Sony PlayStation today released a new system update for the PS4.
Today’s latest update brings the console version to 7.51 and will require players to download the latest patch before continuing.
The latest PS4 patch requires 471.4MB of space, but if you were hoping for some great life-changing features, you might be disappointed.
Today’s latest update does just one thing. Namely to improve the performance of the system.
Sony’s official patch notes contain the following details:
“This system software update improves system performance.”
So it’s easy to be disappointed.
However, the update could have a deeper significance, as the wccftech.com team pointed out.
According to the Tech site, last month’s 7.50 firmware update caused many users to report numerous issues.
The main ones were the errors that prevented PS4 discs from reading (Error SU-42118-6).
Some users have also reported that they cannot eject the discs. Obviously very important, even in 2020 when there is an increasing importance on digital downloads.
âThe PlayStation 4 7.50 system software update seems to come with some issues that cause consoles to malfunction,â originally wrote Francesco De Meo of wccftech.
Several users report that the new firmware can force a loop in safe mode and even lead to Bluray player issues. At the same time, there are many who do not experience any malfunction, so it is not yet clear what is causing all of these. problems. Sony has not fixed the problem yet, and we will provide an update once the company does. ”
So while today’s update is minor, it may fix some major issues in the background.
We’ll probably have to wait and see what users are reporting online before we find out how useful this update really is.
