The poor guy just posted again on Sonygaf. No fix has worked. He has to send it in for service. His PS4 lasted 2 hours.

I guess Greatness will have to wait four to six weeks.

Don't you have to be verified to become a member of that other site and they're strict when it comes to posting bs stuff. This is not good for Sony. Also, that's the first time I saw that PS4 wobbling. I knew the controller felt cheap because I tried it out at BestBuy but I did not know the system itself is as cheap. Should have known by watching PS4 getting dismantled video, it showed how easily you could take it apart. Sony tried to cut cost, cost them.

WobbleStation, and already tales of glitches. Sony better hope they made a good console.

I actually had one of the only 36o slims that did not work and I posted it here but it turned out to be an isolated incident. Hopefully this will be too.

Man I really hope all this hardware news is bullshit or just rare. I would be super mad if mine broke.

I guess I'll know before long huh?

When you are prompted to read something, odds are you missed something the first time and should probably at least skim read before you embarrass yourself.

It's GAF numnuts.

And. It still doesn't provide proof.

It's the internet. And no need to be hostile.

Numnuts? You're offended by numnuts? For real? Are you wearing sneakers? Are your shoelaces tied together?

Cuz you're straight trippin' yo.

Asking for proof is all good if that's your bag, but I think it's a little tinfoil-hat-enthusiast in this case. It's GAF. You have to be invited and confirmed. People know you and your posting. It would have been shot down straight away if anyone had any reason to doubt him, yet nobody does. He's posted previously about how hyped he is and seems sincere.

In order for it to be BS he would have had to get invited to GAF, post well enough and non-fanboyish enough to get confirmed, keep posting positive playstation comments to build up a cover, make up a lie about winning a PS4 from taco bell weeks in advance, continue his cover until close to launch day of the PS4 only to then spring his trap and lie about the console working, using the exact same problem a few other unlucky people seem to be having.

Hence original response - not everyone is sad and lonely enough to actually do that. There is very little reason to doubt he's being legit. It's not like he's even made that big a deal out of it.

If only they could just google the problem, and fix it within 5 minutes.

But that's too hard. Much better to call up Sony, listen to 10 minutes of automated messages, convince the Sony rep to help you out, then drive down to the UPS store, and ship your package back to Sony, and wait a few weeks before playing games again.

#83 Posted by Truth_Hurts_U (9583 posts) -

I could care less about these people having issues. They aren't posting videos or pictures. So it means nothing.

2 days and I'll have my own PS4. If mine breaks I will be sure to post videos and pics. Then it will go back to Amazon for a refund.

But until then... I have no worries.

Falling into more school yard antics. LOL telling me i'm tripping. Obviously someone hasn't done much growing. And still can't act like an adult.

Also people can commit perjury under oath. Saying it's "NeoGaf" Doesn't make what everyone on that board says true. And yes they are unfortunately. It's the world we live in. If concrete proof was never accepted by any of us we'd still be in caves hunting animals to stay warm for winter.

His posting history was checked on SonyGAF. Pictures were posted. Updates were given.

But, it is just one console. 1

The light on the ps4 is solid when in use, mine flashes on and off. isn't the red or flashing red of over heating.

They have directed me to re download the 1.50 firmware onto usb.

For those criticizing, if this happens to you (hope it doesn't) refer to this thread for help, skip past the "jokes"...

4.) called to troubleshoot

5.) 10 mins into calling and being bounced around, i made a tread, hoping to help someone that it could happen to on friday. ( didn't expect ridicule)

6.) Still on hold.....
