PS4 Firmware Update v1.62


Earlier today, Sony released a new, 336MB firmware update for PS4, called v1.62.  But what does it do exactly?

Sony have released a statement, saying, “Operation quality during use of some PlayStation 4 format software has been improved,” which is vague, to say the least.

Unfortunately, PS4 users are still waiting on numerous updates that were shown off during Sony’s reveal of it last year; including a suspend and resume functionality, which will allow players to stop playing at any time and start from where they left off.

The PS4 is still missing some its promised features

Whether this will have any noticeable effect on released or upcoming games, we’ll have to wait and see if any eagle-eyed gamer can spot anything.

Furthermore, unlike most, there appears to be no reason why this update was brought on.  No gamers have complained about the PS4’s performance, so I can’t help but wonder if the time used to develop this update could have been better spent on delivering the aforementioned promised features sooner.

Of course, if any more specific information on the update is released, you can expect this article to have an update of its own not long after.
