    I was hesitant about posting this article, due to a couple of comments in this thread, however some awesome PS3HaX members suggested i should :p
    After all it is important to make people aware of the faults with release day consoles and other retails which had problems due to Firmware updates.also i read theres a new BLOD (blue light of death) that is causing some system's to be sent back for repairs.

    out of millions you only have these. yeah im cool id buy a few if i could with no worries.

    failure rate is said to be 0.01% thats good enough for me. maybe if it was 20% or higher then it would be a cause of concern.

    I don't believe that :p
    Average for the tech is 15%
    PS3 one study was at 3% guessing it 8% odd.
    PS4 rate going with around the same.
