PlayStation 5: Sony exec says a 'great deal of effort' has gone into making PS5 less noisy than PS4


Gamers have already started saving as they prepare to splash the cash on a PlayStation 5.

Sony’s new console was unveiled this week and it’s bound to be a hit.

Equipped with a speedy SSD to make loading exponentially faster, the PS5 will herald a brand new era when it comes to gaming technology.

Indeed, the controller’s haptic feedback tech will allow players to physically feel things like “slow grittiness of driving a car through mud,” Sony say.

And the console, which comes with a sleek design, will address an issue that frustrated PlayStation 4 users.

Ever experience loud noise while playing your PS4? You’re not alone.

The console’s cooling system very often struggled with modern games, leading to the console sounding like it was about to take flight.


However, Sony have put a “great deal of effort” into making the PS5 less noisy than its predecessor. That’s according to the company’s Head of Europe Business, Simon Rutter, who address the matter in an interview with The Guardian.

“It's been nearly seven years since the PlayStation 4 was released," Keza MacDonald wrote for The Guardian.

"And modern games such as The Last of Us Part II and God of War push it so hard that the poor thing sounds as if it's about to take off. (Incidentally, Rutter assures me that 'a great deal of effort' has gone into making sure the PS5 will be less noisy.)"

Bloomberg also reported earlier this year that Sony had put a lot of money into an “unusually expensive” cooling system for their new console.

Clearly, Sony realised how big of a problem this was for gamers. Sometimes you’d have to wear noise-cancelling headphones just to hear game audio.

It's great that the issue is being addressed.
