Sony On Malfunctioning PS4s: It’s Nothing Serious, Was Expected With New Product Launch

Sony On Malfunctioning PS4s: It’s Nothing Serious, Was Expected With New Product Launch

Sony has great news for gamers on the matter of PS4 units that are malfunctioning. The company has issued a statement saying that faulty unites were expected, and they represent only .04 percent. Find statement is immediately below.

A handful of people have reported issues with their PlayStation 4 systems. This is within our expectations for a new product introduction, and the vast majority of PS4 feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We are closely monitoring for additional reports, but we think these are isolated incidents and are on track for a great launch.

There have been several problems reported, which leads us to believe there isn’t a singular problem that could impact a broader percentage of systems. The number of affected systems represents less than .04% of shipped units to date, which is within our expectations for a new product introduction.

No need to panic, then. And that’s a great thing. PS4 launches in a few hours in the U.S. Sony’s going all out on Spike TV tonight, where a host of BIG announcements will be made. We’re hearing all sorts of things, and we’ll be there to cover it live, via a livestream link in this thread.

    While the news of faulty consoles is troubling…we have to remember that in this Internet Age, bad new is what people post. And a small thing can become a big thing due to trolls and PS haters. As an early adopter, a calculated risk is always involved with new hardware. Every electronic device on the planet will have some failure rate…it happens. I accepted the risk with my PS2, 360,PS3, PSP, and Vita. I’m still pumped to pick up my PS4 and nothing…I repeat NOTHING will dampen my enthusiasm for this!!!
