I keep receiving this very specific error when I try to message or make a party with anyone. I just got my ps4 and made my account. The error code ws-44396-6 appears constantly. I tried joining a party and message on my brothers account (also just made) and it works perfectly fine. On PS App it won't let my account message anyone, it says I dont have the permission even though I couldn't have been banned and I dont have parental controls active. Please help, I wanna talk with my friends on MY account.


Loan_Warm

Im having the same issue man. Trying to help the gf make an account and every time I try to send her an invite/message to anything it doesnt show up. It just throws the (WS-44396-6) error code for me as well. Any help???

Help with my controllers The stick drift on the DualShock 4 doesn’t wanna go away. I have opened it up and cleaned everything but the stick drift is going to the right and it just gets worse everyday. The other controller has a problem with the l1 button and the down button on the d pad. I need to press L1 very hard for it to work and that isn’t a problem with the r1 button. I opened it up and there isn’t anything damage but instill bought a replacement but it still doesn’t work. The d pad doesn’t register me pressing down, I also have bought a replacement for everything from the D pad but it still doesn’t wanna work. I would appreciate it if somebody can help me right now, because I don’t have any controllers and no money for a new one.

What are some great true PS4 exlusives I should get? Long time PC gamer, also got a PS4 now and looking for some great true exlcusives , that are not on anything else :) It’s funny, when I check lists of best exclusives, by now most of them are either already on PC or coming soon to PC (Horizon Zero Dawn, RDR2, God of War, FF7 remake, Days Gone, Detroit etc…). And the rest like Spider-Man and Last of Us and Ghost of Tsushima I have already. But asking the experts now, what are some less known gems only on PS4 I should check out?


De_tergent

Which game for ps4 single player and that can be played in sessions of max 1/ 1 and ½ hours do you recommend? I was thinking about Spiderman and uncharted.


coolguy84938483

Awhile ago my PS4 crashed and my 2 terabyte messed up so I had to redownload everything on my ps but when I tried Spotify it said it needs to be downloaded so I tried and it said it was already downloaded any help?


cmd912

When I turn on my PS4 pro I get a message that I turned it off wrong and that the SSD was disconnected incorrectly and has to be repaired. But I always put it to sleep or turn it off the right way so idk why this happens. Does anyone else have this problem and found a solution?


cedertra

I ordered a Gold wireless headset and it came in a box with Portuguese instead of English. Is it the same thing, just with a different language on the box? I just want to make sure it'll work in the U.S., because I'm giving it as a gift.


Internutt

Yeah. It will just be a different language on the box. No different to buying a foreign DS4.


cedertra

Great-- thank you! Makes it a more unique gift, I guess!

When I try to turn on my ps4, it beeps twice and then nothing happens. It has been like this for the past 10 hours. It was working yesterday too.


ps4_username

How can i change game languages on only 1 account? Brother got mad because he ca t speak english and i wanted apex in english


HaouLeo

I dont think thats an option. Language configuration is console based, not account based. Youre gonna have to keep going back and forth.

Link to my original post for a detailed explanation... [PS4 Pro Beeps Once and Turns Off (Before & After New Power Supply)](https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4Pro/comments/rnbpeq/ps4_pro_beeps_once_and_turns_off_before_after_new/) TL;DR... My PS4 Pro (7200 model), beeps once and turns off. I followed every possible suggestion I could find online. I unfortunately made it to the last recommendation, replacing the power supply. I replaced it yesterday and it did not fix the issue. I'm at a loss as I can't find anyone who has had this issue continue *after* replacing the power supply. My only guess is that I received a bad replacement. It was purchased new from a third party seller on Amazon. At this point I will be taking it in for free diagnostics. But until I get a chance to do that, are there any suggestions? Secondly, an unrelated question... I have a PS5 but I haven't transferred anything from my PS4 Pro to my PS5 yet. The physical game that is inside my PS4 is GTA V, my most played game. If I purchase GTA V from the PS Store on my PS5, I will still be able to access my GTA Online character, correct? I just want to make sure before dropping $30 on a game I already own.


marklcfc

My son got the new among us game for PS4 but cannot play online. Can anyone advise what I need to do here? I've looked in settings for hours and just have no idea what to change as everything looks correct. When starting up it says Playstation network features in this application are unavailable due to age restrictions


Internutt

That is a restriction set by the Publisher, not by parental controls. Only way to bypass that is to meet the minimum age requirements in the Publisher's End User License Agreement. GTA V for example will not let anyone under 18 play Online no matter what parental controls are set.


RecentOwl2447

Hi.I got my ps4 since 2017 and like 1 year now it has been freezing lagging crashing and everything...Even now I can't even power it up..It takes me to safe mode and asks me to reinstall the update from a USB like 1k times...I really think it's time to get an SSD if that's the problem..In case some1 knows what the problem pls explain to me..


r2-zel

hello my ps4 is freezing when entering any game or setting or any others and after a while entering the game it freeze on the game picture


Remarkable_Tough_147

Hello, i was reinstalling apex legends into my ps4 pro and i put it into rest mode, suddenly said “cannot start ps4.” What can i do to fix this?? And after that there’s a message saying “ Connect a USB storage device that contains an update file for reinstallation for version 9.03 or later.”


Internutt

If your console is completely stuck on that screen and resetting it doesn't take you back to the main menu you'll need to do as it says. Instructions: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/support/hardware/reinstall-playstation-system-software-safe-mode/ Reinstallation file is found here: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/support/hardware/ps4/system-software/ General pointers: • Make sure that you are using the console reinstallation file and not the update file. • Your USB stick needs a folder called PS4 and inside that folder a second one called UPDATE • Inside the UPDATE folder is where you put the reinstallation file • The reinstallation file must be called PS4UPDATE.PUP otherwise it won't be recognised by the console. So remove any (1)s if they appear as part of the file name as that just obscures it.


Remarkable_Tough_147

I didn’t make a back up for my account. Is all of my stuff gone? Sorry if i’m asking too much im just worried.


Internutt

Your purchases and trophies are fine. Your saves are lost unless they were backed up via USB or PS+ Some online games are stored on game servers so won't be lost.


rickthecannon

So there's no alternate way to get out of the Safe Mode loop without losing any data saved to the hard drive and essentially factory resetting?


Internutt

Safe mode is the PS4's BIOS. If its the only thing that can be accessed then that means your data has already been lost. Your PS4 is basically a PC without Windows installed right now if only safe mode/the reinstallation message shows up.


rickthecannon

When you put it that way, it makes sense but its quite unfortunate. Was hoping to not have to do that since its my sister's ps4 and she didn't want to lose her save data. Thanks for the advice.


Remarkable_Tough_147

Oh okay thank you so much! I feel so much better now!


__Bloo__

Hello, I am very new to reddit however I thought someone here might have a solution as I am running into dead ends googling and watching videos endlessly on youtube. About a year ago my family got a new router since then my internet connection was awful on my ps4. I average 20-40mb download and 3-5 mbs upload. My games will run average 30 ping but constant lag spikes over 200 every 10 seconds or so. I had been using my neighbors wifi for about a year now but recently they received a new router so I am no longer able to use theirs so Im no longer able to ignore the problem of my own connection. Ive tried changing different DNS severs, lowering MTU cap, port forwarding with my router, assigning static IP and reserving it, no progress. I am unable to use an ethernet cable or move the router any closer or vise versa. Any suggestions?


N00b22

Sometimes when I sign I get a screen saying "Please wait", with the circle button to skip it. It is annoying. How can I remove it **without reinstalling the firmware?**


Internutt

Try rebuilding the database in safe mode.


N00b22

Tried it and just made the problem worse


Waycool499

I just got my Dad’s PS4 and the first thing I did was create a new account for myself. But for some reason every time I turn the PS4 off or in rest mode, I have to log back in once I turn it back on. What’s causing this?


KingWill143

I’m having a problem where I can’t activate my friends ps5 as my primary account for my ps4. It keeps telling me that I have another system set as my primary when I don’t, I was game-sharing with another friend but I deactivated his account so that he’s no longer the primary account for my ps4. I’m confused, what else should I try?


Internutt

There is no such thing as a Primary account, its Primary console. Multiple accounts can activate the same Playstation as their Primary device. If your cannot activate a console as you already have one set as your Primary device then either log into that console and deactivate it or use the website deactivation tool.


KingWill143

I’ve done both and it still gives me an error message when I try to use my friends console/account


Mr_OneandOnly

As some of u cod fans know, unbeknownst to me, the update has made the game unplayable. It overheated my console, after booting the game up after I unplugged the ps4. causing me to restart. I booted it up a 3rd time and my game overheated and crashed. Won't turn on manually or with a plugged in controller WTF


JD_Peanuts

When I close Modern Warfare during campaign or play the campaign my PS4 Pro goes black screen and unresponsive. How do I fix this?


jungianRaven

Some time ago I bought Ace Combat 7, and absolutely loved it. I only bought the base version though, since I also wanted to buy Yakuza Kiwami 2. I now kind of really want the DLCs. If I buy the Deluxe edition now, does it discount the base game from it or do I have to pay "full price"? Thanks.


Internutt

This isn't steam. On Playstation the prices are what they are.


alextheone10101

I recently received a PS store gift card from another country so its not the same currency is there a way to still use it?


Internutt

Make a brand new account and set it to the foreign Country. You can then redeem the code onto your new account.


alextheone10101

But will i be able to spend the money on my main account?


bonealan

No, but the games you buy on the new account will be available to your main account.


alextheone10101

Thank you for notifying me i aprecciate it


Internutt

No


alextheone10101

Damn, thank you tho


DankSinatraa_

I discovered my psn account is set as a minor account and so I was trying to change the age through the Sony mobile website as this was the main fix. However I can not sign in to the sony mobile website to change my age because the account is set as a minor. I imagine there has to be a workaround for this. Funny how the minor account makes it so you can't fix it being a minor account.


Internutt

You need to sign into a PS4 to upgrade into a full Playstation account. When you are 18 an option within account settings appears that let's you upgrade.


dasaathoff1

I'm stuck... Thanksgiving morning my PS4 shut down, completely on its own and it hasn't been able to turn back on since... I can't really afford a power supply right now so could there be any possible thing that could be causing this? A screw outta place? A cable flipped backwards, any little thing that might be throwing it off? I've tried tearing it down and reassembling (lost a few screws and the black power clip broke, mines a CUH-1215A btw) is there anything that mightve gone wrong on reassembly? I just wanna make sure if I'm gonna get a power supply that it's THE ABSOLUTE LAST OPTION, and since I can't exactly afford one, where's the cheapest place to get one that's compatible??? Please if you could this is my baby and I'm tired of not having any video games (I have bipolar and PTSD games are a huge outlet for me so the last month or so has been really hard...


Dark_knight_dummo

CE-36329-3 I used to have a PS4 Pro that I sold before PS5 came out thinking I’d be able to get a PS5 (how silly of me). I never experienced no issues using that PS4. Recently I tried to get another PS4 Pro so I could at least play some of the new games that come out. I couldn’t find any PS4 pros in stores. And on Amazon new PS4 pros were going for 900! Even more expensive than PS5. So I got a secondhand PS4 pro ( again really stupid move ). Ever since I started playing with it my games keep on crashing, freezing and whatnot. I could not go through one fifa match without the game freezing for at least 15 times. As of right now I’m initializing the PS4 in the vain hope of seeing a change or something. I’m pretty pissed off at myself and the person I got the ps4 from. As far as I know all the applications were updated. My question is: Is there any possibility of this being a hardware issue? Because it’s been happening to almost 60% of the games I’ve played on it. Plus it really heats up and sounds as loud as a tractor engine esp. when I’m playing some of the newer titles and games. My old PS4 pro didn’t make no noise :( Much obliged I am for your help and replies.


Edavis324

Whenever I’m trying to purchase a game with my paypal my playstation would come up and say that my visa card on my paypal is expired when it’s not So when I take that same card on my paypal and set it up without the paypal it will say that “I have to many cards in file” when I don’t. Honestly playstation is fucking me in the ass and is refusing my money. If you want the error codes I will drop them down to who replies


Internutt

As a work around purchase a PSN Wallet voucher from a retailer and redeem it to complete your purchase.

restord

Can any one tell me my the ps store version of far cry 6 is 91 GB but my brothers disk is only 39 please and thank you


dekoi_octopus

Is the disk version downloaded, or are you going off the case? Game file sizes change all the time with patches. But the digital and disc game (assuming they're both fully updated) will be the same size.


restord

Thats what i thought. We started the dl arounf the same time we just found it weird that mine was 91 and he could start and play the game when he only dl the 39 gbs


Desert_butterfries

How do I remove my ex's profile from my ps4?

Can you transfer digital purchases with the same account? I am planning on moving from US to Japan, can I use the same account on my US ps4 on my Japan PS4 or 5


Internutt

Yes. Accounts can be used anywhere in the world on basically every console. Only limit is Chinese censorship on Chinese consoles.


UncleBabyMonster

nah, how bout if i am trying to use the same account on two different consoles, not simultaneously but transfering my purchase and ino


dekoi_octopus

You can sign in to any console and play your games

does it reuqire a ps+ subscription or psn

You don't need Plus. You need a PlayStation Network account.

Hello PlayStation friends. I am trying to figure out a good way to secure my PlayStation to it's shelf so I don't pull it off. I'm thinking Velcro sounds great, but I'm not sure I want a permanent adhesive residue on my console. Any better suggestions or inputs on my idea. Thanks in advance


Flamesfan27

Hi, what exactly does a Full Factory Reset do? I thought it erased all your personal information and data and reset everything back to what was just installed by the Factory. But, when I logged into my account I still had all my trophies and game data. Did I do something wrong or is this stuff just automatically linked to your account? TIA.

Flamesfan27

Ah okay, so it just resets all the settings basically?


cradelikz

Hey hello. I think this is an odd question but do you have any tips for keeping the game cases pristine besides storing them somewhere? Every game disc I have has been handled by me very delicately but it is like if the plastic sheet of the cover always just gets uglier and uglier the more years they just sit there and it makes no sense. I have DVDs from 10 years ago that look better so I was wondering if anyone has a tip besides storing them away in a closed cabinet. Thanks for the attention.


JazzRvt

I'd recommend a cool and dry place. I've kept mine in my closet for over 8 years and all my originally owned games still look pristine


cradelikz

Thanks for the answer. I kind of like them around where I play so idk. I have Game Cube games that look better than my PS4 ones and they've had it rough for sure.


ACanOfPickles

I’m having a problem with the external hard drive on my PS4. It will recognize the hard drive, but if I try to download games onto it, after 15-20 minutes the downloads will stop, the controller will stop working even if I plug it into the PS4, and I have to unplug the console to get it to start up again. This is happening with two different hard drives, one of which is brand new. I initially thought it was some kind of overheating problem, but if I unplug the external HDD the PS4 will work with no issues. I have rebuilt the database but the problem still persists.


BeardedDad1031

I took my ps4 apart (not the first time I've done it) and when i put it back together and turned it on i opened a game and my fan kicked on high and then the system shut of by itself. I didn't forget to connect anything or damage anything while it was apart i just cleaned the fan any ideas?


KeyMatch6088

My mom bought a non Sony controller for niece and nephew. Made sure everything worked on it in-game. Concerns are that it wont hard/soft reset. Everytime the ps button is pressed it reconnects to my ps4. The reset button on the controller doesnt seem to do anything but turn it off. Ps/share button reset did nothing. Tried forgetting the device out of my bluetooth settings, still nothing. Do I have to use it till it dies to get it to stop reconnecting?


koolaidchips

I'm looking for a last minute gift for my dad. He plays a lot of Fortnite, and other games too, but mainly Fortnite. He likes all of the God of War games, and he's been a gamer all of his life. I only play PC games so I don't really know any good ps4 games for him. He also has ps plus so he can play online games. Anything that's easy to get into and is not free would be great.


JazzRvt

Maybe try the bioshock collection? It's fairly inexpensive now and the games are classic. Doom and wolfenstein are also both easy to get into and are well liked by most people


JosephDaGenius1215

Celeste, hollow knight? There are a lot of great indies on PS4/5. Then again I don’t know if your dad would like those type of games.


koolaidchips

He doesn't really like platformers but thanks though!


JosephDaGenius1215

I know it’s a bit late, but if late Christmas gifts are acceptable I would say either Marvel’s Spider-Man or Spider-Man Miles Morales. Both are great games and although a bit different of a genre from the games you described, I feel like he would enjoy either quite a lot. I certainly did.

I have been playing over a couple of years the Farcry series(3, 4, 5, 5 1/2 and now 6). Farcry 4 and 5 are my comebacks when I want to shoot and blow up stuff! So far I have: * Big Buck Hunter Arcade – never played it. Was gifted, used. * Bloodborne - started playing, but could not go forward in the game somehow. * Borderlands, The Handsome Collection – started playing several times. * Call of Duty WWII – finished it, but need to get all trophies. * Deus Ex Mankind Divided – started playing. * Dying Light Anniversary Edition – started playing. * Fallout 4 – started playing. * Farcry 3 – finished it, but need to get all trophies. * Farcry 4 – finished it, but need to get all trophies. * Farcry 5 – finished it, but need to get all trophies. * Farcry New Dawn – finished it, but need to get all trophies. * Farcry 6 – currently playing. * God of War – finished it, but need to get all trophies. * Grand Theft Auto V – started playing. * Homefront The Revolution – never played it. Was gifted, used. * Horizon Zero Dawn – finished it, but need to get all trophies. * inFamous Second Son – started playing. * Just Cause 3 – have started many times, but unable to finish it. * Little Big Planet 3 – started playing. * Ratchet and Clank – started playing, loving it so far. * Red Dead Redemption II – started playing. * Spider-Man – started playing. * The Last of Us Remastered – started playing. * The Last of Us, Part II – started playing. * Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands - started playing. * Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege – started playing. * Tomb Raider Definitive Edition – started playing. What games do you recommend? They can be completely different from what I have so far. Maybe good story line, engaging, different genre? Thank you.

Is Plague Tale Inonocence free right now or it is a bug? I got it for free to my library, I'm going to test when I got home.

It didn't say it was a demo, but it probably is. I'll try later.

Its a demo. The full game isn't free.

I want to buy my buddy a USB flash drive to backup his ps4 saves. Just to clarify, he’s not using this as extended storage, only to backup save files in case of corrupted files. Is 16 gigabytes enough? Does the ps4 compress the the files? Or do I need a larger one? Thanks


HaouLeo

Save files tend to be really small. Id say 8gb is enough for an average gamer, 16 will be more than enough for an absolute unit of a backlog of saves


w3nch

Great, thanks for the response!

Can your PS4 access the main menu normally or is it stuck in safe mode asking for a USB stick for reinstallation?

Where the fuck did the controllers go? I can’t find one anywhere


GarbageEmpire

My left stick isn't working correctly anymore. It used to work in all directions but now it will not work if I move it fully left. It will only move my character at half speed in the 9 position unless I click the stick at least halfway down. I clean my controllers and console regularly, and I treat them with the utmost care. Is there a simple and easy fix? I kinda really cannot afford another controller at the time.


Blazechicken117

Hello, I am getting a new internal hard drive and am wondering can I just slot it in when it arrives and then install system software, or do I Need to do anything beforehand. Thanks :)

Its as simple as that. With your old HDD make sure you back up your game saves first if you haven't done so already.

You need to sign into the profile you were already using, not a new one. 2 accounts 2 profiles Acount 1 can sign into profile 1 but not profile 2. Profile 1 cannot be signed into with acount 2. If a third profile is made both acounts 1 and 2 cannot sign into it.

been trying to connect my ps4 to the pc through remote play, but whenever i try to manually link it. It tells me that the networks must be the same.

Outrageous_Stock_124

Hey guys so here's some quick explanation of events. Last night I decided I was going to stick on ghost of tsushima and in my haste knocked the controller a very short distance maybe 10 centimeters. I picked it back up and began playing to my horror I noticed the R1 was unresponsive to any stimuli so I went about solving the problem I thought it was either 1 or 2 things my rubber bumpers had become dirty or slightly dislodged or that the conductive film had somehow been damaged from the fall under inspection the film seemed fine and the rubber itself was in perfect condition and both I had cleaned thinking that would be the answer to my problems. So no I'm left without any other ideas as to what the problem is and am reaching out to you guys for help . Can you guys think of any other reasons ?

Does anyone make a volume adjuster that plugs into the DS4 or DS5 controller? I plug in my Bose wired headphones in and then I can’t fine tune volume how I’d like.

So I just upgraded my standard ps4 with a SSD. I did everything the right way, reinstalling the system via usb and did a Backup of my data from the HDD which I restored on the SSD. Everything works fine except my capture gallery. Everytime I open the capture gallery, instead of seeing the images and titles of the games, I see the standard gallery image and the text for each game says "deleted application". On my sisters Account the gallery, which only contains 3 games because she does not play that much, everything works fine. But on my Account with like 40 games or so the gallery seems to be sort of overhelmed with the amount of captures it has to load (Although I just upgraded to the SSD). I tried rebuiding the database and clearing the cache but it did not fix my problem. So now Im sitting here needing serious help because i cannot figure out what is wrong with my ps4 , even online I cant find anything similar.

Hi, I need belp. Specifically how I've formatted(reinitialized?) my ps4 and is on the start screen where it says to connect my ds4 via usb to it and press home part... The thing is I don't have a ds4 anymore. It broke and I've been using a hori wired mini gamepad for a year or so now and it won't register as pressing the home button with the hori controller. Is there a work around or is buying a ds4 the only option?

I had the same problem Yesterday. I upgraded my ps4 with a SSD, so I also had to reinitialize my ps4. I also was on the start screen and tried using my Nacon controller but it didnt work. Luckily, I still had my old ds4 and with that controller, it did work. Very strange.


Rtor_Curry94

Buying a ds4 at the moment isn't financially viable. So I'm asking if there's a fix but if a ds4 is what I actually need then I'll save up for one. Maybe even a second hand one.

I have built a simulator cockpit for my kids Christmas running a PS4, G29 with pedals and shifter. I mounted a leather electric drivers seat from an Audi A4 (powered by an 18v 1.5aH Drill Battery) to a custom timber frame based on my kids heights/reach. Had some graphics printed up on Tyvek and glued them to panels for the cabinet. I even recessed some LED RGB strips along the sides/front/rear. I haven't mounted shifter as its for my kids 4, 6, 8 y/o and my big problem is finding racing games appropriate for them to play. Coming from PC background I didn't realize some games wouldn't work with a wheel on console. Crash Team Racing Nitro only to find it had no support. Looks like Hot Wheels Unleashed wont work either. I have GT Sport, but it seems a little complicated for the 4 year old. Can anyone recommend a more forgiving title that will work on my setup. Thank you


IAmMissingNow

If I start a chat over the psn messages will the person be notified even if I didn’t say anything? Will they be notified when I leave the chat?

Hi! My PS4 Slim's fan is making a weird.high pitched noise when spinning. I've isolated the noise to the fan, so it's not my HDD or PSU. Anyone know of a fix for this? The sound is really annoying and my head hurts because of it. I don't really have any spare part to buy where I am so a replacement fan is not an option, unless someone knows of a third party fan that I might be able to purchase. You can hear the sound here, most prominent starting at 32 seconds. https://youtu.be/P9rxISZWiEU Thank you!

Prior_Main_1714

My psn randomly sogned out today and the password is not working, can someone help me i tried resetting the password but the email letting me has not come yet. Im not sure what happened.


dekoi_octopus

If you're positive the password is correct, and you're using the correct email, then it's possible someone hacked your account. Even if that isn't the case, you should contact support to figure out what happened.


Prior_Main_1714

I have already, the problem is that i cant change my password as the email that they should send me isnt coming in.


dekoi_octopus

Tell them this. It's possible you were hacked and your account email has been changed. Fully explain your situation and what you need from them (and be prepared to prove it's your account to them).


Prior_Main_1714

I havr and just waiting, i already made a new email just in case

What is the best souls game for beginners I'm asking this question because I am planning to buy my first souls game because it looks interesting  and I want to experience a game that will give me a challenge, any suggestions?


a_allen4261

3 is easiest in my opinion ds2 is my all time favorite and is probably medium difficulty and 1 is the hardest in my opinion I have little experience with bb (pissed me off) so it's probably pretty difficult 🤣


HaouLeo

>ds2 is my all time favorite Wtf man


a_allen4261

Yep


eggsh0t288

Bloodborne or dark souls 3 based on its difficulty?


a_allen4261

I would honestly start with 2 it's really basic with design and you don't have to think too hard to figure things out


eggsh0t288

Ok ty


a_allen4261

No problem man it's actually my favorite game ambience wise too beautiful areas to explore if you want any help lmk


eggsh0t288

What if if dark souls 2 is not available because dark souls 2 in ps4 is quite rare it is selling for about $49 but games like ds1,ds3,bb and nioh cost about $20 ,any alternatives?


a_allen4261

3 then I would say (least favorite game lol) you could always digital download


eggsh0t288

I rarely download but ok i'll buy just buy a ps gift card. (Lol I almost purchased sekiro but I remembered that someone finished sekiro after 2 years).


a_allen4261

2 years?!

My friend sold me their PS4 after upgrading to the PS5 and I have a question about what to do with their PS4 user account. When we would play while he owned it we used his PS4 account and he had GTAV and Gran Turismo installed. Now that its mine I made a psn and a personal ps4 account and can play the games. His ps4 user account is still on the user list because we were concerned if we deleted his account, I would lose access to the games. We tried googling an answer but the sony website just states data will be lost, kinda unclear imo. So my question under these circumstances is this; Can I delete their original ps4 user account and retain access to the games, or will they be lost?


Internutt

They will be lost. Game ownership depends on the account staying there and the PS4 being his Primary PS4.


aayinn

Is it possible to play with my PS4 on my PC like its just another window opened in my desktop? I tried remote play but its too laggy for me. I want to be able to alt+tab and still use my pc and alt+tab again to play with my PS4 on the same monitor.


dekoi_octopus

Remote play is your only option for that.


Substantial-Fold1913

Good day I am trying to connect a seagate 6tb back-up hub drive to my PS4 Pro, I am getting the following error code ce-41899-1. Is there a way of connecting this drive or is it not compatible with the PS 4 Pro?


icyhotdragon

My game is not downloading .Yesterday I went to GameStop to buy the fnaf core collection bundle. It’s a collection that lets you download the first 5 games, but it doesn’t let me download some of them. It let me download 2 out of the 5 of them. Any fixes to this? I’ve already tried to restore the license and storage isn’t a problem

Is it possible to use remote play on android smart tv? If not is it possible to remote play on a ps4?(streaming from my ps5)


squareiz-

Hey would really love some help please. I have a friend of mine who is in a wheelchair and has no mobility of his arms or legs. He really wants to find away that he can play PlayStation . He has a Joystick that he controls his chair with and he moves that via a rod that he has attached to a helmet he wears on his head. The joystick has Bluetooth capabilities and I was able to get the PS4 to recognise it last night but the joystick did not operate the PS4 just wondering if there's anyone out there that can help me with this as I'd love to get him set up his chair is called a Quantum im not sure which model. Any help on accessibility of how to get it working would be greatly appreciated cheers.


dca_ps

If I buy the Ps4 digital version of Horizon Forbidden Weston on PSN, do I get the PS5 version? I know it has the free upgrade path, but I don't know if it is just for the physical. Edit: Forgot to name the game


Internutt

Its for the ps4 version. So disc and digital


Unlikely_Web_4845

hey everyone, so i just switched from ps4 to xbox just tonight, and in need of games, is anyone willing to gameshare? i know this is alot to ask for but worth a try, not looking for anything in specific just need some games.


dekoi_octopus

Nobody should be giving their account details to anybody, least of all a stranger on the internet.


Unlikely_Web_4845

Understandable, Sorry.


Dannycar01

Hello! I hope you are all doing well. I edit my videos on PS4 Share Factory but I have a Youtube intro on my pc. I want to get that short intro clip into my ps4 capture gallery so I can add it to the video via share factory. How can I do this? Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance!


beastboy1999

So I loaded up my ps4 tonight and a database corrupted please restart your ps4 message popped up. This had happened multiple times before but I hadn't acknowledged it yet, so I closed the message but as soon as I closed the message it reopened over and over again but finally I was able to restart my ps4, but then something even stranger happened. My ps4 reset itself to before I got my ssd. So I decided to check my games list and a bunch of old games that I Uninstalled were back on my installed page and the ps4 is running super slow. So I eventually check my minecraft world because that would be the simplest way to check if my save files were gone but everything was the exact same. Also a bunch of random game updates keep on happening This is really confusing to me and I just want to know what happened and if it has to do with my ssd


wacky1103

When i move my left joystick it also triggers my L1 button please help


gummy_spider

none of my ps4 controllers buttons were working in any of my games, so i took it apart so i could clean the contacts. im pretty sure i put it back together right, but for some reason the shell wont close at the top and im not really sure why


dingostealingbaby

I've had my PS4 for a view years and we've had an ok setup for family/parental controls. With the HDD failing and having been replaced (it died, no chances of any data transfer), the child accounts appear in the family management menu for me, but there's no ability for them to login without me creating a new account? I'd like to organise the kids accounts again, but there's no option to remove their old accounts from my family, and when I create new accounts I'm told "you've reached the limit on how many accounts can access network features". Anyone encountered this before and have any advice? TIA!


SpectralRaiden

I have an 2tb external drive that came default exFAT. I wanted to use as extended storage that my PS4 isn't recognizing. I even formated it to Ntfs and reformatted it back to exFAT through my PS4. It shows up under USB storage devices, but despite already being the correct format it insists that it still can't be used until I properly format it. The other problem is it only lets me do this through 'options'. Anybody have any solutions? I've literally been searching trying to get this to work for hours.


Accomplished-Diver49

My ps4 has a problem, the X button does work its stuck it's very low to the ground and I can use it. all the buttons and everything else works fine but this doesn't is there anyway I can fix it

My DS4 battery dies very quickly and always has. Am I doing something wrong? So about 3 years ago I bought a PS4 Pro Star Wars Bundle. Honestly, it was cheaper than the pro by itself. Anyway, it comes with my first DS4 and I've noticed the battery dies very quickly. I'm wondering if this is normal. It is a "star wars" DS4 if that matters. I dont think i saw a drop in battery life over time because i remember this being weird/confusing/frustrating since i got the PS4. Its also the only DS4 i have ever used. And I mean battery life between uses. I basically get 7 days of life until I need to charge it again whether I use it or not. Which is very frustrating because I don't play daily. Every time I go to play I have to remember to plug it in the day before or at least an hour before. This is in contrast to my experience with DS3 controllers on PS3. Which lasted months between charges. Also my move controllers last a long time between charges too. What I typically do when I'm done gaming is go to power options and shut down, then switch off my power strip overnight. I do this because my area has a lot of power outages and surges. Why my DS4 battery dies quickly but not the move controllers? Is there anything I can do or change? Is there an "off" switch i'm not seeing? Thanks


GiraffeHerpes

Ps4 got stolen, anyone know what I should do? Can sony help at all? What steps should I take to protect my account?


dekoi_octopus

Contact your police department first. If you don't already, enable 2FA on your account. It's possible Sony could help (it should be reported to them) but I wouldn't hold your breath on using them to get it back.


ilariad92

Anyone know why I can’t find FF XIV base game in the PlayStation store?


Internutt

Its sold as a complete collection these days. However there were reports stating that the game has been temporarily pulled from sale due to overcrowded servers.

I need a suggestion on an hdmi cable. There are so many options leading me to a rabbit hole of products. I have a base ps4 and a 1080 graphic TV. My plan was to get a 4k hdmi cable so when I upgrade ps4 and tvs I'll have the cable in hand. What I'm looking for in an hdmi cable is at least 20 feet long, fiber cable, gold plated, 4k for future use, and durable. Thank you for your time!


whitestar11

Monoprice cables have been my standard. They're available on amazon usually if you dont have a large enough order for Monoprice.com. Honestly the cable is not a huge deal if you dont go after the cheapest amazon china brand. Get 4k at 120hz and that should future-proof you for a while. There are standards like HDMI 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 etc so get the latest if you also want to future proof it. Those are for features like HDR and controlling electronics through the HDMI cable.


Nihilistic_quill

Thanks soooooooooo much!


TheFlyingSpoon12

I'm having a strange problem with my ps4. Theres one game I have, clean disc and everything, that I keep trying to start, but it keeps blinking between the ps4 menu and the wavy blue background non stop. Every 9ther disc starts fine though, what can I do to fix this?


Orams22

My controller keeps pressing L3 on its own. At 1st the L2 was not working so I opened it and now I have another problem. Please help I don’t want to buy another controller


Hary0423

I’m getting a PS4 soon and have never played a COD, which would be the best to start with?


defph0bia

So, I'm new to PS+ and I'm still confused on how the monthly free games work. Once I've downloaded the free game of the month, do I keep it forever even when I don't have PS+ in the future? Or will I lose it when I lose my subscription. Sorry if this question has been asked before.


Internutt

You keep your collection of PS+ games for as long as you subscribe. If you cancel your subscription you lose those games until you resubscribe again.


whitestar11

I had asked this same question as OP and I was told you can keep the games forever (even after cancelling subscription). Never tried it myself though so can't confirm.


Internutt

PS+ games are only accessible while you are subscribed to PS+. They are forever tied to your account yes, but PS+ games can only be played while you are subscribed to PS+


defph0bia

Ok so I can them back later if I resubscribe. Thanks
