PS4 Red Line of Death Confirmed as False by Shuhei Yoshida

Concerns of overheating are unfounded according to Sony Worldwide Studios president.

An odd image was doing the rounds earlier today, indicating the “Red Line of Death” on Sony’s PlayStation 4 console. Considering the implications it would have – remember the Xbox 360’s Red Ring of Death? – this obviously lead to concerns and skepticism among gamers.

However, President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios for SCE Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed on Twitter that all talk of the Red Line of Death is false.

So have no fear, those who pre-ordered and even those who are looking to buy the console – the PlayStation 4 faces no such hardware defect that will halt its functioning. At least, well, none that can be indicated by a red light.

The PlayStation 4 is slated to release on November 15th in North America and on November 29th in Europe. It will be launching across 32 territories, with a Japanese launch due in February 2014. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to launch day.

    WTF was anyone concerned about anyways?
    What did you plan on doing, keeping your PS4 in an airtight case next to a gas heater? In the oven at 400 degrees?
    OMG The PS4 will overheat if you do not let it have any cool air. Even if that article is false I’m pretty sure you can cause a PS4 to overheat.
    It’s like someone being upset over an article that says, “People will drown if they stay underwater too long.”
