Playstation 4 runs much cooler temperature than the PS3

Good news! The Playstation 4 has passed the FCC (US Federal Communications Commision) standards, this means that the system runs much cooler, thus, will prevent accidents, like burning your house. This is also means that you won’t be getting the YLOD (yellow light of death) unlike the PS3. The PS3 is known to overheat, especially the FAT version of the PS3. Playing your PS3 especially on hotter days will increase the risk of overheating. Thankfully, Playstation 4 won’t be having these issues. According to FCC, Sony’s new console has an operating temperature at a range of 40 degrees Fahrenheit to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s way cooler than the PS3 which averages between 113 to 131 degrees Fahrenheit. Now with that, the PS4 runs cooler.

The Playstation 3’s Yellow Light of Death although it’s not that common compared to the Xbox 360’s ring of death, can be troublesome if you don’t take care of your PS3 well. There’s more ring of death from Xbox 360 than PS3. More or less  1/10 people I know that they experienced the YLOD. However, this is not an excuse for not taking good care of your PS3. Having the Playstation 4 with its lower temperature operating system is indeed very useful and may perhaps have a longer mechanical lifespan. This is really good news, especially for those who are planning to buy a Playstation 4 this holiday season. Sony really learned their lesson from their past mistakes and it’s very encouraging and re-assuring that they want to give the best console to their communications. They really have improved in those aspects, and is highly recognized. Are you excited for the Playstation 4? I know I am.
