i mean I feel like its not very flush but i can't pinpoint a problem with the pins

 

Check kotaku, they detail how to fix, if it isn't flush that is the issue!

 

Everyone, when you get your PS4 be very careful when you plug in the HDMI, be very gentle with it!

So that's like 5-10 confirmed CAGs with faulty PS4s? That really stinks. Sorry guys =(

 

Mine is out for shipment now. Hoping it's a healthy console!

Anyone else had the broken hdmi issue? Just a pulsing blue light here. I've tried taking the hdd out, nothing helps. THIS SUCKS! Any help appreciated

 

Same issue here. Just pulsing blue and no picture. Guess it is time to call up Sony and get a replacement sent out.

Man, this sucks so many people are having issues. Good luck to everyone who hasn't tried their console yet!

Sounds like this is going to be a very big issue and is a far cry from the "Isolated incident" they want it to be.

I know they said USB ports are part of their accidental plan but I wonder about the HDMI.

Question about updating via USB. Does the USB need to be empty/clean? Or can I use my External Harddrive and just load the PS4 > Update folders onto the root? Having other stuff on there won't intefere, will it?

Apparently a pulsating blue light does not mean your hdmi is broken there is a fix... and i've listed it below including the source:

 

1. Remove the HDD

2. Turn on the PS4 (without the HDD)

3. Turn the PS4 off and Put the HDD back in

4. Turn the PS4 back on again.

5. The system should now boot to the OS.

This will re-format the HDD, so its best if we backup our saves to USB while we wait for Sony to give us a permanent fix.

Apparently, the ones that have flashing blue lights have been shipping with "bricked" hard drive or fragmented ones... so formatting it will fix the prob... hope it works!!

This makes me even MORE happy that my stock drive will never even spin up.

 

Upgraded 1 TB drive will be in before the system is even hooked to my tv. :)

Shu came out and said they anticipated a 0.4% equipment problem rate (if you've ever taken a business or engineering stats class, you know how they come up with these numbers!).

 

Given the hundreds of thousands of consoles that are probably part of this first run, you're gonna hear stories, especially since people will show up to announce a problem, but the majority who are not having a problem wont be posting to say "mine is fine", etc etc.

Just saw that coupon AMazon is giving for the Kindle Fire HDX.... but damn even after $30 it's still a little too expensive for me.

Well, finally got to play a bit of AC4. Looks like the 4.5gb initial download only covers the first sequence and Abstergo Entertainment section, as trying to start sequence 2 left me on an "installing . . . 10% complete" screen.

That's fine. I'm impressed now. Looks as good as my PC (5 year old CPU, but I upgraded the video card 2 years ago), but runs smoother, which is pretty much what I hoped for.

Hopefully the rest of AC4 will be downloaded when I'm up tonight. I did notice an odd graphical glitch of sorts where the outline of the player character would blur around the edges when fiddling with the camera but I'm hoping it's just due to the 'partial' download.

I went to Hastings this morning at about 9:30. I didn't pre order, but was able to snag their last one. So awesome!

What I noticed from the video comparisons (because crappy video players don't do the differences much justice in terms of fideltiy) was some of the cloth modeling and smoother animations.  Especially during the fight sequences. 

 

Hopefully, that's what I'll be playing tonight once the kiddies are in bed.  Knack and Lego Marvel, probably, this evening. :)

As I've said, the HDD trick doesn't always work. I've tried it and no luck. I've been on hold with customer support for about thirty minutes now.

Apparently Lego Marvel Heroes won't be sold in Target stores until Nov. 22nd and any orders still pending from Target.com are back-ordered with no estimated time of delivery. And I have never had so many problems getting a straight answer out of anyone in customer service as I have trying to figure out if and when this game is going to be available. This has been my morning. I give up. I'd just go buy it somewhere else if it weren't going to cost me $30 more to do that.

 

Time to set up this console and hope my bad karma is already a spent and it's not DOA.

I went to Target to see if they had a game in stock and there were about nine people waiting to pick up PS4s without pre-order cards. Everyone walked in and got their consoles just fine but because of the B2G1 deal there was only one copy of Killzone and they had very few copies of everything else. So people going there were going to be able to get consoles but not games. That said, the manager there - if you asked - was willing to give a raincheck on the B2G1 sale.

I can't sign into PSN. It's stuck on a please wait screen. Should I turn it off and back on? I can't do anything else.

For those that got a faulty unit, where did you get your PS4? Could it be a batch production? Sucks that this is happening. Hope you get your issues resolved.

I had a please wait screen for 30 mins. I turned it off, turned it on, signed in and got on in like 3 minutes total.
