general ps4 question

#1GuyFawkes5Posted 5/17/2014 10:38:35 AM
looking into getting one for my Sister next year(when it hits $349.99) I was just wanting to know if the system has ANY current hardware issues at all? over heating, freezing, shut downs, ANYTHING lol. I just wanna be sure all issues(if there were any) have been resolved before getting her one. thanks.

A little wishful thinking if you think a console, that is currently selling well, will have a price cut within 24 months.

yeah, the controllers have crappy build quality particularly on the sticks, and their battery life is terrible

There is nobody who actually knows this. I doubt even Sony knows when they will drop the price at this point.

The rubber peels off on some of them and the battery life is crappy compared tot he DS3 and Wii U pro controller, it's got about 10 hours of juice which is low compared to those.

I don't know about the controller life of the Xbone since I don't have and I used wired for Xbox 360.

It isn't wishful thinking in the slightest. Nearly all major consoles have had price cuts within 24 months of launch. The only real exception was the Wii.

PS4 has a somewhat high factory defect rate for a game console, though it's pretty low for a Sony system.
I've also heard of people having issues with overheating, but that could be a variety of things.
