PlayStation 5 Will Run Incredibly Quietly, According To Multiple Previews

Great news for anyone that knows how loud a PS4 Pro can be.

The PS5 will run impressively quietly, according to reports from Japanese press outlets that have gone hands-on with the console.

Both 4Gamer and Dengeki Online have both noted how quiet the console runs, even while playing next-gen titles like Godfall and Astro's Playroom.

PlayStation 5 Will Run Much Quieter Than PS4

In Dengeki Online's preview of the hardware, it was noted that the tester had to check the PS5 was still on at some points, such is the quietness of the console.

4Gamer echoed that sentiment, noting that warm air could be felt coming out of the console but without actually hearing the fans running.

That's impressive, although we're unsure as to whether the console was running a physical or digital version of Godfall (Astro's Playroom comes preinstalled on the PS5 console).

That means there's always the chance that the console could be a little louder when spinning a disc.

It's worth noting that as popular as the PS4 has been this generation, both it and the PlayStation 4 Pro often sound like a jet engine when running more demanding games.

Nothing quite ruins the mood in an emotional scene in The Last of Us Part 2 than the console trying to take off.

It's a positive bit of news for PlayStation fans, but it's worth remembering that a recent leak suggested that the console's much-touted SSD will only offer 664GB of storage space.

While Japanese outlets have got their hands on the console, they aren't the only ones.

Rapper Travis Scott already has a PlayStation 5 console, the lucky so-and-so.
