I know it's complicated, but try to imagine that maybe most people won't filter through 30+ pages of a forum to find a single spot where Sony has acknowledged the issue. Now look at the reality that Sony's message is posted at the top of each page in this thread.

 

Really complicated, but it's there, just need to put the time in and understand.

So I have no Blu-ray drive at all like many others I have paid a lot of money for my digital content. So i'm stuck with no PSN access but luckily i can access my games. Now I have read how many other gamers g#have fixed this issue with a Blu-ray drive present. But what every gamer who has fixed the issue by opening up their PS4 has done is voided the warranty. So all those gamers  that have voided their warranty because of Sonys ***** have now lost their warranty.   That's one sneaky move by Sony

Yea, I don't think Sony does it intentionally, I just think they messed up with this patch and their support and communication isn't up to par.

 

I bought a ps4 because I had a vita, I don't think sony will produce another handheld so next time I'll just go with xbox again and hope for better support but I don't think it gets any worse than this anyways... 

 

And warranty... Well mine is like 4 years old so out of warranty anyways besides I already opened it up before.

Come on Sony, fIx this !!!

My ps4 pro is 1 month old and my blu ray player was totally fine 2 days ago when it spinned around my D2 disc so do not tell me there is an issue with it. 

 

Give us a Patch which fixes this crap or I return my ps4 and buy myself a xbox.

It probably wont be for a few days, i mean assuming it can be fixed by an update (Should be able to, if an update can break it why cant an update fix it?) because they gotta make one and test it...

I never tried Xbox before, maybe its time to buy one. If they dont fix this problem soon, PS4 will be the last one in my collection besides 2 n 3.

Definitely not solved, not by a long shot. I wish we would get more information or comments from Sony, not just a vague comment from a staff member in the forums.
