I am modelling a PS4 where I need to make a hole in the console that resembles the PS4 logo. I have tried Boolean difference, it works for P and S but not for 4. Knife project also does not seem to work.

Is it a modelling issue? I am not able to figure it out.enter image description here The logo and the console.

How it actually looks like, the P and S are only intersecting the mesh

The reason boolean difference fails on the 4 is due to non-manifold geometry. You can select non-manifold geometry with CtrlShiftAltM in edit mode. In your case, this reveals an unconnected face on the extruded version of the 4 (likely due to an extra edge before extruding):

I added an extra edge ring and merged the corresponding faces:

And then the boolean succeeds.
