PlayStation 4 New Details: Console And Controller Weight Compared To PS3 And HDD Data Speed

How does the PS4 compare to the PS3? Find out here.

German Magazine ComputerBild is currently analyzing a debug unit of the PlayStation 4, and has revealed many new details for the same.

The DualShock 4 reportedly weighs 214, with the DualShock 3 controller weighing 190 grams in comparison. The debug unit itself weighed 2,764 grams. The console itself measures 30.5 x 27.6 x 5.4 cm (width x depth x height).

It has also been revealed that the PS4 only has support for HDMI. So those looking to plug their console into their old CRT screens will be out of luck. All hail the age of HD. The screws holding the console together, which look fairly cool, have been dissected further. The screws holding the HDD in place require Phillips screw-drivers while the other fixations can be opened using a special Torx screwdriver.

The hard disk speed is also revealed to be capable of speeds in the range of 80 to 100 MB per second, with noise levels coming in around 0.83 Sone. The PS3′s noise levels come in at 2.1 Sone by comparison, which is pretty loud all things considered.

Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.

    I’m missing something, why is the consoles weight interesting?

    • Roger Joseph

      It’s for those people that like carrying their console around. I think since i bought my 360 ten years ago i don’t remember moving it. Wireless controllers, home theater hook up and not needing to pick it up to insert a DVD helps.

    • Mike Greenway

      Thank you Roger. I was thinking it was a PS4 tablet or people made weak by cell phone calisthenics.

    Interesting. As someone who has played on both PS3 and 360 I can say the xbox is at least two to three times louder. The newer model fixed the original’s vacuum cleaner sound a bit but it is still pretty loud. Interested to hear this near-silence of the PS4 and also curious to hear how x1 fares.

      The level of optimization on the xbox one regarding noise, just compare with the power… look at the huge awful power brick on the xbox one, where the ps4 doesn’t need one, just a regular cable.
      Now, apply that expertise on hardware, and imagine the ps4 is barely 2 inches height, with slow and ultra silent fans on the corners of the enclosure, and now, imagine the xbox one, like 4 inches height, with a huge massive powerful fast fan, for cooling down(at least, trying…) those 5 billion transistors. Now, ask yourself how noisy the xbox one is. Also, the kinekt has a fan as well, and since it’s a small one, it means it will have to spin ultra fast, for doing the job of a bigger fan, spinning slower. The kinekt alone will add up more 5-10 decibels, at least, to the total noise.

      Maybe 80% of the components are the same, on both consoles.still, the ps4 has no power brick.

      That’s the difference between a manufacturer who has been crafting, inventing great pieces of hardware for many decades, and a blabla manufacturer, who has been selling windows and office apps to billions of people, and manages to sell new versions of windows and office every single year, with only a couple of innovations nobody need, like the metro interface on windows 8.

      You will see, the xbox one will generate 2-3 times more noise than the ps4.

      You only believe that if you’re a low IQ gullible pauper, like yourself.

      You are just a midget Xbot who cant face the truth, deal with it, your console is inferior.

    • Solid Snake

      Don’t allow yourself to sink to that persons level it dose not help your cause.

      Kind Regards,

    • pretsel

      All your consoles are inferior to my PC, peasant.

    • 大王 アレクサンダー

      Tell me then do you enjoy playing The Last of Us, God of War, Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid or GTA5 on your PC “peasant”? Oh wait, you cant play them, how sad :(

      Stop acting like such a fool & engage the discussion productively instead of counterproductively!

      His name is Pauperkill2013.

      He deletes his comment after posting it so he doesn’t get notified of peoples responses because he’s too weak to be able to handle all the attacks thrown back at him.

      And he’s a creepy, basement dwelling delinquent who stalks people. he already stalked me too and I’m a guy. Which maybe comes to show he’s a sexual-deviant for males too.

      Har har har.

    • vajid Ali

      You mean like xboners who believe cloud computing will turn them into demigods? ROFLOL

    • watzcoc

      where you get 50% more power from? specs are identical except for DDR3/ 5 ram.
      Playstation fan boys are idiots and deluded.

    • Solid Snake

      Both consoles internally are similar as in the company supplying the processors & but other then that its pretty obvious theres more differences other then what you mention above.

      Cheers!

    • Solid Snake

      Possibly in some manner or another.

      Cheers & Happy Gaming!

    • Jason Mounce

      Your bra size has 50% more power apparently.

  • whatthehellsony

    only hdmi? why no love for those who use component cables…

    • N4GLaChance

      Then get an Xbox1! Join our exclusive circle jerking club, fellow f@g!

    • Solid Snake

      That was completely unnecessary stop being counterproductive in the discussion & engage the discussion productively!

    • Solid Snake

      Well these days hdtvs are far cheaper then they were years ago so it’s safe to assume most own one these days & thats what sony was probably thinking too.

      Cheers & Happy Gaming!

  • Wanderlei

    HAHAHAHA ps4 is loud as fuck! Overheats! 5400 rpm HDD, this thing is a disater!!!

    • Solid Snake

      You are applying traditional thinking of computing through the convectional principles of mores law but this age of computing is contradiction to it’s very principles.

    $0N¥ PauperStation is for low IQ N4Gtard NeoFAG paupers anyway.

    • 大王 アレクサンダー

      Still smarter then you’ll ever be :)

    • Solid Snake

      Everyone has the ability to be just as smart at anything as anyone else if they apply themselves.
