I do feel that those affected like I have paid for a faulty product that has not only affected 1% it's alot more than that.

Plus it shows poorly on the quality of Sony products.

 

Just like how they fouled up security for hackers they need to start admitting this is a bigger problem than what they have led us to believe.

 

Am I saying we should be compensated.

 

I say yes as I will now enjoy thanksgiving without the ps4 and the promise of  "greatness awaits".

 

 

 

Plus

Xbox is compensating for broken hardware.

Prove it!

Here are just the numbers from Amazon. Who knows how many more?

 

Kotaku has stated that sony believes the failure rate is under 1% but still no  numbers have been released

This may not reflect the majority but that is a lot of reviews.

Here are the reviews from Best buy

and Google

Because they don't just let ANYONE write Amazon reviews.

 

In other words, you have no proof other than the typical gamer "the proof is because I think it's true".

I bought a ferrari and it exploded instantly.  I posted my story to http://www.caranddriver.com/.  It is now an indisputable, absolutely true statistic.

 

Reviews are not, in ANY way, indicative of product funtionality, regardless of whether we're talking Nexus 7 tablets, iPads, Xbox One's, PS4's, Ferraris, or ballpoint pens.

 

That doesn't wash factually whatsoever.

I was one of the unfortunate ones to recieve a BLOD PS4 that did not work out of the box. I ordered it from Amazon. I just sent it into Sony to get a replacement today. Was anyone able to get compensation from their retailer or Sony for getting a defective item? I feel entitled to something since I paid $30 for overnight shipping and had to drive 70 miles to send the return package through FEDEX.


Amazon also has a free shippping option on all orders over $35.00 so I don't think Sony would have to be responsible for that

 

FEDEX has a system where you can contact them, via the internet, and a truck will come to your house to pick up your package so, unfortuantely again, Sony won't be responsible for the driving either.

 

That being said it totally sucks your PS4 was broken, I'd be so upset if I were in your shoes so I understand the motivation behind your comments here.

People who use things like amazon reviews as an indicator to fail %. You forget that close to 100% of people who get a broken unit will post about it, and a much smaller percent of people with a good unit will do so
