Users are reporting a variety of issues following the 2.50 update.
Sony’s firmware 2.50 update for the PlayStation 4 has several users talking but it’s not all necessarily positive feedback. Many users are reporting issues with the new update. On the official PlayStation US community, several users have reported their console failing to start up after downloading the update. One user proposed a solution to boot the console into safe mode but it hasn’t quite worked. Note that while several users report their consoles updating just fine, there are still the odd few issues being reported.
As if that weren’t enough, one Reddit user reported that the microphones on some headsets no longer work after the update. “Steelseries Siberia v3 Microphone doesn’t work at all now. Not even with the bypass.” It was also revealed that some Razer headsets and even Sony`s Pulse Wireless Elite aren’t working. Finally, it should be noted that if one users the new 60 FPS setting for Remote Play or Share Play, then gameplay recording will be paused. Both features apparently can’t be used together.
We’ll update you on further issues with firmware 2.50 in the coming days along with potential fixes so stay tuned.
