Battlefield 4 Premium Having Issues On PlayStation 4

Angie Santiago reports from SpawnFirst: "A number of people have reported problems with their Premium purchase on Battlefield 4 on PSN. For some, it shows that they’ve purchased Premium but the “P” that’s supposed to show up next to the Premium option on the main menu isn’t there. The “P” shows up when it’s installed and ready to use. For others, it says that it’s downloaded and “waiting to install”, but they aren’t able to install it." (Battlefield 4, PS4)

This is horrible for anybody who plays and enjoys the game online. I feel for you. I'm a single player only gamer, but I know I'd be upset if I did want to play online and there were issues for months. God bless all of you waiting for this game to play the way it should, hang in there I'm sure it will eventually happen and EA will reward you for your time and patience with free maps or something.

Until then, remember you still have Killzone, Blacklight to play for free and Call Of Duty, if that's any consolation. At least there something to hold you over until everything is working peachy keen.

lol how's that lawsuit going EA :P
Aleithian  +   642d ago
Happened to me. I also noticed that as of last night I would periodically lose all upgrades I'd unlocked. The only way to get them back was to quit and reload the game.

Premium having issues across the board, but only on PS4!

Ripsta7th  +   641d ago

Select china rising and choose version, click on free, now download your 2gb update
hduce  +   641d ago
@bub16 I think you have to jump through too many hoops to be able to download it but I figured out. Even with the free download codes it's almost like they'll try to trick you into paying for it.

And grass is green etc.

EA + DICE: listen to your customers before releasing BF5 PLEASE!!
Hicken  +   641d ago
Is this what's called a hit-grabbing title? Or flamebait? Or both?

Battlefield 4 is having problems on all platforms. End of story.

Oh, wait. Where are all the Xbox fanboys claiming spawnfirst only makes the Xbox look bad?
ChubbyLover  +   641d ago
So this game is just one giant buggy mess ever since it came out, I don't own it but the articles that come out for it, im surprised anyone still plays it...
Sm00thNinja  +   641d ago
Hard to believe BF4 was butchered so bad by EA AND DICE but the reports are true. The PS4 version is unplayable with lag, connectivity issues and freezing in abundance. I'm almost ready to throw in the towel I'm so frustrated today
MasterCornholio  +   641d ago
Call me paranoid but I believe that the PS4 version being broken was done on purpose.

The PS4 is the easiest console to develop for which is why I highly doubt that it has more issues than the Xbox One version.
Sm00thNinja  +   640d ago
Nooooooooo you're paranoid. The ps4 being easy to develop for has absolutely nothing to do with bf4s terrible net code on all consoles. EA knew the state if BF4 prior to its release that's been made clear
cyclindk  +   641d ago
Does buying premium make the base version play better? Didn't think so... so, I'll pass
SaffronCurse  +   641d ago
Psychologically people might think that.
Maxor  +   641d ago
I own BF 4 on both the PS4 and the PC. And while I prefer the PC version due to the graphics and mouse aim, I haven't noticed any issues with the PS4 version so far. I played for almost two hours yesterday and did not experience a single disconnect or crash on the PSN.

As it stand, this game is perfectly playable now and it is easily the king of the FPS genre. There are issues here and there but nothing game breaking.
cyclindk  +   641d ago
What sort of connection do you have? Fiber?
SaffronCurse  +   641d ago
Has nothing to do with connection.The game is a fucking mess because it was half-backed by yours truly.

The Netcode is atrocious regardless of speed and the constant glitching and being kicked from a game is getting rather fucking annoying (for me anyway)I could get into a couple of conquest games until I keep getting booted during the final minutes.
cyclindk  +   641d ago

Agreed, I was just wondering because apparently he is experiencing no issues... so I was looking for SOME factor that might be affecting his experience. It certainly couldn't hurt to have ultra fast internet.

I have it for the PS4 and have no issues whatsoever. After the last patch everything has been working fine for me and everyone on my friends list
Ace Killa 08  +   641d ago
For ps4 owners, try this if you purchase premium and still locked out of China rising or prompted to buy/download it again.

In the playstation main menu, and ensure bf4 application is closed or not running, go to settings-PSN-license management or something. Refresh/renew and start battlefield. It should prompt that "congratulations for purchasing premium" or "China rising unlocked" prompt. It worked for me.
kopicha  +   641d ago
so the console fix the problem and not EA/DICE? this is lol
Ace Killa 08  +   640d ago
No this is for ps4,as I mentioned it before, how ever it's nothing more than a troubleshooting procedure. This does not fix all the issues, obviously but you probably didn't know that.

This renews all the licenses for downloaded items on the ps4. Premium should have unlocked China rising, it didn't, I refreshed, and then the system recognized and mark as bought.

If you think about what it does you clearly would have made a better comment than what you said.
kopicha  +   634d ago
I understand what you are saying dude. I know that function within PS4 as well. I guess you cannot catch the joke in between. But nvm... it is not a big deal.
