Gaming on the PS4 is so ANNOYING!

Forums - Sony Discussion - Gaming on the PS4 is so ANNOYING!

Yea, pretty much reason I never use consoles for like Netflix, Hulu, ect anymore due to same reason.

Would turn on PS3 and I swear every single time I turned on Netflix it woudl require and update. Just got annoyed anytime it said that so turned it off and used another device to play Netflix.

I say PS3 cause it annoyed me so much back then that I dont' even bother trying anymore with any newer systems so PS3 is last experience on it.

I love the PS4. It think it is a great console with great games. However, I have not played in seriously in the past two years. Part of the reason is that I have been busy with work/school so gaming just became a lower priority. I also don't write for this site anymore which was once a huge component of my gaming time. I have tried to ease myself back into a steady habit so I can catch up on a lot of great games (Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Uncharted The Lost Legacy, Shadow of the Colossus, etc.) but ever time I try I encounter a huge turnoff: Download and Installing data on the hard drive.

The fact that every game needs to be installed is a nightmare! Whenever I feel the urge to jump back into a game after a few months I have to check to see if it is still installed on my hard drive, physical or digital. If its not on my drive I have to go through the whole installation process all over again.  Even if it is there usually I am greeted by some mandatory update that eats up even more space and forces me to delete another game off the drive to clear up space. I tried playing GT Sport the other day and couldn't because the new update wouldn't fit on my remaining space. I just lose interest and don't even bother.

I miss the days when you could just pop in a game and it would work automatically. The most convenient situation is if I have the game digitally, it is already on my drive, and there are no multi-GB updates needed before I could play. That is honestly so rare though. I share my PS4 with my bro and we have different tastes so we have to compromise which games are installed at any given time.

I still have my launch day PS4 basic. We even upgraded the hard disk to 1TB. I know that is a pitiful amount nowadays but developers should go easy on the amount of data they use. Any suggestions? I will probably upgrade the disk again and I heard external drives are useful too.

I might just buy a PS Now subscription and play through that library.

You're a little young for the "Old man yells at cloud" phase of life, but I'll allow it.

Don't me started on the so called "cloud storage" nonsense!

And get off my lawn!
