    I've bought every single PlayStation product on launch (PlayStation, PS2, PSP, PS3 and PS Vita) and every single one of them works perfectly to this day. I've had one PS2 break on me (not my launch one) and that was because my wife dropped my sledgehammer on it when we were moving. It had already taken a 6 foot drop right on it's disc tray too and worked fine, so I am confident in Sony to build a quality machine.
    Lol. It took a bludgeoning to kill your PS2. I knew they were indestructible!

    As was said by many above, I'm waiting several months before getting my PS4 anyway, need to save up some cash and honestly the launch line up isn't for me. So if there is a real problem at launch, it'll be solved by the time I get a PS4. And honestly, the numbers don't seem that bad either and you can literally just ship it back and get a new console if this happens.

    My buddy had his brick when there was a 5-second hiccup with his internet. I was there when it happened. As the internet in my area is even worse than it is in his area, this is one of the two reasons I still haven't gotten a Wii U, the other being that there isn't even a handful of games on it currently that I'm interested in.

    ps360 just jizzed in his pants.

    his day is fulfilled from 1st gen Ps4 problems.

    Xbox1 is going to have no problems, every console is going to be perfect, they were all hand crafted to perfection.

    OR maybe I should just start closing all your troll threads about sony as you only post them to get people arguing as you sit back and try and paint Nintendo as the best company in gaming that couldn't possibly have any problems
    PS360's desperate, posting links to Twitter, where people quote Metacritic for reviews for games that aren't even available to the public yet. They are also praising a console and games that haven't been made to the public yet; really, I've actually read people praising Ryse on there that don't work or are endorsed by Microsoft. A friend of mine played the demo for Ryse, and just like what I predicted, it's as fun as dialing a phone number.

    I don't really see this as a significant problem since, you know, they are launch consoles which almost always have issues.

    Which is why I wait. Nice try kiddo, but your report isn't necessarily valued.

    Your links do not interest me and are considered spam.

    If that is true that will be pretty amazing. While 20,000 may sound like a lot the percentage is absolutely tiny. The launch 360 supposedly had around a 50% failure rate and they're predicting the PS4 will have a .4% failure rate. I personally think it'll be higher than that but color me impressed if it isn't.

    I thought the same. At first, I didn't like the aspect that in 3 1/2 months the console would have been available that 20,000 units would have hardware problems, however with a projected 5 million units sold, only 20k would have issues, meaning a .4% failure rate is actually surprising.

    The ps4 has been in development since 2008 and we all trust sony to have great QA and QC. Enjoy getting your ps4 tonight(like me) and don't worry about it. We have been pumped about this for so long and now it's here. Don't let some asshole troll ruin it. Xbox one had to do something about the ps4's awesomeness. We are now on top with the ps4, don't forget that!!


    edit: my ps4 works perfectly AWESOME

    Launch problems are unacceptable. They clearly needed more time to work on the console.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Attention, Honest customer speaking!, November 15, 2013
    By
    W.Lin - See all my reviews



    Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    This review is from: PlayStation 4: Launch Edition (Video Game)
    I write this review on Nov 15th. If you click on the name of those who gave a one star review for ps4, you will find their review history interesting----only one review. For those who gave 5 or 4 stars, you may find other review history.(Like me) Secondly, how do they know their PS4 is DOA if the ps4 HAS NOT EVEN BEEN SHIPPED? As far as I know, if you order the item on 12:01 am Nov 15th, even the best delivery won't allow anyone to recieve it before Nov 16th. But those one star customers got their PS4 on Nov 15th. Did they pre-odered it? Did they all choose one-day delivery? All 100plus of them?

    I interpreted that as a statement that it's normal for consoles to have problems and therefore it's ok.

    WTF did you mean?
