Sony has released a new firmware update for the PS4 today. The update is mostly meant for stability although many users have reported a bug after they updated their system. It looks more like a visual glitch than anything else.
The issue that people were facing was a bug on online status of their PSN account. More specifically, your status may be shown as “offline” even though you have set your PS4 status to “online”. Many users on Reddit turned out to have the same problem after the 4.72 update on the firmware of the console.
Thankfully, there is actually a way to fix the bug. All you need to do is go into the settings, log out and then log back into the PlayStation Network. This will luckily resolve the issue for those who were affected by the bug.
For now, Sony’s server status site doesn’t mention any ongoing issues but we hope that they resolve the matter.
