    I have a few Questions before Purchasing a PS4

    How does the System handle playing Video Codecs?

    Does the System prevent playing certain Videos?

    Does the System heat up when only using UMS???? My PS3 always gets hot, even when not doing anything or playing any Videos.

    Does the PS4 have a Cover which can be removed to disperse the Heat better?

    I just use Plex to play video on the ps4. that way it doesn't matter what codec the video is in, the server transcodes

    Does the PS4 heat up like no other? My PS3, anywhere into a Hour using it, the Fan Kicks into 2nd Gear, then 1-2 Hours later, into Holy Shit (Mode) 3 before it is too hot to operate anymore.
