PlayStation Network Help Thread

Let's talk about anything about video games, no matter what platform it is. What is your favorite game? Who is your favorite character? What are the recently released games? What is DLC (downloadable content)? How do I beat this boss? How do I set up my team?

guys currently having a problem connecting to the PSN+ and internet connection using my PS4. started 2 days ago. sometimes it will connect but you have to go to the system settings and manually try to set up the internet connection again.

I am using PLDT FBR on a linksys/cisco modem. i usually use a LAN cable but i even tried wifi and it doesn't work.
The PS4 is able to get an IP address but when it test the internet connection wala this is both for wifi and Lan cable.

I tried on and off both the router and FBR modem to no avail. regular internet wifi with my laptop ad iphone is no problem.

Since nakakakonek ang ibang devices then it means walang problema sa connection mo. My opinion is, dahil siguro pinagpalit mo si wifi at LAN kaka-figure out kung ano nangyari kaya nanibago ngayon si ps4 sa nadedetect nyang connection mo which is why need mo pa mag setup ulit para lang marecognize at kagatin ni ps4 yung current setup na nakakabit sa kanya.

You mentioned pinatay mo na yung router at modem already. Try turning them BOTH again pero this time tagalan mo yung time na naka-off sila pareho, mga 15sec then saka mo subukan kumabit ulit via ps4 on WIFI.

Para safe, mag stick ka sa isang connection method lang for all device types - in this case, wifi lahat para uniformed ang setup sa buong bahay. For convenience sake, mas madali kasi in your part pag isang uri lang ng koneksyon ang aasikasuhin mo. I suspect na may kinalaman yung pag ulan recently kaya nakaapekto sa connection mo somehow pero i doubt it kasi naka fiber ka na and ang common na apektado ng weather is yung mga naka dsl kasi tumatawid pa rin sa kawad ng kuryente ang mga yun.

Thanks guys.

ron_bato - i was getting no network connection or Time lapsed waiting for response from server, something to that effect.

Its currently working back to normal na today. Hopefully it won't happen again but i will keep you posted.
I don't know if its the weather or something that caused this minor glitch.

sa mga games sa PS4, from experience, dapat pareho ng region yung game at DLC. kung merong free DLC sa HZD sa R3 account mo, subukan mong i-download at gamitin sa R1. kung gumana, good. so pag bumili ka ng paid DLC, sure na gagana.

Tama sinabi ni Daniel, most likely dahil sony game yan, region locked ang DLC. So if R1 yung game mo, dapat sa R1 store mo bilhin DLC.

Mga boss, tanong ko lang kung anong mas okay sa PS Plus subscription? HK or SG? O baka may mas okay pa? Balak ko kasing mag-avail ng 1 year subscription. Para makapag-online lang sa NBA 2k18. May bearing ba 'yung region ng subscription? Kung wala mang bearing sa NBA 2k18, ano po bang advantages ng HK over SG and vice versa? Thanks!

Boss, sinusubukan ko ngayon ilagay as payment option 'yung Credit Card ko. Pero, Hong Kong address ang hinihingi dun sa billing address. Pwede bang random HK address lang ilagay ko dun? Thanks!

Sa PSN, sa HK lang tested na pwede ang local cards.

At oo, pwedeng random address ang ilagay mo. Basta tanggapin during registration. :D

If mag lalagay kayo ng credit card info sa PSN niyo, I recommend using 2 factor authentication (2FA) sa accounts niyo just to add that extra layer of protection.

Marami nang instances where a lot of people are losing access to their PSN accounts dahil nahack sila, and it could easily be avoided by using 2FA.

pwede yun. sa ps4 ba o ps3?

sa ps3 madali kasi basta merong additional ps3 user at naka-register na psn account, pwede niyang ma-download.

sa ps4 medyo tricky. gagawa ng additional na ps4 user at naka-register na psn account. pwedeng malaro yung games pero dapat naka-login yung psn account kung saan binili yung game.

ang workaround doon ganito. merong setting sa ps4 na yung psn account naka-"activate as primary ps4" under ng settings menu.

ps4 mo + psn mo
ps4 bro + psn bro

ps4 mo + psn mo <-- deactivate as primary ps4
ps4 bro + psn bro + psn mo. <-- activate as primary ps4

tutal naka-login naman yung psn mo pag nilalaro mo yung ps4 mo, gagana pa rin lahat ng games. yung sa ps4 ng utol mo yung medyo maiiba. malamang gamit niya yung sarili niyang account.
