In what some are calling this generations RROD (Red Ring of Death) referencing Microsoft’s Xbox 360 launch, the PlayStation 4 appears to have it’s own variant of the illuminating error notification in the form of a blinking blue light.
This little blue light has lead to Amazon.com Review Bombing of the PlayStation 4 launch bundle which, at the time of writing, had 615 one star reviews but the overall four star rating was being kept aloft by the 1,460 five star reviews.
Sony has provided some trouble shooting tips on their site to help figure out what the problem is. There appear to be four possible culprits; TV compatibility issues, problems with the PS4’s power supply, problems with the HDD or an issue with another piece of internal hardware.
If all the trouble shooting steps still don’t fix the problem, Sony is recommending contacting them via the live online chat option which is experiencing shorter wait times that their phone support.
