PS4 Red Line Of Death Reports Spread
The PlayStation 4 isn't having the smoothest launch in terms of reliability.
After initial problems supposedly related to the HDMI port (later confirmed as being a system issue that might be easily fixed), rumors of the "Red Line of Death" have started cropping up around the Internet.
They're a little more than rumors now, though, as evidenced by this report at VGN. Multiple users in various communities and forums are saying their PlayStation 4 systems are essentially dead, and they're seeing a red light on the system. A few months ago, there was talk about the PS4 overheating and giving users that red light, so perhaps some people are simply playing too long. But other problems have been encountered, such as a "grinding" Blu-Ray drive.
Combine this with the fact that the PlayStation Network remains down, and Sony might want to move fast to reassure consumers.
