PlayStation 5 Disc glitch leads to extensive download times

Since the launch of the PlayStation 5, fans have had the opportunity to delve into the enhanced, more powerful gaming conductor. Shortly after its arrival to consumers’ hands, many people have been seeking knowledge due to issues arising out of nowhere. None of them have yet managed to overcome everything, and one particular technical issue remains unaddressed.

Almost every console unit released in the past have been prone to such problems at launch. Following this, the PS5 is nothing special than them all, as multiple technical issues seem to have overrun the community. Some of them are still as baffling as first appeared, while others have fallen behind—none of them close to the downloading issue that seems very hard to resolve.

Recently, a user has found that a conflict between downloads occur if you have a physical disc of the game inserted in the PS5. Namely, if an update for the game, in this case, Devil May Cry 5, is noticed and pushed onto the PS5 while the DISC is in and the installation of the game is ongoing, then the update will push through, causing the general game download run at a much slower rate.

This made the user lose his internet connection and break his game installation completely. The only way to fix this would be to re-starting the whole process.

The PS5 is currently winning the battle over the Xbox Series X, despite its breaking glitches and issues that have been found so far. In Japan, the PS5 has far more sales than the Xbox Series X, which somewhat sounds its fierce impact on the opposition.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
