Forums - Gaming Discussion - My brand new PS4 just died....Final Update - 100% Dead and unresponsive. Pic in OP

I genuinely dont wish this on any PS gamer. Its a pretty annoying thing to have happen. I hope all of us gamers dont get this sort of thing.

Hope you get it sorted. And hope I dont have issues this Friday with my ONE.

I hope my ONE is being handled with care and will be fine when it arrives on Friday.

Surely you can pull strings Ben and get a quick resolution to this?


You're back! Just in time for launch.



That is because you bought it at Gamestop, it is a horrible store with horrible people, I never would think to buy a console from them! Hope that is a lesson for you (J/K).

No serious I am really sorry to hear and I hope I will not get it X_X.

Awww that sucks to hear. I am probably going to get the 36 month warranty, I have another 25 days to get it.


Through Sony? How does one go about doing that? I thought it came with 12 month one, am I wrong?


PSN store. Pretty sure it comes with a one year warranty.


Thank you. From my experience with electornics it is first month or so that ever had a problem, after that they seem to last for least 7-10 years.

vgchartz member's fail rate is like 3.5%

Thanks for the data, are we keep track of it? 0.4% is too low, but 3% looks a little above average.

 MORNING UPDATE :

 (59) VGC members with a PS4 and (2) casualties.


VGC members PS4 failure rate = 3.39%
-----------------------

(37) PS4 consoles for VGC member family & friend with (0) casualties.

VCG Friend & Family failure rate = 0%
------------------------

(96) total PS4 reported on VGC with (2) casualties.

Total failure rate = 2.08%

 * There is always the possibly of some overlap when speaking in regards to people on PSN friend lists. VGC member % are the most accurate of the ones I have listed.

Nothing is accidental....

 



I'm not really here!

Sorry to hear it bro! Mine has been working great! My only slight complaint for the ps4 would be for the battery life of the ds4. Seems to be about a third if what the ds3 is...



AceRock owns one PS3, one PS Vita, and one PS4.

It is always something with consoles, RROD/YLOD/WiiU and now this :s;. It would not bother me that much because all consoles die, at the end of the PS one era I was one of those guys who put it upside down so it would read discs, my PS2 was not reading some of my older games and when I tried to repair it, it only played my older games X_X. Sad thing is that all this failures are coming so early;

You think people forgot about the PSN hacking?


Obviously. Otherwise people wouldn't still be handing over credit card information to pay for PSN+ just to play games online.

I removed my credit card info from PSN  and just use PSN cards that I buy from the store.  I'm able to buy them at 15% off, so it saves me money anyway.  I tend to not keep credit cards on file with anyone.



Stop hating and start playing.

sorry to hear that.

I won't be getting mine until March. I'm hoping those that are having difficulties and need replacements/refurbishments don't have the luck I did with ps3 this generation (had to send it in 3 times


Mark my words, if this thing is as spread as it seems, Sony Playstation will not survive, they cannot take a blow like that, even Andrew White said, "if the PS4 fails, it is over, we need to make this one right".

Losing 1 or 2 million launch consoles will destroy Sony

Loosing 1 million launch cosoles would make it a 100% failure rate. The amount of DOAs PS4 arent that much, perspective ppl thats important.  1 million consoles sold if the failure rate is 5% wich is well withim the aceptable for eletronics release were talking about 50k broken PS4s, youre gona be hearing alot of reports about it, but can anyone say for a fact they heard more than even 1k  reports of dead PS4s. Bens PS4 was obviously broken out of the box he just got lucky it worked for a bit (or unlucky since he got into KZ and now cant finish it, wouldve been better if it had never worked I guess).

And the whole "the failure rate keeps rising" thing is obvious, thats how failure rates work, they never go down since consoles that broke dont become unbroken you can only add more broken ones to the count.
