What The PS4 And Xbox One Look Like To The Predator

Planet Extech have a FLIR camera. That's a camera that does fancy thermal imaging. In other words, yeah, it's how the Predator can see stuff, and it's also how you're going to see some great pictures of the PS4 and Xbox One.

The site had a goal in taking these images: they wanted to show the heat distribution on both consoles, as well as tracking how hot various components got after use. Seems in their testing they found the PS4 to get hotter - around 30 degrees Fahrenheit at one point - but then given the PS4's power supply is internal, while the Xbox One has a separate power brick, that's to be expected.

As anyone with a PC can tell you, no temperature recorded at any point here is anything to worry about.

I've included a few pics here (XB1 on the left, with the top image the XB1's Kinect, PS4 on the right), but the full galleries can be found at Extech.

NOTE: Sorry, I should point out that the images in this post aren't direct "comparison" shots between the consoles. I simply picked the best images to highlight here, not ones directly comparing temperatures at certain run times.

    Right Luke how about stop reposting articles in Kotaku.

      Luke ain't got time to read (prior postings).

      Ahh but how hot are you about this reposting issue? Only a thermal imager can tell us!

    Well he can do what he wants i guess (about reposting) but the xbox one doesn't seem to be too hot in the images.

    I like the idea of a rogue Predator doing tech analysis videos on YouTube.

    Outside of the double posts, like seriously, is this what gaming has come to? People going around doing thermal comparisons of consoles? I'm not sure whether to be happy or sad about this.

    NEXT GENERATION ARE GO!

      is this what gaming has come to? People going around doing thermal comparisons of consoles?

      Yes, anything to feed the fanboys.

        Remember being a kid and arguing if Sonic or Mario was more awesome?
        Yeah these days people argue which machines marketing wank neans better tech specs.
        Would you like to join me for a crying session?
