PS4's hardware already having problems?

Post by OneBadHuskerFan on Thu Nov 14, 2013 10:23 am

I've been keeping track of reviews, launches, etc...and one thing that seems to be happening right now is that PS4's seem to be failing at a higher than expected rate.  IGN had one brick on them when trying to download something and Kotaku's first review console was DOA.  Add that to some on Reddit, Neogaf, etc...and there may be an issue brewing here.  Usually when it's enough of a problem to get the higher ups to already start tweeting about it it isn't good.  


NeoGaf post on the issues

Oh, no doubt.  I hope this is just a case of the internet overreacting, but it sticks out to me because of Kotaku and IGN both getting bad consoles.  There will be failures on both sides.  I hope neither have to deal with major issues like the RRoD.

That's an interesting conjecture. I have no worries about my day 1 console. Also not the type to be scared of flu shots. Possible correlation?

I sure hope mine is OK.  But failures are going to happen. It's just part of early adoption.  Here's hoping that we all get good ones.

LOL!  No doubt.  I have been through 5 or 6 360's and while my PS3 is still going strong, it was a referb when I bought it so someone had a problem with it.  You used up way too much luck there Miller.  I hope you have been kind to others because Karma is coming for you. lol

I'm more worried about Best Buy telling me that they have no systems left in stock when I go to pick up my reserved system. xD

Ahh, now that's valid. Especially if your store isn't stocking additional launch day stock. I could see those employees selling a reserved system.

Nope not scared of flu shots, and if you get them it kinda means your scared of the flu. I choose not to get them for personal beliefs but thats another topic. I just just don't see a reason to get an xb1 now, the launch games fot it don't interest me at all and why buy a more "risker" xb1 for it to just to sit there until titian fall or destiny drops

You know you make an excellent point.  Both consoles have weak launches all in all.  Yes, there is stuff I am looking forward to playing but nothing I would describe as must have.  Funny thing is I don't care.  I love new tech and I always have a terrible time waiting for stuff.  The good stuff will come in time but at least I get to play with shiny new things until then.  That said, you are the smarter man here.  Waiting is a better option all around.  I am just too weak.

Pretty much sums up how I am about all of this, lol.  The games I'm really excited about are coming out in spring but I can't handle not having the new box, haha.

True "playing with a new box is always way more fun then playing with your old wornout box" oh wait we are talking about game consoles...... ah.... I still feel the same about those too. Now if I got to log in more game time then my normal Fri and sat night thing then I might have got a day one too

The hardware problems are even more wide spread than originally thought!!!  Apparently they completely stop working when shot with a high powered rifle!!! Shocked(and also explode!)
