    PS4 has more vents than meets the eye.

    Maybe I'm just slow to the party but I was messing around with sketchfab's 3d viewer of the PS4 and noticed that theres a lot more vents than I realized at first. On both sides in the grooves theres a row of intake vents.

    heres the link to sketchfab if you haven't already checked it out.

    I'm happy to see that the PS4 will live up to Cerny's words that the PS4 wont overheat having all those vents plus its low power consumption.

    Did you guys already know this?
    I just noticed it today, and thought I'd share.

    Looks good. Sets my mind more at ease about heat issues. I hope Sony puts a good quality BR drive in it.

    Supposedly the BluRay Drive will be 3 times faster than the current PS3 drive.

    Actually I meant reliability wise. But yeah it will be nice to have a much faster BR drive.

    I hope sony adds a proper network card in. I only get 20mbps (with the networking test, not with the actual download) with a wired connection on my ps3. I pay for 150mbps

    The bandwidth tester on the PS3 never was very reliable, it often said I had 2Mbit when I had 16-17Mbit maximum download speed. But when downloading stuff from the store it always maxed it out.

    Well hopefully this and the better engineering behind the PS4 give us a YLOD free generation.

    I actually got about 80-90 mbps download on the test, and I have 100mbit/sec. I don't think it's the network card.

    It's a BDXL drive, supports quad layer 100gb, but not the next BD standard for UHD.

    i also hope for better networking I'm using wireless and the abysmal speeds of the included wireless g are horrid. I know they are going to have n wireless built in to ps4 but I'm really hoping they include the 5ghz band. On any of my devices the best I can get is ~40mbs on 2.4ghz n wireless while I can get the full 65mbs on 5ghz.
