The PS5 hasn't even launched yet, but it would appear that one advance unit of the console has already died.

Just below, you can see a tweet from YouTube content creator Jeremy Penter, better known as ACG on YouTube. Penter reveals that as he was working through some troubleshooting with Sony support, his PS5 console died completely, and is unable to power on at all.

Penter goes on to apologize to all his viewers, offering to pre-order another PS5 unit and give it away in a competition to one lucky viewer. Additionally, he also offers to refund any Patreon backers who deliberately pledged support for his PS5-related content.
