    There have been many reports of different error codes , failing HDMI ports, sticky bumper buttons and failed updates, just hours after the launch of the PS4, but now a new problem has reared its ugly head in the form of noise pollution.

    A user on Youtube has reported that their PS4 is overheating and causing the fans to sound similar to a hairdryer.

    Here's the video:

    Here are a few things to keep in mind though. The Youtube user only has two videos both of which are a loud PS4 and one uploaded within 2 hours of the first.

    Having said that , there are other reports from different sources all saying the same thing, that after an hour or so of playing , the PS4 sounds like a jumbo jet!

    These could be a faulty batch of consoles, at this time its unconfirmed whether this is a known common issue or not.

    We will keep you all updated when we have more info.

    It has been rumored that it is PS4 consoles purchased from Amazon that are faulty , although i call BS on this.

    how much is the air ticket because I can use a lift. Terrible joke. lets hope this does not cause hardware malfunction or overheating, cause I would feel for those that just got the system.
