PlayStation 5 Is Set To Be Sony’s Quietest Console Ever

If you’re a PS4 gamer you’re probably already aware that playing the likes of The Last of Us Part 2 or Ghost of Tsushima is enough to send your console skyrocketing into space with the sheer overwhelming sound of its fans. Thankfully, it seems as though the next-gen PlayStation 5 is going to be much, much more quiet.

A number of hands-on previews of PS5 have now gone live, with multiple outlets reporting that the console isn’t just about as close to silent as you can get, but that it also stays cooler for much longer than PS4.

Dengeki Online went hands-on with the upcoming Sony console and reported that it’s considerably quieter than all current PS4 models, including both the Slim and the Pro. The publication also noted that the console remained cool even after 80 minutes of play.

The claims were also backed up by 4Gamer, where it’s noted that the console could be Sony’s quietest yet. Ironically, that’s music to my ears.

Thankfully the countdown is on to experience PS5, as we’re now just a few weeks away from launch. PS5 will be available with a disc drive, or a cheaper all-digital model will also be available.

Both editions of PS5 will roll out in select markets including North America and Japan on November 12, followed by Europe and additional regions on November 19.

The PS5 Digital Edition will be available for a recommended retail price (RRP) of £359.99 GBP/$399.99 USD, and PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray™ disc drive will be available for an RRP of £449.99 GBP/$499.99 USD.

If you haven’t yet secured your pre-order, you might struggle to get your hands on the console on day one, though more units are promised to become available in the coming weeks.
