I get what you are saying here. Yes, absolutely the first time it broke was my roommate's fault. I don't fault Sony for that at all.
I get your point about driving it into a wall. For all I know, the overheating issue caused by my roommate, could have somehow effected this new issue. I shouldn't be crapping all over Sony, when none of it might even be their fault.
So maybe I should just pony up the cash and sell it like I planned once it is fixed? How much does an OG model PS4 with 1TB go for used these days?
sounds very strange indeed, but it doesn't work at all? not even while the usb cable is connecting the controller directly to the console? Have you tried both usb ports just incase there is an issue with one of those?
wondering could you try something like this would you have any luck, if it's useful for you to have a PS4 working like this giving up the wireless aspect of it (thinking it could be damage to the PS4's Bluetooth antenna internally) I don't suppose you have another Bluetooth device you could try and connect to the system (lol impossible without a controller I guess... fuck)
Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
