It wont update to 6.50, error keeps popping up SU-42118-6. Nothing happens.
Same here even after unplugging. Error SU-30746-0
Hmm. From what I read on the error page you may need to take it for repairs for the blu-ray drive. Definitely first try to go thru all the safe mode options presented in this and other threads if you haven't.@Ang3lsD4ughtr522
I have no sound through both of my PS4 headsets since the update
Isn't this meant to be the "PSN ID change" software? or was that a failure so it's been scrapped lol
Nope once again theres been a bunch of Media and press sites some were "male cow pooing that garbage" about what was in this firmware... Making it up yet again, there has been a lot of misinformed users watching/reading some crap site online...
There was never PSN ID change in this firmware update of 6.50 even in the beta version...
Good of them to support Japan/Asia with a Nice increase of picture quality and not let youtube/Twitch TV have all the support all the time don't you think...
Seems like you guys forgot to mention that you can't play online because you're signed in but not really signed in as another feature of this update. Bravissimo!
Cant sign in to PSN because the software update 6.50 is failing and wont install@ohioscion
Remote play on apple devices only is strange considering it already works/worked on some sony phones with android. Also you can't use ds4 with it?
I wonder if other controllers work or if it's limited to touch screen only, seems kind of pointless if so.
Other MFI controllers don't have touch pad, Sixaxis, share or option buttons...
As IOS does not use them... the PS button is forced as IOS menu button and can't be reset...
They don't have to have analogue trigger support on games only digital On/off...
For most games that wouldn't be the end of the world, multiplatform games use alternative buttons on xbox or pc (with controller).
I don't know about the triggers, my xbox 360 controller on pc I'm pretty sure does or driving games would be horrendous.
Justs seems like a key thing missing, rendering the app rather pointless.@GraphiteGB
This is exactly why Xbox is better@ComicSans4147
Yeah especially XboxVR@BigGill14
