    Thanks Gamesradar for freaking everyone out about heat issues. Seriously people, there will never be a gaming console (or any device with a CPU) that does not get hot. That is how it works. It is a good thing that the heat is going out of the system, and not staying inside frying anything. The 360 had issues because of poor solder and cheap hardware. The entire backside of the PS4 appears to be nothing but vents, I doubt there will be an issue.

    I understand what you're saying, however, the solder problems in the 360 were brought on by excessive heat. These consoles are several hundred dollars and I can't just go buy a new one on a whim simply because my old one crapped out. I've cracked my 360 open several times to change thermal paste and to rig things up not to fail again. Considering how many problems there were in the 360/PS3 era in terms of heat problems, I feel like it's a good thing to be cautious about this. Good on GR for making sure to check out the heat issue!

    Ya I understand what you are saying, and I'm the same way on waiting for a console. I wait because there will inevitably be patches and better games. I just think people are overreacting to something that is not an issue as of yet. Waiting to see if it becomes an issue is not an overreaction. The people overreacting are the people commenting how we should wait until there are consoles that are not hot or something similarly ignorant.

    Oh, no, writing off a console before it has heat problems is silly. But I still think it's smart on GR's part to acknowledge that there is a ton of heat pouring out of the PS4, just so people know. I don't think it's going to make or break someone's purchasing of the console if it has yet to show problems, but it justifies those of us who didn't run out for a day one purchase. I'm leaning toward an X1 but I'm still going to wait until GR reviews it too and to see what the internet community says in general about the hardware in both consoles before I make a decision.

    Cool choices? There really isn't a choice besides become a monster or die.

    "the PS4 has officially ushered us into the era of next-gen" I'm sorry. I really REALLY hate having to be a PC fanboy, but I'm laughing at this quote right now. I don't need to pay a penny or lift my forefinger from my D key; the "next gen" is here already.

    Well considering how much consoles hold pc back, because lets face it, games today are made with consoles in mind first, this means our pcs will finally get to stretch their legs a little bit more.
  • SuperSATA - November 14, 2013 6 p.m.

    Well, again, I really hate having to be a PC fanboy, and personally, I'm only lukewarm to the idea that consoles hold PC back. I think instead that there is a deliberate neglect from developers about graphics, because console gamers typically aren't as graphics picky as us. Although I suppose that does count as consoles holding the PC "back." Anyway, yes, you are right; the PS4 and Xbone are going to be good for the PC, since the platform, so I hear, is more closely related to Windows. More and more games can be coded on a platform that works both ways. Hopefully we start to see some real amazing graphics on these "next gen" games. But either way, as long as the game is good, I won't care about graphics. Priorities.

    You must be real fun at parties. You know what consoles play? Games. Who know what PC's can play? Games. You know what PC's have that consoles don't? People who come out of their way to gloat about how awesome their system can render graphics. Know how many times someones gotten laid for that? None. We all play games here, thats the point. We just don't need people telling us how superior their platform is while they're the ones getting sloppy seconds in games. Its unbecoming of you.
  • SuperSATA - November 15, 2013 12:34 p.m.

    Dude, I know. I second that statement, concur with that statement, and agree in every other form with that statement. Hence "Well, again, I really hate having to be a PC fanboy." I am in full support of the personal opinion master race. Not the PC one. In my last posts, I was merely stating that the new consoles will be good for PC and console gaming since the platforms are closer and won't bottleneck the potential of really high-end PCs. I also made the point of saying (as it pertained to the article) that us PC gamers need not a PS4 to induct them into the "next gen". And for the record, I've started quite a few conversations talking about my PC. And yes, with normal people.

    I'm a bit tempted by PS4, although no way at launch. The statement "the graphics are quite noticeable" hardly screams spend £400 to play a current gen game that looks a little bit better and the heat issue is a very big concern for me. Both Sony & Micrsoft released dodgy hardware last time round, so want to see if they have learnt from their previous mistakes. In fact if it wasn't for the fact that the only way to play 3rd party software going forward will be on PS4 or XB1 I would be more than happy with the Wii U.

    "Second Son bundle leaked for Feb." Well, guess I'll hold out till Feb then.

    Ah, console heat issues... We meet again.
  • udUbdaWgz - November 14, 2013 8:38 a.m.

    you know, i'm a guy who grew up with mouse and key. we loved the fact that we had video games. a flight simulator controller was "next-gen." descent and my music playing in the background was perfect. now, we've got redundant games with overpriced hardware. multiplayer junkies and corporate idiocy. ps4 vs xone? neither deserve our dime.

    Seems really attractive, however the heat-issue worries me a bit. It worries me enough to make me wait for further news on the matter to see whether it's a problem or not. Already I'm not that comfortable with the Xbox 360-Slim getting heated. What can I say? I'm from Sweden. I like it cold.

    Why is there no mention of the new PSN dashboard look? The PSN was awful on PS3, especially with no party chat feature so what's the deal?
  • Oujisama - November 13, 2013 9:18 p.m.

    Really? Heat issues again? Can we just develop new technology when we're sure it's stable?
