Shuhei Yoshida Explains the PS4′s “Epic Fail” at Tokyo Game Show and Crash at E3

A few days ago a PS4 failed to respond to the controller and to the PlayStation App on a Japanese live TV broadcast (event that Yoshida himself defines an "epic fail") from Tokyo Game Show. On the other hand, at E3, the console crashed during the reveal of Assassin’s Creed 4 at the press conference.

Today he explained both events. (PS4, Shuhei Yoshida)

More or less what I said when the Dualshockers article was put up. Of course the always honest and sincere Yoshida will be 'just talking PR' here. :)

I said the same myself in the article, good to see that we were right :D

Not that I expected not to be :P

The worst offenders with interference are actually Wiimotes. Every single time I go to a Nintendo press event I find one every 3-4 wiimotes failing.

Edit: lol thanks :D

Well I knew about the AC problem because I read an interview with the devs on that very issue, and whilst I didn't discount that there 'could' have been a hardware problem at TGS, I was more inclined to believe it was either a pairing problem or an interference problem.

I've got to say, Abriael, I've been reading your posts just recently and you seem a fair minded person. Just wanted to say that ...

I might be in trouble then.

Even though they didn't have to, I am still glad they did. Sony has pretty much explained their console, fails and successes from reveal. Leading the way are Shuhei and Cerny, honestly I don't remember any system being explained so well. I think if M$ had a Shuhei/Cerny of their own they wouldn't be looking so bad this next-gen.

"@ that was a game and the system still in development, not throughly tested"

OK but if this was microsoft all you same ones would be screaming "OMG Xbone isnt ready yet", or "just stop talking and fix it", "enough excuses show us". Hypocrites are so patient and very understanding when sony says anything.

Mark my words ps4 will have more post launch problems tham X1 because micro has been alot more open to scrutiny and then addressing issues while sony is getting a free pass. I woneer then if the same ones will continue to be so forgiving then, yeah probably on n4g but normal gamers won't.

M$ hasn't been more open to scrutiny, M$ had to pull their collective asses out of the fire. Which is a place that they put themselves. The difference is when or where Sony has been scrutinized they have addressed each issue. There vision has not changed, they haven't made choices that made the public say WTH.

Also I don't really get your logic, if there is a plausible explanation you don't think "normal gamers" are smart enough to believe it?

How else were they supposed to respond though.

"that was a game and the system still in development, not thoroughly tested"- Shuhei Yoshida

I can imagine others spinning this along the lines of "omg, it still hasn't been thoroughly tested yet" if this happened to the X1.

Also, blaming "wireless interference on the show floor" isn't really calling it a failure on their part. This isn't something to go shout praises about.

Also, this isn't an 'epic fail' by any means. This stuff happens and the Playroom has been quite stable for the most part.

lawgone  +   865d ago | Well said
This post is the perfect illustration of the head-scratching, wtf-logic of fanboys. Sony's system crashes twice and its fanboys praise Sony for their honesty in a couple tiny, low detail tweets. MS uses a conference to explain their vision of going to a steam like model and they get bashed for being evil. So, they listen to the criticism and releas a detailed statement that they are going back to the old model. They get bashed for being evil. God I'd love to meet a Sony fanboy IRL.

well saying "wireless interference" is better than saying "system failed".
Fanboys so quick to believe anything Sony puts out there.
Sarick  +   865d ago
I don't know how to convey this without sounding one sided.

What else could they say? If they started making excuses and promoted arrogance that wouldn't have been taken well on any front. If they started saying "Please forgive us" that would've been seen as a weakness. By ignoring it would also be looked down on.

Murphy's law has no predisposition towards reasonable logic or any amount of advance contrivance.

Bottem line: I see it for what it is. A response that says "We screwed up." I don't see it as a way to save face or show arrogance. I honestly see no need to glorify or condemn his response. There was really no other professional way to admit fault without ignoring it completely.

Both companies lie and you should know better if you are a fan of sony.

@Ballseye i give credit where credit is due i don't just blindly follow Sony they felt my anger when they messed up at the start of the pS3 gen thats why i owned 360 before i owned a ps3, but to me what Ms has tried to do this gen is unacceptable i don't care if they changed it they still have to prove that gamers come first and they haven't done that yet so for now I follow Sony because they didn't try to take ownership of your games and say deal with it. i know both companies lie but microsoft is making a habit of it to get my support. annnnnnnd Sony has created some amazing exclusives and devs for me not to own a PS4.

@Silver wanna know why?

Because sensibility and logic suddenly kicks in when something negative happens to PS4. This isn't even anything truly bad since its still in the works, mistakes happen.

90% of comments here from Sony fans are MS lies. Lies about what I'm still yet to see links or facts or anything.

900p native 1080P? Is that it? Because if so than that's just a pathetic lame attempt to hold MS accountable for "lying". In the real world a gamer won't notice 900p from 1080p especially if its scales to 1080p.

Any other "lies" MS made let me know, I would really like to know myself.

Anyway, what happened to Sony is no big deal, like at all. Accidents happen and its still in development.

That article is the author apologizing on MS behalf. MS made no mention of being sorry or asking for forgiveness for their apparent mistakes. It's all conjecture based on press releases and statements made by MS with the author making his own assumptions that it is MS way of apologizing, when in reality everything he uses as evidence is just PR spin to deflect the issue. In fact, to date, MS has shown no sign that they even understand why people were upset.

I personally don't feel that MS has to apologize, we aren't required to buy their product, and they did what they felt was good, even if not well thought out.

johndoe11211  +   865d ago

Do you know why microsoft has not apologized or has not shown any remorse? Because, as was stated by one of their execs at gamescom, they still whole heartedly believe in their DRM BS and will be reintroducing it one day once they can get people comfortable with the idea. As far as the are concerned they did nothing wrong, we are the ones with the issue. It's like a husband who beats his wife and justifies it by saying she deserves it.
Death  +   865d ago
Why would Microsoft apologize for their initial proposed features? They were not adding DRM for the sake of adding DRM. They were allowing gamers to rip their games to the consoles HDD so they could access them anytime and anywhere without having the disc in the drive for verification. The DRM everyone focuses on was to verify gamers libraries were intact and not traded or sold. I will absolutely opt in for this if it is ever reinstated.

As for going to OXMonline to hear "good news" for the Xbox One, how is that not an ignorant statement? N4G is News for Gamers. Sony has their official forums too. If you want to wave your pom poms like a 3 year old on a sugar high, maybe you should go there. Here's the link:

5 Years straight?

2006, 2007, maybe 2008. During the 360's launch Sony was on a smear campaign discrediting the system every chance they got to try and persuade people not to buy it. The launch a year later was horrible with high prices and a severe lack of games to justify the wait and price. 2008 seen a pretty big turn around with a lower price and much better software. I'll give you 2 years of grief, but much of it was their own making.

Microsoft is getting hate for policies that were proposed on an unreleased system. They removed those policies months before launch to make the wrong people happy. These same people are still bitching and the system still is not out. If these people are hating to simply get back, not only is it unwarranted, it's childish.

If you are a diehard Sony fan, what is there to be upset about 7 years later to act this way? I admit revenge is a dish best served cold, but this is absurd. I'd have thought most got this out of their systems with the whole RROD fiasco. When is enough, enough?

I don't understand why the issue was blown out of proportion enough to warrant this article. Both Sony and Microsoft made their fair share of hardware faults at the conferences this year, and no, neither have really being called out about it.

Anyone with an inch of maturity would be able to understand that the system software for both consoles still in development, especially was the case at E3.

So unless Sony try and introduce mandatory DRM or an always-on console, and we immediately forgive or advocate their case, do not try to complain about Sony getting "slide[s]" for relatively minor events.

This is why you NEVER leave a running laptop easily accessible to a unsupervised 5 year old , especially if on Things like this or much worse happens. Turn it off before you leave, and hide the laptop if necessary. Believe me I've had experience with dealing with this with relative's kids....

Hopefully you are lucky for someplace still offering preorders. If you live in Canada, is taking pre-orders, although no watchdogs bundle.

Of course he's gonna say there was no problem with the hardware I can't wait to see when too many people gonna buy ps4 at launch gonna cry about it omg my console keep crashing

Sort of like the 360 at launch??? I went through 3 Xbox 360s within the first week at launch, it took me forever to be able to finally finish King Kong. I'd be more worried about the Xbox One if I were you, after all MS is the one with a proven track record of console failure not Sony. I have a PS3 now because after over 10 360s(not an exaggeration) I got fed up with MS, and switched. I got my fat PS3 at the end of 2007, and the damn thing is still running like new. Although, I bought another 360 a year ago, and it runs fine(had to play Gears:Judgement and Halo4) it doesn't make up the fact that MS produces extremely faulty hardware...

Tell me about how you and your friends got your account info hacked.
AfterThought  +   865d ago
Counting me and my friends 360's you don't want to know how many we replaced within the 2 years until they finally made a better heat sink cause at the time we had to play Gears of War non-stop.

What is stupid is no one ever believes me about the heat sink but if you actually go to the Xbox 360 Technical specifications wiki, it shows you each revision and their upgraded parts..

Funny how the 2nd revision , the upgrades listed is a better heat sink. Sigh.. No one ever wanted to hear me out when I said the crappy heat sink was the reason for the 1st Xbox 360 over heating so frequently.

Those first batch of 360's were so cheap, you should have taken them apart to see for yourself.


Luckily I am smart enough to never use my real information on anything that isn't absolutely needed. I also never put credit card information on something I can't completely trust and I did this long before Sony ever got hacked.

If I need to buy anything on PSN or Live I simply buy the little cards at the game stores.

Not my fault others are not smart enough to do the same.

So me and my friends never have those troubles because we know better than to just put our information any where.

Yeah these demo models need to be restarted all the time, this one just had the unfortunate timing of being when a TV crew set it's eyes on it. No big deal.
Lourenco  +   865d ago
ps3and 2 and 1 came out in different models and some made in japan and some made in china wahts the different between japan and china in consoles and will be there ps4 japan and china like the past or its only ps4 made in china whats going on with sony
TBONEJF  +   865d ago
It because u guys at SONY don't care for your home turf plus the gamers of TOKYO to launch the PS3 at the same time as in the U.S./EUROPE regions. I know ur going up against the XBOX 1 but still AT LEAST LEARN TO LAUNCH AT ALL REGIONS to take TOP SALES
AxeCain  +   865d ago
The fact that the PS4 does not have wifi direct or 5ghz wifi band really bothers me. Connectivity between my vita & ps3 has always been an issue, even with my bluetooth headset.
Gamer666  +   865d ago
Another "not really news article"...

Both MS and Sony will be tweaking and tuning stuff until the final possible minute before the devices and games ship.

Expect both Sony and MS to have a day one firmware upgrade (MS has already confirmed that), and every game will probably have a day one patch.

That's just how these things work...

If it was Microsoft it would be WW3...

I couldn't care less, as long as it works fine in my home were good.

As I say though, if it were a Microsoft mistake this thread would be HEAVING with Sony fanboys predicting the end of modern civilisation at the hands of M$

you hate sony huh? i can tell
hankmoody  +   865d ago
I can't be the only one here who finds all these excuses hilarious. If this were the XBox One, you dingdongs would've been all over these comments raining down fire and brimstone.

Hankmoody... does it really surprise you to see Sony fanboys acting like this? lol Very well said sir.
hankmoody  +   865d ago
Not at all, sir. Not at all. Bubble for you. Day One, baby.
dragongod64  +   865d ago
This is a brand new type of console so some bugs are to be exacted & fix as found.
If you do not like a bugy ps4, what 3 months to a year after lanch.
Bad at spelling some times.
voodoogts  +   865d ago
Fail again to Sony. And still can make profit for the last three years.
robotgargoyle  +   865d ago
I'm sure everything will be ironed before system launches. Epic fail, though? Seems a wee bit harsh.
Krosis  +   865d ago
Yeah it sure does...unless it was MS--then it would be completely justified.
Krosis  +   865d ago
lmao Only on N4G..."Ps4 actually catches fire when it is turned on"

N4G response: "Oh that's'll provide warmth in the cold months! Greatness awaits! Derp!"

Well, hey, you know what? At least this article got posted. Surprising really. We all know if this was the Xbox One it'd be all doom and gloom. Anyone who thinks N4G isn't a playstation Kool-Aid jar then they are in denial. Even the PC tab gets polluted by this redundant dribble. Proof? Watch the disagrees on this post or anything remotely positive about anything other than PS4.

To each to his own mate,

Every brand on here has had the doom and gloom articles

Sony -> PS3, PSVita
Nintendo -> 3DS, Wii U
Xbox -> Kinect, Xbox One

I however will give you an agree! Plus a bubble because your comment was filled with non biased reason.

Though I will say probably the reason there's so many Sony guys on this site is because N4G is advertised in Sony's Official Playstation Magazine (at least that's where I first heard of N4G)

I was just "turning the other cheek". I'm buying an Xbox one on day one. I've taken a lot of flack for defending MS by self righteous message boarders. I've called some people out on their opinions being stated as facts. I've been called out too, but I'm really sick of the negativity, in general.

Never thought I'd get fronted on by a fellow xbot.
robotgargoyle  +   864d ago
I wasn't aware the system caught fire, though. Couldn't view the video on my phone. Bad signal.

The Sony fanboys have been especially malicious the last few months about how "superior in every single way" the PS4 is and how the xbox one is just a " weak motion-controlled cable box" that is destined to fail.

I'm just trying to be positive because I'm tired of negativity, in general.

BTW, I preordered an Xbox One.
Krosis  +   864d ago
They don't get to me as my PC, 2 years old, is superior to both consoles! =P The only game so far that has me interested in another console is Destiny SOLELY because it is console-exclusive (for now?). I'll probably get that for Xbox One as my friends list is on Xbox (mostly PC gamer). As a tech nut, I don't like wasting air as to why these systems will not differ greatly. Console loyalist idiots lack brain capacity: basically they'd take 5 pennies over 1 dollar--meaning they think higher numbers always mean more power. If only they took the time to study benchmarks. EG: Ill take my 16 GB DDR3 over the Ps4's memory ANY day--and mine would be (and is) superior. I've said it so often: care about graphics and "power"? Get a PC. Otherwise, shut up, pick a console and enjoy.

If these fanboys was in line at the midnight launch, it would be a huge fight. Sony and MS fanboys are barbarians on steroids.
Krosis  +   864d ago
Correction: 'pizza-faced virgins' is far more accurate-- "Barbarian" implies they are
A) bad ass B) Have touched a female that wasn't drawn by someone from Japan C)are heroic D)Leave their parents house
