@kyleforrester87 Yeah theyve been promising decent hardware and emulation for years and it never came. Its poorly made terribly performing stuff.

Started a new Hyper Light Drifter run tonight, halfway through in 1 hour 26! Really impressed with myself! I wonder if I can finish it tomorrow, in time for God of War on Friday.

I wonder if I'll get it for Switch, too.

Boom, cleared Hyper Light Drifter tonight, that's my third play through and it took me about 3 hours over 2 sessions. Nice little stop gap to see me through to God of War, I will try doing it quicker in the future. One day I will get the no death run trophy... one day..

Does anyone else's PS4 sound like it's going to take off in this wretched heat?

@mookysam It did when I was starting up God of War. It got louder than it usual does, I actually became quite scared for a moment that it would explode, lol.

@mookysam My BluRay drive has been exceptionally loud with KH1.5+2.5. Plus in this heat it sounds louder than normal.

I hate to think what the internal temperature is given fans start at around 60C on this thing

@mookysam I turned supersampling and boost mode off to keep it silent.

Wind's howling.

@mookysam Mine's doing okay, but I've hardly been taxing it.

Last year, when we had the stupidly-hot weather at the tail end of the summer, I'm convinced it had a rivalry going with a floor fan I was running to keep me cool. Couldn't tell which was making the more noise, and it's not exactly a quiet floor fan, either.

I swear, this country... hasn't anybody ever heard of the word "acclimatise" here? One minute it's snowing, the next somebody knocked it all the way up to Gas Mark 9.

@RogerRoger A few weeks ago it was still -20, and now it's 27, 28? I don't think I've ever witnessed an increase like that in such a short amount of time.

@Octane It's definitely one of the more sudden increases, for sure. I can recall a few others that felt this bad, but probably because they're forever embedded in my nightmares. I loathe anything above, ooh... 7°C, maybe 8 if I'm being generous?

@RogerRoger @Octane I was actually wearing a coat and scarf last Friday. I don't cope very well with heat but I suppose it's more the humidity. Having the windows open is a pain because of the pollen. I would get air conditioning for the two or so weeks a year it's needed in this country.

As for the PS4 it's not as loud as my first Xbox 360 got - and that was loud even in the depths of winter. It did well though. After nearly five years it got to the point where I thought it would escape the dreaded RROD. And then it promptly got the RROD.

Hopefully the PS5 will have better cooling!

I just found out there's something called ASMR on youtube. I'm not even sure what I've been watching for the past hour.

@Jaz007 Yeah, the first time I heard about it I was perplexed as well. So strange.

@Jaz007 I like to watch them occasionally before bed. I get sensory overload and this helps chill me out. However, it is weird.

My Pro was 'roaring' whilst playing God of War yesterday. It may have sounded at lot louder than I remembered as I have been playing a lot on the Xbox X which is a LOT quieter anyway.

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

@mookysam Fortunately, no matter how loud any console may get, I've never had one overheat and crash. With my old base-model PS4, I did decide to stop playing a little earlier than I'd have liked, just as a precaution on a handful of occasions when the weather was warm and the fan was loud. It's a testament to their design that they can keep themselves going in such conditions.

@BAMozzy I have been wondering about the God of War factor. It's a game designed to push the console to the limits and it goes and launches on a ridiculously hot day; I'm guessing more than a few warranties will be checked over the weekend.

Don't most consoles with recommend external temperatures for use? I know Switch did, because battery, dont use it in warm weather.

I imagine PS4 would need to given it's penchant for acting like a jet. Then again mine isn't an OG PS4. It's a 1TB model so I believe the internals are very slightly refined.
