PS5 beta software, which is currently under testing by Sony, has been accused of having a “hostile” user-base, while another company has also raised questions about its quality.
A Reddit user has now started a petition on Reddit asking Sony to remove beta PS5 software from its PlayStation platform.
The petition says that beta software on PS5s beta versions “has a hostile user-interface and user reviews that are poorly written and often biased against it.”
The user has also said that Beta versions of PlayStation software can be downloaded for free on other platforms such as PC, but that they do not offer the same level of support.
According to the petition, “the PS5, and Sony itself, is a victim of this ‘hostile user-experience’.”
The petition has garnered over 6,500 signatures so far.
In addition to Sony, users of Reddit have also raised concerns about PS5 games being “hosted on third-party servers.”
Reddit user rjwilson posted: “The servers are hosted by third parties.
The game is hosted by Sony itself.
PS5 servers are not hosting their games on servers they have themselves created.”
This is not the first time Reddit users have raised concerns over PS5 support.
Last month, Reddit user rybakos posted that he was concerned that PS5 developers were running a “fake version” of the game that was being used to test the beta.
The petition on Sony has also attracted criticism from users who are upset about beta software being “free” on other networks.
Reddit user pjfrey posted:”Sony has been running beta versions of PS5 and it’s running on PC and mobile platforms, where users are using other networks.”
“The PS5’s beta software is being hosted on a third-parties servers.
PS4 Beta software was also hosted on third parties servers and users are still using it, which I find a bit problematic.”
According to Sony’s official FAQ, the PS5 is designed to “support up to 16 players simultaneously and to support up to 24 players at the same time via a single cable.”
The PS4 has also been plagued by “large-scale” bugs and performance issues.
Sony also recently announced that it will be offering PS4 players with an Xbox One console the ability to purchase the PS4 Pro in the US.
