One issue plaguing the PS4 is the amount of noise it makes, especially when running very graphically intensive games. The concern with the PS5 is that the next-generation console would have the same issue, despite the larger size. But that’s reportedly not the case, according to Japanese outlet 4Gamer.
Having had an early hands on with the PS5, 4Gamer reports that the console ran quietly while running Godfall. Dengeki Online, another Japanese outlet, corroborated the report, having also run Demon’s Souls on the console. Both outlets also say that the exhausted air wasn’t extremely hot.

4Gamer also shared another detail on the DualSense PS5 controller that will be helpful when playing local multiplayer games. In addition to the blue LED surrounding the touchpad, it has additional lights immediately below it. These indicate if you are player one, two, three or four in a game, with the number of LEDs lighting up to represent the number.
Sony Interactive Entertainment has so far revealed very little about the console beyond the important details. So it’s nice to see the smaller stuff being reported by those who have the chance of experiencing the console before the rest of the world. The PS5 launches on 12 November in selected markets, and 19 November globally.
