Use the same file/method as the HDD swap.
I'm in safe mode. Should I select initialize PS4? I'm assuming that will delete all files on the ps4. I downloaded the update to a usb flash drive.

Too excited to test really, but I have a friend thats got the same Seagate 1TB SSHD and he's going to take some data on the normal drive today and tomorrow, then swap in the SSHD and do the same. I'll report back what he finds.

I've promised my PS3 to my friend's son.

There doesn't appear to be a way yet. But both the pictures and video captures seem to be viewable through an OS player of some kind (click them and it loads up seamlessly). Hopefully they'll bring USB media transfers and file support through a front end player.

Sorry for the delay, Yes that option deletes all the files and looks for the 800MB restoration file.

Anyone check and see what demos are up on the PSN yet?
post #8926 of 15166
Have to say, this launch hasn't been bad at all. A few snags but overall very smooth. Bravo Sony, bravo :thumbup:

has anybody been able to find PS4 games at any Redbox kiosk ? Can't find any in my area with PS4 games. Probably have to wait till next week or something. Really wanted to rent Madden and NFS Rivals.

I believe they were all sizable bundles from the beginning. I tried to buy just the console and an extra controller when they went live, but cart would error outt. I concluded that I needed to include ALL listed items in my bundle, which was the TB headset, one year of PS+, Knack, and the extra controller. I wasn't about to do that just yet.

@ Art I would try restoring to default, then follow the steps for updating using a USB drive. I initially had an issue with the downloaded up in that it said it was "Preparing to install" for about 10-15mins. Rebooted to safemode (power down for 7 secs) and ran the 1.5 update via USB. Took maybe 5 mins and everything came back online without issue. Give it a try or keep waiting on Sony, but I'd bet they will advise restoring to default.

@NoThru22 - Have you tried to boot the system into Safe mode? Red light is supposed to indicate overheating per Sony's manual, but that's not something I'd expect from a cold boot. Have you confirmed all cords are firmly inserted? Have you tried to boot with only the power cord? Try and get into safe mode and report back.

As of last night my local Redbox was not renting games, however this was just from viewing the insert poster they have. I might stop by on the way home to see if they have em. I'd anticipate a general availability within a few weeks.

I just started playing Assassins Creed. I got a few minutes into it, and once on the island I immediately thought, "holy crap this is sharp!" (As in resolution/clarity) Interestingly there was a 146mb or so update - I had to click it to install, maybe it didn't auto-install because I was already playing?

Anyway, from the notes it doesn't look like that has the 1080p fix - so it will be more impressive? While I haven't seen it on PS3, I fail to understand the articles that claimed the difference was negligible. I know that I've never seen texture clarity like this on my PS3! Maybe it's first day excitement, but I'm curious what others think.

Oh, and being able to switch in and out of the main PS4 interface instantly? Awesome.

I was able to speak to Sony and my system is up and running. Thank God!!. Thanks to all who helped out smile.gif

Sony had me pick option 6 from safemode which basically deleted everything from my HDD besides the update and that did the trick. Thanks

Redbox said on their Facebook page they will rent PS4 games in a select few cities starting in November or December. They are testing to see how PS4 rentals do before they decide to try more cities. The test market cities weren't mentioned.

Was just watching your stream and passing the time at work. You are the first person I've seen using Ustream. Most on GAF and a few here seem to lean towards Twitch. I've never used either service so, I'm trying to decided which to use. Twitch is a cooler name so I might go with that one.

Having a hard time getting to play online multiplayer. Seems that PS+ is still going bonkers. Anyone else having a hard time with Multiplayer?

Able to get my 30 free day trial of + with no issues this morning, but that was at 6am.

The Killzone campaign is confusing in telling you where to go, but the combat and using OWL are both fun.
