I'm getting a warranty, though generally that's stupid, as electronics generally kaput very early in the lifespan.

I'm finally feeling I should let the cat out of the bag on this one. I'm considering taking back this second DS4. It must be how tight I press the left thumbstick while playing BF4, as the rubber is wearing off my 2nd. mad.gif
This was noted on neogaf and of course the public cryers screamed it was xbone fanboys trolling, but, something about the batch of DS4s not included in the console box...I just don't know.

Normal updates are small, that is for a full system restore. Two different files Sony offers.

It's probably not wrong. I'm sure there's more data involved with HDD replacement. The 1.5 update is only 308MB though.

Yup, if there's real issue we won't know for months.

As of now I think there's been a total of 5 units reported to have issues including a guy on twitch right now that I'm surprised hasn't hung himself with his own shirt while burning his house down (he powered his unit down during the FW update and now can't figure out safe mode).

Wow. The DS4 thumbstick wearing down was a hot topic on GAF about a week ago (that community is insane and so entertaining to keep up with).

If a lot of DS4s have this Issue it could be a major black eye and pain in the ass for sony.

Let The console wars begin!!

I had that happen on two of my DS3's, but it was after a ton of use and using it to gold a lot of ridiculous races/time trials in GT5. Hopefully it's just a bad batch of whatever plastic/rubber they're made of.

Keep taking them back until you're satisfied. Might want to also contact Sony.

Someone did that during the Wii U day one update, it caused a massive outcry as well.

Has anybody heard anything about RedBox ? Will they have PS4 games available on Friday, Saturday or Sunday ?


Does Redbox have PS4 games now ???



I really want to rent Madden before opening it, and I kinda want to rent Need For Speed Rivals to see if I want to do a B2G1 deal on it.

Lolololo I cant even find the words. Does no one read the warning?!?! Poor guy. Hopefully he can get Sony to help him flash it back to factory or replace it.

Sure you'll know before tomorrow, but I intend to check out my local redbox. In the same boat, thinking I'll rent NFS once I've beaten KZ, Knack & AC4.

Clever.
:face palm: I should have waited for redbox also to see about NFS.

@ahartig
A black eye...maybe. Who knows. People kept taking back those RROD 360s, and that was the whole console, not just a but of rubber on the controller.

On another note. Isn't the portability of the PS3/4 a selling point to anyone besides me? The benefit of no external power brick...

I prefer power bricks, or N64 style bricks. My first PS3 died thanks to a PSU failure. (Lightning strike, blew out my surge protector's battery backup and hit my PS3 hard enough to cripple it. It lived for a few hours before it failed 100%)

@the playroom video; I see the novelty of this and HOPE game devs can find a way to make this tech really bring games to the next-gen.

Watching this video i honestly felt like Ice-T was gonna knock the console down...

I'm hoping I don't have the same luck with the PS4 as I did when the PS3 was released. I went through 3 different units the first 4 months of ownership. First 2 times, the laser that reads the discs went out. The last time, the infamous YLOD.

I'm getting really really really excited now!! In less than 24 hrs I'll have a PS4 in my hands!! I feel like a teenager again as I'm goin to the midnite launch at GS. My buds and I are all going to the release together, first at 6pm to get a piece of paper saying our place in line than back at midnite to pick it up. Already have KZ4 with drool on it from the past few days lol. I like how GS is doing the launch. Such an exciting time to be a gamer! It's been a blast leading up to this reading all the posts from all you fine folks on the board. Here's to a great launch!!

It might be best for people to start downloading the day 1 patch now and then update through USB rather than wait until the servers gets clogged up.

As a sales person I have to say this is really a clever strategy by Sony. I can imagine that remote play is very appealing to a lot of people who only have one TV in their household which they share with other family members.

My kids might like it though, so in 6 months when I'm looking at picking up a PS4, I'll consider getting it. But if Lego Marvel Superheroes is out by then, they'll want that instead.

first thing i am doing is upgrading hard drive tor a faster 1tb.
downloaded the os recovery file to a thumb drive it was a little over 800mb
learned from the last 6 yrs with the ps3 that the drive filsl up fast and that the more data thats on the drive the harder it becomes to back up and upgrade.
