Sony is in some serious hot water, with the /r/technology subreddit seeing countless posts in a thread titled "(PSA) Sony removes 90+ pages thread on their community forums with users reports on input lag issues with 2016 Bravia models, any new threads regarding it instantly locked--amid holiday season".

There was an original thread created on Sony's own community forums, but it was closed - the second thread was locked after 5-10 minutes, and the third thread was "instantly deleted". The post from 'GivingCreditWhereDue' adds that "Any new threads regarding the issue are getting locked".

The issue? Sony's new 2016 line of Bravia TVs aren't ready for 4K gaming... with the post saying "as their flagship models have really high levels of input latency. Sony advertises their x930D bravia model as best fit for the PS4 Pro, but users who actually have it face a sever disadvantage when it comes to competitive and even casual games like Battlefield".

The company promised an update for their 2016 line in October, but it still hasn't arrived. GivingCreditWhereDue added that "Sony is trying to censor any bad press regarding their 2016 TVs for the holiday season, so I want to get the word out". Well consider the word out, man.
