[IGN] Sony Confirms PlayStation 4 Does Not Have a Power Brick - Page 9

post #81 of 84
I've had a PS1 that never failed, a PS2 that lasted six years until I traded (never failed), I've purchased 2 PS3 and none of them ever failed.

I HAVE had 2 Xboxes fail, and FOUR Xbox 360's fail. I'd like to think interal PSU's aren't a huge issue.

I'm going to laugh when this "feature" turns out to be the RROD of the PS4. doh.gif

Funny you should mention the Red Ring of Death, seeing as that was the name of the XBOX360's error due to inefficient cooling and well... it did have an external power supply so obviously the problem wasn't because of the non-existent `internal` power supply failing or creating too much heat inside the unit.

That so called "feature" as you put it, didn't really help nor hurt the XBOX360.

You may also like to know that last generations consoles were absolute power hogs and this generations will be using a good chunk less power, therefore creating even less heat, making it even less of a problem.

And personally, I've never had a consoles power supply or delivery system fail on me. I can still power up any of my consoles ( and I have them all since the first Atari, I take no sides usually except with the XBOX1's policies being a bit stupid and obviously not fit for me since I travel a lot and well, my consoles come with me to many places where even my cellphone doesn't get a signal, so no pinging every 24 hours via that hotspot ) and play any games on them just fine. I really see bad power supplies as a non-issue in the grand scheme of things when it comes to consoles. So regardless of whether it's internal or external, it's all preference really. Internal is nice for convenience, external is nice for making thinner consoles that can more easily fit behind my TV ( so long as the power brick is a loaf of bread like the 360's, but more like the PS2's laptop sized brick ).
