    Gamestop warns me DO NOT CONNECT CONSOLE TO INTERNET CORRUPT PATCH

    Went to get my final reciept for the midnight release and the manager told me theyve been told to tell people not to connect to the internet because the day 1 patch is corrupt and causes the system to brick. Is this true and if so any news on it?

    If that was true, Sony would simply pull the update from the server....

    From what I hear, it currupts if you do somethin like cut the power during the update which is kinda what would happen if you cut the power on a device while its updating....
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    How can any of us debunk this when the console is still hours away from release? I am installing the update via USB stick to prevent any sort of corrupted download due to server overload.

    We'll know not too long after midnight.

    I don't believe it. It probably has to do with the fubar that happened to the one person, and it spread through the Interwebz, and someone that works at that Gamestop read about it.. blah blah.

    There are at least a couple thousand early consoles out between the Taco Bell give away, and early delivery to game reviewers. The patch went live a couple days ago.

    There's been report of a few (~0.4% according to Sony) of units that have had issues. Only one was reported as failing during OS update, and another failing sometime there after.

    This doesn't sound like a FW update issue. Just the low probability of units failing early in life. A very small percentage will do this period. And everybody freaks the hell out about it.

    I've got the OS on my flash drive ready to go for mine PS4 when I pick it up from UPS office tomorrow morning. Zero fear of doing the update.

    I believe the number was actually 0.04% so very minuscule

    I just called my Gamestop and they have no idea about what you're talking about.

    They aren't telling ppl this. They girl that answered the phone asked the manager and I heard him say...."we would have no idea tell him to call Sony."

    So yeah....I smell a troll.

    Welp, that's $#@!e if true. But the general consensus is that it's safe, I think.

    That was the original number, but they corrected themselves to 0.4%

    I just installed the update via the web with no issues. The screen went black a couple times for a few seconds (that made me nervous) but I just let it sit and it finished with no problem.
