Japan-based multinational conglomerate corporation Sony has launched its highly anticipated console, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Network users in the United States and Canada are facing difficulties signing in because of an influx of new PlayStation 4 owners who are attempting to log on, as well as download a day one update for the next-gen console. A number of PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Vita owners who are trying to connect to PlayStation Network are getting error codes E-80E80034 and NW-31453-6.
Regarding this issue, the company said, “The PlayStation Network is currently experiencing extremely high volume. Some gamers may experience some difficulty connecting. We ask for your patience.” The next-gen console’s day one update – which is taking the device firmware 1.50 – allows a list of important system features, such as Remote Play, online multiplayer, ‘play as you download’, Blu-ray and DVD playback, gameplay sharing, party chat and second screen capabilities.
The company warned that some features might not be available at launch, such as the ‘suspend/resume mode’ which was announced earlier and enables PlayStation 4 to rest in a low power mode, capable of continuing gameplay right away upon startup.
Following the console’s launch in United States and Canada, Sony is scheduled to release its PlayStation 4 in Europe and Latin America on November 29, 2013.
