's pretty cool that it gives a safe warning to make sure we don't actually cause its death.

    Oh phew, so it didn't actually die. This thread is misleading, the PS4 wasn't displaying a sign it fk'd up, it was just saying it was overheating. Who in their right mind puts an electronic for display in a tiny box?

    If you click the link and scroll down it says:

    Update:

    Joshua Eldridge @JoshEldridge016 @yosp is the red line of death on the PS4 true
    Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has responded to our article via Twitter. We’re not entirely sure why he would deem the story “not true” since there is photographic proof. Maybe only devkit models of the PS4 contain the temperature monitoring features. We stand by this story and, hopefully, there will be further updates forthcoming.
