Francis got his PlayStation 4 from Sid Shuman of Sony, was only allowed to keep it for 2 hours

Francis, who is known on YouTube by his username boogie2988, talked more about his recent PS4 experience. According to Francis, he was only able to keep the PS4 for 2 hours and faced no overheating of any sorts during his 2 hours of play time.


Francis commented on reddit that he had to follow a 'strict set of rules' on what he could and couldn't show so that Sony could 'maintain momentum'. The unit was taken back by Sid, it was needed for promo purpose elsewhere.

Maybe highlight of the day, but life? Come on..

Take a Hyperbole bro.

shivvy241378d ago

I laughed when he threw his xbox to make room for ps4

sincitysir11378d ago

I like Francis because he hates on Sony and micro but also enjoys micro and Sony. Oh Nintendo too

hakeem09961378d ago

HOw is spending 2 hours with a console give you the right to talk about overheating ? Not even the old 360 would overheat in 2 hours .

BBBirdistheWord1378d ago

I had to laugh when he threw the PS4 controller.

Didn't take long for the ps4fanrage to take over... lol

falcon1378d ago


how about when he threw the 360??? lol

Black-Helghast1378d ago

@Consoldtobots Uh.. who gives a sh*t about our image? Don't let what others think get to you.

Baylex1378d ago

This guy is a little retarded.... poor women that's filming him... I bet it's hi's mother and he throws a game into her?? Hook it up?? Kill the lights?? Is she his bitc*?? cmon... this guys is really stupid...

x713hitsquad1378d ago

@Baylex. You do know this is just one of his characters right?

grahf1378d ago

/facepalm at everyone getting on Boogie's case for being fat (hes lost a lot of weight already... yes he was fatter), jumping to conclusions about the woman filming him (that is his WIFE), and not realizing Francis is a satirical CHARACTER and a raid boss of YouTube.

Yeah I bet you're just a chiseled fine tuned well oiled machine. No one person defines a group. You will learn that when you grow up.

Than again I'm sure Francis doesn't give a sh*t what some attention seeking troll thinks of him since he is an online vet and use to ignorance like yours.

I am both jealous and yet feel sorry for Francis. Can you imagine having to give it back? They could've at least gave him one full day with it. Poor guy.

Than again 2 hours of gaming on next gen greatness = where the jealousy comes in on my part.

Is it known whether or not Francis had to sign any agreement not to post opinions and what he could or could not video?

The closer we get to the release date the longer the days drag by.

Gaming1011377d ago (Edited 1377d ago )

It looks like the same thing happened to his gym membership... they also took it back within 2 hours.

VENOMACR12271377d ago

At least that treadmill in the back is getting used as a clothing hanger, exactly what it was designed for.

I know it's just a box but it looks pretty cheap especially with the plastic handle. The PS3 was boxed much better, but it's just a box so who cares I guess. Why would he throw the brand new PS4 controller? Didn't realize how thin the system is, impressive.

Life? it's released in 5 days where he lives.

iceman061378d ago

Really...I could have sworn that I have been beta testing it for awhile now!?!?!? LOL

come_bom1378d ago

That was pretty cheap by Sony. Sony got free publicity and didn't even offer him the console. That's seriously f***ed up.

Deadpoolio1378d ago

Hey do me a favor remind me which company it is that had some consoles sent out early and then proceeded to ban those people till launch, after they went full retard and decided to make 100 different videos to upload on youtube?

gamer20131378d ago (Edited 1378d ago )

It's obvious that they only let him keep it for 2 hours because they were worried that it would overheat and cause a PR disaster for them.

christrules00411378d ago

All of the PS4 heating problems are non existent according to developers. The only reason it did overheat was because it was in a box that was barely big enough to hold it and had no ventilation. No doubt it would overheat.

fenome1378d ago (Edited 1378d ago )


whomp, whomp, whomp

Why even waste your bubbles? Or better yet, why don't you put them to better use?

I don't care if you like the console or not. It affects me in no way at all whatsoever, but if you're gonna bag on it at least bring up something relevant. Is that all you got? Something that's confirmed as a rumor?

You wanna look at PR disasters, look on the other side of the fence. That'll keep you busy for HOURS.

How well would you breathe in something like this? Especially blowing hot air..


BBBirdistheWord1378d ago (Edited 1378d ago )

@ gamer2013

Hey man, be careful about insinuating that the ps4 overheats. That reaaally upsets the fanboys.

Just wait and see.

So far there has only been one confirmed report of a ps4 overheating in an enclosed space at a tradeshow.

If the ps4 actually does overheat in the real world (like it did at the tradeshow) we'll soon hear about it when gamers stick it in their enclosed TV cabinets and play it for a few hours.

In the meantime, it's best to leave the fanboys alone. They get so upset.

BOLO1378d ago

You mean like how M$FT un-boxed the Xbone a whole 3 months early?

tagan8tr1378d ago

@BBBirdistheWord spoken like a true fanboy

a_adji1378d ago

@BBBirdistheWord you sound like a fanboy yourself from your comments dude.
And no I am not a sony fanboy but a gaming fanboy.

BBBirdistheWord1377d ago

@ ^^

Hey what's with the ad hominem attack?

It's no secret that the ps4 overheated in an enclosed space.

All I am saying is that some gamers will undoubtedly put their PS4s in enclosed TV cabinets.

We'll just need to wait and see if the rumour holds any water.

Sheesh. Touchy.

And that is in no way depressing.

TO all are the People who took my comment seriously i don't know what to say \(O.O)/

deno1377d ago

Sad life you have, when a piece of plastic is all it takes.

Consoldtobots1377d ago

people who get mad at others for telling them to lose weight are misguided. You ARE NOT being given bad advice. Get off your high couch.

Ps4Console1377d ago
