4.50 Update Causing In Game Lag

Since updating to 4.50 on my PS4 yesterday, I have experienced terrible lag on all my online games. No other device in my house has trouble connecting to my internet, just my PS4. This has never happened prior to the update. My PS4 uses WiFi only, no wired connection. Has anyone else experienced this? I've tried resetting the console to default settings, no luck. I might go out to buy some Ethernet cables but don't want to spend the money on an issue which will hopefully be patched soon.

I have been experiencing this also.  Just started yesterday after the update installed.  Makes games completely unplayable.  Hopefully someone finds a fix or this issue is solved soon.

Appears to be a real problem: https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/5ypp3f/online_games_feel_laggy_after_450/


And you have to ask, what's the point of beta's, if they don't catch such a huge bug.

Blame the user's who don't use the appropriate bug reporting tools rather than posting in the beta firmware forum complaining about issue's.

It would surprise me if all the people affected in the beta, at least some of them didn't report it correctly. But it also shows that Sony needs people who are closer to their users. Why don't they have 1 or 2 people who are active in communities like reddit or in here, which has the power in Sony to inform the correct back channels of such problems.

 

I'm sorry, but it's a bit to easy to move the blame onto the users. This problem should have been caught by Sony in the beta.

I think it's a bad idea opening firmware beta's for all it should be kept in house,beta testers and invitational none of this sign up nonsense for all.

 

The bug and error report tool was stickied in the 4.50 beta forum for all to see and I was under the impression not many bothered using it.

I agree, the current beta is to open and invites to many people who doesn't really care, while leaving behind people, who would actually have tested and reported back.

I think bug reports would be dealt with easily with the current beta tester team rather than thousands or even hundreds of thousands sign up testers.

 

Keep it smaller and the firmware development team can keep track of bug and error reports a lot easier.

Your right mont, but not everyone was as ignorant . I mean I wasn't invited to the beta to test it. But I assumed Sony would have in house testing With the beta testing rather than rely on people who just wanna be first in stuff.

Problem with in house testing they are not likely going to have access to network equipment the general public have.This is where the beta testers and firmware sign up testers come in,I bet for every 10 users who complained about wireless issues only 1 or 2 submitted a bug report.

It appears only Wifi users or a percentage of Wifi users are experience lag since the update,it's buisness as usual for those that connect via a far superior ethernet connection.

Yeah it just sucks because wifi is not a plausible solution for me long term. My connection location means that i need wifi or will have to run a cable every time i want to play. They need to fix this. Fast.
