Stalled downloads. Crashes while games are suspended. Occasional freezing. The PS5 has some great games, and it’s been fun to finally get some hands-on time with PlayStation’s future, but the next-gen console has had some weird issues.
Watch Dogs: Legion, the first game I tried on Xbox Series X, is working without Quick Resume and doesn't autosave very well. I lost progress a lot of times. Buggy Covid New Gen Start, I guess.
This is very relevant to this article.
Don't worry about it too much, Sony is literally known for stability updates
I guess I’m grateful? Only issue I ever had was Spider-Man Miles sound not working but that was easy fix. It’s crazy you see all these reports...I just haven’t had any issues at all
Weird. I've had no issues with Legion at all. Saves.. Quick Resume.. all works. Valhalla tho.. Quick Resume only works when it wants to. Saves are fine tho. Hope it ends up working on your end soon.
I thought quick resume was disabled on legion?
Well it is the only console with Bugsnax.
Its kind of not buggy, in my experience.
So true, I had a couple crashes, but nothing to serious. But leave it to kotaku to stir something remotely negative about any Sony system.
I would consider my console crashing as "serious" but maybe its just because I'm not a sony excuse maker like most on here.
The way you lot defend these companies is borderline cultist. I honestly don't think some here would defend their own family or friends the way they defend these corporations.
Crashes of any kind are serious and need to be called out so devs (1) know about them and (2) prioritize to fix them. Demons Souls crashed once on me immediately after returning to the Nexus, with 10,000 souls. If I lost those souls or the crash happened on an autosave corrupting it, I would've been one angry Taco that night
"a couple of crashes" and that's not serious? There shouldn't be ANY crashes what so ever! Your fanboy is showing.
@majorlazer Its terrifying. Who needs plugs when your fanboys are this smug
“I would consider my console crashing as "serious" but maybe its just because I'm not a sony excuse maker like most on here.” My ps5 has never crashed. A game crashed once. So that’s pretty much as good as any console I’ve owned for the last decade.
@stevej336 I see your point and I agree. It’s the risk we all might potentially face when buy any type of hardware at launch. The problem with this article is the inbreeds at Kotaku is spreading this news like it’s the majority of the people that have a PS5 are having these issues and I’m just telling you guys my experience that I’m having with my console. You guys must be a special kind of stupid to think that intentionally wanted my system to crash. It clears that you and the other five assclowns didn’t even read this article and choose to harp on my one comment about “my experience” with the PS5 and never mind all the other commenters that shared their experience saying that they didn’t have any issues with their system. Next time read the article.
I have 3 crashes in a row playing Spiderman Remastered on my PS5. Hopefully nothing too serious, but I wouldn't just brush that aside dude.
I put my PS5 into Rest Mode with Astro's Playroom in the background. When I turned it back on, no matter what I did (turn off PS5, play different game, etc), everytime I played the game it would just load indefinitely but other games worked. I deleted and reinstalled the game and now it works fine again. At the very least, Rest Mode is a bit buggy.
Yeah, I just learned to make sure all games are shut down before I logout the the PS5. I had only one issue, and it was a PS4 game on an external HD, Rage 2 froze (the game, not the console itself) and I had to reboot the system, The game updated and I never had the problem again.
Kinda bug and kinda snack.
No bugs so far in my experience.
me neither but it seems that 6 people tried your PS5 and got a lot of problems, judging from the disagrees. What a sadness... -_-
Same no issues with mine. Playing valhalla and dark souls
My experience has been fine. Not a single problem.
Is this before or after you install Bugsnax?
I think you mean your PS5 is kind of buggy. Can't really speak for everyone.
I have not experienced none of this at all. My experience has been flawless. Maybe the xbot fan boys that switched over are the ones with issues 😂😂
Probably. Lots of xbots commenting on ps5 crashes and post history tells the story.
Didn't know the PS5 is a fan of One Piece :D
Every youtuber so far i’ve seen has a near prefect experiance with the ps5 with couple of errors here and there ofc that’s normal.
ACG and ReviewtechUSA have had problems.
ReviewTechUSA is horrible
@Babdook7: Opinions of their content have no context in regards to a console not working.
I haven't yet encountered a bug, but I have heard that sleep mode has some issues? Won't be using that until I know it's fixed
Seems like it only happens to people using external storage. If you don't have that I wouldn't worry. I haven't had standby issues on mine and I don't have external storage.
I used the external storage, since i reinstalled some big games i left the PS5 on all the night in sleep mode. This morning i turned it on and all was fine. So it's random or just for some hdd model or... i don't know, all fine with mine :O
I’ve got an old external hard drive that was plugged into my PS4, I just plugged it into my ps5 and it’s worked perfectly. I’ve been following the news of problems and honestly it sounds like a bit of a lottery. It’s a fact that in the early day of a new generation the yields in manufacturing aren’t amazing, theres always a few defective machines that slip through the cracks. I really hope everyone’s new consoles work out for them though, it’s so excited buying in a launch but maaaaan! I would be gutted if mine died
I should be knocking on wood when I say this because I'm usually the person that has issues with things like this, so far my PS5 experience has been great besides a few small quirks that need to be ironed out in my opinion. I started my PS5 up yesterday and went to the online shop to look for sales, I quickly noticed that the PS5 shop has no deals page where you can see everything that's currently on sale. As I was looking at games I noticed Doom Eternal is on sale for $20, I scooped that shit up right away and was happy as hell. I go on the PS mobile app later and look at the deals page and see that the Doom Eternal special edition is also on sale that comes with the season pass for $30. I go to check to see what the season pass goes for by itself right now...$30.... I totally would have bought the special edition if I knew it was on sale, wtf yall?! Its little things like that and missing features like themes that I don't understand, does Sony think they are Nintendo now. Dont get me started on $50 expansions and $70 remakes... Besides that nonsense my PS5 experiencehas been good.
Other than being appalled at the inability to upgrade my PS4 Spider-Man to the remastered version without buying the 69.99 version of miles morales (got the 49.99 just miles morales one in the end, a wild price for an expansion) I’ve had little problems. Miles morales I’ve found to be a bit buggy. Was a bit sad there was no quick resume feature like on the Xbox but quickly realised there’s no need for it at all, the quick loading from the cards on the dashboard is so so so crazy fast it’s amazing. I’ve not been as wowed by the sound or the controller as much as I expected but I think that’s just the games I’ve been playing maybe? And I wondering if my Bose quiet comfort 2 headphones maybe don’t fully support the 3D audio? I would’ve thought they do though. Spider-Man looks great, as does everything really, hdr seems seriously cranked on everything, all the purple items in apex look a completely different shade strangely. I’m very happy with my ps5!
Funny how we now need...more stability. Guess my girlfriend relationship is more stable than PS5. But my Ps4 is more stable than my girlfriend.
Not to mention, i got one of the several units with a bad USB A and C port on the front. Thats what i get for early adoption though. Luckily right before my two year warranty from best buy expires i can likely exchange this for a slim model.
Several units? You are the first that I have seen talk about this issue. You could also contact Sony. They seem to be sending brand new replacements before you even need to send your defective one back at this time. Reviewtechusa has a new video explaining the whole process his editor went through to get his replacement.
Don't know if it's a controller problem or the ports, but I've seen a lot of videos on reddit of people being unable to charge their controllers or having problems with their external hdds.
Yeah, unfortunately it is one of the well known defects for launch units. Tried charging controllers from them, tried charging my phone using them, and even tried using my Steel Series Arctis 7P and none of them actively received power from either of the ports. When i say one of several units, i just mean that i am in the 1 percent of folks out there, so i am not saying this is normal by any means, but people are experiencing this if you just take a look around the web. Now on the other hand, my rear USB ports work just fine, so this isn't all that bad, i just need to use those instead. The way i look at it though, i now have a reason to use my warranty from best buy once PS5's have all of the Quality Control taken care of on units, which isn't a bad thing in my eyes. As far as reading disks and the hard drive goes, all of that works just fine, which is really all that matters. I also have a charging dock for the controllers which works completely fine. So really in the end, i can easily still enjoy my PS5 and avoid using those usb ports for now. Not a huge deal, just something i noticed after my buddy told me that his, on his PS5 were having a similar problem. So i tested mine out, and sure enough same thing.
A lot of hardware issues too like noise and unstable overclocking thanks to its variables frequencies on its cpus and gpus
Noise? None to speak of on my end, installing from disc ramps up the UHD drive - that's it. PS5 is pretty much silent and runs cool too.
Where's this unstable overclocking nonsense coming from? How is this overclocking? All PCs have variable cpu and gpu frequencies when they operate. That is not the same as overclocking. You do not know what you are talking about and you don't know how overclocking works after reading your comment.
I'm glad I waited now. I mean I would love to be playing the PS5 right now but these scalpers are untouchable. Highly doubt most people will get either PS5 or Series X for awhile until this COVID shit clears up and restrictions ease where they can ramp up production for both online and in store retail purchasing of these new consoles. There's no greater taunt than owning Spider Man Miles Morales Ultimate Edition (PS5) and the Dual Sense but having no PS5 to play it on. T_T
Thing is you're always going to get the voices airing their issues as they will be the only ones who have reason to comment so it seems like there's a lot of issues. When in fairness it could be 1 in 1000 have any issues but because there's a few comments it looks widespread. It's electronics, both consoles will have minor issues early on.
I love my PS5. But having purchased every sony console day 1, this is by far the messiest. So far since launch: - bugsnax hasnt crashed at all - Dirt5 crashes once every hour or so - COD crashes every time I try to start a zombies game, so i cant do that for now. It also crashes once every 2 or so hours playing MP - Controller wont charge using the front USB port - System hard crashed once - DMC5 has not crashed at all so far
Im having issues on voice chat, friend sounds like a robot and keeps cutting out didn't have an issue in ps4. anyone else have this?
I've got a mate that's the same - we call him Bender when it happens, but it also happened on PS4. We've all put it down to a slow connection speed on his end.
lol. after a few days of shit, its working fine now fixed itself. even warzone is working again
With everything happening in the world at the moment I think it's amazing it's as good as it is. Early days yet, lots of time to iron out any wrinkles.
My PS5 is all good no issues
I've had 1 crash on my day 1 PS5 and that's it. Hope Sony is on top of the issues people are having as well
Same for me. i had 1 crash with the system playing a game. Restmode is bugged so i don't use it for a while. Assassins creed valhalla game was uninstalled when i ejected the disc but i think it has been solved now because i found on reddit how to install it without problems. The rest of it works fine now.
Demon's Souls crashed on me twice immediately after i loaded a save. Both times the PS5 required harddrive error repairs, first was external and second was internal. On the second time, my saves were deleted, but luckily my latest saves were on the cloud. Makes me very nervous...maybe next time my system won't start back up? Sony needs to address this immediately.
Why are there always so many people in these kinda of articles saying things like "works fine for me" "ive had no problems" blah blah, as if to imply they're lying? Obviously there are some people that ARE having problems so let them be heard
Sometimes, people don't want to voice their concerns or problems for fear of being made fun of by the other side. But, problems don't get fixed unless they are made known.
Because it’s important to know how widespread an issue is. If one person reports it and 10 say they haven’t had the issue it’s telling....as opposed to one person saying they have an issue and nobody else saying theirs works fine. Not saying it shouldn’t be fixed but it helps give an idea to how rampant a problem is. I don’t think anyone is implying they’re lying.
Surely EVERY problem no matter how widespread should be targeted to be fixed, no?
It’s not to imply they are lying it’s to share our experience with the console end of story
cant even play mortal kombat 11 ultimate just drops of wont installed on ps5
Nah, it’s not. Even though everyone who doesn’t own one try to spread very few cases over internet.
One thing I don't like about ps5 rn is it will always be outputting sound to my headset whether it's on or off. It doesn't automatically detect that it's off so if I don't want to use my headset I have to manually switch to hdmi. Other than that I haven't experienced too many bugs so it's been good for me. The ones I did experience tho were annoying but I get to play demons souls so I'm happy.
Not buggy so far
Hey, impossible, for sure it's buggy!! See those disagree? They tell you it's buggy!! All the PS5 are buggy!!11!!1!! /s Sorry but sometimes the people here make me laugh. I don't really see why they disagree about what you said.
Maybe the disagrees are from those of us that have come across bugs? I’ve only had mine since Thursday (UK) but have already had Spider-Man Ultimate Edition crash. No biggie, I sent the report to Sony however I never had a single crash with my PS4 or PS4 Pro.
@Si-Fly Disagrees like that are senseless. I can understand if someone disagrees with "PS5 has no bugs at all" or "Bugs don't exist about PS5" and so. Here someone said "My PS5 has no bugs for now". If you disagree with that, it means "No, i disagree, your PS5 has bugs". As for my sentence, i understand that people can disagree for different reason, since i state something debatable. But his sentence? It's grammar and logic here. Everyone knows why and who puts those disagrees.
