I haven't gone through every disc I own yet, but I've found one that won't play. Feel free to add any other titles you find that won't play to this thread. Mods, could you please pass on this information to the appropriate people. Thanks.
Title: Star Trek Into Darkness
Symptoms: Gets stuck on Title 2 and won't progress any further. Nothing is ever displayed. Skipping chapters/titles is disabled at this point.
I had the same problem with this disc, and one other new release playing back on the PS3, it might of been World War Z or the last Wolverine
It seems it is some sort of Cinavia like verification code that is needed for playback via a PS3 [suspect the PS4 as well] , this only seems to become available once a store update download has been done to your console, or at least conection via the internet so the disc can verify it's not a copy.
Problem is, depending how long since you visited the store, is if the PS3/PS4 will think your console hasn't got the latest update, as it doesn't always ask you to wait while it downloads updates till you can enter the store.
Try it again, but make sure you are connected online before loading.
It should search for the movie site to verify that it is a original disc and allow playback.
In most BD packaging you get annotation that players should have latest update. Blu-Rays ' title screens are more software than DVDs' ever were (and even some DVDs had issues with certain players). With that, comes risk of incompatibilities. I'm sure future PS4 updates will address these problems.
A thread like this can be valuable to people like Sony, as common failures can be identified, and solutions implemented.
They say patience is a virtue, but hopefully I won't have to sit through this every time I want to watch this movie.
VERY INTERESTING !
It would seem from your reports and others, that some correlation of usage practises [Using a previously verified copy of a Bluray movie on a PS3], that it's usage is obviously being tracked by Sony.
This PSN info logged into the system is lagging when trying to use the same disc in the new PS4 under the same user name, hence it won't work until user info is updated to the new [PS4} console to allow playback.
I don't know about Big Brother, but SONY is definitely watching [recording ] your every move
