Despite being designed by the people that designed Blu-ray, Sony's PS4 continues to struggle doing what $50 machines can do flawlessly: play Blu-ray movies.
Users are reporting a wide range of problems associated with the PS4's Blu-ray playback feature, with popular titles either not playing or freezing constantly. So much so that some users have switched back to their trusty PS3s to play Blu-ray movies.
Affected movies, according to Twitter posts, include current top seller Fast & Furious 6, Despicable Me 2 and even Sony's own The Amazing Spider-Man. Some of these discs would fail to load when inserted, giving the user a black screen. Others freeze during playback.
Users are calling on Sony to first acknowledge these problems, and then to issue software fixes as soon as possible.
