My PS4 works fine. No problems whatsoever. Do not underestimate the persistance of Xbot CoD gamers that have nothing better to do with their time than to post a bunch of nonsense. This is my first post here..have been reading articles on here for quite some time. If you are worried about purchasing a PS4 and think there might be hardware problems with it I wouldn't worry. Seems like the people at IGN and Kotaku that had their PS4's fail was just a stroke of bad luck. Also I believe the Xbone will be relatively problem free, hardware wise. I can't imagine MS wants to extend the year warranty to 3 years again. Sry the PS4's web browser doesn't like paragraphs.
Tell me how it's working 6 months from now. XBox 360 was an utter failure, but that occurred sometime down the road, not day one like these people are experiencing. What Sony did was forcing thier way to a superior setup, and a cheap cost - and it may cost them (I mean, US) in a high failure rate.
I avoided the first batch of PS4s and XBOnes for this reason, because these companies can't get it right without some trial/error. I'm using logic and rationale instead of fanboy dedication, to avoid these consoles at launch, because these lemons and subpar console builds at launch are now a commonplace, which ends up being fixed in later itterations. Happened last gen, even worse this gen.
