Several users are reporting issues from a defective drive to bad playback.
The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have both been facing a number of problems since releasing, especially when it comes to hardware. By its own admission, Sony knows that a small percentage of its platforms are defective and has been working to fix the same. You can now add one more problem to the list as several users are facing problems with the console’s Blu-ray drive.
Twitter user Marcus Wong has eventually run into a problem with his Blu-ray drive, stating that, “After playing around with my #PS4 for over a month, the only issue I’ve had is with it hanging when loading up some Blu-ray movies.”
Meanwhile, Eric Povish tweeted about the console’s Blu-ray playback suffering but the same discs working on the PS3. “@yosp will the Blu-ray player in PS4 get a patch soon? I’m having terrible playback on certain titles. The same discs play perfectly in PS3.”
Devonte Davis stated that he, “Managed to get a ps4 that initially had Blu-ray movie problems and a defective system. #ps4 #greatnessawaits#ornot.”
Eric Jensen also had a problem getting a specific film to play. “Has anyone out there tried playing @DespicableMe 2 Bluray on PS4? Can’t get the movie to play.”
Kevin Artiga meanwhile sees nothing but a black screen where cars and a suitably handsome Vin Diesel should be. “@AskPlayStation my fast and the furious 6 Blu-ray is not reading on ps4. And the disc is new all I c is black screen.”
Twitter is literally filled with users complaining about this issue. Perhaps these are part of the defective consoles that Sony has stated that it is working to fix. It could also be other unaccounted for consoles that are facing defects. Have you faced any problems with your PlayStation 4’s Blu-ray drive? For that matter, has your Xbox One’s Blu-ray drive been affected? Let us know below in the comments.
