    Console failure rates "Under 1%"

    http://www.psu.com/a021726/Sony-revi...te-to-under-1-

    should i re-iterate that this has been blown out of proportion, or is this just a cover up from sony's PR department?

    i believe the failure rate they state, as NONE of my ps4 owning friends have had any issues (the number is around 20). what do you guys think?

    i happen to agree youngmullah, even so sony is expediting new ps4's for the unlucky ones who got a DOA system, which is quite honestly awesome of them to do so.

    i really don't see this becoming another RROD fiasco at least in the near future

    %1 of a million isn't a lot in the big picture. but it's enough that if everyone with a broken system gets on the internet and starts $#@!ing about it; it starts to seem like a lot. especially when everyone with a working system is too busy playing to post about their experience with a working console. and mine works just fine by the way.

    so yea, i agree. the whole thing was blown way out of proportion. and im glad sony released revised numbers. the %.4 was for pre-release consoles. and by the way, people made a big deal about ps3's ylod, but the ps3's failure rate was actually below average for consumer electronics.

    Microsoft fanboys have performed one of the biggest smear campaigns a console has ever seen. They knew they have lost the next gen console war unless they did something drastic, which was to scare uneducated, impulsive and emotional people with insane amounts of FUD all over the net.

    Even prior to the PS4 launching it was obvious they were going to attack the failure rate and use that as their guise. There was what, 6 people on the internet that had issues with their PS4's, and more than a few failures were from their own stupid mistakes? There was at least 4000 of them out there from the taco bell winnings, not to mention all the review units. Yet it was blown way out of proportion on media sites and comments sections to pave the path for the PS4's release FUD campaign. Then once they found somebody with a legitimate problem, they exploited it and repeated themselves to death to make it seem a lot worse than it was.

    Even if the XB1has a failure rate 30x's that of the PS4, I am willing to bet it's coverage will go mostly unnoticed and there will be positive reviews painted all over the net (like at places such as Amazon). Just watch, it will happen.

    That ReviewTechUSA guy is backtracking....and it pisses me off to no end.

    He was on the bandwagon about the PS4s bricking....I think he made 2 videos on it. And now he's like..."oh, its no big deal....it was blown out of proportion."

    What a jackass.

    It was good drama though, we had the click-farming articles about mass failure rates, fanboys making fake reviews on amazon, other fanboys trying to use those figures as some kind of quantifiable proof and the posts of a dozen GAFers/1-2 journalists heralding the close-but-no-cigar train wreck of mass console bricking.

    Lol PS4 has only been out for 7 days how can we tell anything just yet...
    Better yet PS4 isn't even released worldwide yet... After Japan gets PS4 then do an analysis of failure rates.

    I'm predicting a 4% failure rate at the end of 2014.

    Exactly. This is all just PR right now to try and head off the "rumors" going around the web.

    Don't pay attention to that guy. All he likes to do is listen to his voice. It's like listening to Total Biscuit trying to get to a point.

    1% might be overblown but it's not that big even at that for a massive NA console launch. (I'm lookin' at you, 360!). Still, it does indeed suck for the folk whose machines are faulty.

    While I agree most of the reports are pure FUD. I doubt it will have any impact on sales. People who are not die-hard gamers aren't reading the forums that have the FUD posted. The FUD is refuted. And the larger reputable outlets that non die-hard gamers might run across (i.e. major media sites.) Aren't reporting anything (or at most the 1% number.)

    Anyone with a brain should be able to say ok, 1% that's not bad, and I can just take it back and get another if I have a problem.

    There will be ever bit as much reporting on XB1 failure rates as there was on PS4.

    It's just a shame that you do have a few A-holes out there that try to make major statements like 40% failure rates of PS4 Launch units from Amazon.
