    It didn't have anything to do with %'s. I was sincere. It has to suck for all those people, 1% or 90%, that have defective units.

    .. .and the shortcut is :roll: to make

Again, this is just Amazon, not the ones sold from the others like Best Buy, Gamestop, etc.. An article I was reading I forget what city they checked, but no stores were having customer returns, which makes me think it is related to delivery methods of Amazon.
    It's a fact of life that only a very small number of people will rate a item as good, where as most would rate it as bad.

    This is because humans like a good moan, and people that have a bad item will rate it bad thinking that in some way it will help them to get what they want from said store in terms on refunds and so on.

    This fact is highlighted by fact amazon only have 878 reviews, I'm very very sure Amazon have sold and shipped a hell of a lot more systems than that in the US.

    Exactly. Yoshida-san said 0.4%. I know there are many people in this forum that are math challenged but 0.4% means 0.004 failure rate.

    http://o.canada.com/technology/gamin...4-of-consoles/
    PlayStation 4 hardware issues reportedly only affect .4% of consoles

    It is 0.4%.

    It is not 4%, which would be ten times the statistical failure rate.

    It is not 40%, which would be 100 times the statistical failure.

    If this was some huge manufacturing problem, one whole day after launch, then there would be a lot more of these n00b "first time" posts. This sounds like one of those guys that get permabanned over and over and still keep trying.

    ... Yoshida doesn't have the first clue to actual numbers, in the real world. Just statistical theory.

    The ones we got from Amazon we packed tighter than a drum. Virtually no movement.

    That being said, of 881 reviews 323 are rated 1 star and from what I can see, most are verified purchases. That doesn't guarantee anything but this may end up being a bit higher than what Sony is admitting. This is not a problem that can be dismissed out-of-hand,.

    Firstly when you first post something like this could you at least provide some pictures? It would make much easier to take you seriously, which nobody right now does..

    Secondly. What is up with making such a sensational headline? It's coming off as if you're baiting.

    And thirdly: "relying on Sony (..) But guess what!!", "40% of them are getting Dead Units", "Help!!!!"

    Enjoy your XBox One. LOL

    Yeah, but how many are failures and how many are gripes about what it doesn't have? Like mp3? I thing a lot of this has been sensationalized by people who don't want to see it do well for whatever reason.

    You know what I find strange about this thread? The OP was 2 hours ago and the poster hasn't replied on it since.. Does that sound like the behaviour of a desperate gamer who is dying to get on a shiny new piece of hardware...? I'd be all over it like hot snot if it was me having issues..

    Very true. The ones I took the time to read complained about a dead/faulty console but I didn't read all of them.

    First of all.. mine is WORKING... and I have never ever bought anything other than PS... so now hear me out.

    This seems to be a pretty big deal. There are so many bricks being reported on Amazon reviews. Like, it's pretty unreal actually. I really think that this might be something to worry about. I gotta tell you, I am very concerned for my PS4, and for Sony in general right now. I don't see how you guys would totally disregard these reports.... but I hope you are right.
    I love my PS3, but I'm ready for the PS4!

    You do realize that the ones having problems are more likely to post negative reviews, right?
