    5 PS4's already broke

    Kotaku's Review PS4 Broke (Review ps4's = Retail ps4):
    The PlayStation 4: The Kotaku Review (In Progress)


    Aside from all this online stuff, there's one other awkward detail that I can't accurately assess at this moment. It's this: the first retail PS4 we got from Sony didn't work. Now, please, don't panic. It's impossible to tell how much of a fluke this was or whether this is the canary in a coal mine of pending PS4 hardware troubles.
    Neogaf user's Taco Bell PS4 Broke:
    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=715057

    After playing a brief game of NBA 2k14 I quit and inserted my battlefield 4 disk. The system prompted for an update, so while watching the progress bar (Around 20%) my controller light turned from blue to white. Hasn't worked since...

    Get those extended warranties ready! and SCEA on speed dial!

    Reddit user's Taco Bell PS4 Broke:
    I have the Taco Bell PS4 right now in my hands, AMA : PS4

    When I turn on my console it just sits there pulsing blue. As far as I can tell it is supposed to turn white but it isn't doing that. There is no signal on my tv either. I talked to at least 5 tech support people on the phone and 1 on-line. All of them but two outright refused to help me saying that the console is not yet released and they can't help me. Two of the tech tried to help me boot it up into safe mode and that failed. At that point they both told me to call back Friday. I have the video of my initial boot up here:arogon1416 - Streaming PS4 thingies - Twitch if you want I can make a new video better explaining my problem.

    Another Reddit user's Taco Bell PS4 Broke:
    So, I also got a faulty ps4 from tacobell, here is my support story : PS4



    So I also had a faukty ps4 shipped to me this morning, when I realized that it wasnt working I called support and this is that account.
    I was first connected to a girl called Lauren, she was very nice and helpful and took me through a normal troubleshooting process, when none of that worked she created a full support ticket and said I would receive a call back.

    About an hour later I got a call from a guy called Joe concerning my support ticket. He also took me through some troubleshooting before taking me that my console would have to be shipped in for support. He offered to expedite the whole process as much as he could, and apologized profusely for the mistake.

    So overall it is a dissapointing day, but I'm at least glad I got good support from the people at Sony, and that it is being handled as quick as possible.

    TLR broken ps4 was handled by Sony in a quick, yet still dissapointing manner.

    This is very troublesome. I really hope that launch units are well-made with an under 10% failure rate.

    I'm surprised more of the display units in places like Target and GameStop don't break. They are enclosed in a space with very little ventilation and left on all the time.

    yeah i was just gonna say it's not surprising since the console in locked up in a hot box, can't be good for it.

    This doesn't mean anything. Ps360 would want nothing more than a massive PS4 failure and hardware recall at launch, so he can laugh to himself while playing his Wii U in his Nintendo shrine. That is your dream isn't it Ps360...?

    This is more of a journal of PS4 units he's successfully sabotaged. I imagine we'll get an update on every 5 he breaks.

    Lol... guess we knew there were some troubles on the way. Imagine how many more machines are already broken/soon to be broken given that several more or less come out of the box useless.

    Not cool but they kinda have to rush to get a competitive edge.

    Everyone knew this.. of course 360 got aroused when seeing a modest issue with launch consoles the day/BEFORE official release, makes a big deal about it.

    In terms of a hard reboot that only took just under 2 minutes and my question is why would they hit the button to turn the controller on? Any true SONY fan would know enough to press the button. If you ask me the guy that made the video is trying to detract sales away from SONY by trying to bash them and depict the system as slow and unresponsive. Plus my other question is did that store download the update?

    Oh, well... hmm... I don't know what I try to say about this, these PS4s are not real gaming, it is just like demo in a kiosk, there's always problems with the demo-game consoles like PS3 and XBox 360 at everywhere like Wal Mart, Target, GameStop, and other retail stores whichever they have them for demo-game consoles. About Taco Bell thing, I'm glad I don't win that prize and I read about they had complained about PS4 problem, maybe Sony didn't finish them and they saved them for Taco Bell prizes before they send them to the retail stores for PS4 launching.

    Liquidln2 - Twitch Watch a guy who is actually streaming at high quality from the PS4 instead of a dumbass that unplugged his ps4 while downloading the console patch and removed the HDD.

    PD: Necromarker666 is your username in Twitch ? Kind of lame you were posting your thread link in the chat and nobody gave a flying f*ck.

    Someone was actually dumb enough to link this thread in the IGN comments section as a "source" showing the PS4 having launch issues. Probably the best thing that ever happened to the internet persona that is Ps360....

    nope

    miyac1 is mine


    also blindly accepting twitch chat as truth is a bad idea. he was actually operating the PSN and stuff then it crashes.

    The Bricking begins at 23 minutes. it bricks before unplug (Same thing that happened with the neogaf poster, The ps4 went white and bricked.)

    I love consumers that do not read the instruction manual before doing anything and then their console breaks because they wanted to dick around on the system without any know how between anything and if it doesn't go as fast as they want too they flip out and press a whole bunch of buttons.
