Yup, my thoughts too.

 

That's a lot of vents, plenty of places for the hot air to escape.

Try not to put the vent side against a flat surface or cover the console with a tea towel ;)

And plenty of places for dust to accumulate .
Atleast thats what i was thinking when i saw that.
i will wait for the people that pre-ordered the ps4.

not that i think that te ps3 was *****ty and the ps4 i have buyed the ps3 on launch .
so i still have the one that plays ps2 games i had to fix it by reballing it.

I saw a report that claimed the ps4 runs at a cool 35 degrees C. An interesting fact considering the ps3 operated at 40-55 degrees C and topped out at 60. Thats when you start having serious issues with freezing or yellow lighting. obiously 35 is considerably lower, and if this report is true I cant see there being too many over heating issues. I think any issues at all will be software related.

I did some interweb searches and came up with the following...

PS3 Cell CPU - 180+/- watts
360 CPU - 150+/- watts
i7 - 105 watts
APU - 65 watts
Jaguar - 15 watts

That and there's no separate GPU to be cooled this time. I don't think overheating will be a problem.

Could be a possibility, hopefully it won't be. I'll be waiting for the guinea pigs to test the PS4 on launch and several months after to see if there is anything wrong and to see if I am satisfied it is a stable console.

They are probably putting the PS4 through its paces now to make sure there is not over heating.

you will find the system getting hot as people don't like hearing fans but this will be with in normal range that will not affect the console. At the end of the day you can't really blame sony for you'r console packing up if you have had it over a year and it's been played a lot in that time. this is down to dust build up with in the console it's self. one tip you can do is use nylon tights as a dust filter tape is the best thing to use but do make ps3 look funny. But this will help stop any dust build up with in the console. I do not bother as i open up my ps3 every 3-6 months i use play tv for my tv freeview.
