  1. Performance Issues Mar Sony’s PlayStation 4 Release

    Sony may have sold more than a million new PlayStation 4 gaming consoles within 24 hours, but a high number of complaints have prompted the technology giant to release a guide for dealing with glitches. Among other things, users complain about a “blue light of death” persistently flashing and interfering with game play. Sony says that the new hardware’s failure rate is but 0.4 percent, and the glitches look unlikely to hurt current sales, but intense competition for gaming supremacy between the PS4 and Microsoft’s anticipated Xbox One ensures any performance issues will receive extra attention.
