Sony has announced that a new PS4 firmware -- 2.03 -- will be released tonight.
Just fix messaging.
I'd like the incredibly slow download speeds fixed. It was great until 2.0 released.
I thought that was just me.I put my console in standby cause it downloads quicker there now
It's not just me and you it's a lot of people. There's a pretty big thread on Gaf about it also.
if you have 2 downloads or less the speeds are great. Just make sure you pause everything else. If you're downloading overnight just leave everything alone. I had no problems d/l LBP3, FC4, and GTA V and all the patches in less than a day.
@Nitro- so im not going crazy??! I was like why df does it download faster in standby I thought it was cause alot of ppl were dwonloadin the update but it still at the same speed
Well i'm glad i don't have any problems with download speeds.
I thought I was the only one lol...I was ready to blame everything on time Warner Cable I thought they were cheating me out my 30 mbps lmao
change the primary and secondary dns settings in the ps4 to 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, went from 5 hours on 3 downloads to less than an hour on each
Slow speeds could be on your end. You may need to configure your router, do some port forwarding, chaNing to a static ip address etc. Only took me 25 or so mins to download all of this month's ps+ games over 35 gigs of data.
I dunno, having to wait 8 days for a "delete message" command to complete is far worse than waiting another couple minutes for a download.
I only had trouble downloading DA:I, and I like to think that its EA's servers..
have zero issues with download speeds I download at 10mb/s or there abouts.. Messaging however is a joke since last few updates and needs fixing. Its clearly a backend issue and I think a protection layer is causing it to stop DDOS attacks.
I have zero download speed issues. You guys using wifi? I downloaded injustice (20gb) secret Panchos (2gb) and their updates patches in around 10-15 minutes. I'm in Houston using xfinity 100 mb Dl. Friend in Toronto is using the same service and package and finished downloading secret Panchos in a couple minutes in party chat last night. Now messaging on the other hand has been jacked up since last patch. Hope they get that sorted.
Another tip, if possible with your router DMZ your system. DMZ, Demilitarized Zone, is on many routers and what it does is forward all traffic by default to a set device first. In the simplest terms this usually reduces your NAT type from NAT3 to NAT2 or NAT1 (depending on the router) and can also bump up your speeds by lowering latency from the router (the router isn't taking any extra time to "route" traffic to your system). Also, NEVER use wireless if at all possible. No matter how good your router is wireless connections will never beat wired ones. I have a 5th Gen AirPort Extreme and my PS4 gets 1/10th of the speeds on wireless that it does wired and that's with the system less than 20ft from the router and only two walls to contend with.
34 mins to download a 200mb update? On an 8-10mb connection too. That should take two minutes.
My download speeds have been faster than ever since the update.
@nyctophilia13 That's like telling a blind person you can see quite well.
Well said. Messaging has been way too laggy for me and my mates since launch and I honestly haven't even seen many (if any) articles bringing it to light. People need to speak up about it.
Well my messaging worked perfectly until about 2 months ago and since then it takes a minute "not literally" to send and receive messages.
Slightly Off Topic: Just finished reading through those comments posted on that twitter account and I never knew there were so many whiny, spoiled rotten, dumbasses posting negative comments about a system update. Are there really that many @ssholes out there?
Aren't you whiny now?
My comment has nothing to do with being whiny, just an observation. Mirror + Whiny = nevin1
Lol, u are in every corner either whining or bashing though:/
Welcome to the internet, a cesspool of negativity where human beings, if you can even call them that, communicate their most vile and disgusting thoughts and feelings.
Dude, yes, take a look at ANY game with online issues. ANYTHING ONLINE. These people have nothing better to do. Please realize most of these people are kids 12-18 with a lot of time on their hands. Sure, some bitching is warranted but these people have no dignity. I mean, seriously.
Fireware update? Not to troll but console gamers get excited over the smallest but common things. Took a year to get youtube lol and wallpapers. Lol everyone when crazy. Can ps4 gamers save music on the hdd yet? Smh. But when games are only 30fps no complaints? People were fighting over grass in gta and ignored the dips below 30. Its a poor state for gamers and everyone is comfortable with it. I like console games but hate the corps.. I am glad i got a pc. And this is no me saying master race or anything. If only everyone had a pc and funded games like star citizen. Ubi and ea could die but we would still get battlefield. What a world it would be. Corporations have to much control. Console gaming is getting worse and worse. And I grew up on consoles btw.
I'm a PC gamer too, but I spent as much as on my videocard as I did my entire PS4 so not really a fair comparison. Hard to beat the value of a PS4, not to mention the exclusives, community and PS Plus.
@jacksons98 Bubble + for you sir since for being a PC gamer who rejects the need to "trash talk" about consoles and recognize consoles as valid gaming platforms..
yet, another - "stability" update. MKV soon or nah
That's stupid to tell them to fix just one thing when the system has various issues that need to be fixed. Be patient so they don't have another 2.0 incident.
Yeah, surely one full year is not enough to fix messaging. smh
Yeah, that must suck for you because I don't have messaging issues lol I rather them fix the error messages that everyone experiences.
Just stop whining.
So psn will be down tonight?
Here is hoping for some surprise features. .. is a ps2 emulator too much to ask for :(
Wont happen because of money, I'd even pay for that app if they ever release it, that how desperately I want to see this happen!
They can't try to sell you PSNow if they do that, so they won't.
Just fix the got dang messages that's all I need :(
That's weird. Since v2.02 my messages load in an instant.
Lucky enough to not experience slow downloads, but I use Ethernet for my Ps4
if u havent experienced slow downloads on ps4 you must have crap net to start with. im on 152mb fibre and i get about 30mb of it from psn,xblive gives me max over ethernet,really really annoying and its been like that in last 2 houses i lived in and on ps3 when i had that.
I just tested my connection. Connection Speed Download is 50.9 MBPS Connection Speed Upload is 10.3 MBPS So no, I don't have crappy internet, if this is considered crap, well hey I guess my internet is crap net to start with. f
I have 35/6 and i do not experience any problems either. Maybe i should make blind assumptions like you did with admiral.
Lol, you guys moaning about those speeds. Try living in South East England, I currently get 10mps Download and barely 1mps upload. Sounds terrible but I've never really had a problem with it to be honest.
I think the way the ps4 connection test reads Internet speed is capped. On xb1 my connection usually reads over 100 mb download where as my ps4 says around 52 mb download. Go to speed test website on ps4 browser and it says around 100mb.
@admiral 50mb is ok speed these days but from that 50 how much do you get through psn? on psn i get about 30mb on my 152mb line and its not good enough imo. @utalkin2me 30mb is slow imo and when you are used to downloading 2gb in under 2 mins its a bit annoying when on ps4 it takes me 15-25 minutes for that file size. my wording wasnt really what i meant either i was meaning "must have slow internet to not notice the downgrade in speeds in comparison to normal use".
Super! I don't know why some people dislike FW updates, they usually make things better (more stable), and the process of updating is much faster than it was on PS3. It's all good :)
Yeah! id love the messaging fixed too its slow on Vita and PS4 but PS3 is consant! no wait time or anything
Ah yes.. I needed my fix of stability.. Be sure to throw in MKV support while you're at it.
Yes! there's a new AAA exclusive title incoming for PS4 called FW 2.03 "Greatness Awaits!" /s
Ahh yes finally my messages fix is here. I just downloaded it and it looks like it's working now.
"PS4 firmare 2.03 coming tonight" I think what they really mean is the Planetside 2 prep is loading tonight and they'll announce at the PlayStation Experience show this weekend that PS2 will go live next week.
Hopefully it will fix the hdmi sound bug ... Edit : apparently not! http://community.eu.playsta...
I had not heard of that from anyone I game with more seen it myself. Well there's a sound bug in dragon age inquisition but that's all for me so far. That goes to show that just because it's not happening to you doesn't mean it's not happening.
Have had it since the 2.0 update , the hdmi on that tv no longer works with any other input device, I feel the ps4 is to blame,it's fine when using on another tv though...
@horsehead I will try to switch my xbox one and ps4 hdmi ports on my TV when I get home to see if it works/does not work. To be clear, it's like the PS4 and that hdmi port on your TV became soulmates and now only the ps4 works in that specific tv port?
We can only hope...
Pronounce it with me now! "PS4 fir-mahhh-ray two point oh three." Spelling's a beast.
Just in time, my new PS4 will be delivered today.
Playing Diablo 3. They better not screw anything up.
