EA is claiming that the big day one system update for the PlayStation 4 is actually breaking some of their games. It reportedly causes some "stability issues" in a few of EA's titles.
Sony has released a firmware update for the PlayStation 4 that is required for many features on the console. However, this update also results in stability issues while playing games on the system.

This affects all games on the PS4, including EA titles, causing crashing/freezing and non-responsive connections between the player's console and their TV Screen.

Unfortunately since it's an issue with Sony's firmware, it requires a new update to fix it. Sony is working to resolve the issue as quickly as they can. They will update their System Update page as new versions are made available, and we will keep this page updated as we find out more.

So, if you're experiencing some oddities while playing any of EA's titles on your just updated PlayStation 4, you may have to wait for Sony to roll out another update for the system.
