IGN's system is not broken.

All the lems need is Ryse to score a 9/10 and it is game over. (Forza is a lock at 9/10)

Yup, it happened during a live stream earlier.

I know its epidemic proportions right now! I'm still getting mine tomorrow night though :D Do you think the Xbone will experience any problems like these?

That's not everywhere. Lems, keep trying.. Keep the dream alive lol. The inevitable will still happen

Sony has this gen in the bag.

Sure seems like a lot when the same thread is repeated over and over.

And I love how people think the system "wobble" is even worth mentioning.

Only time will tell, but as of right now, SOny has nothing in the bag, just alot of tech issues, a few good indie games, and some medicore exclusive games

IGN's system is not broken.

"An IGN retail PS4 stopped outputting through the HDMI after the user began downloading Netflix."

badly writen you can say? still don't excuse the ystem breaking

kotaku unit did break through

"Kotaku's first retail system also reportedly had a faulty HDMI jack that would not output a signal."

Hope everything goes smooth 4 ya.

Who knows, i haven't heard/ seen any reports about faulty x1s, but you never know!

is that the live ign stream? i was watching it and it just cut off on me out of no where and usually ign will put the full video up afterwards but can't find it

We will find out Friday.

The only people with PS4s right now are Taco Bell munchers and the media. (And the retail store kiosks locked up in plastic air-tight cases)

Friday is when MILLIONS of people will have PS4s running.

FRIDAY is when we'll know.

Not everywhere as the console hasn't been officially released yet. The console will officially release on Friday, so we will see what happens.

This guy? http://www.twitch.tv/hi11zones cuz he's still at it.... no joy thus far.

#21 Edited by CloudStrife213 (423 posts) -

@handssss:

Nope. The OP of the thread is different from the guy from twitch. And it appears that the guy from twitch broke it again after fixing it, http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=715057&page=76

Hi11Zones(twitch guy) is not the OP of the thread. The OP of the thread is Dylx, so there are two different guys having the same issues.

Yeah like seriously. These are just the Taco Bell schleps that are bombing out right now.

Everything in life is a ratio. 1:10 girls are lesbians, 2:3 men snore, 7:10 people are right handed, 9:10 PS4's will fail or be DOA Friday.

With 20,000 PS4s out, it's a good thing Lems are creating a thread for the five or six PS4s that crashed. It would suck if we didn't have a thread for each and every reported failure.

If Ryse got a 9 SW would see a epic day of biblical proportions. MS would literally be shitting down Sony's throat. No chance in hell it gets a 9, but if it did Cows would be on suicide watch.

Sony learned about free advertising from MS last gen.

Not particularly, been watching PS4 gameplay on Twitch tonight and it looks sweet! What have you been doing tonight? Playing all of no games, I see. It's hard to imagine with that awesome 2013 360 lineup you guys had..

Oh wait.

That fell about 30 yards short of making any scene.

This is one of the reasons I'm waiting. Buy a console at launch at your own risk.

no its not

I know. I was using the Borg and Beck method of review score calculation. Accurate....................to a degree.

#41 Posted by PernicioEnigma (5271 posts) -

To me it seems so illogical to buy a next gen console at launch. There are no worthwhile games out to justify buying the console at its most expensive price point, then there's the increased likelihood of faulty hardware/software. It's simply not worth it.

No forza doesn't have enough changes to be a 9, it will get an 8 and Ryse might get a 7.5 or an 8.

tidbits from the article

EDIT1: Sooo I can't get the PS4 to work... Definitely feels like I got shipped a broken version... I am investigating the issue :(

EDIT2: Sony is refusing support since console hasn't launched.

EDIT3: Making a new YouTube video explaining my struggle. if you offered a sugggestion and I haven't responded, this video will explain why.

EDIT4: http://www.twitch.tv/arogon1416/b/479416740 #thestruggleisreal

EDIT5: Engaging ultimate support request mode. At 3:45 I'll start calling Sony again and try to get this shit fixed. I'll be livestreaming it?? Idk I'm honestly pissed/bored at this point. Hopefully things will work out for me.

EDIT6: Right away they told me consoles not released, please call back Friday...
