Bioware's newest game Anthem seems to be a buggy mess as it has been accused of crashing PlayStation 4 gaming consoles to the point where Sony is issuing refunds for the game's purchase. Some are reporting that their PlayStation 4 consoles no longer work after Anthem crashes the console. Luckily someone figured out how to force the console to boot into safe mode and then choose "Rebuild Database" to repair the damage. Anthem also crashes Xbox One gaming consoles. Today, a new bug was discovered that makes the level one starting rifle the best gun in the game. Bioware Technical Design Director Brenon Holmes joined the Reddit thread to tell players that the Anthem team needs to investigate it as "scaling systems are supposed to allow low level players to play with high level players to be effective against high level enemies. This is not intended, something ain't right there..." Community Manager UNTDrew "confirmed with the team that this is in fact a bug related specifically to the default items on a loadout in combination with higher level gear you have equipped. It's not functioning as intended and the team is working on it for an upcoming fix." Maybe old Bioware has become a distant memory? Like the PS4 crash, my crashes on Xbox didn't just restart the console, they act like someone yanked the cord out of the wall completely. My Xbox is usually on "sleep" mode as in, when it's off, it's not really off as you can boot it quickly to get back to what you were playing. But both times when Anthem crashed during a mission and shut off the console, it was off off, as in the entire console had to restart from scratch.
