Sony Playstion 4 Update 1.5 Instability; says EA

12 posts in this topic

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.

I don't really like EA (at least the EA Sports side of things),  but figure this would be a good heads up for the early adopters thinking that there is something wrong with the hardware (when there isn't)

So the bugs in EA games are Sony's fault? Forgive me for not believing them right away.

 

I'll wait to see what Sony says.

I agree...  But with the "Socially Connected" world we live in... A spec of an issue (or non issue) becomes magnified beyond belief...

The "non-responsive connections between the player's console and their TV screen" part of the message might be related to the HDMI issue reported earlier in a small fraction of the production units? Maybe that problem is more far reaching than first anticipated?

 

None-the-less, I didn't expect any launch to go smoothly. Here's hoping Microsoft's XBox One is released without a hitch like this... { cross-fingers }

This is EA, it's always someone else's fault.

It happens sometimes. I remember when a FW upgrade made "Uncharted" freeze. The update came out with perfect timing: when I was starting to play the game!

EA now says it was a mistake.

UPDATE 3: EA has removed their statement about the firmware issues and said the statement was a mistake. So it?s still unclear what this issue is related to.
