The PlayStation 4 launch is humming along nicely, despite some reports of busted consoles and a buggy day-one firmware update. Sony is on the case! Yesterday the PlayStation Blog posted an item to report that the latest version of the PlayStation 4 firmware—version 1.51—was available to download.
Here’s what it’ll do for you, if you haven’t downloaded it already:
“With this minor required update, stability of system software has been improved. In addition, minor refinements to elements of the system UI (such as clearly indicating when a user downloads a game and a game patch at the same time) have been introduced.”
So that’s good! Right? Right.
And what’s even better—if, in fact, this update actually stabilizes everything and makes it work good and stuff—is that it’ll help the console’s launch in territories outside North America, like Europe and Latin America, go that much better. It seems pretty apparent by now that version 1.50 was the source of some, if not all, of the issues with the PlayStation 4 launch. Perhaps 1.51 will solve all these problems.
Or, maybe it’ll create a whole host of new problems! Oh yes, it’s a great time to be alive.
Have you downloaded the new firmware? Are things working better?
