    Red Line of (Death?) - Yoshida-sama says "Not True"

    DUN DUN DUN! *queue doom and gloom orchestra muic here*

    The PS4 has had a few reported cases of the Red Line of Death at a show recently. Pictured above.

    http://videogamescene.com/ps4-overhe...line-of-death/

    UPDATE
    Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has responded to our article via Twitter.
    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. Hopefully there will be further updates on this forthcoming.
    added as an update to linked article.

    Nice that it shuts itself down when it gets too hot! Hopefully this gen we won't end up with a bunch of dead consoles all over the place!

    Yup. Within seconds of opening the case, the PS4 returned to normal operation.

    Calling it the Red Line of Death is a bit of a stretch, it's not dead if the thing still works after it cools. Personally I think its an awesome feature, I use my console a lot and would like to know that I can't unknowingly kill it.

    That's pretty good. Thankfully I doubt many of us will be keeping our PS4's in a plastic case

    I hope you are ready to find a way to open that case up easily then :P

    Mine will just be sat on my desk so airflow shouldn't be a problem

    Red line of protective shut down because some dumb ass thought it was a good idea to put me in a tiny box w/ no air flow

    Drill some holes in the top of the box people and allow the hot air to flow out the top instead of constantly recirculating and being heated more and more.

    They really need to make some air holes/vents on that transparent box, or they'll have to open it to let in air very often. Good to hear that the PS4 shuts itself down when it gets too hot, hopefully that will keep it alive a lot longer.

    That was a Tweet with as always too little information. The tweet is on the referenced page.

    That said, the person Tweeted to Shuhei asking if the Red line of death on the PS4 is True. To which Shuhei responded - not true.

    I take this to mean it's not a Read line of death. I do not take it to mean that it's not an indicator that it's gone into a powerdown/low power state while the temp is high, which is not a Red line of death and is what is actually described.

    In other words, I don't see this as even indicated was faked, but that it's not what it's being dubbed.

    FAKE! Photoshopped by You Know Who.

    Lefein, what goes? You are getting suckered by every one of these, almost like The Sith has been suckered several times this month. Analyze what you are considering "sources".

    I don't see where anyone from Sony suggested the images were photoshop. There was a direct question to Shuhei asking "is the red line of death on the PS4 true" to which Shuhei responded "not true"

    No comments from any Sony said that what was described was not true. What was described was NOT a red line of death, period. And that's all Shuhei or anyone from Sony has stated.

    For all I know it may be photoshopped and the whole story may be bogus, but at this point there's no evidence of this, and looking at the case it was placed in, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Cool. Now we can make the thread an "Officially Debunked" thread. Instead of blaming me, why not create a thread about it next time, so that way we keep people informed?

    FYI, the article was also updated by the author, so, all is well and good mate.

    I don't think it is fake I think it isn't quite a line of death though. It seems as though it is more of a "overheating warning" and I think that is why Shuhei debunked it as a "line of death".

    Could be fake though but Sony haven't completely debunked the fact that it could be a warning sign.

    The only way to prove the truth to this would be to show clear HD video footage of it happening.
