PS5: Users report overheating problems with launch day consoles

Next-gen consoles are here, and they are absolutely phenomenal.

This time, PS5 users are noticing their console overheating. Let's take a look at what we know so far!

Issues have been fairly sparse since the console's launch, except for the fact that no-one can find one.

However, some issues have started to crop up and come to our attention.


It seems that some users are having issues with the PS5 and it's Rest Mode.
