The PS4 Pro is the new updated version of the PS4 Sony released this year. It has better hardware which equates to better visuals and performance. The only problem is it seems Sony rushed their new hardware to market & it’s coming back to bite them in the ass.
I’ve seen reports of melting PS4 Pro’s, but apparently there’s more to the story. YouTuber CrowbCat created a compilation of videos he found across the net. This compilation contains various people complaining about their malfunctioning PS4 Pro’s. CrowbCat claims
“Failure rate is concerning for a premium product. Despite the well known black screen issue PS4 Pro users had, more serious cases have been reported and a lot of people seem to feel isolated. So I compiled various videos about loud fan noise, coil whine, malfunctoning power, ingame artifacts, defective APU. If you have any of these issues, use your warranty and send it back.”
Obviously not all PS4 Pro’s are breaking down, but this video is worth watching. I want a pro, but I think I’ll wait a year, so that Sony can iron out the kinks. Plus I want to see a game that really takes advantage of this new hardware.
