    My used alternative fan from some shady Chinese dealer has arrived, as has my fancy thermal paste. Will operate on my Pro this eveningÖ

    Even that offer is showing as out of stock.

    Surely this means something is cooking for E3? Iíve been holding out buying one expecting the Pro to get a price drop at E3 or a slim version. Sony then announced no hardware news, so assumed I was wrong. But a lack and stock and maybe a price cut doesnít really come under a hardware announcement?

    Out of stock everywhere has got to mean something with E3 weeks away surely?

    Sony said no hardware announcements of any kind for E3 2018.

    Could be that there were a lot of people like you who waited, and as soon as Sony said that, went out and bought one, hence low stock.

    My assumption was that GoW had been a large system seller.

    Sony are apparently very coy with stock supplies, like they'll only supply what they feel they'll sell, rather than having shelves filled up. Bit like Nintendo I suppose.

    Is there any thread for Playstation friend names like the Nintendo friend code thread? I got my pro a few weeks ago and have some names on there from a few years ago when I had my OG PS4/3. Just trying to work out who is who and would be nice to add some chaps.

    Lots of games I've not yet played.

    Shadow of the Colossus, Nier: Automatica, Uncharted 4, Last of Us, Horizon: Zero Dawn.

    Will probably go Uncharted 4 this weekend.

    @ozthegweat How did the fan operation go? Out of interest, are you replacing it to try and reduce the noise?

    Personally I'm getting high pitch noise from the machine whenever it needs to work hard (playing God of War, for example). It cuts right through the noise of the game, even if I'm wearing the platinum headset. It's become something of a bugbear with the console.

    For thermal paste, I recommend (at least what I use on my PC) Acrtic Silver 5. Should cost close to £7.00.

    So today i received an email from Sony telling me they'll be dropping the PS3 and PS Vita games from the PS Plus line up.

    Will they be upping the PS4 games to compensate?

    Nope. They confirmed that when they announced their plans. It'll just be 2 PS4 games.

    Maybe restore factory settings, there may be something youíve changed that stops downloading updates

    @mickerty If you boot up in safe mode and install the update that way it should work. I had the same problem last night and that sorted it.

    I've installed the "new" fan and applied the fancy paste. Only had about 5 minutes to test it, the fan seemed quieter and, more importantly, more constant (previously, it changed frequency all the time, which was way more annoying than it being loud).

    Thanks for that it worked a treat. It's also a known issue on the PS website: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/get-help/help-library/error-codes/ce-30002-5/

    Cheers

    Blimey so format the hard drive and reinstall content? That sounds simple but anybody with a full hard drive of games will not be a bit pleased Iím sure.

    Yet another sign that Sony are preparing to move on from the PS4. If they're sending signals like this on investor calls, then I'd imagine that some kind of hardware unveiling is likely to follow this year, for a 2019 release.

    Given the Pro seems to have been completely discontinued I'm hoping for a release by the end of the month.

    Nah. If they're just starting to put teams on launch software then you'll still be looking at a couple of years for development, so it'd suggest 2020/1 release, imo.
