New System Update in the Works for PS3, PS4

Posted June 26, 2014 by Kat in News

A new system update looks to be in the works coming from Sony to address issues with the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.  Though not a lot of information was given about this update, only that it will release “soon” it is described as looking to improve the system software stability for both consoles “during use of some features.”  This will mark version 1.72 for the PS4 and version 4.60 for the PS3.

The news of this new update was announced on the PlayStation Twitter.  It’s not yet known if there will be any new apps included with this upgrade, as has been the case in the past, particularly in recent months with upgrades for the PS4.  The next-gen console received version 1.71 just a few weeks ago on June 3.  And earlier iterations of these improvements have introduced such significant features as the SHAREfactory app and the ability to pre-load purchased games from the digital store, thereby bypassing the wait time in downloading a new game at its release.

PlayStation Now is also expected to launch this summer, serving as Sony’s streaming game service.  Though the feature is currently in beta, it will eventually be available for the PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita.
