Next gen console failure rate is very high

I can only imagine things will get worse later down the line. It took a year for my 360 to RROD and four years for my PS3 to YLOD.
We should take away their metal boxes!

Well the failure rate on any individual PC part that you order is probably MUCH MUCH higher than the overall rate of console failures for this next gen so... no, it doesn't make me feel better. I also don't get much satisfaction form the suffering of others, so there's also that...

The logic of some people in this thread also hurts the brain... are you people seriously assuming 100% of all amazon purchasers wrote a review for the system...? I think even 5% of users reviewing it is pretty unlikely.

Any part can arrive DOA, but 22% is an absurd failure rate by any standard.

That's not the failure rate. That's the reported failure rate. People without problems don't complain and thus successes are unreported.

How would sony even know the failure rate? They would also never be honest about it anyways. After the failure rate of the launch 360 I would be really surprised if these weren't at least close to being accurate.

Because they cannot legally lie about that

Darn them stock holders.

Lots of negative reviews from butthurt fanboys, that's why.
It's okay, I have no idea who I am either.

You can combine the PS4 and Xbox One failure rate and it's STILL lower then the expected rates. As a PC gamer you of all people should know that anything under a 15% failure rate is actually considered good.
