GameZone writes, " Sony has acknowledged various reports of users having trouble ejecting discs from their PlayStation 4." (PS4)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 322

"What title were you trying to eject?"

Are we saying that the game discs for PS4 games aren't all the same size (physically)? That would seem a little odd.

The disc thickness is not always the same. If you own disc games. Sometimes you'll feel ones a little more stiff.
MajorJackHoff  +   253d ago
This sucks eggs, but problems are to be expected.

Like I said before, I'm just waiting for awhile to get my console. I'm excited as hell to play, but not excited enough to deal with problems that MAY occur. Next year I'll hold that beautiful little DS4 in my slimy little hands :')
thrust  +   253d ago | Well said
So many problems and bad reports :(
ZBlacktt  +   253d ago
Dunno.... I'm sitting over put MANY hours into AC4 since I picked up my console midnight release. Not a single issue gaming 10+ hours a day.
Brazz  +   253d ago
@ thrust > sony reported that only 0.4% of Ps4 are having problems.... ok, let's just say for a minute that this number is a lie, and that Ps4 have 10x more failure rate...
you see, 4% of 1.000.000. is 40.000. Now answer ... 40,000 (or 4000 if the " 0.4 % failure " is true ) is a good number of people dissatisfied , correct? Add this to the number of Xbox fanboys talking bad about ps4 and " this shit done " ... " PS4 BLOD " / " PS4 Fail" / " PS4 overheat " .... this is bullshit , I mean , of course in the end the ps4 may have problems , but assume that these are serious problems with less than 1 month of release ? This is ridiculous ...
Wait and see how things will develop, it is too early to condemn any of the consoles . If the ps4 really have problems , it's going to be shit for Sony , and yes the consumer should have a nice F!@#! You on sony ... The same is true for microsoft , who are interested in the X- 1 should give a chance to the product , and if the X- 1 prove " troublesome " one F@#$@# must also be sent to microsoft !

for now one should not condemn anyone , it is too early and there are no consistent numbers ... but that's just for now , because if any of the two (X - 1 / PS4 ) have a high failure rate all gamers should demand a quality product! I do not care what damage is caused to sony or microsoft, all I want is a good product ...

@Brazz

Wasn't the .4% based off the Taco Bell giveaway consoles? I'm not sure the actual percentage has come out for the total number of PS4's sold. I imagine it's going to be much higher than .4%.

So far so good for me as well (I have Knack but not playing it NEARLY as much as you are with AC4). I am just worried that one day it's going to stop working all of a sudden.
Derekvinyard13  +   253d ago
My friend has this problem and was on the phone with sony, they tried to troubleshoot it but it just won't release the disc. He's waiting for his coffin. If this happens it needs to be returned. His was working on and off. Don't risk it. Manufacture issue
ShowGun901  +   252d ago
Funny how people start having a problem with their ps4s on this site AFTER an article describes in detail the problem for the first time... Not necessarily calling you a shill, but at least a rampant fan boy... Ps4 sitting at about 8 hrs use a day on 3 different games with no problems whatsoever... I don't make the news though
WeedyOne  +   252d ago
I can add one more problem to the list.

My PS4 eject button does not work AT ALL. I didn't realize this for the 1st few days because I only had Killzone and had no need to remove it. That was until I beat the game and bought Need for Speed and realized the eject button doesnt work. The system can eject games through the menu just fine (hold PS button then select "eject disk") its just the physical button on the console that isn't working.

Kinda sucks but at least its not bricked. I can play games till Gamestop restocks on PS4's then trade it in easy with the 90 day warranty they provide.

harrisk954  +   253d ago
@Praxxtor Cruel..

Yes, "overblown...until it happens to you." But, overblown, nonetheless. It sucks for those affected by defective consoles (no matter what brand), but honestly with over a million PS4s in the wild, there is still a small number of reported failures.
Reverent  +   253d ago
Given the small amount of problems versus the sheer amount of PS4's out there, at the risk of sounding a bit cruel, I think it's a pretty great start. This is the PS4's first week of life and hardly anyone's having issues.

I feel for those that are, but the overall scheme of things seems fairly positive. The responsible thing for people with these issues to do, is to sort it with Sony's customer support. Not rant about it on forums, etc.

Those are the people that are going to actually be taken care of.
VENOMACR1227  +   252d ago
I just hate when people say "if it's broke just go get another. It's under warranty." Well no, you can't just run to Target and pick one up like you can a PS3. You have to mail it in and wait weeks. Who want's to do that? If a system breaks and it's your, it's a big deal. You paid $400 and it's broken already, I'd be pissed too. And the fact you can't just grab one sucks too.

Droidanomix  +   253d ago
Why? Sony has acknowledged "various" and even had to come up with and publish a solution for this problem. Other than blind fanboyism, how have you come to the conclusion, as a matter of fact, that this is a "very small number"?

Edit: @famoussasjohn Right, .4% is the failure rate; as in, the console is completely non-functioning. Also, is this the same .4% number that came out before launch and before this issue was even known about?

Visiblemarc  +   253d ago
YES.

This is the first console launch cycle with the CNN brand of news coverage. It's too much. Mass produced electronics have defects in small percentages... This isn't news.

Just because you are or know someone affected does not mean the problem is widespread. That is self-centered thinking.
Mystogan  +   253d ago
The rate of failures is much higher than Sony likes to admit. We're hearing lots of bad reports on the internet. Now they changed their statement saying that its now "less than 1%". I believe its closer to 20%. I hear more people having trouble than people having a good experience so far on reddit.
Caffo01  +   253d ago
@mystogan
LOL 20% ?? that's more than 200k ppl.. don't be an idiot.
And of course people who goes on forum commenting on problems are looking for that on google or various forum searches, it's normal, if it happens to you, you start looking for a solution or other ppl with that problem, while the others don't bother and continue playing. Are you so surprised that no one is praising the PS4 on forums?? the console has been out for 4 days, everyone who can is playing it like crazy.
Omegasyde  +   253d ago
@TRD4L1fe

My PS3-slim had this same issue. Should I create an article on it?

MY Ps4 shipped with a bad HDMI cord should I create an article on it?

MY Iphone 4 factory OS on the phone would random shut the phone off. Volume button didn't work.Should I create an article on it?

Point is stuff like this is expected. NOW if there was reports of the PS4 overheating, then that's an issue. The console has been out 4 days.

People are jumping the GUN. I will also state that MS is going to have similar issue, but we shouldn't throw pitchforks at them either unless there is a significant amount of bad consoles.

I love that on the internet people over exaggerate about the stupidest s#!t.

No. That's like saying if one car catches on fire, then the story should be "BMW's Having Trouble Not Catching on Fire". The likelihood of the problem is critically important when writing a story on the issue, and much more so with the headline.

@Mystogan, you are really gonna throw the percentage up that high?? do your research. many Claims of faulty consoles have been duplicated by customers to bolster defective numbers as well as people claiming defective consoles that they actually never purchased one.

if i report on 4 different sites that i have a a defective console, sees that mean i have 4 defective consoles. That is what is happening. People are facing real issue with their consoles but they are abusing the social media aspect of the internet to vent their frustrations not realizing how it can make things worse in the long run.

Sont has stated that at present the number of defective consoles is a bit over 1% and they are taking all defective consoles and replacing them. They are not waiting to see high numbers before trying to fix the situation.

Also do you think the majority of gamers with perfectly functioning consoles will be online posting.. I highly doubt it, most will be to busy playing.

As for all the crap about waiting till XB1 releases and see how sony fanboys act when the competition has a problem, all i can say is are you really so desperate for attention.

to be clear i am in no way saying their is or isn't a problem. What i am saying is that when you post your problem online, do so responsibly. Spreading the word about an issue is good, just remember that your claims can be twisted.

I wasn't so lucky. My first disc went in, started spinning and clicking sound was heard and finally a loud grinding/popping sound, I went to eject and it only pushed out about a inch of the disc so I had to pull the rest.

JeffGUNZ  +   253d ago
hahahahah that is not a "fix", that just gets the game out of the console. That in no way fixes the underlying issue. So, everytime you want to eject a disc you have to dissemble a portion of the console? Yeah, great. Those select consoles will be sent back and fixed/replaced and all that does is remove the game so they can send it back.
BX81  +   253d ago
Yes this is a fix to the current disc stuck but not a fix to the hardware failing to eject. To be honest things like this are a big deal. I'm not giving Sony my money till less of these issues happen, same goes for MS. Last years failure rate was unacceptable, so they have to know us gamers are weary of launch problems. Either way for those with this problem, I hope it was just a disc issue not the console.

mabreu  +   253d ago
PS2 had many problems. One issue was so bad that Sony got sued because of it:

http://www.gamasutra.com/ph...

This happens to all electronic equipment. Back in 2008, my Samsung 32in LCD TV did not work on the first day. It cost $700 bucks but I got it replaced the next week. It sucks but it happens. What Sony should do is have back up PS4's to help ease these cases. At least 10,000 units should be reserved for replacements in my opinion.

My PS2 had disc reading problems. Got a 2nd one later it worked fine, but then later had the same problem. I discovered an easy way to open up the PS2 and fix it. As dust collecting by the laser is all that stopped it from working. It is small not even as much that is coated on the bottom of a mouse. So yeah issues do exist, but even so its a small thing most of the time.

Sony will likely fix any issue you have with your console.

I know i'll get disagreed with but i had this problem yesterday when trying to eject ac4 to play bf4.

I had to press the eject button like ten times for it to come out.At 1st i thought it was on my end, because i had the lights inmy room of and im not used to the placement of it since its so small and thin (right under the disc slot) so i cut the light on to find out the disc bay was having a hard time spitting it out.

And for thoese who will inevitably disagree with me f@#k off if its a problem it needs 2b addressed.
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   252d ago
Maybe it's just the 1% of people having problems just making it sound like all the systems are having this problem. I play my PS4 about 6-8 hours a day and it stays on about 18 hours a day. It has been working fine with no overheating, no ejecting issues, or bricking issues. The system is super-quiet.

There is a manual disc release under the glossy section of the cover, removing this doesn't affect the warranty. You also remove this part of the cover if you wish to change the HDD.

Neonridr  +   252d ago
@DeadlyFire - so basically the regular eject button doesn't work but as long as there is a manual eject button underneath the casing on top it's ok? You are going to remove the casing everytime you need to eject your disc? Or are you just going to play your system with the top casing off now to save time regardless if it looks ugly as a result?

Should elevators not working properly be ok because they have backup breaks in case the cable breaks?

Just because there is a fail safe, doesn't make it ok that it's not operating as it should.
Murad  +   252d ago
If you take anything apart within consoles, even the sticker on the back of the Ps3 or 4 will automatically void the warranty. it's stupid, but this is the same for some heatsinks on PC builds as well.

@ GTgamer

So, since yours in not loud, that means the other million are fine? Oh, you and your friends, wait, so like 4 people. Great, good sample size there. My original Xbox did not RROD AT ALL, I started having weird noises, subtle, but sounded off, told them it was acting up before my warranty was up, the extended warranty and sent it in and got a new one. That doesn't mean it didn't happen for others. My PS3 never YLOD on me, doesn't mean it didn't happen for others.

This console points to being rushed, remember when Sony said the generation wasn't coming for a while and boom, February they rush an announcement where even most people on this site were underwhelmed by the reveal. The failure rate isn't anything serious at this point, but it's only been out for a few days. I am more curious after a years time where both consoles stand.

Agreed. That's why I don't buy into all this crap about you can't expect every console to work. BS. There was a point in time when things were produced with quality. If you pay $400 plus for a product you should expect anyone you pick up to work properly. The problem is consumers stopped voting with their wallet and just accepted mass produced product flaws. Is it going to happen with mass production!? Yes, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't hold these companies to higher standards and demand quality.

Dudes, chillax a bit. I make no secret of being a Sony fan, and wouldn't touch an Xbone. But the PS4 does have a few glitches. I've had the eject problem once so far, and display & power down problems. Let Sony gather the data & hopefully issue a fix. This constant speculation of .01% vs. 50% is useless. I suspect that a large number of problems stem from (1) hdmi sync issues (flashing blue light), and (2) ppl yanking the power cord cuz they don't realize it can take far longer than 7 seconds to force a shutdown.

They didn't even know the release date of the Xbox One during that time. Sony announced it first and MS announced their's later on.

NO MATTER how much any company delay's their console, their will ALWAYS be hardware malfunctions on launch day. Their is no such thing as a perfect launch.

Boy with all the doom and gloom articles popping up for Sony I would be led to believe the XB one will have zero issues at all upon release.

My PS 4 is running fine and I have been using it a lot. I had a problem ejecting the disk, it was me not knowing where the eject button was cause I hooked it into my entertainment unit (or "city of wires, cables, and dust" as I call it) and just played. Instruction manual went back in the box immediately lol. I've been playing games since atari's river raid and figured I would figure it out. Which I did after 10 mins lol. Killzone is crazy graphics man, nuts. I got that and BF 4. So far killzone has hooked me more. Can't wait for my try at diablo3 for the first time

But seriously, is the XB one going to be that well built? Will they have any faulty units at launch? And what if it's a overheating issue???? :0!

When will people realize reporting on Sony HAS NOTHIONG TO DO with Xbox One.

So one has to believe the Xbox One will have a flawless launch, without any failures - in order to post about PS4 failure.
Does one have to have an undying allegence to the Xbox brand, and hate Playstation, in order to report on PS4 failure?

We'll have articles on both. They're not written by fanboys from opposing sides.

And it's better they have them both.

Unlike some people who seem to have the understanding that PS4 failures articles should only exist if and only if the Xbox One has a perfect launch.

But it's the same known Sony bashers and X1 fans who show up at these articles and bash hard every time. They are like stock bashers who troll financial forums crying the sky is falling and bashing the stock relentlessly to scare investers away and make them sell to create a price dip.

These people are usually employed by some entity for the sole purpose of creating FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) in the mind of would be buyers. Its a tactic, and yes there are people paid to do nothing but that all day long.

"But it's the same known Sony bashers and X1 fans who show up at these articles and bash hard every time"
And not the same Sony zealots acting as apologist for every misstep Sony makes without fail?
It can go both ways man, bottom line ALL FANBOYS SUCK PERIOD. The console "war" is such a waste of time for everyone involved. Embarrassingly enough I guess I have to include myself in the club as well. But I do like games, I don't have to have an exclusive allegiance to any Corporate entity to justify the pleasure I get from playing good games. Yet I still scroll these threads, I guess more out of habit than anything, but it's getting harder to have a decent conversion about games anymore.

im having zero problems with my ps4 and i leave it on all day and switching between 3 diferent disc based games with no issues... the problems people are seeing online are only a few compaired to the million that sold. people need to chill out, $hit happens and it sucks for those that have a problem but its only a few

True and it's too early for the failure rate to be determined. I mean it's been out less than a week. RROD didn't happen right out of the gate. I am more concerned for a years time, see how both consoles stand up.

RROD happened before they built the gate for it to come out of.
