Ahead of the system’s Japanese launch this Saturday, Sony has pushed a new mandatory firmware to the PlayStation 4. The new firmware, version 1.61, improves “system stability.”
We decided to dig a little deeper to see if we could find out what the “stability” entails for this update. To our delight, we discovered that the Share button works again. Previously, there was a bug that made the PS4 stop recording after the first few minutes of gameplay, but it looks like that problem has been fixed. Share on PlayStation gamers. Share on.
Firmware 1.61 is only 336 MB and is required if you want to continue to log onto your Sony Entertainment Network account on the PlayStation 4.
