Something really cool Play Asia is doing for X1 and PS4

I shop a lot at Playasia. It's an online import site for most of you who do not know. I just got this email from them upon waking up. Keep in mind it's an option for those of you out there who are curious or scared about console failures.

Dear My name was here
With the advent of next generation consoles, it is definitely an exciting
time for gamers across the world. Unfortunately, with all modern console
releases, there has always been technical issues for day one adopters.
Reports from various sources for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners both
describe problems with their consoles, and it is the last thing we would
want happening to you.
As this is the case, Play-Asia.com offers a free pre-shipping testing
service; if you choose, we will test your console for you to see if any of
the documented errors exist. Of course, the console's packaging will be
carefully removed, but this is to ensure that console will indeed be 100%
working, and you will receive it with an added peace of mind - especially
for such a huge commitment.
As well, if your console ends up being one of the affected, we will provide
another console, and once again you may ask to have this tested first.
It is once again unfortunate that these issues exist, but at the very
least, we will try our best to circumvent the potential inconvenience for
our valuable customers.
Best Regards,
Your Team at Play-Asia.com


So there you have it. It seems that Play Asia will open the console packaging and test the unit for you, then carefully reseal the package and send it to you. If they find an error with the console before hand, they will swap to another one and make sure that one works. Of course this service is to be requested for, you can always just go ahead and buy it without the free-pre-shipping test.

I think I should mention that they do have Ps4's in stock it seems, but as far as the X1 goes they have reserve list only and they have the pre-announced bundles as well. So those should be announced soon-ish. Probably at Microsoft's availability.
