The PS5 Is Kind Of Buggy Right Now

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.

The story is too old to be commented.

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?

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.

stevej33613d ago

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.

Tacoboto13d ago

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.

mrsolidsteel2013d ago (Edited 13d ago )


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.

Yppupdam13d ago

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.

Kornholic13d ago

Kinda bug and kinda snack.

ziggurcat14d ago

No bugs so far in my experience.

Mr_Luke13d ago

me neither but it seems that 6 people tried your PS5 and got a lot of problems, judging from the disagrees.
What a sadness... -_-

Chronichero13d ago

Same no issues with mine. Playing valhalla and dark souls

potatoseal14d ago

My experience has been fine. Not a single problem.

SaveFerris14d ago

Is this before or after you install Bugsnax?
