EA retracts statement regarding PS4 firmware update 1.50 causing game instability

Friday, 15th November 2013 20:41 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

EA has said the message posted on its EA Help website blaming PlayStation 4′s day-one firmware update causing game instability issues was “posted in error.”

Update:

Speaking with Game Informer, the EA spokesperson recommends layers visit Sony’s website for answers about connectivity and other issues.

Original story as follows:

PS4 firmware update 1.50 is to blame for game instability, according to a post on EA’s help page.

While it appears EA has pulled the page due to the link giving us an error and we can’t seem to get a cached version of the page, Kotaku pulled the entire statement you see below.

“Sony has released a firmware update for the PlayStation 4 that is required for many features on the console. However, this update also results in stability issues while playing games on the system. This affects all games on the PS4, including EA titles, causing crashing/freezing and non-responsive connections between the player’s console and their TV Screen.

“Unfortunately since it’s an issue with Sony’s firmware, it requires a new update to fix it. Sony is working to resolve the issue as quickly as they can. They will update their System Update page as new versions are made available, and we will keep this page updated as we find out more.”

Apparently some games are a bit buggy or unstable once the firmware has been downloaded and applied.

PS4 was released in North America today and hits store in Europe on November 29.

    What a disaster!!

    Boring launch (poor advertising), bland exclusive launch titles, hardware issues, initial PSN errors, and now a patch that screws it all into a nice beta package.

    “Instability awaits”

    … yeah because EA are really trustworthy, they never make mistakes or buggy games.

    Oh wait:

    @23 I realize everyone’s having a little fun at Sony’s expense right now, but no need to be unfair. Yes, XBL has had an issue or two here and there, but overall it was very reliable and hasn’t had many issues. PSN has been a pretty consistant nightmare and they really need to make this generation a reset and gain a reputation for reliability. We all remember how long it was down after the credit card debacle. I’ve been happy with XBL since launch, no problems for me.

    And “posted in error” =/= “incorrect.” You can’t claim to know whether the info was correct or not unless someone from EA admits it was “incorrect” as opposed to “we shouldn’t have said that.” That may still happen, I don’t know, but that doesn’t change the fact that SO FAR they have blamed Sony and not themselves.

    #25 “a pretty consistant nightmare” Really? Because that’s not the PSN i remember, since the hack scandal. The hack was not optimal for Sony, but it was clear they learned a lot from it and PSN has been running great ever since. Sure they do some maintenance from time to time, but those maintenance doesn’t effect online play, only the store, which people always forgets every single time and are surprised they could play while “psn was down”.

    PSN with PS+ has been way better value then Xbox Gold for years now, unless you crave party chat, which never will be possible on PS3.

    #26 You are sure? No you are not, you have no clue and are just making wild speculations.

    #27 Yep, just like Microsoft has done.

    Every console has it’s launch niggles be it hardware issues, unoptimised software or just lack of decent software.

    The PS4 will explode next year, there’s so much potential there for another PS2 and even that had its launch problems. I haven’t found a console launch exciting since the Dreamcast (obviously) I just feel most console lack that Sega magic.

    I’ll pick up a Ps4 and Xbox One when the big guns start coming, I’ll stick with Wii U this winter though.

    An EA representative responded to a request for comment, telling us that the help message was “posted in error.” EA recommends that players visit Sony’s website for answers about connectivity and for the latest updates.

    They don’t want the statement on their website anymore but they are still directing people to Sony. It seems EA hasn’t changed their stance, just how much they are willing to say.

    @Erroneous by no shape or form is a network like PSN being down for more than 4 hours for “scheduled updates” considered “running great”.

    PSN goes down randomly at times and scheduled at other times for periods of up to 12 hours. That’s not “running great”.

    And if there’s ZERO problems (no downtime etc), then it speaks volumes of how shitty PSN is in comparison, considering XB1 has a worldwide launch.

    Not saying they won’t have problems though. But it would be a pretty bad deal for Sony if it goes down with no problems next week.

    If there are zero problems then I will… Kick the flowerpot outside. Because that shit would be whack.

    But it’s impressive that EA would put Sony in this position. First they make the statement. That’s fair game, just telling people to call Sony. But then they pull it, and turn the whole thing into a genuine story.

    “Aliens crash in Roswell” – Okay, that’s crazy. “GOVERNMENT DENIES ALIENS IN ROSWELL” – HOLY FUCKING SHIT, LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS FOR HALF A CENTURY AND NEVER LET IT DIE!

    Things to think about:

    1. LB leaves and immediately Nephilimator walks in. Coincidence?
    2. LB always has an issue when it’s Nintendo or Microsoft fanboys on the assault.
    3. LB has yet to ever comment against Nephilimator (<– this dude's posts are way more out of line than anything here)
    4. LB always puts up a front to seem like he hates trolls, yet his forum posts are usually geared toward baiting trolls (most recent example)
    5. LB’s poor English grammar and punctuation is similar to that found in fanboys.

    It’s so far beyond incompetence, and it would be funny if we didn’t know they were eventually gonna bruteforce people into adopting it.

    $500 dollars = 720P/20 FPS, DVR soap operas, scan QR codes, dance around in front of shit camera that uses 10% of the GPU time slice, magic horse ride kinect adventures, list of shit goes on, PRISM watching you all day through shit camera, 2 exclusive games since you have no first party studios, every third party game will run like shit compared to cheaper PS4.

    $400 dollars = 1080P/60 FPS, better online, free games monthly with online, better controller, better hardware design (no 35% failure rate like failbox), and better exclusives.

    Not really sure I understand what makes this a disasterous launch. You people take the significance and impact of 90% of this stuff way too seriously.

    PSN went down for what? 90 minutes? A statement that EA made was redacted. So what? 99% of people playing the console won’t know anything about it.

    Where exactly is the “disaster” in all this?

    #92 11 months ago
  93. G1GAHURTZ

    @86, 90:

    Yeah, MS definitely have the well known ability to mess things up.

    However, I think their main problem is usually just being out of touch with public demand.

    They somehow get an idea that ‘this is what people want’, then they stick a high price on it and ditch it it after a year or two.

    That goes for Zune and GFWL among other things. It’s looking like being the way that Windows 8 RT is going, too.

    Obviously, that’s not what happened with the original Xbox or the 360. There was a danger it could happen with the original X1 idea, but I think that there were enough gamers willing to put up with the DRM to keep it going.

    Anyway, the point is that their issue is usually one of misreading what people actually want, rather than a technical one (RRoD asside).

    Azure (the MS cloud) is looking like being the future of the company, if they really want to move into being a ‘devices and services’ company like they claim, so I just can’t see them not being ready for the X1 launch.

    I could be wrong…

    @88 You better hope a bricked PS3.5 can beat an Xbox One because that’s what Sony is offering, $400 bricks.

    $400 – For a PS3.5 that offers the same exact experience as the 10-year old PS3 with slightly better graphics. Same XMB interface with no way to sort your games or view them in an organized manner. Same network infrastructure, offering PS2′s peer-2-peer online technology (the inability to change your user ID just proves they are using outdated network technology). Exclusive AAA games that have so far received HORRIBLE reviews. HDMI ports that are broken. The inability of adding an external HDD (even the Wii U supports this feature!). Indie games that belong on the PS3.

    Plus for $60 more, you get a camera that lets you see yourself on TV as you wave your arms like and idiot and shake the controller, all in 240p @ 15fps. They are probably using the same EyeToy from the PS2. What a pathetic camera.

    ^^^ What a steal! Sign me up for one of those! ROFL

    @96 I have nothing to hide. You can read through all my comments and you won’t find anything wrong. People are just mad we are having fun at Sony’s expense.

    Stephany, did you end up buying a PS4 or do you plan to wait it out?

    @97 Okay cool. I just worry sometimes when I see massive threads. :D :D

    No, honestly, I will probably wait until it’s been out 6 months to a year so that all possible hiccups will have been remedied. I never buy any sort of electronic system until it’s been out a while.

    @98 Wise move Steph! Seems like some people are getting DOA systems.

    Example:

    ^ Not exactly an accurate measure. People that receive faulty machines are obviously going to complain via a review. The rest who have perfectly good units, are going to be busy playing them or wont even bother to review.

    I’ve also pre-ordered a second machine from Amazon, probably wont give it a review…

    wtf went down in here…?

    anyways, i got my PS4 yesterday, my sister & i waited in line like all day. i worked my ass off for it, & when we got home…the shit wouldn’t even turn on. lol like at all…its so bullshit. i waited 3 hours on Sony support for them to pick up for me, they’re gonna send a box to my house & have me send it back so they can fix it for us free of charge.

    i was expecting network issues…but how the hell do you manage to ship out broken consoles? i didn’t stand in line freezing my ass off all night before launch day to have to wait til Christmas to actually USE my damn console.. -___-

    i hope the Xbox people have better luck next week though.

    This pretty much sums up the PS4 launch perfectly.

    @104. Glad you enjoyed it. At least we now know why retail PS4′s weren’t at E3, Gamescom, EuroGamer & TGS. Sony obviously knew they had issues with some of these systems and didn’t want to take any chances putting these things on showroom floors. It would be like Russian Roulette. Push the button on the PS4. This one works, this one works, this one bricks, this one works, this one bricks, etc… lol!! I haven’t even opened my PS4 yet. It’s still in the box. I’ll be getting a 2yrs extension warranty on mine before I open it. lol!! Glad the PS4 comes with a 1 year warranty, but getting ahold of Sony’s Customer Support is a pain in the butt. I suggest people stay off of PSN until Sony makes an announcement to the press/public concerning these issues. Download the firmware to a USB drive and load it from there. Good luck everyone.

    Can’t say I’m surprised by this situation. It was bound to happen, as to every launch version of anything these days.

    Thanks again for beta testing the console for me, see you at the PS4 Slim release! :D

    @109 Good thing Sony has loyal fanboys who are willing to pay $400 for a brick.

    @115 It’s bloody depressing to watch, frankly. I’ve pretty much given up on commenting here. There’s no point.

    @115 Don’t you mean “+ infinity x infinity”? That’s the way the little kids say it in the AT&T commercials.

    @116 Why do you keep commenting about how bad this place is? If it’s so bad, why are you still here? I actually get a good laugh reading and posting comments. If you think this is a serious place to discuss video games and drink tea, then you are mistaken my friend.

    You should go join Joe Mushy in the coffee lounge and discuss the meaning of life.

    @118 Calm down sir, Sony is aware of the situation and is working on a solution.
