Shuhei Yoshida, Sony President of Worldwide Studios, has confirmed via Twitter that the PlayStation 4 will not use a power brick. Instead, the power supply will be housed internally, not unlike the Xbox One.

 
 

Additional details regarding the PlayStation 4's power supply and how the company managed to fit it within the console's relatively small casing are still unknown, but at least we have a better idea of what Sony has in store for us later this year.

:hmm: I hope this doesn't mean it's going to be more likely to overheat.

Wait so the Xbox 1 is half the size of my TV AND needs a power brick! You would think with how big that thing is they would stick it inside.

"not unlike" means the same, in other words xbox one also doesn't have a power brick, according to this article.

So, is there any info on a 'beep' sound when the PS4 powers up? I really hate that every time I activate my PS3. Still hoping for a patch to mute it.

The power brick although very inconvenient actually helps the system keep cool, as you can probably can tell that power brick is not just big but also gets pretty warm after a while. I guess Sony is confident with their cooling for the system.

i thought the overheating happen with the fat 40GB model of the ps3 was happen due to the cell processor which back then it's sized 90 nm, then sony learn from their own mistake and built the slim 160GB with 45 nm which really reduced the power consuming and heat, now the new slim ps3 CPU is 40 nm RSX.

 

also thanks to the image you shared about the back of the ps4 :) so they got rid of the AV cable ports i see :D

The back of it is filled with ventilation holes, so I doubt it will overheat easily

Yea the av ports are gone good thing they added the AUX port though because my monitor doesn't have any speakers and wouldn't be able to get sound x.x (to get sound on ps3 I have a hdmi to monitor and av sound cables connected to a adapter which connects to speakers/headphones) but suppose they had to do it anyways for all the gaming headsets also.

I can't say the other consoles power bricks ever really bothered me but it is nice to see that the PS4 looks to use the same power cord the PS3 does.

Good. I don't like power bricks as they are always a pain to place somewhere out of view. Glad to see that the PS4 woun't have one.

This is my thought exactly. While people may complain about power bricks, having an external power source means less internal heat. Here's to hoping the found a good way to cool the boards.
