(Kotaku)   Console gamers love the PS4 because they get cozy warm, have their ventilation grates at the bottom, and tend to be in dark corners which makes them perfect nesting grounds. Excuse me, did I say "gamers"? I meant cockroaches   ( kotaku.com) divider line

Well that's just horrifying

Well, still better than those "PC Gaming Master Race".....  Oh, hell, I can't pull that one here.  Gross.

Freaking console peasants. Luckily my 5 figure gaming rig has ventilation ports on the bottom and gets cozy warm. But I also have it tucked into a dark corner of my desk so I'm way better off than a console gamer.

This seems like it's only a problem if you've got roaches in the first place.

That's it.  I'm buying a Switch.

The article is written about a repair shop in NYC. Roaches in NYC are as common as the farking air, no matter how clean you think your place is. Rich assholes living in penthouses have roaches. You cant escape them. Same goes for the rats. Walk into any building in Manhattan...any building...and I guarantee there are roaches in the walls and rats in the basements. Fact of life there.

Nice try, this is an obvious fake post.  Everyone knows that a real gaming rig either has viewing windows and LEDs to highlight the cooling system or is a completely naked case with a box fan blowing on it to keep the GPU from melting a hole in the motherboard.

Either way it is too bright/windy for roaches.

There's a difference?

Well, if we're talking PS4 gamers, the difference is truly negligible.

Well, come on... We all knew the PS4 was the ghetto console.

When I visited NYC in the 1990s, I saw a rat as big as a toy poodle. Farking thing was huge. People were just ignoring it, like it was nothing.

My rig has dust filters on all the vents, because my housemate has a dog and otherwise the inside would look like one of those "smoker's computer" horror pictures.

This reminds me of when I was visiting a friend who lived in a rather humid area without air conditioning. One afternoon, one of his kids was playing a video game console when, all of a sudden, a colony of ants started marching out of the machine.

They'd never seen it before, either.

It's New York City. You don't have a shotgun hanging in the rear window of your pickup truck. Are people supposed to drop everything and go fight the rat with their bare hands? The rat isn't even your problem anyway, assuming it's not in your home or workplace or the restaurant you're eating in. So walk on, man. Just leave it alone.

Well, that's disturbing.  Call me Friday Next so I can play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Puyo Puyo Tetris, I got a itch my Switch can scritch.

They were just paying their respects to the landowner in the room. No reason to disturb his slumber.

Mine has them too, when I vacuum the living room I just pop the three filters out and use the brush attachment on the vacuum and it cleans them out meanwhile the interior is spotless.  What's weird is that the bottom fan stopped working and before I put the replacement it I noticed that the dust filter was still getting dirty just not as dirty.   I guess Antec balanced the intake and exhaust pretty well if the exhaust fans were still pulling air through the non-working fan.

They'd probably love PC PSU's as well. But I've never seen one with ventilation holes that would allow a cockroach to enter.

This seems like a design flaw on Sonys part. (yes, I could have went with bug).

If you have any fans configured for exhaust, the negative pressure will pull air through any opening in the case. Thus it's still sucking dust into the filter. Just basic physics.

All my fans are configured as intakes, so the internal pressure in the case is positive and air escaping through any vents and seams will blow dust away from the interior.
