Yesterday we saw reports that a few pre-launch PlayStation 4 units were experiencing some problems. Kotaku received a faulty review unit and had to request a new one, while instances of PlayStation 4 winners from the Taco Bell promotion have hinted at problems with the 4,000 units given away during that promotion.

Shuhei Yoshida was quick to take to Twitter and address the issue, letting people know if they are currently having problems with their PlayStation 4, Sony is working on them.


If you’re one of the lucky few who has managed to get your hands on a PlayStation 4 ahead of the launch tomorrow and you’re unlucky enough to be having problems with it, we have a guide here that may help you. It’s been reported to help users who are experiencing problems with their hard drives on their units.

    I believe so too because most of the consoles that I’ve heard came mostly from Tacobell which to be honest.. I’m not surprised. The bastards probably tried to feed the bloody thing Doritos and Mountain Dew in the vein attempt on creating a PS4/Xbox One Hybrid… but all they got was an Xbox 360.

        Maybe I should, the Xbox One is great for jokes especially with all the 720p games it has

    My pre-order is coming in tomorrow it seems all the bad units came from the same reign hopefully it was a bad batch pallet may have been dropped or maybe Taco-bell gave them the Soup Poops i dealt with the RROD 3 times with Microsoft really not wanting to have to deal with more system returns
