You don't need no proof....All theses reports can't be lies

This would be fuked up if a lot of consoles are like this and ppl have to wait another 4-5 days to get a replacement system

Yeah but if you read the other pages he states that he can't even get his PS4 to boot up....

I'm not following the link. I'm at this forum. Apparently whoever wrote that above quote sucks at grammar. Perhaps he should add a noun.

the title of the post on gaf literally says "My PS4 seems broken"

Er has it escaped your notice that I'm on GameSpot not Gaf?

so what? you should have read the source before commenting then

From what I gathered on GAF it's legit and he proved it ebfore (I can't find links myself)

If it wasn't legit GAF would tear him apart

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.....

I may have been over dramatic to say buy a warranty, but after this I'm buying one.

Oh jesus, really?! Its his whole damn console that will not work, dumbass! Cows. swear!

Not a cow.....and I explained why I read it the way I did. It was poorly written. Dumb ass MS fan boy.....

Poorly written, yet the fucking TOPIC TITLE clearly says the console broke and multiple posts afterwards explain that the console is dead, including the first page of this very thread - even after being prompted to go back and read again, you're gonna blame the guy's writing skills?

Come on bro.

Come on Ninja......it's GS.....it's hard to take titles seriously you know that. I just went by the quote. Which was poorly written. Are we going to argue this all day? I am a little tired.....was up early but I am drinking some coffee if this is the dance you want to do. Give me some time to recharge and we can needlessly argue....or we could just say the dude sucks at grammar and leave it at that.

Are you an MS fan or something?

#107 Posted by silversix_ (16604 posts) -

At this point i don't see why would anyone buy a ps4. One console broke, KZ got a 7, BF4 isn't even Full HD, Indie titles outscoring 1st party... Cancel till its possible.

since this is system wars that translates to 100% of all ps4s are defective.

We'll all just check in with the X1 support page every day after launch,report any problems here because golly, they must effect everyone and show MS's quality :D

Why should I? Quotes were put in this thread. But then I forgot SW is all about whining about a console one doesn't want. There will always be a percentage of product that fails. Hence recalls exist.

Can't act like an adult XD

Instead of trying to have a logical discussion you get people who act like this. XD

People who don't wanna have a serious discussion about a hobby they're serious about.

This is what gaming has come to. People on forums who can't even think seriously for one minute.

Ah Ninja being Ninja. I did read the thread I posted in. I didn't read the link. Big difference. I explained exactly why I came to that conclusion genius several times. You're too busy enlarging your e-peen to accept that. I'm also not the only one that came to that conclusion...so the problem must be in the presentation.

But far be it for me to continue arguing with you here...I did read the many threads you created back when ATM existed about wanting to report users that were mean to you in SW.

@Desmonic said:

Slightly off-topic... the dude says he didn't buy a "warranty" with the console, but that he now considers buying one (at least that's what i can gather from most of his poorly written posts). I'm assuming he is either in the US or CA, since that's where the consoles should start being available right now.

My question: is it normal for new eletronic products to not come with a legal warranty? I'm asking since in the European Union companies are forced to at the very least one year of legal warranty + 1 or 2 years depending on the specific countries legislation. In mine (Portugal) they are forced to 2 years of warranty if they want to sell anything here. The dude makes it sound like it's "normal" for products not to come with a legal warranty there, so I'm just curious..

In the US most products come with one year parts and labor.

You buy warranties on other products for up to 2-3 years so that when the product breaks you can exchange it at the store you bought it from for a better model for a small fee

It is, which is surprising. I expected Knack and Killzone to flop. Never saw one damn thing worth noting except for KZ's graphics. But the system reviews, and now these wobble issues, and the 3 reports of the system dying on people are very surprising. Hopefully the broken systems are just isolated cases.

You know I've told you several times how I came to the conclusion I did. But you just have to keep bitching and moaning. Maybe you should admit you're wrong to prolong this? Do you really think you're proving a point here? It's redundant. You seemed much better of a user in OT....but damn.....I've reversed my opinion of you.

Every product will have a percentage that fails. It matters how long the failure rate continues and the percentage affected. At this stage it's too early to say anything.

Even cars have recalls....

Ah Ninja being Ninja. I did read the thread I posted in. I didn't read the link. Big difference.

Clearly this is bullshit because if you scroll down just ONE INCH on the FIRST PAGE of THIS THREAD there is a post including quotes from the GAF thread in plain simple English explaining clearly and decisively how the problem is most definitely the console, not the controller. Even after being urged to go read before posting, you did not bother to scroll down ONE INCH on the FIRST PAGE of THIS THREAD, despite claiming to have read it.


Evidently my dear Watson, LJ still suffers from the intense mental illness wherein he will literally never concede to being wrong about anything.

We can only offer our sympathies.

You are more of a pedantic bore than thegerg is on his best day. Good bye.

You already said you didn't read the source, you just read the quote posted by a different user without actually verifying the source. And you came to an incorrect conclusion, and when someone told you to "Learn2reading" because you obviously hadn't read the source, you then criticized their reading abilities "You should try that...."

And you honestly shouldn't criticize anyone on being a pedantic bore, and you need to learn to admit when you're wrong

You know I've told you several times how I came to the conclusion I did. But you just have to keep bitching and moaning. Maybe you should admit you're wrong to prolong this? Do you really think you're proving a point here? It's redundant. You seemed much better of a user in OT....but damn.....I've reversed my opinion of you.

Oh no, you reversed your opinion of me! whatever will I do. Considering how you act here and on OT, your opinion is not worth much to anyone

Here's the problem, you came to an incorrect conclusion because you didn't read the damn source, and when you were called out on it, rather than admitting you were wrong, you acted like a complete jackass.

Slightly off-topic... the dude says he didn't buy a "warranty" with the console, but that he now considers buying one (at least that's what i can gather from most of his poorly written posts). I'm assuming he is either in the US or CA, since that's where the consoles should start being available right now.

My question: is it normal for new eletronic products to not come with a legal warranty? I'm asking since in the European Union companies are forced to at the very least one year of legal warranty + 1 or 2 years depending on the specific countries legislation. In mine (Portugal) they are forced to 2 years of warranty if they want to sell anything here. The dude makes it sound like it's "normal" for products not to come with a legal warranty there, so I'm just curious..

In the US most products come with one year parts and labor.

You buy warranties on other products for up to 2-3 years so that when the product breaks you can exchange it at the store you bought it from for a better model for a small fee

Hmm.. I see. We have something similar here, which are the warranty extensions which are also store specific, but they don't require you to any additional fees if it needs replacement during that time. Of course it could just be included in the price of the extension since most of them can vary from 20€ to 200€ depending on the time of extension, type of product, size and the store/chain itself.

Either way, for 2 years you are legally covered. They have to fix it/replace it for free (you do pay for transport if required though). Obviously it needs to be within a very specific set of conditions (like not caused by the user among other) but those are somewhat easy to overcome with some patience (and a silver tongue :P )

Thanks for the clarification though :)

No problem. They seem very similar either way. With the difference being one year here and two years pending on where you are there.

Oh I did. I said why I came to that conclusion.....but that isn't good enough for you two. I guess mommy didn't give you any attention so it's important to prove you are right on the internet.

But no wait....even that isn't good enough for you. You two have to continue the conversation long after it should be over. Which would be funny....if it wasn't so damn sad.

Hahaha, not it isn't good enough you unstoppable jackass, because you didn't do that at all. You absolved yourself of all blame and said it was the OP's fault, even after making your snide little remarks about me reading, then you claimed you read the thread but not the source when you couldn't have read the thread at all because the slightest flick of the scroll wheel on the very first page explains in-depth what the problem is and how it is definitely not just the controller.

As per usual you have made a complete twat of yourself and it's been nothing short of hilarious, if not a little routine.
