Sony, the company that removes a feature they heavily promoted because there was a v slim chance it could be used to play cracked games (and that presumes they couldnt prevent it) and this is before we get to their rather chequered past with CD DRM schemes etc.
The biggest problem with the PS4 is Sony.... and Jack Tretton
I am hoping they have learned, I suppose they have to considering the books are so bad, but until I see Sony not being typical Sony I doubt I will be buying. This includes the crap they put out as PR statements like children.
Have you looked into it apart from saying you're OK therefor it's not a problem?
This was their response to that particular survey:
We are constantly improving the design, manufacture and performance of the console through extensive testing of potential sources of any problems. Xbox 360 is pleased to maintain the title of 'most played console' and the vast majority of Xbox 360 customers have enjoyed a terrific gaming and entertainment experience since their first day, and continue to, day in and day out.
GDC08 MS announced they got their failure rates on new unites down to that of other consoles.
There's a wiki article on it here if you want to read more about it:
MS put aside 1BN for 360 replacements:
Microsoft takes $1b hit over Xbox 360 glitches - The Microsoft Blog
Warranty company SquareTrade had the failure rate at 17% with their returns. Tech standard is 3%-6% for "acceptable" failure rate.
Some PS4's are going to fail and if its like other consoles it is likely to be atleast one in every 30.
Like I said, credit to MS for giving everyone 3 year warranties until the redesigned "slim" model (dropped down to 1 year again).

I am waiting for the PS4 slim the PS3 is still a great Media centre.
Looks like the Internet shall be fun to watch this weekend if PS4's are dropping like flies across the world.
My slim has had close to 2000 hours since its release.
Neither xbox has let me down, and I don't know anyone personally that had a RROD. Considering my friends list on xbox is also close to 100 people, and none of them have had any issues with the xbox either, seems like we must all be lucky.
Not for you @nephilim, just didnt want to double post:
4,000 people got their PS4's early from a Taco Bell promotion, with a currently failure rate of 0.17%
OMG! Failz! OMG!
Some people are just dying to post bad news.

Still a considerable percentage with a figure that will invariably go UP when more people get theirs.
Also some people I know prefer a gaming PC Rig to a console as they prefer to use a keyboard and mouse instead of a controller like the xbox or PS 3 / 4 or whatever console
here dated 10th Jan 2012]... yeah that's a representitive study.
Your fanboy is showing.
