test only for no all caps rule I REALLY STRESS IT, EVERYONE. DO NOT CONTINUE USING ANTHEM. ANTHEM HAS A MAJOR BUG THAT CAN COMPLETELY HARD CRASH YOUR PLAYSTATION 4. YES, REALLY. A HARD CRASH IS WHERE THE PS4 SHUTS DOWN SUDDENLY, AS IF THE POWER JUST GOT CUT OFF. A SOFT CRASH IS WHERE THE GAME CRASHES TO PS4 LOBBY. THERE ARE TWO WAYS YOUR PLAYSTATION 4 CAN HARD CRASH; WHEN TRYING TO CLOSE ANTHEM AND WHEN MATCHMAKING OR PLAYING. I REALLY STRESS THIS TO EVERYONE. THIS IS THE VERY FIRST GAME IN WHICH A HARD CRASH CAN CAUSE YOUR PLAYSTATION 4 TO BRICK FOREVER, MEANING THAT YOUR PS4 MIGHT SUDDENLY NO LONGER BE ABLE TO BOOT UP, THUS LOSING ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM AND HAVING TO FORMAT THE SYSTEM TO GET IT WORKING AGAIN.

This is true. In my case, my PS4 shut down and became completely unresponsive for several minutes. I honestly thought my PS4 had blown a cap or something. Then it restarted in safe mode and did a few checks I've never seen before, including downloading the system firmware, but it was fine after that.
Never heard of an actual bricking before, though. I suppose that can happen if the firmware is corrupted and the console thinks you were trying to mod your console or something.

I'm not buying this story until I see a video of this.. I've played this game I know maybe 70+ hours and while the actual game has crashed.. my system has never cut off and I have a PS4 pro
I'm sure it's happen to someone but I highly doubt it happened to the majority of players.. the friends I've played with for just as long if not longer than I have haven't experienced the PS4 cutting off on them either
I really think this is a collusional effort to try and kill this game because people weren't happy with the game or the state it was released in and sad to see because the gameplay is the most fun I've had in years and has great potential.
The game has many bugs and problems for sure (that's going to be fixed soon) but unless I see proof of the crashes.. This scare tactic to keep people from even buying the game to see for themselves how much fun the game is to play and the potential it can have is very sad
