March 14th – Today Fixya, the leading product Q&A destination on the web and mobile, announces the release of a new report that uncovers the top problems and suggests remedies for the most common problems ailing the Wii U, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Below are the major trends found within the Fixya Game Console Report: The Xbox One users are struggling most with a feature originally meant to set itself apart from the rest, the Kinect – whether that is commands not being recognized, the motion sensor technology malfunctioning or the Kinect simply not responding.
Among audio and visual problems, PlayStation 4 owners are having “blue light of death” issues where the normally white and solid console light blinks red or blue – a signal that your console will soon be shutting down unprovoked.
Although the problems have reportedly been addressed, a large number of Wii U owners are still having problems with the console freezing, along with a myriad of malfunctioning gamepad issues.
Below are the top five problems and possible fixes for each console in the Fixya Game Console report, and the percentage of troubleshooting requests that fall into each problem category. Nintendo Wii U Freezing—35% Gamepad —30% Internet Connection—15% Audio/Video —10% Other – 10%
