EA Blames PS4 Day-One Patch For Instability Issues

EA has released a statement today saying that the crashing, freezing and bricking in all PS4 games (not just EA's) is due to Sony's day-one patch.

Sony has released a firmware update for the PlayStation 4 that is required for many features on the console. However, this update also results in stability issues while playing games on the system.

This affects all games on the PS4, including EA titles, causing crashing/freezing and non-responsive connections between the player's console and their TV Screen.

Unfortunately since it's an issue with Sony's firmware, it requires a new update to fix it. Sony is working to resolve the issue as quickly as they can. They will update their System Update page as new versions are made available, and we will keep this page updated as we find out more.

*UPDATE* I don' think Sony liked that too much, EA's statement has been removed. Clicking the link above gives you the following statement:

The message on EA’s Help site was posted in error. Players with questions about PS4 connectivity can visit for the latest updates.

So, all of you having issues need to use the link above.
