i have never bought a console at launch, and I don't know why you even need to. Wait a month, wait 3 months. It's not like they're going to disappear forever. This is why they used to launch in August/September.

Does nobody who got a Wii U at launch remember the good two hours of waiting for updates? Then updates for those updates? System crashes moving through menus, horrendous load times? No?

Sony Fanboys.... 1mill units? Really? This is what you're going for? Way too early to be calling this generation "won" based on that I think. Console launches are typically supply constrained and even the Wii U hit 1mill within the first couple of weeks. At most the 1mill number, if accurate for sales, just means that they've got their act together with supply more than other companies have in the past. Which given the problems of the PS3's launch shouldn't be surprising at all.

No one is saying this generation is won stop trying to pick fights with people on this thread just because we are discussing some good news about the PS4 and gaming in general.

@MadAussieBloke Man, you win the best post of the thread every time. That animation was priceless.
Oh, and the PS4 has 600 1 star reviews out of 2000 in Amazon complaining about blue pulse of death. That's 30%.

You fail to point out that around 1400 out of 2200 reviews are 5 star rated thats around 64% there always two sides.
Edit: Plus Amazon is a terrible place to gauge an opinion of a product.

Dude, I was just saying take the "1mill on day 1" with a grain of salt. Day one sales does not automatically translate into long term success and it doesn't mean that the system is some sort of holy grail of gaming. It has its problems like any system and most consoles do sell out at launch. The gaming industry moves quick, todays good news story can be tomorrows disaster and visa versa

Also if you read the first bit of that same post you'd notice that I was also telling the Wii U fanboys in the thread to chill. The Wii U has had its fair share of problems also. The launch of the Wii U was hardly roses and I'm sure the launch of the XBOne will be equally as bad. So just chill mkay?

You don't even need to have purchased a PS4 from Amazon to write a review of it. You are crazy if you believe they are all real reviews, and not Microsoft fanboys making stuff up. Check out Xbox One reviews on there once its released and you will see the same pattern, or worse.

Take this into consideration, though... Some people couldn't even access Sony's servers the first 2 hours that they had their PS4(waiting for the next day to be able to update the 300mb). Wii U's system update would already be complete for the average U.S. citizen by then, but this is only in regards to the launch day woes.

I keep seeing you refer to people not being able to access the ps network for the update, day one. Well its because a million people were trying to access playstation's north american servers along with who knows how many ps3's also accessing the servers during the same day Nov 15th. the wii u system update was much easier on the servers because the wii (7th gen) had little to no online footprint, and the wii u sold 475k in north america during the 1st week (so no 24hr period on nintendo's north american servers were that stressed)

sorry, this post is very, very out of context. everyone should know that the vast, overwhelming majority of people who are content with their purchases from online retailers DONT go back and rate or comment because they're too busy enjoying their products. The majority who go back and comment or rate are less than satisfied consumers. In other words, 600 one star reviews out of 2,000 any star reviews. do we believe that amazon only sold 2,000 ps4's?

i just want to say that a thread title like this invites fanboy feuds. but as far as payback. there hasnt been much in this thread that a ps fanboy should be upset over. ok, there are some problems with the ps4. but it will be fixed with patches and subsequent batches of ps4's will be fixed before shipment. so the .4% will continually and consistently drop. plus, everybody has warrantees so nobody's out any money. But yes, it sucks if you have a ps4 and cant play it, but sunnier days are still ahead, its not Armageddon.

When you have a product with so many 1 stars it is abnormal and usually indicates a big problem.

You can actually see whether the review is "real" since it says "Amazon verified purchase" on the review. Most of them had that indication so yes they are legit.

I wouldn't say most it seem pretty evenly split between verified and non-verified, I didn't check all 60 something pages cause honestly I really don't care that much.

Everyone that sticks up for Sony on this site is considered a Sony fanboy.

Either you hate them unconditionally for unlogical reasons, or you're completely blinded by Sony love. There is no in between because that would mean there are rational people on this site that like Sony more. And that concept itself is irrational to Nintendo fans.

what disaster? there is no disaster. a .4% failure rate is bad, its horrible, but its more a problem than a disaster. like if you cut your finger, your not going to cut your whole hand off. put a band-aid on and keep it moving. by the end of Dec there will still be 3M to 3.5M (minimum) ps4's sold.

*illogical.

You made a good point up until you decided to also generalise a fanbase yourself, thus rendering your complaint moot. Unless this was intentional, in which case never mind. :P

Is the failure rate small? Yes.
Twitter and Amazon crapstorms are huge? Yes.

Well, it's more like 30% in Amazon. Probably somewhere in the middle.
