I think if firmware upgrade fails you can just boot up in safe mode(hold power button) and try it again.

1. He didn't do any troubleshooting.
2. He didn't post any evidence.
3. Made it seem like this was a widespread problem.
4. Instantly left.

Okay...

He's probably playing Battlefield 4 right now.
Considering how multifunctional those new consoles are, shouldn't he be able to play it, post simultaneously on neogaf, twitter, facebook, google+ and order a pizza at the same time?

The light on the ps4 is solid when in use, mine flashes on and off. isn't the red or flashing red of over heating.

They have directed me to re download the 1.50 firmware onto usb.

For those criticizing, if this happens to you (hope it doesn't) refer to this thread for help, skip past the "jokes"...

On the other hand I really don't understand why it's so hard for the OP to keep updating this thread.

EDIT: Op just updated. Thanks.

After playing a brief game of NBA 2k14 I quit and inserted my battlefield 4 disk. The system prompted for an update, so while watching the progress bar (Around 20%) my controller light turned from blue to white. Hasn't worked since...

Get those extended warranties ready! and SCEA on speed dial!
That's, uh, very weird.

Did you try pressing the power button for 30 seconds (or more) when powering up the PS4 to access recovery mode (if retail models have it)?

I'm confused. I thought you did the 1.5 update. Can you explain exactly what happened. Have you tried the safe boot?

All hardware have a failure rate. I'm sure few PS4's will mess up at launch too. Not really surprising

For the sake of OP hope it starts working. Less of a hassle for him/her that way

This is what makes me nervous about launch day - if you to to a launch event you know that, no matter how well a console is made, at *least* 2 or 3 people out of every hundred is going to have their nice new device crap out either immediately or in the next few weeks.

I look around and just hope it isn't me. ;)

COD 720p debacle
Low review scores on some first party games
DS4 problems (well that wasn't today but you know)
Now this.



I just read that Kotaku has similar issues, and the sample size is pretty small.
COD 720p is on the devs
Review scores are opinions
DS4 problems? The analog sticks? Those were abused on a show floor
"This" is still unproven.
