The Playstation 4’s newest update is creating problems for everyone from developers to the console’s owners. Not only has the 2.00 update delayed the PS4 version of Evolve Alpha, but it has also come with a myriad of technical problems for the system; including a dangerous problem with rest mode.
Many Playstation users who downloaded the update have reported serious problems with it. The problems are everything from inconsistent connectivity, volume fluctuations, and almost universally a problem with rest mode. The problem is that after the console went into rest mode, it would not come out. This is a serious problem, and has Playstation users all around the internet suggesting scores of home remedies. Sony has made no official report on the situation, but have said that they are looking into the issue.
As to the issue with Evolve’s Alpha on Playstation 4, 2K has had a couple statements about what the problem is and what is happening about it.
“Following the recent PS4 2.00 firmware update, we are experiencing difficulties with the Evolve Big Alpha on Playstation 4. As a result, the test on Playstation 4 is postponed. Playstation and 2K are working together on a resolution. Evolve’s closed Alpha test is still playable on Xbox One and PC,” explained a 2K representative.
The alpha was only supposed to last until November 2nd, which is tomorrow. It is unclear when they will fix the problem for PS4 users, but they will extend the deadline for them. Hopefully Sony tackles the problems with their newest update sooner rather than later. However, if you own an Xbox One or PC, and want to get into the Evolve Big Alpha here are 2K’s instructions.
