PS5 Design Flaw New In Box

Reports emerged final week {that a} design flaw may irreparably harm PS5 consoles positioned in a vertical place, each these which have been in use for some time and people which have been saved for months model new in field. However, a follow-up report has now been launched clarifying there isn’t a proof that new in field consoles are affected by the problem.

Does the PS5 design flaw have an effect on new in field consoles?

The design flaw occurs when the APU seal has been broken and the liquid steel inside can reportedly grow to be uneven and even spill over time when the console is saved vertically. Initial experiences had mentioned that this design flaw may even occur with PS5 consoles which can be new in field and have been saved for a number of months in a vertical place, however now this has been declared to be false. Wololo, who initially reported the issue, has blamed “a critical misunderstanding on our end” and that “unopened, in-box PS5s” truly referred to “PS5s that had not been opened (the actual console!) by other repair shops prior to him”.

Despite this clarification, the design flaw may doubtlessly nonetheless be an issue for a few of the 30 million PS5 consoles which have obtained harm throughout use, or which have overheated. We have requested Sony for a remark concerning the allegations however they’d not replied on the time of writing.
