A new report suggests that FOXCONN workers who were treated badly during the production of the PlayStation 4 sabotaged the hardware in retaliation.
Acccording to an intern, due to poor working conditions, the staff felt inclined to take it out on the construction of Sony's next-gen console. Back in August, the intern posted the following on a since-closed thread, which has surfaced on the IGN Boards: "Since foxconn are not treating us well, we will not treat ps4 console well. The ps4 console we assemble can be turned on at best."
Here's a screenshot of the original thread.
