1d ago - Following Sony's PS3 bans, today the first PlayStation 4 banning has been reported with the user's PS4 console receiving PSN error code E-82E0001D.
When the user was about to play Battlefield 4 Online this weekend, he received the following error code message: [E-82E0001D]
Apparently, the user was previously banned on the PS3 because of modding, meaning he most likely used the same PSN account.
To quote (via community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-4-Support/PS4-got-banned-from-PSN-E-82E0001D/m-p/42393327#M25588): VastmanisH: PS4 got banned from psn on day 1, i played BF 4 last night, and when i came online , it showed me this. I need explanation now, so mad right now. Sony why you do dissss , Unban me please!
A Laggy Christmas: I got no mail, I was banned on ps3 too, so maybe because of that, but it was 8 months ago and because of modding.
I called and they were no help, they just said that this ban is permanent and because of a TOS violation.

6d ago - 2K Games Senior Community Manager Ronnie Singh posted up a video today showcasing NBA 2K14 as part of their PS4 Developer Diary dubbed MyCAREER on PlayStation 4.
To quote: MyCAREER has been one of NBA 2K14's most-played modes. The question is, with the next generation of technology, how do we create a fresh experience beyond playing games on the court? Creating a new cinematic experience that rivals a Hollywood film - that's how!
With over 300 pages of script, MyCAREER on PS4 takes you on an emotional journey like you've never experienced before. Our goal was to place you IN the game. From competing on the court, to decisions you make off the court, the experience has been expanded in an immersive journey through next gen technology.
For example, early on you may not get the minutes you want as a rookie. As your team calls a timeout, you have a decision to make - remain sitting or get up and celebrate with your teammates. Each decision affects the way you are viewed both from your team's viewpoint and the way fans look at you. This is just one of many deep decisions you make, with your actions opening up hours and hours of completely new content both on and off the court.
