Pre-release system owners complain.
Sony has responded to reports from gamers who have somehow netted themselves pre-release PS4 consoles, be they press or loyal fan, that the console’s they’ve received have been defective in various ways, rendering the system unusable. Their official statement reads as follows:
“A handful of people have reported issues with their PlayStation 4 systems. This is within our expectations for a new product introduction, and the vast majority of PS4 feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We are closely monitoring for additional reports, but we think these are isolated incidents and are on track for a great launch.
There have been several problems reported, which leads us to believe there isn’t a singular problem that could impact a broader percentage of systems. The number of affected systems represents less than .04 per cent of shipped units to date, which is within our expectations for a new product introduction.”
