The newly unveiled gaming console by Sony, PlayStation 5 has been hit by a bug that prevents a delicate download of games and applications.
This download glitch is reflected in the prompt “Queued for Download” or error state after a user wants to make a download. For presently, the only temporary solution is to reset the console to factory options.
The glitch has been experienced by few users of the console, and it is announced that it occurs whenever the console is set for its first download. It is reported that there is either an error in the download or the game or app being chosen by the user for download will prove the message: Queued for Download. Both notifications give a prompt to check the Downloads menu, which remains empty.
As a fallout of this download glitch, the console becomes annoyingly stuck and temporarily demobilized with respect to the download. A check on the PS5 library will indicated that the user owns the game/app even though the PS5 Store still says the user is yet to purchase the app/game.
Few of the outstanding games affected by those download glitches are Godfall, Spider-Man, Demon’s Souls, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (the noted PS4 version may be downloaded without having any hitches) and the Disney+ app, among others.
From the news thus far, the download glitches only affected games and programs that were specific to the PS5.
Sony has not unveiled any statement yet on the issue. However Activision publisher of Call of Duty recommends a factory reset for any user who encounters this bug. This solved the problem for a lot of of the users. Of course, undertaking a factory reset wipes the console clean, meaning one has to download his games afresh, like effectively like begin playing from scratch. But, for currently, this seems to be the only way out of the problem.
