With all of the reports of bricked PS4's and possible hardware issues I'm just curious as to how everyone's PS4 is doing so far? I know the PSN is having some temporary problem so this is for anyone who is able to connect.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
Played for a bit last night and a bit this morning before work. No major issues.
Only issue I had was that I couldn't sign-in to PSN at 1AM EST, but I'm not surprised by that. It will likely take a couple days for the network to fully regain stability but I was able to get signed in this morning and redeem the 30-day PS+ voucher and get some other things setup. Here's hoping the good vibes continue for everyone's PS4s.
Well fingers crossed everything seems great.
Finally set my ps4 up and no issues as of yet.
I managed to get into psn this morning after about 2 attempts.
Very pleased with my console so far. Killzone looks amazing.
I really don't know what people were saying about how the system wobbles. My console doesn't move at all.
Big surprise, none of the negative rumors about it are true. Beautiful, fast, and the controller is the sweetest ever!
Be on the look out for troll/fake PS4 users claiming hardware issues! I'm still waiting on mine....hopefully it will be here before I go to work.
My hdmi display stopped working after i updated it. Maybe had it on for 30 minutes total... Dont know how to say this without sounding like a troll, its just... True. I posted my initial and updated review on amazon detailing the problem under the killzone launch bundle ps4 for verification. I am so bummed out right now... Getting on the horn with sony.
The reports have said they are isolated cases so having most work is not surprising. It doesn't matter what electronics/computer device you're talking about, there will always be some defective issues, It's just that reports get blown out of shape when people fear a massive problem, which is not even remotely the case with the few reported.
Mine locked up twice during the warframe install. First time i got pissed off and couldn't figure out how to turn it off and pulled the plug. Second time i researched it and found out about safe mode. I deleted warframe and then installed it again. Now its playing fine. Other then that, so far so good. The warframe issue seems to be happening to other people also.
So far, so good for me. The update went flawless. I downloaded and played Contrast, Resogun, and Warframe. I also played Knack and Battlefield and have had no issues. I saw my buddy broadcast, tried remote play on my Vita, and everything has worked great. I've easily put 8 hours into the PS4 with no issues.
This has been a great launch so far!
Mine was bricked right out of the box. I am one of the unfortunate Amazon pre-order customers. Sony tech support said nearly all of their calls have gone back to Amazon. Not sure what the issue is with the shipment they received, but they obviously have a MUCH higher failure rate than systems coming from other stores.
It was a total pain getting in touch with a human....online chat would boot you out after five minutes of waiting. Spent over two hours on the phone before getting to talk to someone. What really irks me is that they are going to have us send our units in and repair them. Look, if this was a month or 6 months into the system and it had worked previously, I'd be fine with getting them to fix it. But, I got a lemon. It didn't work from the get go. I don't want it fixed. I want another NEW PS4 shipped to me and frankly, they should overnight it. As you can tell, I'm a wee bit bitter over all of this. Instead, I get to wait a few weeks to get my refurbished unit even though I was never able to use the previous unit once. Grrr
We've played our 2 PS4s about 8 hours today. They've worked great. No noise at all whatsoever. Online gaming has been great all day as well.
I am in love with the new controllers. They are great. I love how the system is turned on and the eject buttons don't even look like buttons. There in the line in the front of the console. Nice how the console charges while off also. The charging cables have changed a bit to be the same as my cell phone and digital camera. It really reminds me of the size of the PS2. the shiney black side slides off with ease to upgrade the HDD. I think I'll upgrade both of mine to 2TB in a month or 2. I hope they come out with themes for it soon. I loved making themes for my PS3s.
I haven't really had any issues with the console, my issues have all been with the network.
I do have to echo the concern of overheating though. This thing is very hot in my tv cabinet, much hotter than I think even the 360 was when my first 2 xboxes got fried. I don't have room to stand it up just yet, so I can only hope this thing won't burn itself out.
@KHAndAnime: I know first thing I did was test the wobble lol. No wobble on my end as well. Dont try telling that to anyone in SW though lol...my ps4 has been on all day though since 1230am central...no problem whatsoever besides once even after it said my data auto saved on ghost I went to resume and my data was gone but I could mission select that same level? Idk not a big deal and probally just the game. My clan of 200+ has reported no issues on our website or on LINE besides the unfortunate ones who couldnt find/afford one.
Girlfriend here with a broken hearted man... My BF finally gave up. Everything we tried to do took forever. It was continuously updating and downloading (freezing but not really freezing)...The NBA2K14 will not save your personalized character. When you back out of anything, everything you did is gone...He says he is just going to get his money back...Is it true about the preordered Amazon shipment? That was what his was.....
So far mine has been great, I'd say I put about 6 hours into finishing COD Ghosts SP last night, spent a couple hours checking everything out, and buy the way, when PSN is up, it's super fast. Just started AC4 a couple hours ago, and everything has been great, the games run super smooth, and the DS4 is the best controller I've ever used.
As for heat, it really doesn't seem to be running that hot, I measured the temp with a type k thermometer probe at the hottest part of the exhaust and while playing AC4 the max temp I got was 122 degrees F / 50 degrees C, and just as a comparison I measured the temp from the laptop I'm using now and while it's under load it;s running at 142 degrees F / 61.1111 degrees C, so I think it's running pretty cool.
Also, I'm in love with the ability to stop playing and go to an app or PSN or just change some settings then instantly get right back into gaming, plus I didn't think I would care for watching other people streaming their gameplay, but I actually enjoyed watching them, and it's a great way to check out realtime gameplay from a game you're interested in.
So far my experience has been great, I really like it so much that I'm kind of dreading buying GT6 for PS3, I think I might just wait and see if a PS4 version will come out. The one thing that annoyed me a little was last night I laid down in bed to finish up COD and I had a white blanket over my legs, and when I turned the lights out the blanket glowed blue, so I had to put some electrical tape over the light in the DS4, but that's no big deal.
Oh yeah... I almost forgot, as KHAndAnime said above, "the wobble issue is fake."
Got mine at 10am this morning when gamestop opened and probably had it all setup in less than 30 minutes. I did have about an hour of updates, configuring account, etc to do but it was pretty painless. I think a lot of people were just going nuts trying to get into gaming without properly taking the time to set things up correctly. I had no issues with my setup, this by far is the best console I've ever owned.
My PS4 has been working fine, so far so good anyway.
Last night after launch PSN was down, but so far that's about the only problem I've had. That, and trying to get used to the new UI. That'll just take a bit of time I guess.
Still haven't had enough time to dig into everything yet though.
I got my ps4 at launch from amazon. I was so excited, connected it to my TV, turned it on, then there it was. the blue pulse of death. all I could say was no not mine. didn't bother calling Sony so they could send me a reconditioned one. called amazon for a refund. what sucks is I bought 3 games and nothing to play them on. saying im disappointed is an understatement.
It's holding up great, it will wobble if u press on left corner but that's moot
Looking at how the rubber feet were placed on the device, I am starting to think having the left side under the disc drive not physically connected to the surface might have actually been the design so that any vibrations through the case on the shiny part don't get reverberated back through the rest of the system. Strange but possible I think.
Anyway, yesterday I played through the Ghosts campaign and about 2 hours of online multiplayer plus some Resogun yesterday morning. PS4 is running like a champ. I'm testing Blu-Ray playback now and it looks awesome.
I brought a new entertainment cabinet a few months back, before this I had never had a problem with my PS3. It started turning its self off, discovered it was getting hot. Took the back off the cabinet, haven’t had any problems since. Hope this is a help. Looking forward to getting my PS4 at launch this side of the world.
