As we’ve come to expect, Shuhei Yoshida was very busy this, answering lots of people’s questions.

"That blue light on the PS4 “changes colors.” We’ll have to wait and see how many colors it can change to."

Hope it has as many as my Razer Naga Epic mouse. Allthough the blue LED goes with the leds in my pc.

One of those quotes will hush the people who have been claiming the PS4 is prone to overheating. Like it was ever an issue......you put anything in a glass/plastic case with no ventilation, its going to get hot (you don't say!). But i guess people need something negative about the PS4 to cling to.

*Looking at you Mr x media and your "insider"* I read something on that idiots blog that the PS4 needs special cooling in the summer and that it shuts down every 30 seconds due to overheating, LOL!

Electronics tend to overheat in small spaces im shocked by that news actually...
Kayant  +   625d ago
inb4 well what else is he supposed to say....

Both consoles will be fine as long as they are kept in a well ventilated place. Only stupid people will have overheating issues. Both seem to be well designed to prevent overheating based on what we have been told and seen so far.

That rumor was made up by MisterX. It never had any substance.

The Ps4 and X1 have the same heating issues...
Put them in a little box and they may overheat

That MisterX guys is an I..ot. He seriously cited an "insider" saying the "dgpu" thing is real, and MS can scale the GPU to 3TF. Just days ago or something. He's is seriously deluded. But he doesn't give up. That's probably a symptom.
EXVirtual  +   625d ago
Well, MisterXmedia is a conspiracy theorist as well as an Xbox fanboy.
It's very simple. If you set the PS4 in a place with no breathing space, it's not gonna hold up. Same goes for the XBP.
Speaking of him check out his new blog post:
BS alert!
He loves spreading crap.

Oh my god... I clicked that link. Some Xbox fanboys are so sad and desperate. The amount of BS was unreal.
dodo101  +   625d ago
Not only that they are downplaying ps4.
The "insider" also claims that the xboxone is 2.6TF! LMAO!
Lukas_Japonicus  +   625d ago

The numbers always change, not long ago they were saying that the X1 is on par with a GTX titan LOL.
Stuart81  +   625d ago
I never listen to a thing MisterXMedia says, and I'm getting an x1 at launch. The PS4 is very impressive and I will be adding one to my console collection sometime in 2014
KNWS  +   625d ago
It doesn't actually, he's hardly going to tell you the truth, if the PS4 is prone to overheating. You'll have to find that out for yourself.

Lot of insiders have claimed the PS4 is prone to overheating, so again, only when the console is out will people find out.

I'm just curious, as to why there has been no videos of the Sony UI yet been used by a user?

I did a little Googling the other day and in 2011 MisterXMedia's "insider" was saying that the Wii U would have a built-in projector. Dude is a farce.

What insiders, point me to the source material?

Stop talking out of your ass and stop reading the crap that comes outta Mr xmoron's mouth.

I have seen plenty vids of Sony's Ul, shouldn't you be asking that of the x1.

OT: Yoshida-San is a legend, a lot of execs can learn alot from this guy.

I strongly urge you to refrain from visiting the misterxmedia site. I visited there a few days ago and left with a severe case of herpes.

O.T. This overheating issue should never have been an issue in the first place. I honestly think that everyone who is making it an issue knows very well that it's a non issue but hey, they need some sort of ammo against the ps4 right?
Kane22  +   625d ago
omg i couldn't even stay on that site anymore. that whole site was nothing but BS crap against Sony and the PS4. and i cant get over how people believe his crap lol
fenome  +   625d ago

Well, he's not a liar, so yes we do actually tend to believe him. See how that works?

He doesn't intentionally try to twist the truth or keep us in the dark about anything.
TheXgamerLive  +   625d ago
Actually the ps4 has a much much greater chance at over heating.
Here's why.
It was designed for cooling 4 gigs of gddr5 and not 8, fhen wben upped last minute , well that increased heating by almost 100%.

I thinks its an issue tbey will soon fix though.
fenome  +   625d ago
Oh, cool, thanks @XGamer for the "inside" info. You're VERY well informed, what would we do without your firsthand knowledge on the console /s

If you were stuck in something like this while blowing your hot air I bet you would overheat too

So does PS4 have voice commands without the PS camera? It looks like it too me, but I could be reading into it too much. Anyone?

So he is saying universal remotes will work with the ps4 because there is no ir sensor or they will not because of that a little unclear could be read both ways?
lashes2ashes  +   625d ago
Almost all remotes use ir. So no they will not work. Now a blue tooth remote is a possibility.
_FantasmA_  +   625d ago
I really hope that they do support PS3. I mean I hope that some of their upcoming first party studios come to both PS3 and PS4. But I think that this support will come from third party like COD and all of EAs recycled games. Its better than nothing but I just hope Sony brings their big games to both PlayStations and the Vita. I doubt it though because games like The Order being PS4 only and recent news that all their studios on working on PS4 games makes me doubt that Sony will support PS3.

Sure the support will dwindle during the coming years, but have a look at what we had this year and next year...Sony is supporting its consoles far more than any other vendor!!! and for longer time!!!

DevilishSix  +   625d ago
FantasmA don't worry about Sonys' support for PS3, they have already had as many first party PS3 exclusives this year then 360 has had this year and last combined. TLOU, Puppeteer, GOW Ascension, Beyound Two Souls, a new Rachet and Clank upcoming as well as GT. All 360 has had is a bad and short Gears game and an upcoming reskin of Fable.

I think proof is in the pudding and PS3 has had alot of jello this year alone.

_FantasmA_  +   625d ago
Yes I know 2013 was a great year, but we've known about Last of Us, GOW, and Beyond for a few years at least. I don't recall any of their first party studios announcing anything for PS3 recently, other than GT6 which is out in less than a month.

I'm not being negative, so you guys can stop downvoting me. The same goes for the Vita, after Borderlands 2, there hasn't been any other big game announced for it. I know my PS4 will be getting some love, but I still would like to see the PS3 and Vita get supported for those other gamers who are waiting on the PS4.

You see? I'm an nice guy. I'm not even asking for games for my PS3. I'm looking out for your guys that aren't making the jump to the next gen yet. I really hope you guys get some lovin.

Any electronic device with internal fans and breather ports needs some sort of air circulation and not closed in airtight places, closing any device like a pc tower or a console in places were not much air circulates will no doubt cause the device to overheat.

"No Limit Studios, what's up?"

Whodis is, Whodis is?

Ain't no limit to the PS4 capability baby...make'em say UGH!!! Na nana NAAAAA
"As we've come to expect, Shuhei Yoshida was very busy this, answering lots of people’s questions. "

Except any questions to do with why they won't support MP3's/Audio CD's/DLNA and why they're trying to force the Music Unlimited service on their customers.
DCfan  +   625d ago
He's the duuuuuuuude man.
SniperControl  +   625d ago
No one is holding your arm behind your back and forcing you to get Music Unlimited, Sony have said they will look to add MP3 and DNLA support in future updates.

End of the day, the PS4 is a gaming machine, gamers wanted a gaming machine, Sony gave the gamers a gaming machine.
On the contrary, when Sony knows there are many people that will want to listen to their own music collection and custom soundtracks during gameplay, but choose to eliminate that option and offer a subscription based service instead, I don't know what else you'd call that but holding someone's arm behind their back since there are no other options.

I'm not going to pay for music that I already own and paid for once.

As for:

"Sony have said they will look to add MP3 and DNLA support in future updates."

That's a complete lie. Yoshida said "Thanks for the feedback to the lack of MP3 and DLNA support at the launch of PS4. I'll share with the PS4 Dev team for future consideration".

....which means absolutely nothing. There's no guarantee those features will ever come to the system.

Perhaps if you took off your "Sony apologist" glasses and read it again you would understand there is no guarantee or promise of this ever happening.


Nice try "cool guy", but I've never even owned a piece of M$ hardware, EVER. But now I'm a troll because I have a problem with their lack of MP3 support?

OK, makes perfect sense, genius.

If you would do some research sony said that after the first patch a 2nd patch will come very soon that will add MP3 and DLNA and suspend/resume i guess u dont read much?
Bud1914  +   625d ago
Sony has said nothing of the sort. That rumor was started by a blogger. Only thing Sony rep (Yoshida?)has said is he has heard your concerns and will pass it on.
SoulSercher620  +   625d ago
What do you live under a rock? Sony already said it's going to be in the next patch.

Post a direct link with a Sony rep on the record saying that mp3 and DLNA will be in the next patch. Have his name and position included. I'm going to stop this parade of false PR you liars have been spreading since E3. Saying Sony doesnt has DRM. They damn near invented it. http://m.officialplaystatio...

This PS4 wasn't in a case as you can see the guy touch the top of it at :30. There are simply too many recorded instances of the PS4 overheating and malfunctioning to take Sony at their word. http://www.ps3news.com/play...
DevilishSix  +   625d ago
No issue here, if you read further down the article was updated that the PS4 was put in a box, lol, any console is going to overheat if the hot air can't be cleared out. What gamers should really be worried about is the X1 and Microsofts reputation for crappy hardware, cough AKA billion dollar warranty cough 360.

When asked how long the PS4 can be on before it overheats or there’s framerate drops, Shuhei said, “No limit, unless you put it in a small shielded compartment.”

damn...guess that means I have to limit my play time...
