many of you have seen me complain of glitches in games recently but now the problem has gotten worse

I get to the last mission in a Dishonored DLC, literally about to complete everything and I get an error close out. Everytime I try to load a game it does so immediately now. So I started Dishonored 2 and it played fine unitl the 2nd mission, now the same thing.

Steps taken so far

1. Rebuilt the Database
2. Unplugged the PS4 for 10 min
3. Deleted the Game and reinstalled
4.copied my game saves and initiated the PS4. Then reinstalled the games once again

I have been at this all day. You could say its my full
time job right now.

Ive submitted a ticket. To make matters worse I was just going to order a new one and game systems are ridiculously priced right now. For what you pay you could almost have a PS5 when it comes out

I honestly cant believe the console is still as expensive as it is when the next generation is coming out soon. PS3 didnt stay that costly close to release of PS4...you could find great deals on PS3

I only bought mine two years ago and I don’t remember what I payed but it wasn’t as much as it is now. It could have been a Black Friday item I can’t remember. But with so many people sitting at home right now, they may not have incentive to drop the prices. It’s kind of across the board because I looked at the switch and X1 yesterday too.

Whats crazy is you cant even buy a ps4 right now because of the pandemic. I had to get wrecked on Ebay to get one to play Last of Us 2.

Switch also has been sold out for MONTHS, but Ive had one of those for a while


I built a PC and PC parts are through the roof and you cant even buy a decent power supply right now.

the guy was pretty cool when he called. He was going to walk me through stuff I had already tried like the defrag and the initialize. Then he was setting me up to send it in. I explained I was sitting on my butt too much so unless it started messing up on more games I think I will just wing it until the PS5 is out.

The gist is that I likely have hardware problems and not software.

No silly, I meant ‘winging it’ until the ps5 release...
well I have had weird glitches in games but the Dishonored DLC was the only one that has been unplayable so far. I don’t know how long they would have it and don’t want to be stuck with my old 360. I looked. I’m not interested in replaying any of that.

Might want to try cleaning out the dust from the fans. Otherwise, do you have an external drive? Maybe your hard drive is acting up?
