Roblox PS4 News
Do you have a PS4 and wish to play Roblox on it? So let me tell you Roblox is not yet available on the console and there is no official date for its release. You must have thought if Roblox is available for Xbox One then why not on PlayStation 4? So why is it not on PS4? Here are two main theories and possibilities as to why the game is not on PS4.
- Roblox has signed an exclusive deal with Xbox One, so it could not launch the game on other gaming consoles. It is quite normal in the world of video games.
- May be PS4 does not want to have Roblox on its gaming console. It could be a legitimate reason for the one fact that Roblox on Microsft’s platform is apparently a poor port. The interface is not so user friendly, users are inaccessible to regular stores and chats are unavailable.
Jack Hendrik (JackInTheBlox) on July 1, 2016, during ROBLOX stream’s The Next Level, said “Soon, but it’s in production. It’s been confirmed, we are working on it for the PS4, but I don’t have a release date for you guys“.

- Blinking Blue Indicator Light
Three years from now this issue has been a nightmare for most of the users. Following the lead of Xbox 360’s “Red Ring of Death,” the blinking blue line indicates a technical problem. It could mean your console is no longer functional. In contrast to the red ring the “Blue Line of Death” does not mean your PS4 is dead it lets you know that there is a serious problem.
- Blinking Red Indicator Light
Reports of this issue of “Red Line of Death” is not as widespread as the “Blue Line of Death” but that does not make it less serious. On consoles facing the problem of “Red Line of Death,” the LED light on the side of the console flashes a red light repeatedly that eventually power-offs after the system shoots three different beeps. It happens due to the overheating of the system as mentioned in the PS4 user guide and perhaps could be a result of a fan malfunction.
- A Damaged HDMI Port and Faulty HDMI Cables
This issue may not be specifically related to PlayStation 4 but users reported some trouble originating from a damaged HDMI port shipping on their PS4 units. However, this trouble leads to lack of audio or video output on the TV and is usually caused by a connection error occurring from a bent piece of metal in the console’s built-in HDMI port. This completely makes the port inappropriate because the bent piece cannot be correctly connected with the HDMI cord.
- Damaged DualShock 4 Analog Sticks
There are plenty of good things about the DualShock 4 controller but the soft rubber padding on its analog sticks can easily tear while playing a game that demands quick movements. But you do not need to quit playing with the controller just because the rubber tears down. You can use analog stick covers such as GelTabz, put them right over the analog stick. This will give you a more satisfying gaming experience while guarding the stick itself.
If you encountered some different problem from the above mentioned then you may want to search Sony’s error message library and follow the troubleshooting suggestions for the same.
