    Angry Got a busted PS4? PROVE IT!

    Tired of reading people on forums about DOA consoles and outrageous failure rates, especially by people that seemingly register just to post "My PS4 is a dud". From now on, if you're having issues with your PS4 I think it should be protocol for the poster to upload a pic of their PS4 with their user name written on a piece of paper in the photo just to prove that do in fact have the console. It's way too easy for people to just pile on for no reason other than to make SONY or the PS4 look bad when they don't have to put up or shut up. Rant over.

    I have to agree. It's the year 2013, it's not hard to post a pic or a vid to the net. Almost every smartphone can do it, even.

    I agree with this and am bumping it up. Encourage others that agree with this to keep responding and request any PS4 failure reports be moved to this thread, if there is photo proof.

    Quite frankly, so far, this is turning into a fizzle FUD effort by Sony Playstation haters. It's possible the first free units given to game journalists and contest winners had some assembly problems. And once again, it was Kraptaku that started it, then later, duh, we didn't get the HDMI connector in snugly. Fricking bozos over there.

    Yes, no photo, no proof, STFU.

    I do find it quite weird that the PS4 will show signs of life yet some posters are quick to say DOA time for a new one.
    The European launch will be interesting as it will likely be a different batch.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    Gaf has over 200 pages about PS4 launch units, and you know if there were something wrong that place would be squealing like stuck pigs. Didn't look at all 200 pages but it is mostly many people confirming they are happy with their PS4 and really liking the improved responsiveness of the DS4. Those pages are worth going through, finding out the light is on by default, there is a setting to turn it off, and that other headsets are working plus people are finding the voice commands work with the mic to the DS4 controller, including screen capture. There is the complaint that saved content can't be directly saved to a USB stick or hard drive but it seems like it would very easy to just email them to yourself.

    No, if there was some serious huge assembly problem, gaf wouldn't have over 200 pages praising the PS4. FUD effort fizzelated.

    There are dozens more if you want to see them. But I'm sure it's all one giant conspiracy by people who don't even own PS4s just like you said. Because you know everything.

    I think DOAs are so funny. People get so concerned about them. If your spitting out Millions of products, statistically not all will work. Plus theres the illusion that there are more DOA products then working ones because..? Not all people go on forums or post reviews about how well the product is working. If its working, people are using them and not making a fuss. Go trade in your DOA product with the standard 30 days from the retailer and be happy that you can.

    Exactly^

    Some people are gonna get bad ones, it's just the way it is.
    There's just to many of them for them all to be working statistically.
    It just sucks for the ones that have to deal with it.
    But that's the risk of buying a day 1 console.
    At least your covered and will get a new one.

    Someone from the place I preordered mine from told me he alone has taken 16 calls regarding PS4 problems. He doesnt even work in the customer service department, or at the online store.

    Yup. Like I was saying in that other thread, this is exactly what mine was doing. As long as I'm able to get a working one eventually, I won't complain. One bad apple shouldn't ruin the bunch.

    If it works enough to shine a blue light it can't be completely dead.
    User error has to play some part.
