The sticker on the back of the console which states "Warranty void if removed." is actually illegal. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the sticker violates the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act which states that any manufacturer that charges more than $5 for their product cannot put repair restrictions on a device that it offers a warranty for. On April 9th, 2018, the FTC sent a letter to Sony, as well as Nintendo, Microsoft and Apple, who place similar stickers on their consoles and devices, giving them a 30 day warning to change their official warranty policies or face legal action.

Kazuya Sakakihara, a senior software engineer who previously worked for Sony during the creation of the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, left his name within a snippet of code used for the PlayStation 4's hard drive. The location of his name in the code is unusual, as names are often left in a separate part of code data for storing comment data, often in abbreviation or initials. However, in the case of Kazuya Sakakihara, his name is left in full within the middle of the data unencrypted, although with a minor spelling mistake.
