What's the risk for being an early adopter? One very realistic concern, especially with regard to new videogame consoles, is that you'll receive a broken product. That's what a few people that have already gotten their hands on PlayStation 4s are experiencing. It hasn't even properly released to the public yet, but there are already a handful of reports of hardware failures.

The problem, as reported by CVG, seems to stem from faulty HDMI ports. Four instances of display issues have arisen on the Internet -- one from Kotaku, one from IGN, and two from contest winners. In each case, the HDMI cable couldn't fully be plugged into the unit's jack, leaving the PS4 unable to transmit picture to the television.

Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios, tweeted that Sony's looking into the issue, but believes that these are isolated incidents. It's a tiny sample size right now, so it's difficult to postulate whether these are actually indicative of a greater problem. With the hours dwindling before the PlayStation 4's released to the public, I'm sure that mystery will be solved soon enough.

Not long now and we will see if the Xbox One has any dramas. 7 days.

How could there be any wide spread burns if only a few have been released?

According to Techradar the official release date for PS4 is Nov. 15. Which means, as I was typing yesterday, it had just released. Not enough time to for massive failures to mount. Let's give it a few weeks and see. I am hoping that the PS4 does not have massive failures and same with xbox one. I just want to see happy gamers. Of course there will be failures, every product has them.

If the PS4 does have lots of failures, yes, I will laugh at and ridicule Sony but not the the console or the gamers. I feel for them when shit goes wrong because I know how it feels and I bet we all do. Yup cheers! Here comes some great gaming! Better than PC in my opinion!
