Nearly 40% of Xbox One reviews on Amazon are 1-star; users reporting broken disc drives

xboxoneMicrosoft began selling the Xbox One today and people are already complaining about problems.

Several users are posting videos and issuing reviews about a problem with the disc drive. When inserting a disc, the broken consoles make a bad grinding sound and are unable to play disc-based games.

It’s unclear as to how many people are affected, but a quick search for “broken Xbox One,” on YouTube shows quite a few angry customers. Over on the Xbox One product page at Amazon, 35 percent of customers have issued a 1-star review, with many reporting the same disc drive issue.

Important to note that not all the 1-star reviews are from “Amazon Verified Purchase” customers. Still, a good chunk of people seem to be having legitimate problems.

Microsoft hasn’t issued a statement regarding a specific problem, only directing gamers where to go for technical support.

Sony, meanwhile, had its share of problems after debuting its PS4 this past Friday. While still unclear, it appears many issues were caused by damage during shipment.

We’ll see how many Xbox One users end up reporting faulty consoles and we’ll update as we find out more.

    There is an active campaign by Sony fans to mislead on Amazon, a quick browse of the gaming forums finds much gloating. Like you said, unverified.

        Every console reported as working carries just as much weight as one that is bricked. The ease of social media means you usually only hear the complaints and not the success’s, giving a distorted view. It sounds you’re only interested in the bad news.

        The PS4 had the same to contend with. I know it sucks but a small percentage of duds are to be expected in the manufacturing process. The scale is nowhere near RROD levels.

      Fallacy of false generalization.

    • Rob

      Nearly as many PS4′s were given one star.. it might have been around 30% – but that’s still WAYYY too many for Sony considering how flawless the PS3 was overall..
      My guess is these flawed Xbox’s and PS4′s are being built in the same Chinese factory..

      • gravebane

        xbox one was 3.7 stars on amazon, ps4 3.9 stars on amazon. not that I think that matters but it says something about the reviews. both have they issues which I feel are a tiny percent of those sold for both units. I think the majority of the 1 star reviews are done by the fanboi’s of either side needing to bash the other guy.

        • brad

          Difference is most the Negative comments against Sony are verified out of the 300+ negative Xbox amazon reviews less then 90 are verified buyers. Kind of shows you want Sony dies win at……..trolling

          • gravebane

            most? when I flipped thru all the pages I got the feeling that most were unverified buyers?

            and less then 90? did you actually count? I counted the first 5 pages and came up with 30 verified. there are still another 26 pages of 1 star reviews to go thru.

            on the PS4 I came up with 21 verified buyers on the first 5 pages leaving 1 star reviews.

            most of the negative comments for both units appear to be non verified.

          • brad

            I went through 10 pages each 55 verified negative for Sony with 75 more pages to go.

            40 negative verified for Xbox on 10 pages with 22 more pages to go.

            If that trend continues it means roughly 120 of the 300 negatives xbox got are legit. Where about 500 of PS4s 800 reviews are accurate. However we have a handful of fake reviews on both ends before the consoles were released. About 40% of the Xbox negatives can be trusted ass Sony has 55%-60% verified negatives.

            These numbers are changing daily however as of now Sony has the largest number of Verified negative consoles on Amazon buy percentage and numbers.

            You do the math that’s a lot on both sides. Now please people stop bothering me( thats a general statement)

          • gravebane

            interesting. with 5 pages xbox clearly has more, at 10 pages PS4 is clearly has more. does the number of reviews per page change based on how long the reviews are? its a long weekend I may count the first 300-400 reviews on each unit, keep a tally for both just to see. am sure at some point I’ll find myself bored and needing a few mins away from the games.

          • gravebane

            I do find it funny that you round 128 down to 120 for the xbox instead of up to 130, but then round the PS number up from 468 not to 470, but all the way up to 500.

          • brad

            You are spreading propaganda everywhere too funny. I saw your other post “PS4 sold 1 million in the USA” completely inaccurate it was 1 million in Canada, The US and Mexico. Sure your names not Matthew? You seem to post a lot of fails BS and can’t give a website to back it up. Now where is that proof you could still buy and Xbox one through the Microsoft website on Friday???? Funny most these pissed off sony fans are people who just joined this site in the past few days. Sign of a true fanboy joining a sign up forum based website just to bitch about a product you don’t have lol. You don’t see me on a gaystation forums bitching.

            Now please post some proof Microsoft was still selling Xbox ones on there site as of Friday our piss off. And please send a link not “well my friends said”

          • gravebane

            funny I posted that website “proof” in the conversation that we were having about the xbox ones selling on friday, why don;t you go check it out.

            as for the us canada and mexico, I may have been wrong and it looks like the yahoo articles I’ve red it in have been updated. but your still wrong and spreading your own propaganda. the launch of the PS4 included only the united states and canada.

            http://www.geek.com/games/bricked-ps4-reports-are-very-real-no-replacements-available-for-months-1577464/

            Everything I read said “north America” last time I checked Mexico was in north america second we don’t have gamestop in Canada. The article makes a good point about “how many were actually released” cause as of Saturday their were none on Microsoft.com and weeks before that same thing.

            But you backed something up with a link and a rare situation happen and was over in a few hours. Maybe if I could read the future and their wasn’t a limit on how many you can buy (online) I would have ordered. I needed 3 and Target was the best option at the time.

            This is historical moment a PMS fan had actual proof behind something. Too bad it was a temporary, rare instant that lasted a few hours.

            I wonder what Sony is gonna do about the DOA units that they are saying can’t be replaced for months.

          • gravebane

            and just incase its to hard for you to find the other conversation. http://www.gamespot.com/articles/xbox-one-in-stock-at-microsoft-stores/1100-6416329/

            and if the link don’t work google xbox in stock friday gamespot. it should be near the top. I seen that friday and went to check around 4pm… yep they were still available at that time.

            Says North America! ! If this is a mistake how was I to know? Hundreds of sites are saying North America you originally said only the US 100% inaccurate from the beginning. Now please join 5 more forum website to ride the Sony dildo

          • gravebane

            LOL yea I guess someone’s riding a dildo here. doubt its me though. there are also hundreds of sites saying the united states and canada, including the yahoo ones that originally said just the united states.

            also like how you get all defensive and stop talking about it when I prove that xbox ones were still instock as of friday afternoon. damn xbox fanbois, your one of those squeeky voices 14 year olds talking trash on the xbox arnt ya? based on most of your other comments you sound just like one.

            go back to my first post in this topic. both systems are decent systems. they both have problems. both minor problems. but because I prove your own propaganda (nice word by the way, you must have picked it up fairly recently, your parents defending obama maybe?) to be wrong I’m riding a sony dildo, just love the way the little kiddies with inferiority complexes lash out.

    If you trust the trolls on amazon who gave out fake 1 star review without being 100 feet to xbox one ever, you should go talk to your doctor but not writing articles here

    • Matthew Bryant

      But the PS4 1 star reviews are all valid right? Some of them are fake sure. The same is true of the PS4. The majority of them are real though. That’s just common sense.

    • Ted Mexico

      Um, I’ve read through a lot of the Xbone complaints on Amazon and many of them are from verified buyers….there is no faking that. The only people labeled as verified are people who bought the xbox.

      In fact the IGN team did their review of the xbox and the unit they were supplied with was broken so they had to request a new one from Xbox.
      This is certainly not a “fake” issue.

      • Guest

        I know you posted 7 days ago but in case some one reads your comment in the future and believes it. Pretty sure it was only Dan Stapleton’s (new editor at IGN) Xbox that was broken. Both consoles are getting fake reviews with about 1% failing.

        And if you believe a review unit failing is such a huge thing the PS4 unit was broken. They reported this when they were reporting on the early PS4 winner from Taco Bell having trouble with his console and trying to get it fixed/replaced. IGN’s console got replaced right away since a distribution center/head quarters or whatever was down the street.

        Regardless, I’m going to assume you were posting only to inform and not troll. This console war is dumb and each company is keeping the other 2 in check. As gamers we should love games and not put them down out of spite or because our console can’t play. I haven’t gotten either console yet. I’m fine with my 360 and portable consoles(psp/3ds).

        I’ll end up getting an X1 eventually and decide on ps4 based on gaikai. If I don’t like the method they are providing backwards compatability I’ll get a ps3 first and later buy a ps4. II choose to buy consoles after the library grows with games I “have to” play. I came into current/last gen late and out of the old games I used to play a long time ago xbox had the games I played. Would have gotten both if some of my favorites like suikoden, wild arms etc would have been available.

        To each his own. Right now alot of games are coming for current gen and I’ll eventually play/own the awesome next gen games that are out and coming out. Killzone, dead rising and killer instinct look great. People shouldn’t put so much stock in reviews. While I agree garbage will review as garbage. It does not mean you won’t enjoy or even love the game. Right now is a good time to be a gamer.

        ps sorry for the long post

        • Ted Mexico

          “Pretty sure it was only Dan Stapleton’s (new editor at IGN) Xbox that was broken.”

          This doesn’t really discredit anything I said. My comment was in reference to the guy who said all the negative Xbox One reviews were “fake” and their was no disc drive problem. That’s why I pointed out that the IGN review said that the unit they were reviewing had the exact same problem. As for what the exact “failure rates” are……as the Xbox 360 debacle taught us we need to give it some time before knowing the exact % is.

    • David Allen Cobb

      research the concept of verified buyers before you blame the trolls

  • brad

    I bought 3 all 3 WORK FINE. And were was your story about 40% of the Amazon reviews who gave PS4 gaystation a 1 out of 5. Both systems have problems bit try not to be so bias

    • joe mont

      I shouldnt believe amazon but I should believe a person claiming to have 3 duplicate consoles, allllrighty then.

      • brad

        Hey jackass I have 2 nephews, (plus one for.myself)I bought them each one for xmas and tested them all out.

        • Idiot

          You bought them for Xmas so you took them out of the box? Sure yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

          • brad

            I’m mailing them to Boston from Toronto Canada my nephews are 11 and 13 didn’t wants to be sending broken Xbox ones. What a bunch of dumb retard on here.

          • Matthew Bryant

            So, let me get this straight. You chose to have the consoles shipped to you instead of having them gift wrapped for FREE and shipped straight to their parents. You then opened the console to make sure it works, even though that’s a big taboo when you’re giving it to someone who isn’t in your immediate household, and then paid international shipping on top of it? Now you’re really full of crap.

          • brad

            You really are a moron I never said “I had them shipped to me” I waited in line friday morning at Target they did NO PREORDERS but they also had no limit on how many you could buy. “Big taboo” they are children who live in another country from where I made the purchase. Funny thing is no one is liking your comments shows what a dumb ass you really are. Gaystation4 fanboys keep jumping on your Sony sinking ship jusy made their first profit in 5 years while Microsoft crushes them. (Sony posted a 2012-2013 profit of 450million first tine they had a profit in 5 years Microsoft made 6.6 billion in 1 quarter of 2013.) Gaystation Nation is a failure, kind of like Sonys response to the time you gaystation network got hacked and everyones credit card info was stolen. Sony had to hire a third person company to fend off the hackers. Lol

          • Matthew Bryant

            You can order Xbox Ones online at Target. You wouldn’t have to pay international shipping then. Opening a gift that you’re sending to someone who doesn’t live with you is incredibly tacky. Do whatever you want with Christmas presents for someone else I suppose, but if you can’t understand why it’s tacky you’re an idiot.

            Gaystation 4? LOL, thanks for proving my point. Fanboys are hilarious. What does overall profit for the company have to do with the game consoles or your attempt at pretending you sent Xbox Ones to your nephews? You just proved you’re fake. Thanks for that. Pathetic fanboys.

          • brad

            Mathew just sad he is too poor to afford an xbox let alone 3 of them as gifts. And no you can’t buy and X box on Target.com as once again you make a comment with zero supporting facts xbox has been sold out on preorders for weeks. Plus their was a limit of 2 with most stores. Mathew a typical pre Madonna crybaby PMS4 fanboy. I see you have an ignorant comment for everyone who post on here. Talk about “pathetic” look at your bank account then in the mirror. Have a great Christmas on your welfare check

          • Ted Mexico

            “pre Madonna”? ROFL….alright dude…just give it up…..you’re obviously some 16 year old douche Xbox Fanboi living in your mom’s basement.

          • brad

            Sorry buddy go buy another PMS on “store credit” welfare case.

            99.9% of the People who are on welfare with you. Checkout the average home prices in Toronto and you will understand why $1000 isn’t shit up here. Love these welfare case ignorant Americans(I’m American live in Canada 8 years bit some Americans make the whole USA look like fools case and point Mathew here.). Jealousy is a sad thing to watch, sorry my nephews and I will be next Gen gaming while you are crying about how you can’t afford either console. I feel bad for any nieces or nephews you may have they talk about “deadbeat dads” Mathew will be a deadbeat uncle. I also fly them to visit me twice a year is that “fake” too? Sorry some of us have careers and real jobs Matthew, now please go get your unemployment check or go back to salting frys at burger king.

          • Jake

            Uh Xbox 360 has been hacked on more than one occasion also Microsoft profits can be hugely contributed to xbox gold and stuff which is stuff ps3 users got all for free.

          • brad

            Complete lie please provide some proof. I’ve been and xbox gold member 6 years never had a down network. Please give some supporting links cause the PMS network hacking was huge news even covered by some tv networks.

          • Matthew Bryant

            Reminds me of one obvious Xbox fanboy that said he bought a PS4 to sell it on eBay in an Amazon review, but when he took it out of the box and tested it found it didn’t work. Yeah. Right. People are stupid.

        • Matthew Bryant

          Calling people names definitely makes your argument more valid. Also, generally people don’t open up consoles to “test” them before Christmas. I’m not saying you’re lying, but if I opened a Christmas present and found that the box had already been opened and the present required no assembly it would be an awkward moment to say the least. It’s one thing if they’re your kids, but nephews? Just leave them closed.

          • brad

            Or use some logic Mathew I’m mailing them out of Canada into the US. I bought them at Target in Toronto need I give you more info? I’m pretty sure if they had been defective my nephews would have been screwed or had to mail them back to me so I could return them. You PMS4 fanboys are such pre madonnas “if my present was opened it would be awkward. ” or how about be happy you got a $500 gift(+13% sales tax amd shipping more like $600+)

          • Matthew Bryant

            Or they could just call Microsoft like EVERYONE ELSE. Nice try fanboy. I don’t have a problem with reality. You’re obviously lying. The fact that you feel the need to attack PS4 consumers proves that point. Just shut up retard. So pathetic…

          • brad

            Microsoft preorder been sold out since july welfare case. Oh and here is target.com
            http://m.target.com/p/xbox-one-standard-edition-console/-/A-14787660

            Sold out.

            Matthew is still saving up for a PMS3. Life in your moms basement must be rough.
            Came on here shooting your mouth off at everyone sorry I’m your intellectual superior and make enough money to buy a nice gift fir my family. Matthew please get a job and stop being a miserable douchebag.

          • gravebane

            lol on friday there were still xbone’s available on the Microsoft store website. if they really sold out they didn’t do it until later friday / into the weekend. I’m thinking when people started opening broken units they pulled what they had left off the website in an effort to get them out as replacements. then again I could be giving microdoft to much credit.

          • brad

            Grave do you just make this shit up in ypur imagination? ? Microsoft stopped taking preorders months ago.

          • gravebane

            nope, after reading something about them still being available friday I checked around 4 in the afternoon and yep, they were still taking orders for the xbox one bundled with 2 games of your choice and a year of xbox live. might have been an extended warranty in the package too

            just google “microsoft store xbox one friday” and look for the gamespot. it has no time but thats what made me go look.

          • brad

            Please provide an internet link?? Once again another PS4 fan who can’t back up anything he says with a supporting website.

            I went to 2 eb games and was adviced by a manager to wait in line at target as it was the only place he knew that had Xbox ones. I checked Microsofts xbox website in October was sold out. Please provide a website cause your credibility is lacking.

          • Ishboo1337

            Dude… “prima donna”… At least know what you are saying if you’re going to insult someone and call yourself their “intellectual superior”. Plus your insult frankly makes no sense… You are the one acting like you are better than people.

            how is being a Microsoft fanboy any better than a Sony fanboy? Why limit your gaming experience? I bought both systems. I want to play good games regardless of the system they come out on. I’ve never understood this war. It’s ridiculous…

          • brad

            You must have missed like 90% of my other comments about how “the games are what really matter” second I’ve never spelled the word prima donna in my life I know it’s Italian but didn’t spend the time chcik it on Google like you did lol. Pretty sure it’s a good comparison for someone who crys over getting a $500+ dollar present because it was opened.

            And yes I am better than a PMS fanboy crying over every comment on here. (Yes Matthew literally replied to everyone who commented.)

          • Ishboo1337

            Ummm.. I thought prima donna was common knowledge. Don’t think I need Google for it. I’m not defending Matthew either… I’m just saying, a fanboy is a fanboy. Whether you’re for Sony or Microsoft. Both systems have their upsides and downsides. all I’m saying is: if you are a gamer, get both. There are damn good franchises for both systems. Why miss out on good games because of this unreciprocated loyalty to a money hungry corporation that just sees us as $$$$. I understand having a favorite system and some people can’t afford both. But to get so mad and butt hurt over it… Just strange.

          • Ishboo1337

            P.S. I wish I was one of your nephews… These effing systems put my life in financial disarray

            I have a ps3 ps2 (had a ps1) N64 (for all the awesome old zelda games) Wii Xbox one, xbox 360 xbox original and a great PC. I totally agree but not wasting time on Sony any longer they rarely get a good exclusive and seem to not understand informed gamers remember shit. Like the time my credit card was compromised due to their BS ps network. I’m really tirend of FFs as I think they are at final fantasy 23 now and they haven’t got any better in the past 5 FFs. As Matthews anger and ignorant rants were based at everyone was only poking him back.

            I just found it funny Matthew (who now made a second fake account also named Matthew) could not give one website or link supporting any of his ignorant rants.

            I tend to treat the kids very good on the holidays me and my sisters have an ongoing battle:-p I have no kids and their grandpa (my father) passed away.

            Spending $500 + sales tax + shipping x 2.

            You’re a pretty darn generous uncle.
            In fact, the most generous uncle I’ve ever heard of.
            On top of that, are your niece and nephew living in the same household? If so, couldn’t they share?

            I’m sure you can appreciate the skepticism. You see, I grew up in a well off family, including well off uncles. No darn way an uncle would be forking over that kind of cash on me or my siblings when we were younger, inflation adjusted of course. What do their parents buy them? Does that not embarrass their own parents?

            If this is true, then I guesstimate your income to be in the neighborhood of $150-200k minimum / year, not including bonuses. Yes, Toronto real estate is expensive.
            Unless of course, you don’t get out much, or do much travelling.

          • brad

            Lol yes my household income in between 150-200k my wife works in the courts I work for the TTC. And a detached home in toronto start at about 550-600 thousand. I’ve been to new England twice this year and mardi gras(New Orleans). No they don’t live in the same household. I live 800 miles away so when I do something for them I try and make it big. Sorry you had a shitty upbringing.

            Sad when people have to make fake accounts to comment 1 comment ever come on Matthew you have to do better than that.

            Haha this comment thread has just made my entire day. I love it so much I want to marry it. I like how everyone who questions “brad” must either have had a crappy childhood or work for minimum wage. LMAO.
            Well “brad” I’ll have you know I sent my 10 nieces and nephews all brand new PS4s and Xbox Ones for Thanksgiving…on Christmas they get trips to the Caribbean (seriously, how poor are you?). :D

            You know you have lost when you feel the need to espouse your “wealth” to others on the internet. This combined with the clever use of “PMS4″ and “Gaystation” in true 13 year old fan boy style is all the proof one needs that you are without a doubt a teenage fan boy of the highest caliber. Your attempt to pass yourself off as a full grown person is completely destroyed by the way you interact with others. Let me give you a hint: anyone who works, or has a wife, or even has a life of any kind could give 2 craps about the “console wars”. You care a whole lot, so you are a child. Period. lol.

            If you really worked for that company you mentioned, you would presumably be at work on Monday afternoon…not trolling an internet comment section in order to get the last word in a thread you clearly got made a fool of in.

        Request: possible investigative reporting on how Amazon seems to have the bulk of the faulty consoles from both platforms? Seems like they’re not taking care of their products the way they used to. I just find it odd, and slightly concerning, that the last two consoles had a low percentage of failures, yet Amazon seems to have a higher percentage of them than the rest of the retailers.

        (Basing this on only the verified purchases).

        • Matthew Bryant

          I’ll agree they should be investigated due to poor packaging, but you’re assuming they had a higher percentage of faulty consoles and there’s no proof of that whatsoever. Unless you work for Sony or Amazon, you have absolutely no way of knowing that.

        • gravebane

          I don know, we are no where near the failure rate of the 360 with its RROD. so far both systems are under the falure rate of the iphone 4 and condoms for that matter… so I think they doing pretty good.

      • brad

        You onow a majority of people jist read the headlines I just found it funny when PS4 Amazon rating got as high as 40-45% 1 out of 5 stars their wasn’t a HUGE headlines like you did with Xbox but it is nice to see you covered it and funny Matthew is defending Sony onthat forum lol yet says he iisn’t a fanboy.

        • Ted Mexico

          “when PS4 Amazon rating got as high as 40-45%”

          It was only at that level for a few hours, and over half the complaints are unverified users – in other words there’s a really good chance that they were obsessed Microsoft fanboys like you.

          I can’t stand these fanboys. I had both systems last generation. But after 4 RROD and 2 new consoles I couldn’t in good faith support Xbox this time around. Consumer trust has to be earned (at least this consumer) and every PS product i’ve owned has been rock solid.
          If my ps4 dies repeatedly like the 360, and the xbone is rock solid, then i will re-evaluate my opinion.

          • brad

            I had that problem with my PS3 on #3 now and I hardly play it. The psn network hack was the final straw 3 weeks down credit cards infor floating around out their due to sonys fuck up. I bought 1 360 the “Halo 3 special edition” thing has never brocken or given me trouble. Bityou are clearly a fanboy yourself so drop the act. I have a Wii, ps2 ps3 xbox, xbox one, a killer pc and old sega saturn that works and a n64 (microsoft has a lot of old saturn games on the market place kind of made my saturn obsolete.)

            Please check Ted Mexico profile 7 comments ever all bashing Xbox one and Microsoft but he’s not a fanboy for PS4 lol. Clown

            I’ve at least given sony credit on their games just said there’s very few exclusives on PS3 thay were epic games or worth buying one for. Remember Mass Effect Microsoft did that (360 origin console)

          • Ted Mexico

            So you bought 1 xbox 360 and it never broke down and you had the ps3 break down 3 times? LOL. Yeah ok.
            Lie and squirm all you want. It’s pretty well documented that 40-50% was the failure rate for Xbox 360 launch consoles and the ps3 failure rate was well within the industry standard.

    • K

      Gee, 3 out of the 1 million that were sold and thousands sold on Amazon work fine. That changes everything.
      /sarcasm

    • Matthew Bryant

      Someone on Neogaf bought 2 and both had defective drives (and yes, he proved it). So I guess they either work 100% of the time or 0% of the time. There’s no such thing as statistics.

      • brad

        How about posting the link??? Second my point was the Gaystation had over heating, defective hard drives, DOA and iver a 40% failure rate on Amazon but no reporting on that.

        • Ted Mexico

          I love how you claim to not be a fanboy for Xbox, claim to own ps2, ps3, etc. Yet all your posts are “gaystation” and “PMS4″. Pretty obvious you are just a hack troll.

        • Ted Mexico

          http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/11/22/xbox-one-early-adopters-reporting-hardware-problems

          “”One of IGN’s office machines suffers from the same disc drive problem
          many have reported. When a disc is inserted, the Xbox One makes a
          grinding noise….””

          Let me guess..you have some conspiracy theory about IGN being in the pocket of “gaystation”? Just stop dude you’re making a fool of yourself.

          • brad

            Fanboy let it go I saw your comments on the other forums and interesting Fact IGN and Sony have a deal to put IGN on the psn as an app. I clearly said I bought a “halo 3 edition” now a launch day model. My original xbox still works to this day and my 360 is fine as well. I got a return on the brocken ps3 when that one broke I bought a 3rd cause I like some of there RPGs but even that one ia not acting fucked up. Ted please just admit you’re a retarded Gaystation fanboy and move on.

            PS4 network has been a joke since it launched. I hope hackers don’t get in again like in 2011. I’ll play anything that appeals to me but Sony can’t even protect their own psn network identities from hackers. I’ll be skipping PMS4 unless something AMAZING happens which doesn’t seem to be the case. Keep watching the stock fall and theor company crumble (stocks been going down since the launch)

          • Rawrzer

            Xbox already has an IGN app on the XBox 360…soooo what’s your point about Sony getting an app for PSN? I’ve been reading through these comments and by jove your grammar, along with your spelling, are awful. You claim not to be a fanboy and yet all of your statements clearly show that you are one (“gaystation” “PMS4″).

            I am a gamer and all of you fanboys, Sony and Microsoft alike, spout some of the dumbest crap that I am pretty sure I lose brain cells from reading your petty arguments. I originally had a 360 first and my launch console surprisingly lasted for a good several years despite what I was hearing. Although it did eventually get RROD, and the refurbished 360 MS sent me got the RROD, and then the 360 Elite my brother got me had the RROD. But now my 4th XBox 360 Elite is doing well, and I think MS fixed the RROD problem with their 360 slims.

            I recently got a PS3 over the summer and it’s pretty great so far. It’s a slim. I used to own a N64, Super Nintendo, etc. I like to game on PC, too. I just love gaming. I have yet to buy a next gen console because I want to wait and see before I buy one since they might need to work out some kinks. You people need to understand that some people prefer some gaming consoles over others and stop trying to make yourself feel superior just because you own a certain console. Both of the last gen consoles had their pros and cons as I am sure these next gen consoles will, too. So please, stop your petty arguments and just respect each other’s choices

          • brad

    dude, all of those comments are about some defective cd drive, if it is defective as it says, why there isn’t any talk about it in famous media? fakes!!

    • Matthew Bryant

      There is plenty of talk about. The console jut released. Maybe you should give the media more than a few hours to report on it? Especially when nobody knows how big the problem is. Just like the PS4. They jumped on it, and then it turned out it wasn’t a big problem at all. Maybe they decided not to look stupid this time? Who knows.

    • Ted Mexico

      “why there isn’t any talk about it in famous media? fakes!!”

      Dude, IGN did their review of xbone and it was broken so they had to request a new console. Also many of the Amazon reviews are from verified buyers. This is not a “fake” issue..stop being a delusional fanboy.

  • Mike

    THOSE COMMENTS ARE FROM NONE-VERIFIED USERS. GOD DAMMIT, IT’S PS FANBOYS BEING CHILDISH! Why do you guys belive that shit.

    • jack

      Yeah its not like , the Xbox fan boys didnt hijack the PS4 reviews. right

      • Mike

        Believe me, I find them just as pathetic and childish.

        • BBCrisp

          Agreed. I’ll never understand why people feel that liking their own console means that they’re also going to hate the other console and the people that enjoy playing it. I prefer Xbox, others prefer Playstation. Who cares? I hope the PS4 players have a blast. I hope that I love the Xbox One when I can actually afford to buy it.

          A few months ago, Amazon had an “Amazon Verified Purchase” filter for about a week. It was awesome, as it allowed you to see only those reviews and see the overall star rating from only verified purchasers. Not sure why they got rid of it so fast. I would love that feature right about now.

    • Matthew Bryant

      There are plenty from verified users. There’s also a ton of Youtube videos and complaints on Xbox forums. Some are obviously fake, but almost definitely not most. The problem is real. Just stop talking. Also, stop using caps. Parents need to monitor their kid’s internet use. Seriously.

  • gmjnky8

    Damn that would suck! Oh well! My shiny box of goodness from MS works spectactularly! Its been a while since I could not put down a game, forza and ryse are simply a blast! If for some reason my black box were to fail I would just get another one not just jump onto another ship because a slight tear in the sail?! Bottom is they are both great new consoles, but for me MS seems to know what I want. Right now I am passing my 360 thru the One while downloading KI and Skyping family in Florida, started Netflix, 5 secs later ready to watch Pulp Fiction! Cal me a simpleton but this is awesome! No regrets in his house just need to get one more b4 xmas

    Mine worked fine. Every one I know who got it says it’s working fine as well. I’m concerned about how Amazon shipped what appears to be the bulk of the faulty units for both the PS4 and Xbox. What are they doing to these things?

    Moral: Never order a console on Amazon.

  • peter

    would rather have this issue than playstations dead on arrival issue

    • Matthew Bryant

      Ridiculous argument. Both of them make your console Dead on Arrival for all intents and purposes. Sure you can play a digital game (if you’re willing to buy one) while waiting for the box to arrive from Microsoft, but you’d have to be ridiculous if you’re arguing that people are just going to say “Oh well, I’ll just keep it then herp derp” about a faulty Blu-ray drive. You also have no idea if the issue is less, equal, or greater than the issue with the PS4. If there are a larger percentage of faulty drives than PS4 problems then Microsoft has a pretty big problem on their hands. It’s not overly alarming that Microsoft hasn’t addressed this yet with a press release, but the longer they take the more condemning it appears for them. They need to address this and they need to be honest.

      If they lie to customers again like they did with the RROD for almost a year with the 360 then Microsoft will lose big time to Sony. Then again, if they have a huge defect again then they’re screwed anyway. At this point, it’s useless to pretend anyone knows whether Sony or Microsoft is in a better position. One thing we do know is that Sony managed to equal sales of the Xbox One even though they only released in 3 regions as opposed to 13. That’s a pretty big discrepancy, especially since Sony is far more popular in Europe. We’ll see what happens in a few months. I wouldn’t pretend that Microsoft is doing better than Sony though. That’s nonsense at this point.

      • franken stein

        Get off it already we get it you love Sony and the playstation1/2/3/4 who gives a f*ck!!!. You don’t have to go on calling ppl liars and defending the brightest light that is Sony’s honor.

  • jimbob

    Ha ha feel srry for those people that bought the xbrick

  • jimbob

    The xbrick is too big , cant swap games , need internet connection, Still using standard crappy batteries, only 720p compared to ps4 , less powerfull than ps4 graphics wise (admitted by xbrick themselves), its more than likely an nsa spying machine, it looks crap compared to ps4, the controller is worse than ps4, the games launch sucks compared to ps4. But it has something better than the ps4 you can use it to watch tv. woopteedooooo

    • brad

      You do understand Xbox has had a rechargeable controller feature for like 8 years? Gaystation4s are not even turning on for a lot of people. They are overheating, harddrives are crashing and they are getting blue lights of death, plus DOA units, psn network keeps crashing since the release. You clearly did zero fact checking before opening your mouth. By the way Sony stock is dropping since the release and Sony has failed to make a profit in nearly 5 years lol (forbes business magazine) due to lack of change and innovative new ideas( not my opinion those of Forbes) enjoy the PMS4s 5 exclusives while Xbox one has 12 exclusive games already, at the end of the day games are what matters and Xbox is smoking Sony. You think the “better system” PMS4 could at least match games with Xbox one. In the long run Xbox360 destroyed PS3 in marketing sales and game exclusives same with happen with Xbox one and PMS4. Xbox has like 300,000 dedicated paid administration members to control the Xbox live network. What happen to Gaystation network again??? Oh yeah hacked everyones credit cards stolen, the network was down for days as Sony scrambled to hore a 3rd party team to save their ass lol.

    This article is designed to inflame and nothing more. Don’t take the bait.

  • franken stein

    I seen in a few articles b4 launch of both that the ps4 was cool and quiet and the XB1 wasn’t bad but ran hot, then after release I seen on twitch several ppl had on their channels had both and aside from their personal choices which a lot liked both equally, the XB1 ran quiet and with less heat than the ps4. Could depend on what your doing. I think the XB1 is over designed to be more stable. In the past with rrod MS learned and redesigned the 360 to the 360Slim. It was quieter and ran colder. In tests the new at the time ps3slim overheated b4 the new 360slim. MS clearly carried the large fan and more efficient cooling over to the XB1. Id go out on a limb and say the ps4 will have overheating issues down the line at some point. ppl keep saying Sony has knowledge and experience in Electronics. If that wells up in you some sort of faith o reliability than good for you. I however have not been as fortunate when it comes to sony products. They typically end up starting to fall apart at 2-3 years for me. and Im not hard on stuff. Ive had my 360S for like 3-4 years carried it back and forth to friends houses it runs flawlessly. My ps1/ps2′s were falling apart and I never moved them. to their credit they at least still ran but the controllers were busted. Didn’t have my ps3 long enough to know how it would have faired I sold it. DVD players/ radios Sony stuff just isn’t synonymous with high end quality. But all in all I don’t care i’ll still buy Sony and MS I like what both consoles offer.

  • Mark Edwards

    The question: Will this fault develop in other machines and if so how many ?

  • Kterrell13

    All the arguing is crazy. Most people are either playstation or Xbox fans. It’s a preference. If your an Xbox fan you will obviously find more faults with ps3 and vice versa. I’m sure both games are dam close performance wise. Just enjoy these awesome next gen systems.

  • panacheart

    These are very complicated machines and we all knew in the back of our heads there were probably gonna be problems.

  • Shane Hort

    Amazing and intrigued to see how bad, i mean how truly bad sony lovers want to bash the xbone. Even yahoos first two news headlines are written by sony fanboys mentining how ps4 dominated sales, which is in fact incorrect, they both sold over a million first day.

    • brad

      PS4 Fanboys will always bitch about what they can’t afford. I bought 1 xbox original 1 360 and they both work to this day (XBox original is nearly 10 years old) one Xbox one now. My ps2 was fine but I had 2 PS3 die on me. Fuck Sony, even if the systems ran I would still say fuck sony for the fact they fail to make new innovative stuff. They have crap of exclusives and the whole 200 million dollar hacking that happen to psn and got my credit card into compromised as well as keep psn down for 3-4 weeks. So tired of Sonys BS. Final Fantasy X3938394 is not worth sticking around with them.

  • blzzy_gie

    Most of the 1 star Xbox One reviews are FAKE click on the 1 star reviews and about 90percent are NOT AMAZON VERIFIED PURCHASE, now click on PS4 1 star ratings and about .90 percent ARE from AMAZON VERIFIED PURCHASE customers.
    This Friday the PS4 get’s released in Europe I would expect it to get the same treatment after this.

  • BBCrisp

    The thing that annoys me about store reviews for consoles (and some games) is that there are too many people that jump in just to praise the ones they like or bash the ones they don’t before they’ve even used them.

    Just ran through the pages and saw that only 96 of the current 301 “1-star” reviews for the Xbox One on Amazon are from verified purchasers. It does look like a lot of people are having a disc drive issues, though. I wonder how big an issue that will end up being.

    • Theycallmestan

      There were people on gaming websites (in the comment section) stating they were going to be giving one star reviews to the “enemy” console.

      If you look at the X1 there is no way it will have the problem it had witht he 360. A disc drive problem is common with electronics. There were problems with both consoles, and thats to be expected. As long as its not in 30% like the 360

  • Ricky Spanish

    $400-$500 for a device imported from Japan that lets you play video games at $60 a pop? What happened to the good old days when you could pass the time with nothing but your imagination and a syringe of heroin?

  • Theycallmestan

    First-Consoles are going to have problems at launch. You have a fail rate with any mass production of a product. With social media, everyone will know about it.

    Second- you have to take the Amazon reviews with a grain of salt. If you go read through some comments on websites there were quite a few people stating that they will be giving one stars review to a console that they were not going to purchase. They have the need for some reason to bash the console they see as there enemy. These comments were reported to amazon and they were looking into it. The PS4 had around the same number of negative reviews as the Xbox one last week right after the PS4′s launch.

    I have friends who bought the PS4, and had no problem, and I purchased an X1, and it is working great.

  • Loki

    Most of those reviews are just trolls and regurgitating what they’ve heard.

    Xbox one sucks bigtime.. I had bought it for my nephew.. it takes forever to load games.. it is super confusing to do just the simplest of tasks like “add 2 players” for Forza 5, it forces you to sit through minutes of storytelling movies that I could give 2 cents for, the graphics are not as advanced as the xbox 360 – in my opinion- not worth the $600 price tag -xbox day one edition, The Kinetix camera is always watching you!! .. and doesn’t turn off.. and it is listening to you as well .. 24 hrs!! WTH!!? It has glitches. To upgrade simple add-ons or advance to a new player / levels.. microsoft wants to charge your credit card..WTH?!? And .. to log in.. as a regular player (not xbox live) everyone must have an email address!! – So I had to set up my 9 & 7 yr old niece and nephew with an email address so they can play 2 players and log in?!- they even asked- “Uncle.. what is an Email Address??”.. It’s pure NSA control over the loyal gamers.. pure BS!…XBOX ONE SUCKS BIGTIME!!– ITS NOT WORTH IT!

  • MDS

    “40% 1-star” was never true. It’s always been in the low 20s. For example, today it’s 18.9% of review are 1-star for the XB1. In comparison, it’s 20.6% (1009 of 4890) for the PS4.

  • Adam

    Serves the idiots right, they bought an Xbox…..
