Surely, you didn't expect the PlayStation 4 launch to go smoothly, did you? As with any product launch, there is always a margin of error, hopefully encapsulating a small percentage of users and focusing on isolated problems. We all remember the early Xbox 360 issues with the Red Ring of Death, and luckily the PlayStation 4's problems aren't nearly as bad.
Be assured we are investigating reported PS4 issues. The number is very small compared to shipped, we believe they are isolated incidents.

In fact, Sony claims that only .4% of all consoles suffer from any issues, with the most notable issue being the system giving off a pulsing blue light and not outputting any video. The cause of this issue seems to be linked to the HDMI output on the system, with the only avenue for fixing this problem that is available is to return that system.
On Twitter, Shuhei Yoshida claims the incidents are isolated and most users don't need to worry.
One issue that does affect all users, however, is the instability of the PlayStation Network. As expected, the PSN has been up and down all weekend, as flocks of gamers attempt to access it to download games, play multiplayer games and stream video. Luckily, this problem is only temporary as Sony adds more servers and the traffic levels out.
