PS4 Hardware Issue: New Video Shows Overlapping of UI

GPU failure of some sort in PS4?

Posted By | On 14th, Nov. 2013 Under News

The PlayStation 4 is less than a day away from launch in North America, but issues have been popping up left and right. One user reported his console being bricked, requiring a removal of the HDD and re-insertion to fix it. Now another user has uploaded a video which shows the UI overlapping within the interface. Check it out above.

While it’s advised to check your HDMI cable, what’s seen in this video seemingly goes beyond that. A leaderboard-type of screen can be seen overlapping on a Trophy screen. Would that be possible if it were an HDMI problem? It may also be a GPU issue, with the user stating that within one hour of receiving the console from Taco Bell, the GPU has failed. This follows other complaints from those who have received their consoles as prizes but are facing issues.

Hopefully Sony can look into these issues sooner rather than later. But it couldn’t have come at a worse time, as the PS4 will launch on November 15th in the United States. What are your thoughts on the same? Let us know below.

    OMFG… That is an HDMI Cable issue… Seriously… That also happens with the PS3 Slim if you used a shitty cable!

    • DarthDiggler

      No cancel your pre-order!!!! Grab the pitchforks and torches and storm Sony Headquarters!!!!!!!

      Dude you won’t get through to these died in the wool XBONERS. They are a special level of low intelligence. Trying to enlighten them with knowledge (that is absent of any console bias) will only get you called a Fanboy. While they are the real fanboys volunteering to remain ignorant for the sake of their preferred console.

      says the sony retard.

    • Tadon

      If this do happens you can just but another one and it will fix the problem?

  • Plapons


    Cancel your preorders NOW… this is not a good sign.

    Buy and Xbox Won.

  • DaGeeZ

    Dear oh dear oh dear sony. This is shockingly poor. Looks like the ps4 was rushed out the door with minimal QA. Time to buy an XBox One people. Don’t waste your money on the Pauperstation.

    • DarthDiggler

      LOL well we will have to see what kind of Day 1 issues the XBONE will have, considering the heft of their update, you are going to have to decide if you are hanging on the cross or banging in the nails!

      LOL @ your failing pauper damage control.

  • Utkarsh

    While folks at Playstation say they have been working on the PS4 since 2008; 5-6 years of planning and still a faulty product. What a shame…. How Disappointing is that.

    All the anticipation down the drain…… Was excited to pick up the PS4; but seems like will need to wait.

    • DarthDiggler

      Yes 1 documented issue out of millions is completely unacceptable.

      Are you really this dense?

    • Crusina .

      21 so far actually.

      and counting. You’d have to be a low IQ pauper to buy a $0N¥ PauperStation brick.

    I always had concerns about heat dissipation in the PS4. Putting the PSU in the unit along with the TDP of the CPU/GPU would produce always seemed precarious to me. I just kept thinking either its got a fast spinning noisy fan, or its severely underclocked. We’ll have to keep an eye out if there are more failures like this, but its not looking good.

    • DarthDiggler

      I assume you have SolidWorks with the $12,000 Thermal Simulation add-on module to confirm this? How does a video overlay issue relate to heat?

      I deal with system designs at my work, you would be surprised how cool you can keep the CPU are as long as you have adequate modularization of the chassis to trap the Power Supply heat from getting to the CPU. We have SolidWorks with Thermal Simulation and a Hot Box we test systems in.

      Suffice it to say I am quite certain the engineers at Sony have far more experiecne than you and whatever doomsday scenarios you come up with they likely already have.

    • Crusina .

      Yeah. You have an avator of a Sony Controller. This smells like damage control lol

    • Guest

      Of course it is. $0N¥ Paupers are getting even more desperate now. Their pauperbrand is going byebye soon enough.

  • Joffre Arteaga

    That’s an HDMI issue.

    Either with your cable or the port in the PS4.

  • Yo Mama

    Yeah, who films only one half of their tv!? Why not film the right side of your tv? Then everyone could see the input flashing up in the corner of your tv and you couldn’t trick people into thinking it was a problem with the PS4! This is obviously an hdmi cord not plugged in all the way.

    • DarthDiggler

      I am curious if this guy actually took any time to troubleshoot or if he just grabbed his camera first.

    • Dakan45

      fail sony fail, ps4 has issues, shadowfall is no graphics kings

      “Killzone: Shadow Fall is a good- looking game, though that mostly thanks to the art design. Textures are a bit blurry at times, and the physics have a habit of freaking out, while the overall graphics really aren’t much of a leap from the PS3 and definitely struggle to outmatch the very best of what a comparable PC can do. That said, art direction does trump hardware horsepower, and Shadow Fall has that where it counts”

      The ps4 reviews are dissapointing.

      PSN spies on you

      Sorry you fags got pwned. Enjoy your ass being rammed by sony you fags.

  • kreator

  • Faisal Munayam

    well they have copied xbox to the bone now .. even rrod’s quickly LOL

  • Haha wow, so many raging kids talking shit when they don’t know jack squat about anything. You guys are just provning how pathetic the humanity has become.

    Believe it or not but this is actually an Easy fix, but I do not expect ignorant people to understand that.

    Have fun raging though. 😉

    • Crusina .

      Fix it then.

    • Guest

      He can’t. All the $0N¥ PauperStation NeoFAGs can do is sh*t their pants.

    $0N¥ PauperStation Foul = Lies, overhype and underdeliver.
    All Mark Cerny’s fault, his epic failure of a game proves it too. Knack = kack!

  • You are flat out wrong

    And then the even worse disc grinding issues in the Xbone happened.

    What a shame.
