The problem persists even after many of them have tried repeatedly only to receive the error message of Application could not be read.
One reddit user alia94 also reported that there were problems in in-game cut-scenes as well.
I managed to do the first part of gameplay but a cutscene just froze it again, think the cinematically are a bit too much to handle for my PS4, gameplay was buttery smooth though
