    Sonyís SVP Gives New Info on the PS4′s Noise Level, Power Consumption, Media Performance and More

    Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia Senior Vice president and Director of Business Unit 1 Masayasu Ito isnít as well known as Shuhei Yoshida between PlayStation fans, but given his technical role heís the best person to ask about some of the most technical aspects of the upcoming PS4. Today he gaver some extremely interesting information about the console as part of an interview on the Japanese tech site AV Watch.
    Hereís a summary of the most relevant points:

    • While being always online is not necessary, a network connection is important to fully enjoy the features of the PS4.
    • The PS4 will initially act as a stand-alone web server for the PlayStation App. In the future thereís the possibility of this to be expanded through the cloud, with the PS4 and PlayStation App interacting through the cloud, allowing cooperative play between multiple players.
    • The secondary chip for ultra-low power operation will mostly activate at night from 1 to 4 AM and download any required update automatically. It will also activate when software is purchased through external means like the PlayStation App.
    • Power consumption will vary greatly depending on the performance of the game played.
    • The noise level of the console during operation is generally much lower than it was on the PS3.
    • The PS4′s cooling fan has a low noise level and stepless speed control (meaning that it will increase its speed to match heat smoothly and not in sudden steps like the one on the PS3).
    • Since the Blu-Ray player is 6x instead of 2x in speed (like the one on the PS3 was) the initial spinning noise is actually louder, but that will be countered by caching data on the hard disk drive.
    • The Audio/Video performance (for movies and music) of the PS4 will target PS3 levels at launch, but will be improved through updates, for instance with the addition of 4K, as Sony is also an Audio/Video company.
    • The theme of the PS4 is ďPersonalizationĒ, meaning that it will offer an experience tailored to each individual.

    There you have it: looks like quite a lot of thought has gone into making the PS4 easier on your ears (the stepless fan controll is a big improvement there) and on your power consumption. Weíll have to see how this will actually work in real life, but the data provided by Ito-san is definitely interesting.

    I really like the fact that the fan control isn't stepped. My guess is that will be the first feature to go when they start making lower-cost models. I also don't mind loud installs if it means the disc is being read at 6X. That's a LOT of bandwidth.

    Nice, has a variable speed fan in it! I wonder if they are talking about it being quieter than current gen PS3 systems or if they were referring to the launch PS3?

    This was some good information. I hope we are going to hear more details of features in the future. The only left for Sony to do is reveal the official specs of the system. And so no one will be confused, Sony has released the base specs of the architecture of the system and how it functions but we do not know the full feature specs such as the power/speed the of the CPU.

    Sounds like Sony is pulling all the strings coming into this next gen.

    yea, you can tell when Kaz came into the picture. They really cleaned house and got rid of a lot of mumbo jumbo throughout the Sony departments. I'm also sure that they fired / laid off a bunch of people in the playstation department as well because so far everything they are doing now is the complete opposite than what they did with the PS3. you can tell it's different people, new people put in charge, other people put out of their misery. One thing I noticed is that Kazuo Hirari doesn't screw around.

    Right now Sony has a lot of great people doing a lot of great things! I am just glad that they had the balls to admit to the concerns developers had with the PS3 and step back up to the plate to crack the ball out of the park! This coming generation of gaming is going to be amazing!

    The PS3 was pretty quiet at it is. This thing is set to be non-exsisten noise wise (outside of initial disk spin-up it appears)

    Good job
