The PlayStation 4 officially launches today, and we’ve been hearing about a few issues with the firmware and system. The biggest issue seems that a few of the consoles are bricked, requiring some complex steps to reset.
According to none other than EA, there might be some problems with the newest PlayStation 4 firmware. EA posted a message on the official EA blog, but removed it shortly after. Here’s what the full message said (via Kotaku):
Sony has released a firmware update for the PlayStation 4 that is required for many features on the console. However, this update also results in stability issues while playing games on the system.
This affects all games on the PS4, including EA titles, causing crashing/freezing and non-responsive connections between the player’s console and their TV Screen.
Unfortunately since it’s an issue with Sony’s firmware, it requires a new update to fix it. Sony is working to resolve the issue as quickly as they can. They will update their System Update page as new versions are made available, and we will keep this page updated as we find out more
We haven’t heard about any issues with the firmware, and it’s a bit strange that EA posted, then pulled the message. It could have been a simple mistake. Or maybe there was some truth to it and they decided to remove the blog post before Sony made an official statement.
