Hogwarts Legacy not working for PlayStation users till they change this setting

Hogwarts Legacy not working for PlayStation users till they change this setting

Fortunately, there's a straightforward fix.

Unfortunately, not everyone on new-gen systems is able to start Hogwarts Legacy without a hitch. Particularly those on PlayStation 5, a small but significant setting on the console is causing the game to not start at all, and if you're in that camp, then we've got the solution.

Hogwarts Legacy has a staggered launch, so only those on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series consoles have got the game. For years, this RPG was one of the most anticipated games for Harry Potter fans who had been waiting for an expansive open world take on the series.

Nevertheless, Hogwarts Legacy has been besieged with controversies, such as the opinions of former lead designer Troy Leavitt, accusations of antisemitism in its central conflict and association with author J. K. Rowling's public transphobia.

Take a tour of Hogwarts Legacy's common rooms for Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin below:

Even those who have tried to offset the potential damage done to transgender communities by the game have been criticised, with Girlfriend Reviews ending their stream after Shelby had become emotional over the hate they were getting.

Evidently, it's a tough one to square away for a lot of players. To those who have purchased Hogwarts Legacy on the PlayStation 5, some might have encountered an unfortunate issue where the game won't start at all.

This could be due to the fact that you're running your console on the system software beta. There are two fixes. The first is to enter the system settings, select "system software" and choose "stop using beta." And then the other is to enter system settings again, select "users and accounts", then "other" and then "restore licenses."

Thanks to Reddit user LeeShawBrown's announcement, a number of aggrieved Hogwarts Legacy players are now able to get stuck into the game.
