Here’s another PlayStation 4 system update (PS4 5.0) is available to download now. More stability improvements are on the way? Not much as we are expected earlier.
According to patch notes, update 4.73 simply improves the quality of the system performance on the PS4 console. Other than that, don’t expect it to do too much. It weighs in at around 340MB, and it’s mandatory to install – just turn your PS4 on and the update should being downloading automatically. It follows another update, released last month, that also improved system performance.
Sony announced that the PS4’s big 5.0 update is on the way. Beta sign ups now available, open already. As per Sony itself, beta will start in “early August,” through there’s currently no clue as to when the upgrade will be released for all. No exact information on what the patch will include.
The last big PS4 update, 4.50, added Boost Mode for PS4 Pro owners an external hard drive support, among other things. The Boost Mode feature aims to improve the quality and performance of games that haven’t been patched to support PS4 Pro.
