PS4 bricking? AMD was looking forward to its role in console part right?

You mean just like how the 360 had a ton of bricks and went on to sell 70 million?

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

I'll reserve judgment until it's a little more appropriate to do so.

I don't think AMD gives a **** one way or another. They already got their contract to provide the bits and pieces needed for both the Xbox and PS4. They've been paid.

Unless Sony comes out and personally blames them, AMD won't even get a scratch.

This pretty much,

Forecasters are saying that PS4 is going to win the next console war hands down. It's basically a low/med grade PC that's easy to develop for. I will buy one next year when some of the really good exclusives come out for it. I don't see buying an XBOX for this go around. All their exclusives that I am interested in will be on PC.

Sony Dronies always change the subject to a different company.

I was thinking the same thing, and you get what you pay for.

Red ring of death says hi. And it did give xbox a very bad reputation even though ps3 had their own yellow light of death to a lesser extent, Xbox had a much harder time out growing that negative stigma it had and it might of hindered xbox sales for all we know.

If not for RROD, 360 would still be in the lead.
That said, these don't look like issues with GPU failure, but rather a crappy HDMI conversion.
