Gamer Returns 30 “Faulty” PlayStation 4’s in One Year



/ 2 years ago

Gamer returns faulty playstation 4JediRabbit is a name that crops up on the PlayStation Forum far too often, as it seems that every single console he buys doesn’t meet his very particular expectations. Every console he buys seems to be faulty in his mind, as do his games and even his controllers, in fact, everything is wrong as far as he is concerned. He’s made a staggering 1,829 posts on the PlayStation Forums and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. So the question is, what’s going on here?

Faulty PlayStation 4

It seems from his first purchase, he’s been on a downward spiral of hardware related paranoia. His first concern was the fan noise of the $400 console he purchased. After asking and near tormenting the forum users for advice, who told him that it’s normal, he went and returned the console. It seemed odd to him that the fans got a bit louder when certain games were played. You and I both know that the harder you tax hardware, the hotter it gets, but it seems JediRabbit just can’t grasp that concept. Within six months, he had been through an alarming six consoles by returning them and guess what, they all had the same “fault.”

It’s at this point most people would just admit that they don’t like the console or the hardware. Perhaps buy an Xbox One or a PC and just move on with their life. The consoles also get warm for him when in use, as do many electrical devices, but of course, this is a fault and started another wave of returns.

“Can’t help but notice my PS4 console gets hot on top of the console,” he wrote, adding: “wouldn’t it benfit the PS4 console to have vents ontop to help that hot air escape? [sic]” “Try drill some holes in the top and see,” another user replied, to which JediRabbit responded: “aint got a drill.”

So he took it back, and then the next one, or two, I’m honestly starting to lose count, also had some faults.

“just got a brand newe PS4 and started playing KZ but have noticed during play, a few times i have started shooting and the picture would freeze for around 1 second but i can still hear the gun firing.” He added: “am i just parniod or is this just the game itself and framrate. would anything be wrong with my new console?”

That’s OK, JediRabbit is keeping score, and claims to be on his 20th console now. His local gaming retailer must be the most patient people on Earth. With the console buying madness behind us, the controllers were next for the chopping block, causing six more returns over 60 days due to them disconnecting. PFC_Hudson replied with some advice (see below).

Have his issues been resolved? Nope, he’s still unhappy and now we’re up to 30 consoles and counting. Perhaps JediRabbit needs to understand that the PlayStation 4 isn’t a mythical device that runs completely silent, with flawless gaming performance, subzero hardware temperatures and infinite battery life on the controllers.

What do you think, is JediRabbit a master troll, the most unlucky customer in the world, or (to be blunt) a massive idiot? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I’d say “a massive idiot” describes him quite well.

  2. Soddam Inssein says:

    Massive idiot is being kind.

  3. COMMICZAR says:

    the last sentence is the correct one , Idiocy seems too kind

  4. Porkalicious says:

    That’s not a master troll. That’s a low-tier troll with nothing better to do…
    Or simply just 3 years old. (though most 3 y/o would know that batteries don’t last forever or that electronic things get hot the more they are used…)

    Liar, liar, pants on fire.

    Would have considered OCD, but even OCD people don’t ask that much stuff. My questions are…how old is he? How much free time does he have?

    Or just the typical fanboy of another console. I hate fanboys. They ruin everything.

  6. Goldminer says:

    Funny thing is he’s still got the original PS4 (dealers not that stupid) 😉

    He’s a joke. Nothin’ more just a joke…
