This is way I said it’s not an exact science. The two other posts I quoted just from today are probably not hardware related. It’s nowhere near 10% hardware issues. It can’t be that high. There would be overheating and bricked consoles like crazy.
Well in my case it was the dreaded CE-108262-9 crash both times, and both times it was while hot-switching games, while on the menu. I've heard this error might signal hardware issues but if it's only going to be a single crash every month or so I think I can live with that.
 
I've had Dragon Quest XI S crash my ps5 console about 10 times. Not just an error code either, but a green screen and the console shuts off completely. After pressing the power button twice the console comes on and says the ps5 wasn't shut down properly, etc. Not enough people playing the game to figure out if it software or hardware related though. A little concerning there isn't an error code and it just shuts down.

Should make votes public. I'd bet money some of those saying they have issues are known Sony haters who don't even own a PS5.
Yup. Sad.
All Xbox fans have a faulty Ps5, so it is hard to ascertain the true percentage.

Its probably typically 1 %, that get returned, same for all consoles,. but ps5 is the only console where we get threads on GAF
it’s one of the great coincidences of our time. It’s like it’s being made up.

If you don’t have issues with any other games I would think it’s the game. Any other game crash your system?

I don't think I've used it enough or in enough interesting ways to detect the hardware failures I see in here. I'm splitting time with the XSX and I skipped out on PS4 so have an entire generation of games I'm trying to catch up on.

What I'm hoping doesn't happen is that 6 months down the road when I'm really stretching this thing out it starts crashing.

Had a crash in Demon's Souls fighting Flamelurker (while losing :messenger_grinning:), had to close the game and after reloading I was just at the fog door.
It's being alright after that, no noises, no fan sound, pretty happy.

I'm happy to open the voting results up to been public, if a mod wants to do that.

If genuine "hardcore" PS fans really think undercover xbox agents are voting en mass we could have a similar thread for the Series X/S and see how it stacks up. I've got a feeling it will be made clear there will be alot less issues than the PS5 is having personally.

Glad you're not having much issues, you must have paid a lot if you bought in Rio.

Why don't you tag or PM one or two of the Mods and see if they will open it up for you. I'm sick of seeing the usual suspects crying about Xbox conspiracies.

If Xbox only fans are bogus voting en masses then they're assholes, but if that's not the case maybe certain people will shut the hell up about Xbox undercover agents.

I wish EviLore EviLore in addition to banning political conspiracy theories would also ban all the never-ending Xbox conspiracy theories. 🤣 :LOL:🤣

I have noticed its only the Sony fanboys that seriously think xbox fans are buying PS5s just to complain or coordinating misinformation in threads to make Sony look bad or purposely lieing about the Series X been silent 😂. When ever evidence is presented they stick to the "well I don't believe it, my console is fine so everyone elses must be".

What also makes me laugh is if they truly believe that they must also think PS5 fanboys like themselves have higher integrity to not use such tactics and hence why it's always Sony that looks bad over certain issues on here. All these mental gymnastics to not have to concede maybe some things could have been handled better by their favourite manufacturer.

Big difference between a fan and a fanboy/girl. We all know who they are 😛

I think they are both about the same at around 10% hardware issue rate, which is just unacceptable to me.

Haven’t used it a lot but the last couple of times I turned it on I got some kind of database corruption repair bar - let it finish and it seems okay, but not a good sign

As long as you don't constantly trash the system I think you will fine. Your just annoyed with the coil whine. I don't get impression that you hate the platform.

The opposite is true I love it. Naughty Dog are my favourite developers in the world and I LOVE God of War, Days Gone. I think Spiderman and Horizon are great and the Duel Sense is probably the best controller ever made! Because of all this that's why the issue is so annoying for me because PS5 is my main platform. 😁

There’s a lot of people just like you. Bought a PS5 not to use. At least scalpers sell to people that want a PS5. I can’t understand buying one to shit on...oops, I meant sit on. You should have bought a different console if you’re not going to play it.

Terrible what your going but at least good PS5s do exist. I've seen the videos of people without the issue so hopefully you end up with a good unit. Well that is unless they asked the videos but I'm hoping that's not the case.

Spoken like a true playstation fan, At least all your Xbox followers like that it seems.

Is that 6 or 7 ps5 replacements you have had, we have lost count.

We all believe you,. really

Maybe anyone witha failure should post their PSN ID so we can verify they have been playing ps5 games, but you reported me for asking last time, wonder why.

Keep up your day job, its productive.

My fucking pro also sounds like a hairdryer when I play Genshin. Glad the Ps5 isn't nowhere as loud.

People do believe me because I have integrity, a 4 year posting record and a neutral approach to critiquing both companys. I didn't report you last time actually, you made a fool of yourself so let's not start again.

It would be so easy to show you my PSN but then I think why would I want to try and justify myself to you. It's a small angry world your living in, I'm surprised you haven't been banned tbh.

How do you hear what is silent?

I do enjoy the silence though.

To be fair I found it hard to record coil whine on my phone (though it sounded exactly like other videos of it in youtube). I don't require proof or anything/ doubt you but if you did want to a great test is Spiderman MM: 60fps modes as that tends to bring it out the most. If its silent there it will be silent in everything (outside of disc noise).

Your agressiveness to posting ps5 fails tells me otherwise, your actions give most users doubt. But carry on if your crusade makes you happy.

These threads go xbox fan outrage, baiting then report or try to ban. Its pathetic.

Why wouldn't he trash the system. It's a natural reaction to something like that. The fact is that it happens with everything, it's just the nature of things, I bought a new tv, only connected it once, of course my reaction was trash talk the brand.
When my x360 rrod it was even worse lol, it's a bit juvenile I know, but difficult to hold back.

There's videos of quiet PS5s on youtube. I don't think they were asked.
Thats not what I asked? There are also videos on coil whine PS5s on youtube?🤷

So your PS5 isn't silent?
Overall yes, even though when the room gets a but warm PS5 stays 100% silent and PS4 used to be slightly "hearable".

This is my 2016, dirty PS4 Pro (never cleaned it, I never clean my consoles internally anyway):


Are you able to do the same for your PS5?

geordiemp geordiemp come on mate upload a video?

You guys feel no way to call people out so show us how "silent" your PS5s are 🤷

And there are videos of PS5s without coil whine so it can happen.

Unless you're telling us not to believe someone like Hostile_18 Hostile_18 because he didn't post any videos of his issue?

It's up to you to pick and choose what you want to believe in. I personally believe that there are PS5s with coil whine and PS5s without it due to the videos that I've seen.

Eeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwww

What kind of shots do I need before touch that PS4?

Home maid used to turn it on accidently, so asked her to never clean that area as I find out it's on like after half a day or so by spotting the blue light. Also because I used to download games on rest mode due to slow internet before upgrading to fiber internet.

How slow was your internet before? I still have memories of my 56K days and those sucked.
