    Ok. Going to fire this up again later agree about a year and a half of non-use.

    Best AAA Sony exclusives released during that time please. Preferably with extra Pro shininess.

    Resident Evil 2 wasn't PS exclusive you idiots.

    Days Gone got a bit of a rough ride from EG but I really enjoyed it, enough to get the platinum, and the HDR is nice in it too.

    Not many AAA Sony exclusives in the last 18 months to choose from

    Days Gone, Death Stranding and Dreams are all I can think of

    Thanks. It's probably been longer than 18 months truth be told. But I'm quite keen to give it a go again.

    So my year old 72xx series Pro has joined its siblings in being far too loud.

    Just stuck on some Doom 2016 in anticipation of Eternal on Friday and it's gone full on hairdryer mode. Console is clean, the fan is spotless, intake and exhaust are also clear. Without disassembling it and shining a light through, the heatsink looks fine too.

    What the hell causes this? I'm assuming he thermal compound has dried out?

    @MrAGSystems Doom was the about the only major culprit for my new Pro's fan going apeshit . Nothing else has come close although the new Nioh seems to be taxing the fan.

    @Blackmarsh63 It was mostly fine for the last 10 months (including with Doom).

    It seems to knock the fact to max speed too when there's lots of alpha on screen - one of Scorpion's intros on MK11 does it every single time. Playing Arkham Asylum last night and could do it on command by jumping into the water. Bear in mind that Ayslum on PS4 looks almost the same as PS3.

    Bummed that the new Nioh is taxing it too, was gonna pick that up after Doom Eternal.

    Fan is ridiculous on my pro when playing rdr2. To the point I have to put subtitles on as I canít hear what is being said. My regular PS4 had a bit of fan noise, but nowhere near as bad as this :(

    PES seems to trigger it too.

    @robc84 have you taken the hood off and given the fan a clean? Could help. I also bought some little legs for mine and it does help

    Just replace it. The battery is cheap, and replacement is very simple.

    My Pro fan noise is terrible, I had to buy the Gold PS4 headset to drown it out. It does have the added bonus of sending my missus up to bed though so every cloud.

    Just sorting an issue for a friend, he can't play video files off a USB hard drive because he has no Internet for a month at his girlfriends house, just found out you need an online connection to activate the media app everytime you load the app.

    Is there an alternative app like VLC or plex that works offline?

    Tell him to turn his mobile into a hotspot (it'll be in the network settings) then connect to his phones internet on the ps4. It'll work and barely use any of his data.

    That is not true. You can load the app and play media files without an internet connection.
