PS4 Firmware Update 4.72 Introduces Online Status Bug; Here’s How To Fix It

Sony has released a brand new PS4 firmware update yesterday that mostly relates to the stability of the system software, but some users are now reporting that it has also introduced a bug with the online status of the PSN account.

If you have installed the new firmware update, there is a chance that you might be seen as ‘offline’ on PSN even if you are actually online and have set your status on PS4 to online.
