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

750°
27w 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...
 

Video: The Last of Us Dev Series Episode 3: Death and Choices

48w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli shared a video today from The Last of Us development series Episode 3 dubbed Death and Choices below.

To quote: We took a look at the Infected in our first video in The Last of Us Development series. We then explored the game world and nature's reclamation of civilization as we know it in our second video, Wasteland Beautiful.

Our third video, Death and Choices, investigates what it means to be a survivor in the world of The Last of Us and how Joel and Ellie cope with the harsh realities of post-pandemic society. Watch it now:

Survival is moment to moment in the world of The Last of Us. There are stark consequences to every decision that's made and if Joel and Ellie want to survive they'll need to scavenge the environment for every possible advantage. Learning to craft more potent weapons from makeshift materials or take defensive precautions using found objects will be critical to their continued survival.

Up next, our penultimate video in the series will spotlight the combat mechanics and the intimate nature of conflict in The Last of Us.

The in-depth documentary we have been creating grew so large that we are currently seeking a unique way to distribute it. We'll have details about how you can get the feature-length...

90w ago - THQ UK Interactive Marketing Manager Mike Richardson has shared a video today proclaiming that The Creatures of Darksiders II officially welcome death on the PS3 entertainment system this August.

To quote: We've just released the first all-gameplay trailer for Darksiders II, which sees the most feared of the horseman of the apocalypse, Death, going up against some of the creatures from the game.

The Ancient. The Corrupted. The Holy. The Damned... Death comes for all.

The trailer shows off several key characters from the game, but we wanted to provide additional context as the game marches towards its August 14th release date.

Death

Like his fellow Horsemen, Death is of a race known as Nephilim - among the most powerful beings in the Universe. When mankind received the prize of Eden, Absalom - leader of the Nephilim - led his armies against Heaven and Hell in an attempt to steal it back. For this crime, the Charred Council condemned the Nephilim to destruction.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were granted a reprieve from this fate on the condition they aid the Council's victory over their kin. The Horsemen accepted, but it was Death who bore the greatest burden of guilt...

To quote: RSODfix Lv2diag tool

Last week someone found the *Proof of Concept* (POC) PUP/app in the wiki, awesome-- people are looking in the wiki! But the dev who put it there, did so as a POC and hadn't intended for it to be released yet because it required you to be able to install a pkg and run apps... something you couldn't do necessarily if you were RSOD. Now, we present you with the FULL and COMPLETE solution!

Now, Fixing the Red Screen Of Death (RSOD) could not be any easier with this new tool! There have been methods in the past that accomplished the same goal, but certainly the difficulty of use hindered many from successfully recovering their beloved console. As a further commitment to you never needing a dongle again, we bring you this release to work in conjunction with our second...
 

PS3 RSOD - Red Screen of Death Fix is Now Available

116w ago - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developers RobS and An0nym0us have made available a PS3 RSOD (Red Screen of Death) fix for those experiencing the issue on Sony's current-gen entertainment system and gaming console.

Download: PS3 RSOD - Red Screen of Death Fix (NORSOD NOTHEROS Patched PUP) / 355-NOTHEROS-RSOD.rar (Mirror) / PS3 RSOD - Red Screen of Death Fix (GAMEOS RSOD FIX)

Below are further details via PS3 Dev Wiki: RSOD Fix

The RSOD Fix - Observations about RSOD:

Seems to appear mostly on consoles with Samsung NORS (CECHLxx-CECH20xx) May be caused by an error being thrown while writing to NOR (this is theory) Mostly caused by a corrupt area of flash called VTRM

The original RSOD "fix" was actually a CFW patch to bypass the RSOD. basic_plugins.sprx was modified to ignore the error condition to allow the console to boot. While this worked, certain things like trophies still didn't work correctly.

The actual RSOD fix occurs by the VTRM area on flash being rewritten. The ability to do this is already built into the firmware, it just needs to be called.
