PlayStation 4 users are claiming that they are receiving messages that are preventing them from using their consoles.

In several threads on the r/PS4 Reddit board, users are reporting that they are receiving messages through the console’s messaging application that are hard locking their consoles. The stories all follow a similar pattern: users receive a message, their controllers and sound outputs fail, and resetting the console results in continual error loops.

 

While the exact cause is unclear, many users in the Reddit thread have likened the exploit to previous messaging exploits such as this one from 2015 in which a unique string of characters could crash an iPhone. In describing the PS4 message, one player wrote that it was merely a question mark in a box, suggesting that the malicious messages cannot even be displayed by the PS4.

 

Some users have claimed that doing a factory reset will delete the message and fix the problem, while others have claimed that the only way to fix the error is to delete the message using the Playstation mobile app or by logging into the account from a browser and deleting the message that way.

 

It does seem that the exploit is purely text-based, so changing your PlayStation messenger privacy settings should prevent it from happening. You can do that by going to Account Management in your console Settings, heading to the Privacy Settings submenu, and changing Messaging settings to “Friends Only” or “No One,” meaning that only your pre-selected friends or no one at all can message you.

Kotaku has reached out to Sony for comm

ent but they did not respond in time for publication. We will update this story in the event that they do.

So this question has been bothering me for a while so going to ask the question.

 

Is there any fix for the Recent Activities feed on PS4 not showing the text from the games you play (example GTA Online - You have claimed bounty worth XX dollars.)

 

I am curious to see what activities are shown for RDR II (since most of my friends are playing it already) but the text is missing so I don't know what the activity is?

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

 

Trophies and playing a game for the first time are fine, it's just in game activities don't seem to display right.

From what I know, showing or not it is depending on the game to have that. That's first and I guess you're aware of that.

 

Secondly, you must appear Online in your Online Status and must be logged in to PSN.

 

Third, in your privacy settings, you gotta set the Game Activity (or whatever it's called) to friends/everyone.

Original Post: 26 October 2018:

 

Aha!

 

Thanks, I think that might clear it up so I'll see if the feed show anything from now on, I've also changed language from English (Great Britain) to English (USA) as I read over on PSN forums that might

also affect the recent activities feed, typical PS4 and random unexpected issues with things that were working fine before software updates!

 

 

New question:

 

So does anyone know when we might see the first Playstation 4 software update this year or has the PSN ID name change already been enabled as can't seem to see the option but

I know some users got access as part of the beta and they said it would be early 2019 for full access...

 

Also does anyone know of a 100% way to stop video skipping during Shareplay recording as I am told it may be down to the amount of data per game but not sure what the limits are?

Great to see Hitman: The Complete First Season on Playstation Plus. I downloaded it all yesterday, and it's a very good game with lots of ways to take out the targets. I still need to do all the levels Suit Only/Silent Assassin and also on Professional Mode. I bought a few of the episodes when they came out, but never got the last two episodes, so I'm very grateful for this.

So, does anyone else have the PSVR headset? Been playing since christmas. My library just keeps on growing. I absolutely love it.

Still not there. I don't think it's something to look forward, at least at the state they were announcing. "Changing ID may cause you to lose access to blablabla..." sounds very irresponsible and yet they still have the guts to plan a $10 charge for further changes.

You mean you're like recording a game you play from Shareplay feature and in the record you see skips?

 

Well, I don't know, I never used Shareplay either. But to think about it, let's say your PS4 is both streaming the game down and broadcasting your input to your host's console all while recording the footage. Since PS4 isn't NASA computer :miranda:, I guess it's just understandable to get hiccups in the process of recording while doing all that stuff.

Is For Honor worth downloading? I've heard mixed things, and it got a bad reception on Launch.

If it’s ps game of the month just grab it download it and play it.

 

if you don’t like it, delete it no harm no foul.

I'd like to hear more about your experiences with it. It seemed like a lot of people thought it was a gimmick for a long time, but more and more people are starting to sound positive about VR. I still haven't had a chance to try it.

Well, it's certainly f*cking mindblowing at first. VR is on another level. You play games in a whole new dimension, one that flat gaming will never be able to deliver.

 

Are there tons of gimmicky titles out there? Of course, but by now there are some amazing quality titles out there and experiences that are unforgettable.

 

After more than 1000 flat hours in Skyrim, VR managed to reignite my love for the game. White run suddenly looks so f*cking huge. Everything looks huge, and I can view the smaller things from up close. I'm actually in Skyrim!

 

Astrobot is a whole different beast. Built from the ground up for VR, it simply could not be delivered in any other way. 

 

RE7 is so f*cking terrifying, I don't know what else to say.

 

It's not just a gimmick. It's a whole different dimension of entertainment. Every game I played feels like a portal to another world.

 

HOWEVER.

 

VR to me feels like it's "not quite there yet". The graphics still hold it back a bit.

I'd love to be able to play games with VR but because there are no VR glasses that uses a single lens instead of two separate ones I won't ever be able to use them until they do as I am mostly blind in my left eye except for shadows due to a bad work injury a few years back and as more and more games are coming out with VR versions and some in the future may be VR only and I have a feeling in the future most games will be VR leaving folks like me out.

This weekend (FEB 15-17) is free access to RDO and GTAO - allegedly. I wanted to get into GTAO to check out the new cars but was redirected to the buy PS+ page of the PS store

While you do need both images for a truly 3D visual experience, I'd expect that VR would look like the real world looks, to you.  You won't get the 3D aspect but you'd still get the immersion and head tracking.  Have you ever tried PSVR?

You're right it does look the same as real world for me while my depth perception is lacking it's not bad, I have no issues driving or anything like that but I did notice a change when it comes to trying to catch object tossed to me I often miss them unless they come towards my right side and playing video games have become a little harder for me.

No, But i've tried the regular VR Goggles you use with your phone and the screen was split only giving me the right side of the screen while the left side was cut off and since I couldn't see the left side fully it made it pointless for me to use as I needed both sides and i assumed that's how they'd be with PSVR so I don't want to spend a ton of money for some VR that I won't even be able to use propertly.

 

I have a feeling once VR becomes more mainstream they'll come out with someone for people like me like they have with controllers for people with hand issues and ect.

It's been forever since I've played on my PS4 and I can't remember something so I just want to confirm.

 

If I buy PS + and set my console as my Home Console the PS+ will be activated across all accounts on that PS4?

So I just ran into a beyond weird issue.

 

i finally bought RDR2 and I was installing the 2nd disc when all the sudden it just stopped and went back to the main screen and put a pause symbol on the game and wouldn’t open back up.

 

i though maybe it was my internet p, nope connected though maybe it was my WiFi so I switched to LANs, Nope so I restarted and it let me open it but after few seconds it did it again.

 

out of idea I googled, Install keeps pausing and everybody said Clean The Disc[/b] and I though but my disc is clean, I never touched the back but I ejected it turned it over sure enough no marks or smudges but I can a cleaning cloth over it, put it back in and all the sudden it’s working now with10 minutes left.

 

im glad I googled it first as I was ready to delete and start from the beginning.

 

……………………………

 

i do have another issue though regarding PS4 Remote Play and 2nd Screen Apps

 

For some reason when I try and connect my PS4 it doesn’t find my console not even when I do it manually, I get the message Cannot Register PS4^/i], Anybody elseever had this issue? Did you resolve it? How?

 

Again I though it might be my internet so I tried both wireless and LANs but same with both

Is there a way for me to change my primary PSN account?

 

I made a new PSN account and I want to start over using that but each time I turn off my PS4 that account gets deleted and my main account always signs in, In fact I lost almost two hours of game play of RDR2 because when he account got deleted so did my game save

Account gets deleted only if you're signed in as Guest. Not exactly 'deleted' just removed from your PS4.

 

Go to Change User, select New User, Create New Account or Login to Existing Account, fill in the details.
