    Hi Guys

    Not be funny,but my experience with the new console has not been all good.
    Ive spent more time trying to sort out error codes then actually playing any games.

    Day 1 -plug in,switch on,set up.(PSN,Intialise,network etc)
    Insert Disc- Nothing happens,no disc icon-zip
    Step one:update system software,restart
    Now reads disc,game loads-hurray

    Day 2- no problems
    Day 3- no problems

    Day 4 - Power on console from standby mode
    Check system storage,stuck on 99%
    Only solution I could find,boot into safe mode,Initialize
    Just lost my save file with game 60% completed

    Start over,setup etc.
    everything seems to work
    updates download in background while in game
    quit game,install updates
    Launch game-
    Error-Unable to launch application

    Is this what ill have to get used to on the PS4 console ?

    Just to compare

    PS3-Insert Disc,power on,Play-Simple,straight forward

    My experience with the PS3 was:

    Day 1 - Power on system, firmware update, play game.
    Day 2 - Power on system, firmware update, play game.
    Day 3 - Power on system, firmware update, play game.
    etc.......

    There is an excessive amount of updates for Sony consoles and the slowness of their network drives me insane

    wifi or ethernet you use?

    as to OP...could be the hard drive inside your ps4 has been damaged, most likely whilst transported from warehouse to shop etc

    The system will only update once for the latest firmware. Clearly the OP has issues that he cannot understand, so perhaps rebuild the database or format to see if this helps? Otherwise you should ring Sony support.

    Mind if I hi-jack your thread?

    I've had my PS4 for only a few days and got Last of Us on disc. Is the disc supposed to spin during gameplay? I thought it only did a disc check once upon launch and then the disc stops spinning. The spinning is somewhat loud. Not sure how it works, can you install the game on HDD or does that happen automatically? Afaik the console only installed an update, that's it.

    Also it's strange that I can still buy the game on PS Store although I already have it on disc.

    Think it tales a while for the drive to spin down in some games, infamous for one

    Interesting, I think mine only installed a patch and then reads all from disc or something. Ill have to see what I can do about that.
