Roaches Love PS4s: How to Keep Them Out

Roaches Love PS4s: How to Keep Them Out

It's an nearly accepted truth that modern games ship with bugs, but that doesn't mean your PS4 needs to be infested with creepy crawlies.

'The vents are large, so if the console is on the floor the roaches crawl right in there, ' said Porter. But don't fret, there is a solution. After a while, the roaches will breed and poop all over the inside of the PS4.

According to the same Kotaku blog, some console fix techs reported that at least half of the PS4s they service are full of roaches.

Zieminski knows a PS4 is infested because "Roaches leave traces", he says.

Why is that the case? As the name suggests, it's more or less the same console but one that has lost a few pounds and inches. Primarily, consoles can attract bugs because they're often kept inside of home entertainment centers, and provide the kind of dark, warm environment that insects prefer. The PS4 also runs hotter than Xbox One due to its internal power supply, so it's nice and cozy inside. Apparently, Microsoft's Xbox One is also experiencing the same predicament.

So, what can you do?

Gamers who do not want to have their PlayStation 4 consoles treated as a hangout place by cockroaches should place it in the open and in a higher position, to prevent the pests from thinking about crawling into the console's vents.

Keeping your home clean couldn't hurt either. The problem is compounded even more as Business Insider reports that Sony is not interested in repairing roach infested PS4s.
