GPU failure of some sort in PS4?
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.
