    Any videos of actual bricked PS4s? I've seen posts w/ claims but no video evidence. Sorry but at this point I'm not going to believe such posts until I see empirical evidence.

    To be honest I hope this is a bunch of false claims. I'm sure the truth will come out one way or another.

    I hope it's false claims too because if ps4's are bricking that fast.. Sony will have a huge problem.

    This guy was streaming his attempt to get the ps4 working, but he seems like a moron so it could be like the old saying, "99% of computer problems happen somewhere between the chair and the keyboard!"

    Though his stream went out, came back on and is now out again, maybe when he had to unplug stuff? http://www.twitch.tv/hi11zones

    There's gonna be defective units, but man to hear this it is very disappointing and worries me to death. I've waited since E3 to get his console, and I'm going to be livid if I get a brick. I've got the PS4 update ready to go on a USB drive just so my internet doesn't stall out and put me in a similar situation.

    If those peoples broke after a couple days of owning one I would hate for mine to break after 5 months to a year.

    defects are always a possibility. From DF's testing the PS4 runs at a sufficient heat level to not worry its internals. so the very few numbers being reported are likely just the natural fault with mass production.
    ie, there will be a few defects that slip though.

    According to DF though, the console runs hottest when gaming + having the UI up. With an overhead to facilitate that action, the PS4 should be reliable enough to last.

    The astroturfers are evolving.




    The light on the ps4 is solid when in use, mine flashes on and off. isn't the red or flashing red of over heating.

    They have directed me to re download the 1.50 firmware onto usb.

    For those criticizing, if this happens to you (hope it doesn't) refer to this thread for help, skip past the "jokes"...

    After giving out his full name, PS4 bar code, and his address over stream.. the dude at http://www.twitch.tv/hi11zones got his PS4 working after reformatting the drive. During downloading DCUO it supposedly froze and he unplugged it, wouldnt surprise me if 80% of the 5 or so faulty units were freaking user error.

    Taco Bell gave out around 4,000 or more PS4s in there contest, so thats a really tiny failure rate. What are we at? A 0.1% failure rate? lol

    Just to mention it: Kotaku received a PS4 with a faulty HDMI

Out of hundreds of thousands or even a million or more consoles, you don't think a few are going to have issues? Seriously? I mean, come ON! Now, if out of say 500,000 launch consoles you get something OVER 5% or so reported failures, you might actually have an issue related to production or design. Anything there or less is normal.

    Just think about it for a bit guys. Electronics fail...product assembly fails. There is a normal percentage of failure expected. Actually for a quality industry product it's probably more realistically <2-3% failure rate so yeah 5% would be a mite high, but still..... Think about it logically and realistically and don't "WORRY" about getting a bricked console. Sure, you might. But the chances of that kind of issue actually being wide spread are very small. That is after all, why MS had such a huge problem with their RROD and it cost them over $1 billion just to replace units for customers. The same thing probably won't be repeated again and it CERTAINLY won't happen to Sony.

    All you have to decide is what to do with the time give to you....
