A forum post published by users claiming to be Foxconn interns alleged that the PlayStation 4 was deliberately mishandled and sabotaged during the manufacturing process.
Several posts about interns sabotaging the PS4 during the manufacturing process had appeared on message boards in China. These post failed to attract attention until reports emerged regarding problems with the system followed by a forum posted on IGN.com by a new user claiming to be a Foxconn intern.
The post claims that the user, "qbroid," along with interns in the same position, made efforts to sabotoge the PlayStation 4 during the manufacturing process. "qbroid" reinforces his story by also posting claims made by other interns on how they deliberately mishandled or tampered with the console.
"qbroid" states that the sabotage was done in retaliation for how Foxconn mistreated them. The post said: "Since Foxconn are not treating us well, we will not treat PS4 console well."
In early October, it was reported that Foxconn was forcing student interns from the Xi’an Technical University to work overtime to assemble the PS4 or risk having their diplomas withheld. The allegations came a few days after Foxconn CEO Terry Gou stated that young people are interested in "easy and relaxing jobs" at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).
Foxconn is one of the largest manufactures of electronic products with clients like Apple, Sony, and Microsoft. It has also become infamous for its labor practices and working conditions that have driven several workers to commit suicide.
