  1. Its 30%
  2. I have accepted this Unit as a Lemon which got triggered as soon as Update 5.0 hit (With less Fault Tolerance). Have raised a Pickup request at Sony Deutschland and send a subsequent Mail to allow me to ship it directly to their Service Center. Will probably get the return item Shipped at our Deutschland Office (Or India if they are willing) and get a Colleague to ship it to me.
  3. I haven't even started any Game, it Crashes on freaking Settings menu, YouTube App, etc.
  4. Edit 3:[24 Oct, 2017] Replaced the HDD and PS4 lasted a little longer than it used to (>40 minutes) but then I got a Crash/Dropout with Error code CE-36329-3 and Crashed/Dropped Out again upon restart when I tried to Report the error. Updated to 5.01 (On new HDD) and Back to square one: CE-34335-8 PS4 doesn't even start anymore!
  5. Lol, Internal Obviously. I got Seagate ST2000LM007.
  6. There was NOT a single issue prior to 5.0 and I've played for well over 8 hours at a stretch as I don't get time regularly. I've already ordered a 2TB HDD for PS4 as my PCs SSDs are too precious to wipe. It is possible that the present HDD was slightly defective since the beginning and 5.0 reduces the fault tolerance of the system, if not so then we'll have to pressurize them to release a patch. PS. These issues started popping up within 10-20 minutes on updating the PS4.
  7. Premise:- I started my PS4 after a few weeks of inactivity, tried to launch YouTube but it wanted me to update the system firmware before I can access that feature. I updated the firmware, started Youtube and watched a couple of videos. Then I tried to start Playstation Store but it showed 'Please Wait..' for longer than I'd care to wait and I pressed back and started to load something else but XMB froze on me. I waited for a while then pressed the power button for a few seconds to force shut down. Since then, I'm unable to start PS4. Fixes Tried (Order of Succession):- Restarted multiple times (CE-34335-8). Safe Mode: Update System Software With Update File (Over Internet). Safe Mode: Update System Software With Update File (Via USB). Safe Mode: Initialize PS4 (Reinstall System Software) with Full 932 MB Update File (Via USB) (CE-33570-8). Removed and Re-Inserted HDD (First time I ever did this, everything is stock). Restarted multiple times (CE-34335-8). Safe Mode: Update System Software With Update File (Via USB). Safe Mode: Initialize PS4 (Reinstall System Software) with Full 932 MB Update File (Via USB) (CE-33570-8). Connected PS4 HDD to my PC (Saw 15 Partitions) and cleared all partitions, formatted it to exFat copied files to it, played them, checked for Disk errors, got no errors. Conclusion: HDD works fine on my PC. Safe Mode: Initialize PS4 (Reinstall System Software) with Full 932 MB Update File (Via USB) (CE-33570-8). How shall I fix this thing? No, I cant go to Sony Service Center as They're a bunch of bozos over here and sony doesn't provide any service (Only Replacements) in India for the PS4s, let alone PS4 Pros.The console is a couple months old and I bought it from Deutschland. Edit: So somehow I was able to Install Firmware to my PS4 using permutations of the above methods and turn my PS4 on. Thus proving it all to be a Software issue. But now I'm plagued with frequent freezes (Sometimes Dropouts) (CE-34878-0) within 30-40 minutes (I haven't installed any game yet, just Using YouTube). Edit 2: Now I seriously hope that it is the HDD but I doubt it. The main culprit seems to be the Update, moreover it's not Just YouTube. The console have Frozen on:- Settings menu (No App in Background) YouTube XMB (YouTube in Background) While trying to load Playstation Store. While Downloading updates for Battlefield 1 (Since my PS4 is completely wiped) in REST Mode.

  8. PSN Store Flash Sale :- https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/flash-sale/cid=STORE-MSF77008-FLASHSALE17LP
  9. I got the PS4 Pro last month. He carried it in his laptop bag.
  10. Isn't this thread a little redundant when we have a Now Playing section in our profiles?
  11. So they gave me refund in terms of PSN store credits (Indian). I'll probably buy Horizon's DLC with it as i'll have to get DLCs of physical discs from Indian store only.
  12. I'm a simple guy and like to keep things straight and simple. "I bought a 12 months subscription of Playstation Plus only to realize that Indian PSN Store Sucks compared to virtually any other region's store. I would like to have a refund on that."
  13. Sent a refund request to them. Let's see how it goes.
  14. Any idea on how to get a Refund? It says i can do that with 14 days of buying.
