I really hope the components are of high quality and the hardware lasts really long ?

Any idea how long PS4s lasted for folks without throwing any issues?


4-6 years and counting for many here..

I think it will depend on usage and care to some extent. Thing is with electronics you can never predict. Just prepare yourself that when it goes kaboom, you buy the next mid-iteration (PS5.5) :P

Mine probably still works, my DS4 is busted and don't want to buy a new one.

The PS4 disc drive died and it had some random restart issues( mostly because of some problem with the power button which was some touch based thing, they removed it in later iterations )

But overall the hardware is solid, these are all minor things, nothing like console being bricked or not being able to play it's own games like how KC PS5 is having.

Same as others, my ps4 didn't break or did anything weird. Base version I sold after getting preowned pro from an IVG member, sold that when I got ps5. Both had worked excellent.

The only thing that broke was the DS4 because I destroyed the Triangle button playing Yazuka 0

Launch model. Mine has no power or eject buttons. Removed the contacts for both. Everything else works peachy. Og DS4 lasted till 2020 before it gave out.

Yeah come to think of it, it probably is, proper rental places have to shell out a lot more per disc Co. Pared to retail price because they're also paying for rental rights for the discs. At least thats how it used to work back in the day with dvd rental shops.

Not sure how the copyright laws are here but in the US, first sale doctrine allows you to do whatever you want with discs you buy - rent, sell, shove it your chimney, etc. 

Not sure about copyright law in India.

US has gaming rental services like GameFly that charge you a monthly fees for renting a fixed amount of games, these are physical discs of course. It’s perfectly legal. However, account sharing isn’t.

Rental service requires a license, the official distributor here can otherwise shut your shop down. It has happened before. You can rent it to your friends/family etc, but if you run a business the distys will come knocking in asking for a cut. Hence the clause "user agrees to not use this license for commercial use".
