Issues shouldn't present a significant problem

Sony has been talking about the issues that have been reported with the PS4 hardware in the last week or so.

There have been a handful of problems that seem to be bricking PS4s so far, the most prevalent being the 'Blue Light Of Death' – a blinking blue light which seems to be linked to a malfunction with the HDMI interface.

So far Sony has stated that none of the issues represent an impact on a significant number of units sold. They currently believe that the 'Blue Light Of Death' affects less than one percent of machines. PS4 'Blue Light Of Death' issues limited to less than 1 percent of machines says Sony

Sony's Dan Race added, “There have been several issues reported, which leads us to believe there isn't a singular problem that could impact a broader percentage of PS4 units.”

“We understand the frustration of consumers that have had a problem,” he continued, “and are working with them and our retail partners to help troubleshoot issues and ensure the affected units are exchanged.”
