I don't know what it is and I've never heard of it

First time I heard of blue light of death. How can that be classed as "infamous"?

nX960d ago

Sensationalism at it's finest :)
Compared to the last generation the failure rate this gen seems to be almost non-existent.

I've heard of it... once... at launch.

you guys haven't heard of the infamous blue light of death?:

SilentNegotiator959d ago

It's so infamous that no seems to have heard of it an entire 2 years into the PS4's life.

Hows it sensationalism? It would be sensationalism if it was in the title. This is just in the text itself, it was affecting quite a few units at launch, but was within yield expectations.

never heard of it either.....i wonder if knows the definition of the word "infamous"

edit: i googled up an artcle:

it says that the rate of this problem was less than 4000 per million consoles...... hardly infamous.

"infamous" would be more like the 30+% failure rate of RRODing 360s.

We are now about 20 months into this generation. By this point last generation I was on my 3rd 360, and very close to the point when I had to get my 4th.


I have.

But hey I read N4G so of course I have.

I brought mine on launch and had no problems what so ever

vikingland1960d ago

I've heard of it but it wasn't wide spread. I think it was from people plugging the power cord in wrong and bending the connections.

MasterCornholio960d ago

I heard of it before and the issue where the disks eject by themselves.

Thankfully as a launch PS4 owner I didn't have an issue yet. I have a feeling that these systems are more reliable than their predecessors.
