Launch hardware is always god-awful. I cant see Sony having RROD-type problems.

Jaguar and Xbox, and NG, and NGP, and Lynx, and 7800, and CV, and Vectrex, and Nuon, and The flashback consoles, and the Chitendo Vii, and Gameking portables, Zone 40, Zone 60, Zone 3d, Wirelessair60, and 6 others I can't think of at the moment were all fine at launch. Granted 4-5 of them has bad software launches but that is not what this is about.

Oh I did. I said why I came to that conclusion.....but that isn't good enough for you two.

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.

Learn2Read....I didn't blame the OP. I blamed the idiot who was quoted who owned the PS4.

Holy hell...lol.

Anyways it's to be somewhat expected and I'm sure the 720 will have it's share of launch duds.

Hey you insufferable jackass.....don't be such a hypocrite. You were wrong....now admit it.

What a great thread.

Seems to be a catastrophic hardware failure, the GAFer has updated his OP:

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=89688681&postcount=1

Unit to be returned to base for service / replacement.

Get those extended warranties ready! and SCEA on speed dial!

**UPDATE**

Went thru a number of "fixes" with customer service and none of them worked. They are shipping me a box to get the unit serviced.

Safe Mode on the console no longer works.

For sh*ts and giggles, swapped the hard drive for a fresh one, that also didn't work

But I'm glad they exist as they be viewed as test dummies.

Quoted for Truth, time to spread this "truth" across the internets...

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

True that.

Neogaf and kotaku are crap blogging sites that pretend to be filled with "insider information." They're really just a bunch of neckbeards. Ignore it.

Launch unit, Expected really, doesn't reflect the future reliability of the hardware, people that make them probably hadn't hit there stride when they made that one.

OP doesn't mean OP of this thread. Thats just silly. OP just means original poster. In this instance, OP referred to the OP of the gaf thread. The person who you quoted and then blamed. So when I said you blamed the OP, clearly I was referring to that individual. This is just obvious.

Your attempts at trolling are way too obvious. They come off as mentally deranged. 2/10 is the best I can give you in this instance.


#175 Edited by tryagainlater (7445 posts) -

Aaaand this is why you don't buy launch consoles.It's not like either console has anything exciting to play.

#176 Posted by Ninja-Hippo (23433 posts) -

Oh hey LJ.... you know how you say you didn't go to GAF. Then where did you get that quote from buddy? And before you say you got it from this thread, be careful - the same post which has that quote in it clearly explains that it's not the controller but the console itself in the same post. Cant blame the quote there can you? The very post it appears in explains that it's not the controller in simple english.


Seems like you're pretty fucked there buddy.

Who cares about the broken PS4, LJ is gettin destroyed up in here...

Lol I wouldn´t put much hope in xbox720 either XD PS4 flopped, x1 will follow. Steambox, in contrast, will support some 300 games at launch, including latest multiplats, and will include strategies, the genre that is not present on neither next gen console. I am pretty sure that x1, instead, will become a next gen wiiu XD

I believe 4 people total so far, 3 of which taco bell winners. It gets difficult to keep track though when people constantly cross link each other, making it look like many more cases.

Thank man, you're a cool guy too. I like the way you haven't sided with any console or system.

Oh yeah. I suggested EVE Online on purpose for lols. You were complaining about PC gaming being boring so I thought to myself

"Hmmm, what's a pretty boring PC-only game?"

Kotaku's pretty close in quality to that of tacobell, so maybe that's the case.
