    A photo has surfaced showing a demo PS4 console overheating and displaying what has been dubbed “the red line of death.” The picture was taken at a PS4 event in Spain and posted by Elotrolado member Homer J. Simpson in his report of the event. Here are his complete updated comments (translated from Spanish)…

    “In terms of sound, practically none, you can hear the fan if you listened closely but nothing exaggerated. they had ventilated consoles and others put in enclosures completely closed that were running from 9am without stopping (we got there at 18:00 in the evening). they were running fine and were quite warm on the surface but nothing like our curreng generation consoles.

    The only exception to that was one console that was completely enclosed in an acrylic case , it was showing a red light (where there would typically be a blue light) and there was a message on the screen that said the console’s temperature was too high. the Acrylic case was opened and within minutes the error message went away and the light went back to its normal color.

    These consoles were test units, they seemed fully capable in every way.”

    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. We stand by this story and, hopefully, there will be further updates forthcoming.

    It's not overheating it dose this to avoid overheating.

    Usually lit up in blue, the PS4 was on display in an unventilated plastic case when the blue light turned red.

    The forum poster claims that a message showed up on the screen that said the console had a very high temperature.

    From the sounds of it, it didn’t mean that the hardware was fried or anything.

    According to the report, once the console was given some room to breathe, the error message was gone and the light returned to its normal blue color.

    Heating to the point to where it needs to shut off and cool down? Yeah that's overheating.
