Re: PS4 and Xbox One Launch Thread
The guys at Kotaku and IGN was able to get their PS4 to work after inspecting the HDMI port and noticing an out of place wire and flattening it out with a thin metal barb.
IGN is reporting Sony as saying that there may be a 0.4% failure rate and that they will continue to investigate. With 1 million units in the wild now, this means they expect problems with 3,000 - 4,000 consoles. Completely unacceptable, sure, but at those numbers, I like my odds and I expect Sony to make this right should I get a bum console.
The "acceptable" failure rate for electronic devices is 1% of the total amount in circulation. It was even back when the PS3 first came out.
