wait 4 consoles broke so far?

Aye. 4 reported at least.

And 3 were Taco bell? dafuq

I really hope it isn't a widespread thing come the end of the week. That would be pretty shit

Correct. It's really weird. I'm hoping it was just the first batch that had faults, hence why 3 Taco Bell winners have had the problems, yet all of the gaming sites (Kotaku being the exception) have had no problems with PS4s, and in a lot of cases had streaming for hours on end with no issues.

If the majority of the faulty consoles are Taco Bell PS4s then it begs the question, did Taco Bell mishandle the consoles to cause the faults?.

considering the quality of food at taco bell (mmmmm taco bell), i guess we shouldn't be surprised at the quality of their PS4s

I wouldn't know about the Taco Bell food quality, there are literally only 3 in the whole of the UK (2 in the same area); so never been to one.

most taco bell ps4's are on ebay for 1,500

Taco Bell is like fake mexican food, it doesn't even resemble mexican food.

Well i'm not sure I would entirely qualify a Dorito Locos Taco as actual Mexican Food, but it will do in a pinch. Nor would i qualify the meat as "beef"

People should realize that electronics have an average failure rate of 15% within the first 3 years. With the ever growing presence of social media, these issues will be far more well known than previous generations.

Well it depends how many failures you have out of total consoles available. If you have 1 million consoles at a failure rate of even 10% that's still 100,000 failures

@Nonstop-Madness:

So just because it is launch gives a company the right to sell a defective/faulty product? There should always be rigorous testing before a product goes to the hand of a consumer.

A defective product is the fault of the company, saying that it is justifiable that there are defects in a product because it is known that there are large failure rates in any launch of electronics is not an excuse.

Saying that though, I would take most of these reports with a grain of salt, we have no idea how many PS4's may be defective, and the same could be said for the Xbox One.

A smart move is to wait until next year when all the possible issues are fixed.

I will be buying both and I'm going to see if there are issues with both consoles in the coming months.

I just love rumors. I remember several times hearing updates bricking PS3s. I had 4 PS3s that updated all the time and never had any problems. Infact no one I knew with PS3s ever had a bricked PS3. I heard about it a lot though online.

A defected product doesn't necessarily indicate that the engineering is faulty. Shit happens. It could be a isolated manufacturing error, faulty batch of components etc. Not to mention there is no proof that there are large failure rates. Recalls of electronic products do exist but they are extremely rare because every product has a failure rate. As I said previously, electronics typically have a 15% failure rate.

I absolutely agree with you that a smart move would be to wait until next year but not every consumer wants that. Neither does Sony or Microsoft or developers or publishers.

This is very disconcerting... I've been waiting a long time for this... if my PS4 ends up like this, I'm going to FREAK!!!!!

It's not sounding good... someone at IGN, a couple people on NeoGaf, Kotaku's system.... How many systems are out there... I mean what are the chances that multiple gaming news sources are going to end up with faulty PS4's if this really isn't a common thing?

I'm legitimately worried at this point... FML

What about the wobble? Do all PS4 wobble when you lay it horizontal? If so, that's confirms how bad the quality inside and out the PS4 are built.

The PS4 does not wobble when you lay it flat. When laying horizontally it has four contact points with the surface below it. The contact points are not along all the edges, so if you were to apply force to it for whatever dumb reason it will tilt.

So if you push on your machine randomly than more power to you.

I predict a recall or sony will have to extend the warranty and you have to send it in to replace or repair their systems. I don't think sony could afford that right now.

I decided to go with getting the PS4 at launch because I am very excited for the console, and if I didn't purchase it now I probably wouldn't be able to get one for the next couple years due to where my life is heading. Just the perfect time to get it.

If I run into technical errors or malfunctions of course I'll be upset, but there's the warranty that comes with the system to cover it. I'm not worried at all about it; had a PS3 die and a 360 die on me and I survived all that. Got plenty of other things to play. :P

Perfect time to get one, is when theres some AA-AAA exclusives to buy, all the small technical issues have been worked out, price drop maybe. Ill wait until that happens before buying mine.

Well I meant it is the perfect time for me to get it. :P Any time later and it may just not work for a few years; job hunting, moving across country and the like may be in store and I know there will be games I want to play at that time and I won't be so inclined to drop the money for the console then.

Besides, there are plenty of games I already want to play on the console, I could wait until the last year the console is out and still run into technical issues, and the price is in my range and I'll easily find value in it. I definitely understand your points though.

When your using almost slave labor to build the PS4 what do you expect. Heck if I was forced to build machines like the collage interns were I would break some of them myself.
