Bricked!

Got a PS4 shaped brick sat on my desk at work at the moment

Plugged it in at work to do the update before getting home tonight to play and I've got the dreaded BLOD. Just got off the phone to customer support and got a replacement coming out on monday. 1 - 0 Xbone.

They did say they could get a new one to me tomorrow but I teach kids to swim all day saturday so I won't be in. The bloke then said, they could get it collected on Monday have a look at it and get a replacement one to me in 7 - 10 days! I told him in no uncertain terms that wasn't acceptable and after speaking to his manager they agreed to do a swap on monday. He did mention that the problem might be related to the transit process and looking at the pretty crappy packaging of the PS4 he might be right. Nowhere near as protected as the Xbone was. If Sony have dropped the ball on packaging and caused all these problems then it really is one of the dumbest things I have seen. There was no polystyrene or foam in the box all just cardboard.

Hope it gets all sorted slim. Not good. One thing I did praise about the xbox was the way it was all packaged up. I was shipping one to the Netherlands and got extra packing. Once I opened mine I realised I would never need it.

Must admit the packaging certainly did it's job on my XB1. If it really is a packaging error on Sony's part which is causing all the blue lights, that's a big oversight on their part.

Bad luck Slim.

Cardboard only isn't unusual. All the PCs at work come packed like that and we've had one DOA unit in a thousand plus. As long as there's a big enough gap, and it's not used as a football substitute by an inept courier its usually fine.
