    I got my PS4 back and got a brand new unit?

    I don't know if anybody's got a repair done with Sony but I sent mine off last week. I noticed it was strange that they received my unit in the evening and sent one off the next day at 12:00AM noon.

    I was hoping I'd get a new unit and it looks like I did. It didn't come in a brown box, no controllers or power cords obviously but this thing is brand new for sure. It smells new and doesn't have dust or a feather scratch of any kind. I'm pretty pleased with the quick turnaround and new unit.

    With so few breaking I guess they have to ship fresh ones till they get a refurbish pile going.

    You most likely received a refurbished system that was already waiting to be shipped. Your broken console will be repaired and shipped to the next person who sends theirs in. They will also think they got a new unit.

    It is supposed to look new. That is called factory refurbished. Parts replaced with brand new parts. If it was in fact brand new, you would have received the controller and everything that comes with a new console.

    When you shipped your PS4 out to Sony, you kept your controller correct? So did the person who sent in their broken PS4. The PS4 in which you received looking new.

    Sony does not just have a stash of new consoles to give out to people when theirs breaks. The always refurbish the systems. It is always about money.

    Lol..

    It doesn't matter it's a refurbished one OP. It has to be less than six months old, the PS4 didn't come out till Nov 16.

    lol So going by that because there's no controllers or power cords it's refurbished, that's pretty dumb. They are obviously going to take them out they're not going to give people free stuff getting a "new" replacement isn't abnormal when a product is fairly new. Google it a bunch of folks got new units in return sony has even told them so.

    I know the consoles are refurbished. But if it makes you feel better, I will act like I am wrong and say you got a new one.

    It doesn't matter either way. What matters is that you got a now working console.

    P.S. Sony would never say they sent you a brand new console. They will ALWAYS say they are sending a "replacement"

    Why would they send a refurb in retail packaging? Guess they have refurbished retail boxes lying around.

    I've done a repair with Sony in the past and when they send you a refurbished unit or "replacement" unit, it doesn't come in the original packaging.
