RedPS4

An image captured at a PlayStation 4 event in Spain reportedly shows what happens when the PlayStation 4 overheats, echoing the infamous Red-Ring-of-Death that plagued early Xbox 360s.

According to a Spanish forum user, in a post translated by VideoGameScene, one of the PS4 units overheated, displaying a red LED in place of the blue. ps4-rlodAt least it’s not a yellow light of death, right?

“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.

Does this mean we’ll be seeing more of the Red Line of Death on PlayStation 4’s in the future, seeing as how there’s some apparently powerful hardware tucked in to a pretty small box? Well, no. It just means that there are some built-in safeguards to prevent this sort of thing from happening.

And of course, a tiny console sealed up a glass case, running for a whole day is bound to overheat. I’d hope that everybody has learned from past, very expensive mistakes – and I’d bet that the PS4 and Xbox one are going to be less likely to die in a fiery blaze.

[Update]

For it’s part, Sony says this is nonsense. In a reply to user, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida said it’s a load of codswallop. [Thanks to Rikus for the info]

          Can’t really be “of Death” if it didn’t really die and went back to normal within seconds.

          Probably shouldn’t have the system sealed up without much ventilation.

            I think the more shocking detail is that it functioned all day long in this environment, and the overheating happened later in the day. Only slightly less impressive is your point.

    What a stupid thing to do, any equipment that uses air cooling cant be sealed?? I mean thats electronics 101. Nice to knwo theres safe guards though. Still not enough to make me actually get any of the next gen consoles. Im really not impressed with whats been offered, no reason to move away from the master race.

        In our rapidly change world, obsolete, discarded electronic items are causing great harm to the environment. In response to this threat, we at MS are proud to introduce our newest innovation in green home electronics, included in the pioneering Xbox One home entertainment console.

        Every Xbox One will come fitted with our patented Door Stop Mode (DSM). In the event of a critical failure, the Xbox One will automatically enable the DSM. This will allow you to find a constructive use for your Xbox One AND save the environment.
