PS4 front scratched

25 replies 1947 views Edited Nov 18, 2013

I may be crazy for worrying about this, but my PS4 arrived with what appears to be a scratch or gash across the PS4 logo itself on the frontside. I know it is just cosmetic damage and the system works fine, but I found it odd. Does anyone else's PS4 suffer from something similar? I tried to post the best pics I could of it. It is more noticable than these pics make it seem. It is mostly across the 4, vertically. IMG_2381.jpgIMG_2387.jpg

I mean I guess you could get a replacement since it had damage when you received it, however, it's definitely not worth the turn-around time to receive a replacement.

Yea, considering the other problems people seem to having, it would probably be looking for trouble to exchange a working console for something like that.

@Nerdboxer Dude, although it works fine, replace it and get a new one. If I coughed up $400 for a brand new device, I expect it to be in absolute perfect condition. If I ever had this happen to me, I would demand a replacement.

Not doing so is equivalent to having a brand new, lets go with LG 60" HD/SMART TV with a huge slash across the screen. Will the TV work, yeah, will it look nice, hell no.

Take the smart route, get a replacement. You bought it with your hard-earned money, and you deserve to have the brand new console you paid for to be in mint condition.

If it works, replacement is not worth the risk, if your that bothered get it restored, wont cost much at all.

You should also mention to people that this image is magnified a couple times. When looking at the system in person, that logo is no bigger that the first section of my thumb.

It's a miniscule scratch. I honestly wouldn't care. My PS3 cost me $618 and was scratch prone out the box!
