PS4Daily: "The bubble wrap on the top is loosely sprinkled on the box, offering absolutely no support. Furthermore, there is zero bubble wrap on the bottom, leaving the PS4 vulnerable to any considering drop."
bet this is one of those loosers who smashed their ps4's trying to scam their money back
where does the console looks smashed?
It seems like he is trying to find an excuse for Sony. This article shouldn't even be up.
naw just guessing also the pics from a reddit user who says amazon packed it that way one of many the article claims... chk the article about foxcon sabotaging ps4'3 if you think I'm jus a blind sony fanboi...
That's exactly how my ps4 came packaged.
Yep, mine did too. I was kind of nervous when I first turned mine on.
I don't see where you have the right to call someone a loser when you can't even spell loser. Loser.
whats the point of the bubble wrap at all if you don't wrap it securely, and also don't they have supervisors that checks the boxes before they are dispatched to prospective customers.
with the amount of shipments that had to be made, I am sure QC was at the bottom of the totem pole. Sucks for this guy that some idiot didn't do his job right.
the point of the bubble wrap is so you can pop the bubbles after you are done with the box:)
I'm working seasonal shift at an Amazon. Even if they were packed like that.. which they are not.. they are stored and handled with the best care.
This isn't the first time I've heard of this, though. Not to mention: Amazon likely uses UPS or someone else for their shipping, meaning they're not in control of the quality of that transfer.
@trip BS. While mine works fine, it was from amazon and packaged just as described. Bubble packing on top, nothing on the bottom. It came from Indiana if that matters.
Mine also came from Indiana and was shipped just like this.
@NexGen I do temp work at the Whitestown Amazon building which is in Indiana. There is also an Indianapolis, and Planefield warehouse. You can call my comments BS if you want but I don't really care. We don't pack them like that.
Okay, so whoever works with you doesn't pack them like that. Great. You can't automatically assume that EVERYONE does the same as you, everywhere else. Obviously, people are getting their Amazon-shipped consoles in the way described. Maybe your comment isn't BS, but it's bad of you to treat the situation like it's BS because you aren't a part of the cause.
I'm not upset or anything.. just saying.. jeez
No, thats not the cause of faulty HDMI ports. Some might have a bad packaging though.
You should've seen my expression when the girl at BB dropped the case of PS4s on the ground before handing me one, OUCH!! I got one from Amazon too with wrap on top but both work fine, whew!
Oh look more drama!! Everyone's PS4 came this way. This picture is fact! The world is coming to an end in a week! This is madness, this is Sparta. Going back to game on my PS4. But you people sit here and enjoy, lol.
You know what zblack I hate you... show off coming here and teasing about how you are enjoying your ps4 while we (the rest of the world) wait for ours to arrive :)
You will love it bro! All this nonsense I see on here just has me scratching my head. I check in when I take break from AC4. Which is a damn good game!!!
This is exactly how mine came from Amazon. I was thinking a lot of good that does protecting it. I could understand if the box gets flipped upside down to take up space, but I think they should've used a smaller box, or at least wrapped it around the PS4 a few times..so it's sort of floating in the middle of the box protected safely. Oh, I should mention that my PS4 works fine, but I felt a need to comment on the poor packaging job from amazon.
I'm not sure I agree here. To me, the PS4 should be packaged in a box for shipping. It is well known that secondary packaging is not high quality from any distributor/shipper.
Man WTH is going on. I got my PS4 from GameStop Friday, and I still haven't had a chance to hook it up. I'm hoping it work, but I will be ordering that 2 yr warranty ASAP http://www.playstationlifes...
got mine from amazon shipped and packed perfect. works like a champ. I love amazon beats standing in line at midnight to get the ps4.
I love amazon too. Mine came with airbags on the bottom and top. I've also had my PS4 on since I got it yesterday and I've had no problems at all. Even though it said the network was going through maintenance, I was able to go to the PS Store and download contrast and resogun.
yeah that was the only thing weird I experienced. I would start a dl then it would say psn down for maintenance like it would not start the dl. but it did every time so idk.
I call BS on this one. Amazon wouldn't ship a single PS4 in a box that big.
They shipped mine the same way.
How are these buffoons going to disagree when they are not the people who received the package? I received mine the same way. My system works fine
Funny thing is Amazon has very good customer service and to be honest we all know (including the retard fanboys here) they would never do something like this. Sony on the other hand has a history of being anti consumer and dishonest liars about their financial situations and blunders. Who do we blame here? Take note that IGN, Kotaku and the early Taco bell PS4s that were broken didnt come from Amazon. Stop damage controlling and maybe Sony will feel sorry for you for once and think you deserve to know the truth.
Mine came shipped this way as well. Padding only on top, nothing on the bottom.
I'm surprised it actually came in a box and not a padded envelope
No its poorly put together consoles with cheap parts in poorly packaged boxes. Good hardware dont just magically malfunction in abundance. IGN and Kotaku's PS4 didnt come from Amazon and they had the same problems. Most of the consoles have defective parts in them because Sony barely has money to make a quality console in abundance.
For what it is worth, I got a PS4 with Lego Marvel shipped in the same box from Amazon. I wasn't planning on opening the shipment until my birthday in a couple of weeks, but I decided to open it this morning just to make sure everything was ok after reading articles like this. There was bubble packaging on top but none underneath or on the sides of PS4. I video recorded my unboxing and setup incase there were any issues, but everything was fine with my shipment. It all set up perfect and connected to the PSN fine. The update downloaded and installed in maybe two minutes or so? I was also able to download Resogun, Contrast, and Warframe. The three combined downloaded and installed in less than a half an hour. I also set up my remote play on my vita, and everything connected. So my shipment from Amazon worked fine. Now, I put it away until my Birthday (or at least thanksgiving.) Somehow, I had the willpower to not actually play any of the games I downloaded. Definitely looking forward to actually using it soon!
What's in the box?! What's in the box?!!!
That looks like the box mine came in.
My system arrived in the same way I can confirm that this is true. However, I have no problems with it so far.
