Next gen console failure rate is very high

yeah and 15% on each one of those rates are people who make up dumb negative rates when they dont even own the systems. . .

you know . . . because no just ANYBODY can make a 100% legitimate rate in amazon. . .they have to be "REAL" XD

And Civ V is barely a 2 star game on Amazon.

Take Amazon reviews with a whole shaker of salt.

Makes you feel glad to be part of the PC master race, right?


No. Topics like this make me embarrassed about it, honestly.

It's not 22%. Ever heard of sample bias?


Yes, I have. But even if it's only around 10%, or even 5-7%, that's still abysmal.


The official word from Sony say between 0.4 and 1%. It 'seems' much higher because they have shipped over a million of them. On average, electronics have about a 15% failure rate within their first 3 years.


Now now, you know that logic has no place on GameFAQs...

To be honest, isn't this to be expected the first year or two of new consoles? I'm sure 4 years down the road they will be top notch (in terms of their expected abilities).

Since you think 22% is very high, if anyone borrowed or took $100 from you they should just give you $22 back, hey it's high number! You'd be satisfied with 22% of the money back because it's really high!
#37vecrynPosted 11/23/2013 2:28:56 PM
you do realise not all leave a review? right now they are estimating only 1% of the systems have failed. 22% reviews mean nothing quite honestly

The only official number I've seen so far is from Sony saying that the reported failure rate on PS4 is less than 1% of all sold units so far.

Dunno about the console with literally the worst name ever but I suspect it's worse seeing as it tries to do more things meaning more things can go wrong, also the company it comes from has the worst quality products with highest failure rate ever (the famous 360 RLoD).

I think he meant ONLY 22% ($22) back, not $122 back.
