Sony Forced To Refund After Major Playstation 4 Crash

Sony Forced To Refund After Major Playstation 4 Crash

While there isn't any confirmation of those stories, EA has now officially come out and stated that Anthem is indeed causing system lockups on PS4. Over 30 people on the Anthem subreddit confirm the game is actually crashing their systems and forcing hardware to turn off at various points in the game.

Some users are concerned that playing the game will lead to them "bricking" their consoles. "Took me 5 minutes", claimed one Redditor.

Update, 3/4 3:50 p.m. PT: In a statement recently posted to the EA Help Twitter account, EA acknowledged it is aware of some crashing issues and directed players to the EA Answers website.

BioWare has addressed a few of Anthem's technical issues since it launched, but PS4 users are encounter some pretty unfortunate crashes.

All clear: Tornado warnings, watch canceled in Lee County
The National Weather Service confirmed the tornado while surveying damage Saturday north of Abbeville from a severe thunderstorm. Tornado warnings and watches were in effect for parts of Georgia and Alabama through Sunday evening.

But this issue is also being reported on the Xbox One. It's the lowest-rated BioWare game ever released; its first-week physical sales were a quarter of what its most obvious genre rival Destiny 2 achieved, and half of Mass Effect: Andromeda's; and now it's been crashing PlayStation 4 consoles, leading to Sony offering full refunds to frustrated players. Some gamers have reported they have been unable to restart the console by pressing the front power button.

If you're looking for an Anthem refund, the best place to start is the main PlayStation Support page. That's what these kind of games do - come out not where they should be, receive a load of post-release content, and turn out unbelievable. Here are 10 other games who managed to pull out of freefall and into something people actually wanted to play. Surprisingly, it looks like Sony is complying with their requests.

When it comes to refund policies, Sony has one of the strictest refund policies out there.

The issue isn't just restricted to consoles either: one of our writers had to buy a new power supply after Anthem caused his PC to crash, causing it to enter a neverending power cycle.
