    Early ps4 hardware issues

    i was reading on neogaf that a guy got his ps4 from taco bell and it bricked on him
    this is what he said


    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!

    **UPDATE**
    Went thru a number of "fixes" with customer service and none of them worked. They are shipping me a box to get the unit serviced.
    Safe Mode on the console no longer works.

    EDIT...... http://uk.ign.com/articles/2013/11/1...tion-4-systems

    More hardware issues.......updated OP

    Wow that stinks, let's hope since it was a free Taco Bell console they gave him a crappy build.

    It would be funny if he took it to a taco bell to be returned/replaced/fixed.

    How does a day one patch affect something like this? Would he have already gotten it?

    I've seen two similar stories roaming the internet. Every manufacture is going to have issues with initial production of a new product. I wouldn't look too into it.

    Was there any taco residue in the system?

    Yep, thats the risk you run with launch systems and no extended warranty, good thing it broke on him now than 2 years down the line.

    Extended warranties are useless for me. The product either doesnt break or it breaks a month outside the warranty.

    SO we're at what? 3 failures out of thousands of taco bell consoles? No need for alarm, IMO.

    I wonder if this had to do with the update that was surprisingly released today.

    I totally agree.
    Of course it's good to have just in case, but in my experience 9 out of 10 times its breaks after the warranty is up.
    I take good care of my things, so they never brake till 3 to 5 years later.

    Seems another taco Bell PS4 has bit it. So far we got:
    1. NEOGaf users "Dylx" - PS4 bricked up downloading a game update
    2. Reddit user "Arogon" - Bricked up, not sure how though
    3. Reddit user "YearsofLove" - Bricked up, not sure how though
    4. http://www.twitch.tv/hi11zones - Bricked up, not sure how though
    5. Apparently there is another one, but I'm not sure who


    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 0.125% failure rate? lol

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

    Manufacturing defects are a 100% certainty. Fortunately, I've never had the misfortunate of owning a defective console. *knock on wood*
