Apparently the not so brilliant minds at Sony, forgot the pause option and left a delete only option. This is something they need to hear and fix right away, I'm stuck with a lot of game downloads on the background and can't even play online properly because the **bleep** downloads are hogging up the bandwidth. I truthfully love the PS4 but Sony screwed up big time with the OS it is a good looking OS but it is AWFUL when it comes to using, they removed all the useful options, features and customization the PS3's XMB offered.

Don't forget the feature to change the background color and theme.

"...Sony screwed up big time..." is a bit extreme dont you think? This can all be added in a firmware updated. Its only the first week, soon updates will be rolling out with all kinds of goodies.

If you go into settings and Uncheck "Connect to Internet" and wait a couple minutes untill you see downloads failed. Then check the box again. The downloads will not resume until you click on them and hit resume one at a time. I've resorted to doing this on several occasions. Needs a perm fix.

There was no need to necrobump this.  It, as far as I know, is already on the PS4 Update Wishlist.
