Sony looking into PlayStation 4 hardware problems on eve of launch
Some people who got an early copy of Sony's PlayStation 4 console have reported major performance problems. Ahead of the PlayStation 4's official release on Friday, reports have already surfaced of gamers and reviewers receiving retail units that aren't fully operational.
Gamers who received early PlayStation 4 units through a special promotional deal Sony offered in partnership with Taco Bell began to receive their units on Wednesday, and some of these early adopters quickly discovered problems with the new gadget. Two Reddit users claimed that their consoles were essentially dead on arrival. Another early PS4 owner said his console froze when he was updating the game "Battlefield 4" and "hasn't worked since."
