Default Sony says PS4 failures have varying causes, affect less than one percent of units

The PlayStation 4 launch last week was quickly followed by mounting reports of defective units, including consoles that wouldn't display video. Had Sony shipped the console with a common flaw? No, an SCEA spokeperson tells us in a statement (found after the break). The company believes there "isn't a singular problem" at fault that would affect a large number of systems. The failure rate is also relatively small, according to the representative. With less than one percent of shipped systems affected by these problems (up from 0.4 percent in a previous claim), the number of broken systems is reportedly within the "expected range" for a product launch. While we're certainly used to new devices that ship with a few bugs in tow, that figure still leaves a lot of unhappy gamers -- one percent of the million-plus PS4 buyers would still equate to 100,000 people. Sony says it's working to get these systems replaced; let's hope it moves quickly.
