Hello community!

 

We have just launched System Software 3.10 on the PS4.  The main change in this firmware is the ability to follow verified accounts.

 

You can now follow verified accounts for people, companies and games from all over the gaming community, after you follow an account, you can keep track of their activities in the 'What's New' section.

Wait, What's a verified account?

 

A verified PSN account is an account that is verified as legitimate from Sony.  

 

Examples of verified accounts could be:

 

  • Community Managers
  • Game Developers
  • Game Producers
  • Game Designers
  • Development Studios
  • Game Series accounts

 

Gotya, who should I follow then?

Broken update, cannot install (SU-30641-4) and cannot download (SU-30638-0) apparently :Stupid:

EDIT: Rebuilding database allows me to download it again, hopefully will install now

EDIT 2: Refuses to install, with no error code just 'an error has occurred'

Don't you just love how the communities feature was set up without a simple search feature and now the very next update just ignores the problem all together and focuses on yet another update nobody asked for.

 

I'm totally okay with these new features, but at least have some common sense to make sure they're complete before moving onto the next one.

Okay, so u mean to say that u add features that nobody asked for, but didn't fix problems that already needed to be fixed.

For Examples: Suport more countries so that people like me could purchase games that they can't find anywhere.

i think @Envisager requested this feature because he tapped out his friends list.

 Start the PS4 in Safe Mode and run option 5 to Restore Database

 

If that doesn't work then try option 4. Restore Default Settings

 

Neither of these will format your hard drive so you won't lose anything important
