All of these "launch issues" we are seeing are being blown completely out of proportion by the internet. Should we expect less, we all know the internet is one giant echo chamber if nothing else.
Neither Sony nor Microsoft are going to lose they console battle, they all end up making money, otherwise they wouldn't continue releasing consoles. The real winners though are the consumers who now have two similar, but distinct consoles in terms of price point/media/gaming capabilities. Bottom line, purchase a console, the one you want, the one that fits your digital/gaming/media lifestyle and chances are your day one purchase will run just fine.
This has nothing to do with this thread. This is a real issue affecting real people, just like the "red line of death" is a real issue affecting PS4 owners. It is important to share this information, to bring a spotlight on it, to ensure that Microsoft and Sony both get on top of fixing these issues and replacing affected units.
Why try to silence or downplay that as console fanboy fighting? That is not what this is.
