It's usually the case with .01,02 and 03 etc updates, features will go in updates such as 5.10,5.20 or even jump to 5.50.@charliemathers
Of course, it's only a .01 update, nothing major and even less than minor@charliemathers
Somehow it took me 2 minutes to type my post and I got ninjad
There's some shenanigans going on here@mont348
except for the major bit where the ps4 now wont work and keeps telling me it cant find the update file and now i gotta buy a new ps4 xD@gavsta72
It has broken my PlayStation pro.. it won't even turn back on.
Same here! Aways enters safe mode and tells me cannot turn on!
That is almost an exact copy of what happened to me.. to be fair I did notice a lot of the time is be kicked from games and it would come up 'error report I believe and I was attaching videos to sony to show them... it mostly happened with fifa so I just figured EA were morons lol.@varundbest10
yeah mine just says that the update cannot be used
Same thing just happened to my brother@GoD_Of_WaRXD
can you please explain a little more detail?
I downloaded the update (which was fine).. and it was restarting the PlayStation to install it,and it cut off and now I can't turn my console back on, like at all I've tried to ring don't support but they're closed.. yet their website says they're open 🤔
im scared to update now
I don't even know what to do.. I'm hoping sony send me a new PlayStation because it's their ***** up, and update to improve performance should not break your console.@XxNuKeXEnVyXx
Try disconnecting the system from the mains for at least 30 minutes and try again.
If that doesn't work you have at least 2 weeks warranty remaining as the PS4 Pro released on November 10th last year,a repair or replacement will not cost you anything at all.@GoD_Of_WaRXD
do i have to do it or is it not mandatory@GoD_Of_WaRXD
