Several news outlets have reported that this season, fake PS4s have been found in brand new console boxes. Whether this is due to theft along the manufacturing route or bad customer returns, it’s not a good surprise to discover. Thankfully, if you buy from a reputable store, it should limit the risk of bad merchandise and also allow you to do an exchange in case there is a problem.
A local CBS station in Boston first reported the news: Mass. Boy Unwraps PlayStation 4 On Christmas, Finds Wooden Fake Inside.
