PlayStation 4 has been all over the news these past few days following its launch. From mediocre reviews to hardware issues. Many received their PlayStation 4 bricked, while some have reported that the console stopped working once the latest 1.50 firmware update was installed. Sony’s Worldwide Studios president, Shuhei Yoshida, has just tweeted that the company is investigating these issues, which according to him are far and few. Here’s the tweet:
Be assured we are investigating reported PS4 issues. The number is very small compared to shipped, we believe they are isolated incidents.

People are reporting that the console isn’t working even after trying out various methods. On the positive side, almost all of them have reported that the guys over at Sony have contacted them and are working very hard to get rid of the problem as soon as possible. Some have reported that Sony has replaced their bricked console with a brand new working one.
Sony hasn’t made any official statement regarding the problem. They haven’t made it clear what is the source of this hardware issue. It could either be a production fault or it could also be related to a shipping issue. Nothing can be said until Sony makes an official statement.
