I live in New Jersey and my power went out twice because of this storm. I was ready to play but I needed to be on the computer to do something when the power shut off. Everything is connected to a Surge protector but glad I was on the computer instead of my console.

I remember when I used to have my Xbox 360 hooked up in the living room I was playing during a thunderstorm and there was a power surge. I saw for a split second an electrical shock spark through the grill of the console, I thought it was fried. I remember I was playing a Madden game.

I shut the console down then turned it back on and luckily nothing happened. Scared me for a second though.

That would would have scared the hell outta me too. Glad your console didn't fry.

I dunno, when a drunk driver hit a utility pole and knocking the power out for a few hours, it didn't damage the PS4 while it was turned on downloading a game. Everything was fine.

In my 19 years of gaming a thunderstorm has never stopped me from playing videogames or setting up a new system, want to know why? Because nothing has ever happened to me during a thunderstorm Lol. No but seriously I don't know if you should, never had any problem like this.


Yea, young buckaroo...it's generally NOT a problem, until, well something happens. All it takes is one badly placed lightning strike.

You're in New Jersey? So am I. We didn't have rain all day but now the clouds are getting thick and the lightning is coming from the west. Windy too. I'm in Ocean County, it was 95 degrees today.

If your power shuts off during the initial update your console will be bricked. Beware.
