A commentary examining the recent issues surrounding the PS4 launch. Reports are coming in from multiple news outlets and social media sites that a number of Playstation 4 customers have been having issues with disc drives, Red Lights of Death, and Blue Lights of Death. Several consoles are being reported as DOA (Dead on Arrival), while others are reporting that their console stopped working after a few days of use.
Many of the stories reference Amazon reviews, but also point out that many of the reviews could possibly be faked by Xbox trolls. In this video, I examine the Amazon reviews and give thoughts on the issue of whether this story is being over or under reported by journalists.
