Are there any known issues with the UK/EU PSN Store on PS4 at the moment?

I installed the PS4 1.6 firmware update today, and now the Store on PS4 doesn't recognise my PS Plus subscription - it just keeps showing me subscription options, so I can't access Plus content.

I don't know if this is related to the firmware, or just a coincidence with the store update today. It doesn't appear to be the PS4 system itself, as I can still play Resogun and Contrast, which I got for free as a Plus member, and I can play online.

The store on PS3 and Vita is fine and I can access the Plus offerings on those. The web store also recognises my sub, and I've had to use that to download Outlast today.

On the main home screen where your games are listed, I get no gold + icon next to my username (which I'm sure I had before), but I do if I go into the Profile section.

So far, I have tried:
- Powering down completely.
- Deactivating and reactivating my PS4 as my primary system.
- Restoring licenses.
- Rebuilding the database.


With the exception of rebuilding the database, I have tried each of the above several times, with no luck.

Anyone got any ideas/info?

After a bigger HDD for your #PS4? This drive has been tested and fits/works fine:

Hitachi HGST Travelstar 5K1500 - 1.5TB, 9.5mm, 5400rpm

http://www.span.com/product/Hitachi-HGST-Travelstar-5K1500-HTS541515A9E630-0J28001-SATA-6Gb-1-5TB-5400rpm~41229

I ordered mine yesterday. Today it's gone up in price by £15 or so. Might go higher as demand increases, so probably worth getting in ASAP if you want one.

Of course, you don't have to buy from them, but none of my other usual sources had this particular drive listed last night. I'm basically putting this here so that you have a make & model you know will work fine.

The official FAQ states that drives must be no bigger than 9.5mm high, but a PS4 teardown on a German site says 12.5mm will fit, so I wasn't sure. I was looking at a 2TB 12.5mm drive but was uncertain, so I went for one of these as the site says it's been tested.

Wow, what a bullshit move. Square-Enix have confirmed buying FFXIV on PS3 will allow you to get the whole game for free on PS4. No extra cost.

It helps that the game itself is absolutely amazing too.

Clearly another win for Ps4... Proprietary headset is the exact same reason I won't ever buy a Samsung phone, us sound people like to be able to use our own gear... Looks like Microsoft have learnt some bad lessons about locked ecosystems from Apple. Thankfully Sony have made those mistakes already and are making much more mature and less arrogant decisions in this field. Even happier about my Ps4 pre order. :-)

I agree with +Mark Holland the bigger selling features of TV connectivity and such seem very America centrist. Not really of much value here in Australia. And having recently moved house and waited 2 months for a Telecom to get my internet connected, the prospect of a always online ecosystem (yes I know they did a 180 on their DRM but I still see them pushing it out after they sell consoles) is a major nightmare. The ideas they had seemed good but the implementation left a lot to be desired. They forgot that a disc and a digital download have independent benefits and ignoring one to push the other along regardless of what their consumer base wants is retail suicide.

What do you want from PS4?

Here are my wishes: - - 399 price, no higher.
- Backwards compatibility for PS3, PS2 and PS1 Discs and Downloads.
- Awesome and ORIGINAL launch games.
- QUIET operation. Fan noise should be next to silent. PS Slim is still too loud when watching films.
- New designed Controller. Something that blends Move with Dualshock and can also be used as a media remote, I don't like having BR remote, keypad, move, navi and Dual shock all over my shelf.
- Better media handling (more than 1 folder deep when sorting media on HDD, I would like Artist - Album - songs and Movies - Genre - title for example). Caching large collections too, the XMB is painfully slow with large collection.
- MULTI-TASKING! PS3 has 8 core Processor yet we have to wait for updates or copying to be finished before doing anything else. Dumb. this shouldn't happen with PS4.
- Smaller design. PS3 super slim is the right size. PS4 needs this from day 1. The original PS3 phat was too big (although I prefer its design to the slim and super slim).

I've just realized something perplexing and terrifying at the same time.  I'm trying to get into online gaming on the PS3, especially for co-op play with Borderlands 2, but I'm finding that I'm terrified of playing online.

I'm mostly an introvert and I've been trying to break the ice and get a larger friends list but I've always blamed having a bad PSN ID.  How bad was it?  I'll give you a hint, "It's selling out like _ cakes".  Those last two words. 

Well, now that I've created my new ID: CutTheGrap, I've been making requests for coop partners in Borderlands 2 and now I'm beginning to be a little afraid of trying to coordinate things online.

Has anyone else had to go through something like this and how did you happen to work through it?

I feel ya +Chad Harelson, I rarely play with anyone else on my friends list mostly because I just do not want to be bothered with a conversation while I play. If I am playing a FPS like BF3 or something I will sometimes mic up but not always. I find that it can be rather difficult to find mature players as most people like to just get on the mic and ridicule others. When you do find someone mature enough to be worthy a friend invite, at least for me, its all good, but I just don't have the time to play with them later..

Don't know how true this is, but I've just seen it on Twitter. If you're in the UK and don't have a PlayStation Vita yet, it's probably worth checking out...

NEWSFLASH. HMV are flogging Vita stock off. Console (3G or WiFi model) & 4gb memory card for £99.99.

I have pre ordered the ps4 already, anyone else as excited as me? I have a major pipe dream that they will allow mkv support to this console finally. Or maybe reinstate Linux support on the legacy ps3, and allow xbmc to rock on it... The thought is a wow moment that would win them so many fans as a company that supports it's customers.

OK people. I am on the cusp of buying a vita. Can I get a "hell yes" or a "no way" to help me decide.

UK folks - if you didn't already know, you can get #TheLastOfUs  Joel Edition for £39.99 from Tesco. Usual price is £44.99 but enter the code TD-KFPW at checkout for £5 off.

I doubt you'll find it cheaper anywhere else.

I pre-ordered mine just before posting it, and it was still valid then.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night...unless it's morning and you need to wait.

On a related not, I've been singing South Park's "Marry F*#@ing Christmas" in my head all day today.
