Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

I have a launch PS4. No heat or spinning noise issues here.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

My too is a launch release model and thankfully no issues....though I thought flickering was due to it, was the Lamp.

I haven't felt Hot but I get typical spinning sound where disc is loading but it's not loud. I do occasional unplug everything and take a can of Air and blow out the vents trying to get dust out...pretty much how you need to clean inside a PC Tower from time-to-time. I actually need to take mine apart and do a through inspection and do a deep clean especially the fan.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Mine is just a bit post-launch, but with a newer/bigger hard-drive, zero issues. Though I haven't played an actual disc in it in a long time - I've gone all digital for the last year.

It's an NBA 2k thing. I don't know what it is about that game, but sometimes (mainly in My Career mode) it will turn the PS4 into a jet engine and it does get pretty hot. I'm not sure why it happens because it seems to happen even just in menus sometimes which you wouldn't think would be something that would not be stressing the machine, but it certainly is.
It does happen with other games as well, but 2k is the one that I noticed it the most.

Yes, I have this happen in 2K as well, and I have a launch PS4. It doesn't help that because of the stupid VC, it is constantly reading and writing data to their servers.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

My PS4 is about a year after launch, whenever they replaced the glossy part with all matte, but I recall the fan getting pretty loud with God of War. I don't think it ever got too hot though.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Was browsing Amazon today, and saw Spider Man for $39.99 for either disc or digital. Waffling about it, as Iím not sure if I need a new game right now.
