An odd glitch seems to be deleting PS4 game files but leaving saves untouched.
A rather interesting glitch has emerged for the PlayStation 4 according to one Reddit user. Apparently happening for a few weeks, it seems that games are automatically being deleted or “disappearing” from the console.
“This morning Killzone was missing from my system after only playing it 2 days ago and seeing it on my system last night while playing Outlast. After initializing the console last month I thought it had fixed the issue but it seems not. There are no error messages or anything to suggest there is a problem with the console.”
This hardly seems to be an isolated incident as several users have reported similar issues in the past. While the game’s data files are deleted, it seems the save files are relatively safe. The console in question has no modifications done to it and the user is logged in. What could be causing the problem and how can it be resolved? That remains to be seen.
