    With today being the launch of the Sony Playstation 4, I figured I'd take some infrared shots of it in action. Using the new FLIR E8 Thermal Camera with MSX®, I've got some great shots to look at. Remember, computers and electronics get hot, but this will show you how the PS4 handles and vents that heat.

    "Top Side" of the PS4, just after unpacking and running firmware update (on for about 5-7 minutes at this point). Note that the top part of the PS4 in this picture has a different emissivity than the lower, so, the temp measurements on the top won't be as accurate.

    The Playstation 4 has been on for about 10-12 minutes at this point as I move around the menus, and start adding my PSN profile.

    This is after 5 minutes of standby, with a controller plugged in for charge.

    Here you can see the vents heating up to around 121º F

    30 minutes later, the top surface of the PS4 is still holding around 114º F degrees at its peak.

    And finally, the bottom side of the Playstation is at 121º F.

    The vents however, are now up to 143º F after 30 minutes of running Killzone, which is totally a reasonable spec!
    UPDATE: A few folks asked for thermal of it lying flat - these two photos are about after 20 minutes of playing Killzone.

    Highest temp read on the vent is around 126º F, a little cooler than when it was vertical, but the play time was a little bit shorter. I'll be taking more photos as the weekend progresses, so keep checking back!
    UPDATE 2:
    The hottest the vents have gotten in its flat position while playing Killzone, appear to be around 138/140º F, so a few degrees cooler, but close to where it was when it was vertical. The top surface still stays at a consistent 110-114º F.

    UPDATE 3: Been playing for over 3 hours now, with the PS4 comfortable in my home theater cabinet in its flat position. The Playstation remains a little under the temperature it was when I was around 30 minutes in, which is around ~133ºF/56ºC.

    I'm assuming you don't have a thermal imaging camera and equipment?
