In case you have not been reading around PS4 owners have had run ins with a lot of technical issues and failures. It's practically being shredded on Amazon. Many have reported their system showed up with damaged packaging and D.O.A. The thing would not even show up on the TV. The biggest probelm is the RLOD and BPLOD. Other people have reported a glitchy UI, games crashing, disc read errors, PSN trouble and disc eject errors too. http://www.geek.com/games/bricked-ps4-reports-are-very-real-n... This is not good if people can't get replacement units by February. That basically means the system you bought for your kid is useless and 400+ dollars down the drain

System's have issues at launch. Really this will not slow PS4 sales any. Remember the RROD? Didn't stop people from buying the 360.

Well, Nintendo critics looked at 0.01% of Wii U console failures(due mainly to unplugging during the update) as a bad sign, and now it's arguably worse in regards to the PS4(some won't even turn on). To be fair, nothing will probably be as bad as RROD was, ever again.

Not to mention everyone gave Nintendo crap about the day one update, and now PS4 has followed suit as well, although the update it alot less. I read a couple of people couldn't get their PS4 systems online until the next day. When the Wii U lauched, the Nintendo servers were up and ready to go. The update was just larger, but depending on the situation, the time it took to update didn't even matter.

Why is this thread in the Wii U section of this forum?

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Erm...what does this have to do with Wii U? And it's natural that some of the first batch of consoles have issues.

It's unfortunate that so many people are experiencing this problem. Hopefully, it will all be resolved and won't be too much of a setback for the PS4. On the other hand, I'm intrigued to see the effect this will have on Wii U and Xbox One sales.

Do we really need to ask the same question so many times?

The poster probably thought it would be a "nice" thing to share with his fellow WiiUans or probably doesn't know how the forums work.

It's nice to share information. I don't think he is playing the fan boy card.

I assume he thinks it is nice because it will somehow be good for Wii U sales. I highly doubt that will be the case though.

All this talk of PSN shutting down, PS4's HDMI failing, overheating and "unimpressive launch line-up" isn't going to help Sony out... It may help the Wii U a bit, but likely will help the XBone more.
Of course "WITH OVER 1 MILLION SOLD", it's obviously good, right...?

How many people are actually have this problem, though? It sounds more like a very small fraction of the userbase to me.

I believe that the PS4 in the first console to sell 1,000,000 in 24Hrs so a normal failure for launch consoles will result on more total failures for PS4 just because it sold so many consoles on day one. We still have no idea what the failure rate so I wouldn't panic yet as the reported failure don't actually mean anything special right now.

It's stopped people from buying another MS system, 8BitSamurai included.

Also, I'm gonna go with this until we know exactly how serious of a problem this is.
