Sony: Less Than 1% of PlayStation 4 Consoles Sold Affected by "Blue Light of Death"

If you are planning to get the Sony PlayStation 4 this December, do not worry about the "blue light of death" problem that some owners have reported a few days ago.

According to The Washington Post, Sony spokesman Dan Race said in a statement that the total number of units affected is less than 1 percent. Race said that the company has not received any information suggesting that the issue is widespread. 

Race added on that this issue, along with other problems reported such as connection problems to TVs, is “within the expected range for a new product introduction" and that some units might be damaged during the shipping process. The Washington Post also states that Sony is working to exchange faulty consoles and has made available a troubleshooting guide for users to resolve some problems.

The PlayStation 4 will be available in more countries next month. We have compiled the prices of the console in the different countries for your easy reference and also done an in-depth comparative look at the latest gaming consoles (Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Wii U).
