There's been numerous reports of PS4 locking up, freezing from many different outlets. Sony should really address this issue before it gets out of control.

Spare me. The first wave will have a few issues with anything new.

#16 Edited by GravityX (679 posts) -

I think it's only been one time at GameStop, one time a Target, one time at Eurogamer Expo, one time at Gamekyo 2013, one time in Brazil Game Show, one time at the Toyko Game Show.

So not too many times.

#17 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

Lem desperation continuation. Still posting the same tired old video from YouTube

#18 Edited by spike6958 (4681 posts) -

So a single unit in a GameStop that's left on for 8+ hours a day, getting very hot and is trapped in a plastic container where no cool air can get to it, counts as "numerous reports across the nation" now?

#19 Edited by Promised_Trini (3574 posts) -

This is getting old now. How many time's are we going to see the same video.

#20 Posted by Szminsky (1433 posts) -

"As we always say when we showcase this kind of errors, it should not be taken as a sign that the console has any kind of widespread problems. Demo stations run in rough operational conditions that don’t really reflect what would happen in a normal household, and the crashing software is not the final game. Occasional problems of this kind are pretty normal."

"

First of all, demo units operate under stress for prolonged periods. We’re talking about time frames that go from early in the morning to late in the evening every day, and that by itself puts a strain on the components. But you have to add to that the fact that they’re moved very often, either from one event to another or from the storage area to the demo station, and when you move a console that often, all sorts of bad things can happen.

Finally, and this is the case of the picture showcased above, consoles need air to live. It may sound cheesy, but it’s true. Like any computer they generate a lot of heat that requires good ventilation to be dissipated.

Demo stations and cabinets are often designed with a really horrible airflow. In the picture above there’s basically no ventilation. The only holes in the Plexiglas are small and placed at the bottom, where they’re partly obstructed by the cables. Since hot air tends to travel towards the top of a container, and not towards the bottom, almost all the heat generated from the console is retained inside the case, with potential disastrous results. Those are really some of the worst operational conditions for a console, but for some reason demo stations keep being designed like that."

This is one good thing about the US getting the console first. We get to see if the system has any issues before it's released elsewhere :P

#25 Edited by Truth_Hurts_U (9075 posts) -

As I said. The system is fine. There is a bug is the OS or in the demo's.

It's just a matter of time before the update is out to fix it. A simple reboot is all it takes.

This could be a major issue if even 30% of owners has problems, a shit storm could be brewing.

#29 Posted by 3rdbass (3292 posts) -

It happened to me while playing knack at GameStop. Just got stuck in a loop. No problems with the ds4 being recognized. I still have ps4 pre-ordered and not worried about issues with demo units. Sony should have tested them out better.

Go ahead and count yesterday and today at my best buy. I took video too but don't know if I want my face all over the interwebs..

#35 Edited by lamprey263 (22782 posts) -

just like the other story, the PS4 is gonna generate a lot of heat and there it is trapped under lock in a tiny plastic box with no ventilation

gamers shouldn't be worried but it is a problem with Sony product ambassadors trying to show off the console and instead giving the consumers at large the wrong impression, and that's something that shouldn't be happening

It took like almost 3 mins just to get into the Knack demo when I tried it. Not sure why it's so slow loading a game.

#40 Edited by Animal-Mother (26391 posts) -

I went to my local target and the Xbox one wasn't even plugged in guys!!!!!!!!!!!! It's KRAZYYYYYYYYYYYY. Is this the power of the cloud MS and lemmings have talked so fondly about? I don't even need to plug in my system. ! No way it can overheat if it's not even plugged in!

#42 Posted by YD_11 (1620 posts) -

It was hilarious today when i went back to check to see if the ps4 kiosk was still having its issues. One of the best buy clerks came up to me and was practically jumping with excitement about the system. He was showing me some stuff on the ps4 and it bricked.. i couldn't help but laugh a little. He did say it's been repeatedly happening since they got the kiosk set up and blamed whoever set it up that the cables weren't connected right or something. That must be the problem across the country then.. poor connecting of the cables by all the employees!

#43 Edited by jimmypsn (4425 posts) -

Someone said those are fake PS4s in those cases. So its not that. PS4 just has overheating issues.

Went to a gamestop N played knack. Just slow loading time and game was ok. Bout a 7. Controller I was expecting more, doesnt compare to xbox one controller.

#46 Edited by XBOunity (2981 posts) -

Cows. Fans, rubber feet, and vinyl tape to cover the lightbar that cant be turned off on the controller and your set. No wonder its a 100 dollar less lol

#47 Edited by BeardMaster (1580 posts) -

As much as I hate to side with cows these days, lockups dont really mean much of anything. Especially since these kiosks are probably running modified software from the normal console. But lockups occur on any console, and buggy software can always be patched.

If hardware failures start becoming common, that could be an issue.
