XBoxOne E100 Error | XBox One Update Error | PS4 Blue Light Of Doom Fix | RRoD

Last week, prior to the PS4 release, the larger gaming media pounced on every report of a PS4 problem like rabid animals. This week, with the Xbox One coming out tomorrow, reports of issues with the system are generally being ignored. But with the system technically already launched in parts of Europe, we’re starting to see issues pop up along with video proof.

Early reports of PS4 not working have surfaced, with the main issue appearing to be related to the PS4 OS, bricking PS4 consoles.

The issue appears to be that despite the blue pulse appearing when the console is switched on, the PS4 won’t load.

he PS4 hasn’t gone on sale yet, so these are isolated incidents restricted to the few PS4s that have gone out pre-release to media and competition winners.

Incredibly, despite these issues being discovered ahead of the PS4’s release and Sony refusing support (as the console isn’t official on sale yet), a fix has already been discovered by Reddit.

To fix a bricked PS4, you have to take the following steps:

Unplug your HDD
Boot the console without the HDD – it will load Safe Mode and ask for a HDD
Switch off, plug in the HDD and boot the console
PS4 will load into safe mode and you can recover the necessary OS data

We won’t know until launch how widespread these issues are, nor how effective this fix will be in zapping all those problems, but it’s still worrying that reports of PS4’s bricking have reared their head so close to the official US console launch this Friday.

PS4 Blue Light of Death | Sony Responds To Playstation 4 BLoD Fault Fix | PS4 RRoD

PS4 Blue Light of Death | Sony Responds To Playstation 4 BLoD Fault Fix | PS4 RRoD
Early reports of hardware failures afflicting Sony’s new PlayStation 4 console have now become widespread enough to acquire a nickname: the “Blue Light of Death”.

The name encompasses a range of errors, the shared symptoms of which include the console’s blue power light blinking on and off and a failure to transmit video or audio to a connected TV.

Sony has released an official statement noting that the hardware errors have affected “less than .4% of shipped units to date,” a figure that the company says is “within expectations for a new product introduction”.

The company has also reported that more than 1 million consoles were sold in 24 hours during the PS4’s launch in the US and Canada last Friday.

An official trouble-shooting guide for the error has also been posted on Sony’s support forums, with the post noting that the blinking blue light could  “indicate any number of causes including but not limited to”: issues with the customer’s TV, the PS4’s power supply, its hard drive and “other PS4 hardware”.

Suggested fixes include checking that the console’s hard drive is properly secured, booting the system to Safe Mode (achieved by pressing and holding the power button  for seven seconds after powering the console down) and checking for software updates.

As of writing the launch edition of the console has currently received nearly 600 one  star reviews on Amazon.com with the majority of customers complaining about the “Blue Light of Death”.

“Right out of the box I’m getting a pulsing blue light and I can’t see anything on my screen,” writes one reviewer. “Customer service is lousy and I’ve been put on hold for about 50 minutes trying to get my PS4 fixed.”

This collective nickname for the errors is a reference to the infamous “Red Ring of Death” that afflicted the Xbox 360 following its 2005 launch.

Microsoft blamed the widespread hardware failures on the use of lead-free solder introduced in response to a European Union mandate. Various studies have estimated that between roughly 25 and 50 per cent of consoles were affected.

#‎Playstation‬ Bitch Slaps ‪#‎XBoxOne‬ | ‪#‎PS4‬ vs ‪#‎XBOX‬ ONE | What will you Buy?

THUMBS UP for PS4 | THUMBS DOWN for XBOX ONE

The battle is beginning to warm up. The gossip has started and the rumour mill is spitting out Playstation 4 vs XBox One news left right and center. From the semi botched XBOX ONE pre-E3 press conference, to the Playstation 4 XBox One Parody Videos and the XBOX 180 U Turn that have Microsoft back stepping to play catch up as they tie themselves in knots over games console specifications, features and pricing.

Key features of Microsoft’s Xbox One console, which is expected to go on sale in November, will only be available with an annual subscription. The requirement covers recording and sharing of gameplay videos, making Skype video calls and using a service that finds gaming opponents. An Xbox Live Gold account that currently costs $60 (£40) will be needed for all these features.

Sony PlayStation 4 owners will also have to pay for some online services. However, the president of Sony Computer Entertainment confirmed, via a post on Twitter, that its machine would not restrict games recording and streaming features to paid subscribers.
Watch and recommend

Microsoft revealed the requirement in an update to webpages detailing the Xbox One’s features.Twitter Sony confirmed it would not restrict games recording to paid subscribers via a tweet

The webpage shows that, as with the current Xbox 360, a Live Gold account is needed if owners want to use their new console for online multiplayer gaming, watch Netflix, Love Film, NOWTV or similar streaming services and to browse the web via their TV. In addition, on the Xbox One the annual subscription will let players share videos with friends. The console records a rolling sample of a player’s previous five minutes gameplay to make it easier to share key moments.

The payment will also let owners chat to friends via video on Skype and use the OneGuide and SmartMatch services

OneGuide analyses what Xbox One owners usually watch and recommends TV shows and YouTube content to match. The SmartMatch service links players with other gamers of a similar ability to ensure they are not outclassed in multiplayer matches.

In June, Sony revealed a change to its previous policy which gave all owners of its PlayStation 3 console access to online multiplayer games. With the PlayStation 4, owners will have to pay $50 (£32) a year for a PlayStation Plus account to do the same.

#Apple wins key patent case against rival #Samsung in US

Apple has won a key patent case against rival Samsung at the US International Trade Commission (US ITC).

The US ITC upheld a 2011 decision which found that Samsung had infringed Apple patents in the production of mobile phones, media players and tablets.

The US ITC has ordered that Samsung devices affected by the ruling are banned from the US.

But that ban is on hold while US President Barack Obama reviews the decision.

The President has 60 days to assess the US ITC’s findings, although analysts say he is unlikely to overturn the commission’s decision.

“We are disappointed that the ITC has issued an exclusion order based on two of Apple’s patents,” Samsung said in a statement.

Florian Mueller – Foss Patents

“The proper focus for the smartphone industry is not a global war in the courts, but fair competition in the marketplace.”

Apple hailed the decision, placing it in the context of the tech giants’ global patent battles.

“With today’s decision, the ITC has joined courts around the world in Japan, Korea, Germany, Netherlands and California by standing up for innovation and rejecting Samsung’s blatant copying of Apple’s products,” said the company.

Two patents

The ruling applies to two patents.

The first is the so-called “Steve Jobs patent“, named after the company’s founder, which involves touch-screen technology.

The other patent is related to the audio socket on devices.

“It’s another significant victory for Apple,” intellectual property analyst Florian Mueller told the BBC, “especially because the famous Steve Jobs patent is a pretty foundational patent.”

Four other patent infringements asserted by Apple were turned down by the US ITC.

Ongoing battles

Apple and Samsung have been fighting patent battles for years and across 10 countries.

The fight has escalated after Samsung overtook Apple last year to become the global leader in smartphone sales.

Battles between Apple and Samsung have escalated as Samsung has eaten into Apple’s market share

In Washington on Friday, a federal appeals judge heard testimony in a separate patent case between the two companies relating to a decision last year, in which Samsung was found to owe Apple $1bn (£645m) for infringing on patents.

That penalty was later struck to $450m, but Apple appealed against the ruling. A verdict in that case has not yet been issued.

Separately, last weekend President Obama issued the first presidential veto in 26 years relating to a US ITC decision.

That veto overturned a ban on older models of Apple’s iPhones and iPads because of its “effect on competitive conditions in the US economy”.

Friday’s ruling is widely seen as a victory for the company.

“In a way. the noose is tightening. Apple step by step actually is gaining leverage against Samsung,” says Mr Mueller.
