One Reddit user has reported that when he booted the console after the update, all he got is a flickering screen. While some did not get a flickering issue, they still receive crashes during in game. But it’s not the game that crashes, but the console itself.

Another user has posted his disappointment that the new update just brings a connectivity issue. “I have extremely reliable internet and have never had a problem until after this update where I’m getting that error message and cannot log on to multiplayer games,” Reddit user said.

As of writing, there’s still no exact solution for the issues on PS4 firmware 6.02. Also, no statement has been received from Sony about this matter.
