    My PS4 finally it died!

    Well, as I posed in the forum about 2 months ago that my PS4 it started acting stupid such as picture without sound or sound without picture, resting by its self, and so on. 3 days ago, my PS4 it turned off by its self 3 times and on and than no picture appeared I just saw the 4 color bars yellow, red, and white. I called Sony they said I have to send it in for service. I think its software problem not hardware and this new PS4 operating system is totally garbage. I remember never had any problems with my PS3 until it passed 2 years half when I got the yellow light of death. Its kind strange that this problem it has occurred in less them 7 months. And the sad news is that I got an early copy of wolfenstein the new order but can't play it no PS4.

    Sorry for your loss. It's a shame consoles are super sloppy and socially accepted in their rushed state. At least they are giving you another one.

    That sucks but at least youre getting another one. As for getting Wolfenstein early that never happens to me because no retailers in my area ever break the street date.

    That sucks but these things happen sometimes and unfortunately it's come at the wrong time for you, but like it's already been said at least they are sorting you out with another one so it's not all doom and gloom!

    You most know someone who will have a video game store. My cousin has a video game store and all the time he gets his shipment on Thursday and with the note written on the box from the developers saying do not sell before the game due date release. Since he is my cousin which he trust me that's how I get the games early.

    Yes friend no choice I have and just to wait. Sony repair center in Canada is located in Whitby and it takes half day to get the system when its being shipped. I will get my PS4 on Thursday or Friday. I will buy a new PS4 when there will be a price cut as I did with my PS3. In cause of something will happened I do have another one.

    Actually, I have 36 months warranty and not only 1 year.

    Yeah, when I sent my ps4 in because of the ejecting issue, they sent me a new unit. Unfortunately, I had to call them to deactivate the previous console before Icould activate the new one as the main unit. So, just keep that in mind
    for some reason, i feel like stuffing an unrevealing yet obvious porn dvd case with goldfish snack crackers after removing the dvd and sell it to a gullible teenager.

    think you can do that on their website but you have to deactivate all your consoles. can't just deactivate one. kinda stupid.

    Yeah, I called customer support for psn, and got it taken care of in less than 10 minutes. Though, it would have been faster if the support guy wasn't.... How can I say this tactfully... From India or had working ears and didn't need the whole "n as in Nancy, o as in Oscar, p as in power, e as in elephant." For literally every single word that needed spelling even though I know how to enunciate. :P yay.

    I think you will be ok as the PS4 software will be patched.

    Sorry to hear.

    I kinda feel your pain.. the first PS4 I bought ended up not even working right out of the box.. was really disappointing.

    I did end up getting a new one however.

    ps4 seems to be having more QC issues in its first year compared to the ps3 (the ps3 fat models were rock solid as far as hardware goes).

    I disagree. I seem to remember alot more reports of PS3 fats dying than PS4. Of course nothing even came close to the RROD fiasco that the 360 had.

    I really don't remember reading of as many issues with the ps3 fat 20 gb and 60 gb models in its first year of release (2006-07) as i come across with the ps4 on this forum and official ps forums. ps4 seems to be presenting more issues, not just the console dying but also error messages, freezes etc. the rrod fiasco with the 360 was on another level but ms seems to have learned their lesson this gen.

    I still imagine the failure rate is in the 1-3% range. PS4 guts are pretty much off the shelf computer parts, shouldn't have any higher failure rate than a laptop or desktop.

    I remember there being way more reports on the PS3 fat. Even my own PS3 fat died in less than a year. And yeah MS does seemed to have learned their lesson. Other than at launch I haven't been hearing much about X1 failures.

    Sony exchanged the PS4 and hopefully this one will less for long.

    Even if you did, we aren't seriously suggesting we can determine console failure rates by forum posts, are we? Cuz that is just silly.
