No two ways about it ....

Wth is going on with BF4??

Wth is going on with matching up on FIFA 14?
It can take forever to find a match ...

Great machine - so far - but I'm concerned these network issues are going to continue ...

Ok, first off welcome to the party. Second off, does this really need a new thread? Third off, if we’re going to make a new thread on issues with EA games, shouldn’t we be asking why EA games are having online issues?

I have zero problems with Killzone MP. Haven't heard a peep of anything out of the norm in COD or ACBF (besides being a bandwidth hog).

EA problems aren't Sony network problems. It’s what you get when you give money to the twice voted worse company in America.

I'll tell ya what. On the PS4, the PSN store loads instantly.

Maybe it's because there's only a dozen games/add-ons or so that it has to manage.

I'm going with 8GB GDDR5 RAM vs the 512MB of split RAM on PS3. There just wasn't enough RAM on the PS3 for a media centric store, but they did it anyways with the idea of moving towards the Vita / PS4 / PSN App.

EA Makes Worst Company In America History, Wins Title For Second Year In A Row!

I can't speak for FIFA but I don't think BF4's issues are because of the PSN. EA's servers are EA's problem, not Sony's. Many of the PSN issues seem to have been resolved a few days ago, at least the ones I was having.

Twice, the last two years in a row. Their CEO is worried they might stike out with this year as well!

EA is responsible for all of my problems. BF4 is glitchy and they didn't provide Amazon with enough copies of Need for Speed.

PSN works fine, it's been a scapegoat for a long time. I owned both the 360 and PS3 and the online gameplay was no different between the two. Beware what you read online.

This really doesn't make sense... when the PSN Store is running on PS3 it is the only application running... it has the entire systems resources that any game would have. I can't believe that you can run things like Aassasins Creed and BF3 on 512 RAM but that isn't enough for a simple front end store app to run well. I think it was programmed poorly. If there is one thing I do not give Sony credit for doing right, it's UI of almost any kind.

If there's one complaint about PSN and paying for the online experience, it's that the chat system still sucks. I don't understand how we can't have the same quality of chat on PSN as Xbox Live. It's either some patented technology, or Sony can't figure it out. Love to know the reason though.

Pretty much my one and only regret of going with PS4 over Xbone.

EA has already come out and said the BF4 issues are on their end that they will be patching their servers.

I think it's PSN related, because when I try to send an invite, the PSN dialog box pops up and that's when it freezes. Same thing happened with Resogun.

500 gigs FTW.

What's wrong with the chat quality? I thought it sounded great.

I'm guessing its because the earbud kind of sucks and headsets aren't properly supported yet. Otherwise, yea its been great.

I take it back...it sounded great the other night. First few days there was a lot of feedback and static. Must have been launch network issues.

No issues with PSN here outside of the launch day hiccups last Friday. Sounds like an EA issue based on the games you are playing. BF4 is known to have issues on all platforms. IMO you should be complaining to EA/DICE and not Sony.
