Rule number 1 about new consoles. Always wait a year before buying them.
I had issues with my PS3 when I bought it. And I told myself I'd never buy another console so quickly again. It was an expensive lesson learned.
And in response to how many people, as far as I know it's only a few people. So I'm thinking it was a bad batch somewhere.
