PlayStation 4 Red Line of Death (PS4 RLOD) Overheating, Sony Responds


Sponsored Links
45w ago - We've all heard of the dreaded PS3 YLOD (Yellow Light of Death) syndrome, but today a photo surfaced showing a demo PS4 console overheating and displaying what has been dubbed the Red Line of Death (PS4 RLOD) followed by Sony responding.

To quote: The picture was taken at a PS4 event in Spain and posted by Elotrolado member Homer J. Simpson in his report (via elotrolado.net/hilo_playstation-4_1864860_s36130#p1733944694) of the event. Here are his complete updated comments (roughly translated from Spanish):

“In terms of sound, practically none, you can hear the fan if you listened closely but nothing exaggerated. they had ventilated consoles and others put in enclosures completely closed that were running from 9am without stopping (we got there at 18:00 in the evening). they were running fine and were quite warm on the surface but nothing like our current generation consoles.

The only exception to that was one console that was completely enclosed in an acrylic case, it was showing a red light (where there would typically be a blue light) and there was a message on the screen that said the console’s temperature was too high. the Acrylic case was opened and within minutes the error message went away and the light went back to its normal color.

These consoles were test units, they seemed fully capable in every way.”

Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has responded via Twitter, as follows:

  • Joshua Eldridge (JoshEldridge016): yosp is the red line of death on the PS4 true
  • Shuhei Yoshida (yosp): JoshEldridge016 not true

We’re not entirely sure why he would deem the story “not true” since there is photographic proof. Maybe only devkit models of the PS4 contain the temperature monitoring features. We stand by this story and, hopefully, there will be further updates forthcoming.

Finally, below are some PS4 RLOD (Red Line of Death) videos via YouTube:

Guys for crying out loud... 0.4% means 4 per thousand... 4units out of a thousand.

As 4% is 4 out of a hundred. It's a division of 1 unit... Know what that is? take a hundred items (called a). Each one of those is 1% of the total(a). Take that 1 item(b) and redivide it to another 10 parts... each one of these(c) 10 parts is 10% of (b) and 0.10 of (a)

Damn won't let me edit... 0.10 is the same as 0.1 and 0.01 is 1 out of ten thousand.

No, they already stated 0.4%, which means the math was already done. Percentages are relative numbers, and in this case the number of launch units is much larger than 1 (which your percentages are based off of). You can't just arbitrarily change numbers in real math.

you're smoking heavy doses of weed then.
How did you know?

If 1.0 is 100%, then .40 is 40%, which means .04 is 4%. What school did you go to? Thats simple math all day k-6.

Not my fault $ony is full of it.
