    The ps1, PS2, and PS3 were all massively flawed hardware designs that broke en masse.

      What do you mean by that? Hardware wise? Except for the optical media, I can’t really see any hardware flaws…

        The PS had weak plastic laser eye rails. Prolonged use warped them causing laser/disc misalignment, so you would have to often play with the console up side down etc to try and adjust for it.

        The PS2 has the disc read error, lost multiple class action lawsuits over the design flaw.

        PS3 had the yellow light of death. Design/manufacturing flaw like the Xbox red ring of death.
