That didn’t take long. Playstation 4 just launched and an alarming number of reports of them coming in DOA are already coming in.
After its launch on Friday, the PlayStation 4 has come under fire from some gamers who say their units have been dead on arrival. The most troubling reports describe a so-called “blue light of death” syndrome, in which the console’s light bar flashes blue but never outputs a video signal or boots up. Reddit’s PlayStation hub has collected 91 separate incidents of console failure, but it’s unclear how widespread the problem truly is. None of the Manhattan-based stores contacted by The Verge had seen any PS4 returns based on the issues.
