Well, that is disappointing.
Warframe has it's own update system that happens in game. Myself, my friend, and someone else in the PS4 launch thread have had their systems locked up when updating the game. I had to hold the power button in for 10 seconds or so then reboot, it checked for errors, rebooted again and I'm fine but talk about a scary few minutes. Let the game update without going to the UI.
Game checks for update
Starts to download 290mb update
System locks up entirely
I have tried shutting system down and trying again and I have tried deleting the game, re-downloading, rebooting PS4 then launching the game and trying to update.
Avoid trying to play Warframe for now.
I had to pull the plug, but everything was fine after that.
Question for those who were updating the game, did you have any other downloads in the background?
On day one, I had about 4 or 5 downloads going. Kept getting booted into the dashboard when I tried to play a game. Then with Injustice, the game severely lagged during stage transitions. It was so bad that the game would pause for a good few seconds to load the next part of the stage.
Im guessing its because of all the downloading because the game works perfectly now.
No one bricked their PS4 updating Warframe. It just crashed.
someone should email the devs or something because they will not know about this until 4 people brick their PS4's.
I think people should be more careful with their language, especially at this new machines / new gen time. All to easy to create a scare, and unduly worry the less technically proficient.
Last gen and it seems this gen consoles have a tendency to fall over, and often. It's when they don't come back from a hard restart - that's when it's a real problem.
On PS3 when I downloaded DCUO i had to boot up a seperate ingame update screen. On PS4 all I had to do was hit the download button it pops up on my games tab, downloaded, installed, and then when I actually started the game it just took my to me character select screen. The same is also true for Warframe, and Blacklight (though I have yet to actually start either of those yet).
I thought it was pretty damn great that I did not have to sit through the update screen for DCUO, I wonder why Warframe is causing issues for some.
Same for me, except 7%.
Mine freezes about 9% into the update and then soon after freezes my entire PS4 - even if I don't exit to UI.
Holding down the power button didn't work at first, but did after several tries. So, don't unplug the power unless you're tried the button at least a few times.
This just happened to me. I exited to Ui no problem but when I went to close the app, it locked up. Held my power button down for five seconds, it beeped and lne the light is fading in and out on top. Still locked up and I'm scared to unplug the power. Help
