Here’s what causes some PS5s to get bricked up on day one – and how to avoid this happening to you.
What is the problem? Reports of this issue were first posted on YouTuber on November 10th
about that. “At this point, my PS5 is 100% dead,” he wrote. “I had storage recovery issues reported by others, but mine escalated to full errors and network / boot issues. Sony and I were working on the fix when she died completely. ”
P.1. At this time my PS5 is 100% dead. I was having the storage rebuild issues others reported but mine escalated to full errors and network issues/boot. Sony and I were working through troubleshooting when it died completely. So at this time I will be moving content around...— 🎮 ACG 🎮 (@JeremyPenter) November 10, 2020
This problem appears to be caused when the PS5 tells players that they need to “rebuild” their storage. The same problem has been flagged by several other notable influencers such as Giant bomb Editor Jeff Gerstmann, who in a
that his system also crashed and went through an “external drive repair sequence” that resulted in a black screen that could only be fixed by restarting the console.
Seems like putting a PS5 into rest mode while Spider-Man Remastered is running crashes the whole system, forcing that "repair your external drive" process when you start back up. At least that's how it's been for me the few times I've done that today.— Jeff Gerstmann (@jeffgerstmann) November 11, 2020
While Gerstmann’s system hasn’t completely bricked up, it’s clear that the PS5 has problems with storage. We don’t know how widespread this problem is, but if it has happened to at least two people with units that were available prior to launch, it will clearly plague a number of owners on launch day on November 12th and beyond.
What causes it While we don’t know the exact technical problem, one game seems to be the main culprit: Marvels Spider-Man remastered. This remaster is a bonus for Marvels Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition owners who paid an additional $ 20 to experience an updated version of the PS4 classic.
“Seems like you’re putting a PS5 into sleep mode while you’re doing this Spider-Man remastered runs runs crashes the whole system “, wrote Gerstmann,” and forces the process of “repairing your external drive” when you start again. ”
This seems to have been ACG’s problem too, like him
that and said “cross your fingers for a quick patch on it.”

How can this problem be prevented? From now on, Marvels Spider-Man remastered seems to be the cause of this PS5 bug. Because of this, it’s probably a good idea Avoid Gambling Marvels Spider-Man remastered until it’s either patched or we learn more about the specifics of this issue. If you can’t play the remaster anymore, all you have to do is be careful how you go about it.
While playing Marvels Spider-Man Remastered, Make sure you have finished the game completely before putting your PS5 to sleep. Since the PS5 doesn’t offer a quick resume, the best way to determine this problem is to simply start another game like Demon souls before putting your PS5 to sleep.
If you do any of these things you should be able to avoid the PS5 error completely. Hopefully we don’t have to wait long until a Marvels Spider-Man remastered or PS5 system update corrects this problem.
