Yes.

 

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.

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.

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.
