    Came across this article on a Facebook group I’m in. I’ve come across VG247 a number of times and think it’s a legit site but not 100% certain this isn’t “fake news”. Thought I’d share in any case.

    Read about it in a few places, like you not seen any real proof one way or the other though. Although from what I read it doesn't brick the console, a factory reset will apparently fix it.

    Can't really do any harm to set your messages to private anyway I guess.

    @The_Goon VG247 is legit -- it's one of our (Gamer Network's) sites. In fact, we're just about to celebrate its 10th anniversary!

    Oh we know all about your floozy VG247.

    Tell us, what exactly is it they have that we don't?

    Here we are slaving over a hot thread while you're off gallavanting all over the place with god knows who.

    We are THIS close Craigy... You stole our best years. Now you just want to trade us in for a cheap thrill...

    @Load_2.0 just you wait and see what I've been up to with USgamer these last few months. It'll break your heart. I can't get enough of the accents over there.

    Neither, it's more Bowsette fanart that's the real hot topic.

    C'mon guys' we all know there's no article space due to Black Ops fever hitting the staff. All spare space has been allotted to BO4 story's.

    This hack is true. My nephew had it happen to him last night. When he turns his console on now, he can navigate menus for about five seconds before he gets a generic error message and his whole console locks up. This was all triggered by a message from “a friend of a friend” 🙄

    Login via the PS mobile app or website and delete the message from there. That fixes it.
