Yeah. Your PSN account works on PS3, PS4, and Vita, and your one Plus subscription is valid on all three platforms.

Short Version: My PS4 bricked.

Long version: I picked up my PS4 from Best Buy on Saturday but I wasn't able to use it. The time I had available to attempt to download the 1.50 update unfortunately the servers were down or too busy or whatever so I couldn't do anything with it. The next couple of days I was either working or doing other time consuming projects.

Today was the first day I had free so this morning I fired her up and went to get the update going. It downloaded fine then finished the install and then boom. Nothing. It began pulsing blue light and no video was going to the TV. It kept alternating between a black screen and a snow/pixelated screen. I went online thru my PC to IGN and looked up the blue light fix. I went thru the steps and nothing worked. In fact, it ended up alternating between a pulsing blue and pulsing white light. Neato huh?

This sucks. lol. Good thing though is I purchased a protection plan from BB and took it back to the store. They said they are returning the console to Sony for "repairs and/or investigation" as to the reason the update failed. Then they took all my info and when they get the next batch of consoles into the store they'll call me and I get first dibs on a new system. The rep there told me I was only the 4th person to have this issue. Lucky me

I won't be able to try out my PS4 until Sunday or Monday so I hope mine isn't bricked. I got mine off of Amazon with no warranty of any kind....

EDIT: It arrived today at my house so the suspense is killing me! (Cause im not at my house until next week lol) But I have faith!

The PS4 comes with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty.

With the low reported failure rate I was sure surprised to see mine bust. Best of luck to you.

Manufacturer warranty from Sony is one year.

Ya you have a year warranty from Sony. But it won't brick. The reported number so far is .04% the likely hood of you getting one is extremely low.

Yeah I have alot faith that won't happen. Its browsing certain sites on the internet such as Kotaku and PlayStation forums this negativity is getting in my mind. But I'm trying to be prepared just in case for that slap in the face!

So the bricking/blue lights are caused by failed update attempts!?,What causes them to fail?..Bad server connection or what??

The PS4 just never fully powers on (or will shut off randomly and then not power on), it has nothing to do with updates or servers. The pulsing blue light is what the console does as it powers on, and it turns white once it is on. The bricked consoles never turn white and send no signal to the tv.

Sony have not said what may cause it, but it's obviously in the manufacturing.

Are there any known ways to fix it ourselves if it happens?

Not the blue light, no. Bring it back where you got it, to a Sony store, or send it to Sony.

The issue only seems wide spread because of the internet. Sony reiterated again this morning that it is effecting less than 1% of PS4s. Which, granted, is around 10,000 faulty units roaming around, but is within the normal failure rate of new hardware.

What color is everybodys PS4 light when on? Mines white, but I think that it's supposed to be blue.

It's supposed to be white.

Blue is powering on. White is on. Orange is standby. Red is overheating.
