Why the PlayStation 4 attracts so many cockroaches, explained by a technician

Tu PlayStation 4 stopped working suddenly and you don’t know why? The answer may be simpler than expected: cockroaches. A technician explains why the PlayStation 4 attracts so many cockroaches and the dangers that can result in .

seems to lie but the Sony PlayStation 4 is unusually vulnerable to infestation of cockroaches. Several technical services specializing in consoles say that most of the PlayStation 4 receiving contain cockroaches inside (although also receive Xbox One and other consoles). What is this? A technician explains that most consoles are horizontally in closed or dark areas so they are quite cozy for small creatures. The design of the back of the PlayStation 4 allows cockroaches settle better than on other consoles because their ventilation grilles are wider. Vents are at the bottom of the console, so the cockroaches can enter easily.

Warm, in a closed space and close to the ground, makes it the ideal console so that form large nests of cockroaches.
