Sony consoles have been extremely unreliable overall. PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 are all prone to a lot of issues. Shops had to stack Sony consoles to send for repairs, while Microsoft actually offered a real replacement service with UPS at home. From my experience, and even though I had to replace two Xbox 360, it was still better than the issues I had with both PS3 (fat and slim), where it took a lot of time to get replaced and was annoying as hell.With the 360 you have to take into account the RROD, and everything that went wrong, every generation SONY feels elite providing DVD, blue ray, potentially 8K graphics. Nintendo 100% takes advantage of creativity, and does it well. When they had Wii sports people went crazy.
If you want to talk about reliable consoles, you talk about N64, Saturn, Gamecube, OG Xbox. These are consoles that had very few issues.
