EA Responds To Reports Of 'Anthem' Bricking PS4 Consoles

Anthem PS4 Crash Sony refund

Those playing Anthem on PS4 have recently found that not only does it suffer from frequent crashes, it can also brick the console. Following what have mostly been middling reviews and early price reductions, some PlayStation 4 players claim it is crashing their consoles-and Sony is giving people refunds because of it.

Those experiencing the issue, including a poster on the Anthem forum, allege their consoles react to the crashes as if "someone pulled the plug without properly shutting the hardware down or if the power went out in the house".

Let's hope Bioware roll out a fix soon, otherwise Anthem's notorious reputation is going to suffer another hit.

Players have called the game "grindy" as it requires them to repeat simple quests and missions to improve their character. I suppose that day-one patch was just for show.

EA's shared world shooter Anthem for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC has had a rough launch. Some of those commenting on the Anthem subreddit have claimed to have received a refund from Sony, whereas others seem to have been less fortunate when communicating their grave concerns to the PS4 manufacturer.

This doesn't sound far removed from other issues connected with Anthem bricking PS4 consoles this week. According to one comment, the console will shut down as though the power plug has been pulled - leading to the irritating system fix reboot, as well as a likely reset for any external storage attached. Surprisingly, it looks like Sony is complying with their requests.

BioWare is a talented team and has already shown their commitment to fixing the game, but will gamers and EA stand by Anthem long enough? "We are now in process of gathering information about the PS4 issues so we can determine the root cause", the post said.

Now, Sony is notoriously strict when it comes to player refunds.

Updated March 5 with a tweet from EA calling for crash data reports.
