Original Story:

The latest PlayStation 4 firmware update is now live. If you own a PlayStation 4, you can download system software update 1.75 now. As we reported last week, the firmware adds support for 3D Blu-Rays on the console. Because we haven’t actually had the chance to test out the firmware ourselves,we’re not sure if any other features were snuck in or if the SHARE button was fixed. The firmware update is 194 MB so it’s not too large.

    • Jessey

      You know who? You mean he who must not be named?

  • Duane nisbet

    My avengers 3d dont work with update?/?

    • DudeFaceofAmerica

      Do you have a 3D TV? 🙂

  • Jan Compaf


  • Just installed it a couple of days ago, not much has changed but better than no update.

    • I am a meat popsicle

      No you didn’t, V.1.75 only came out this morning

      • Must have been a different update then.

      • Hombre Holmes

        man i just updated mine and my effin controllers won’t sync now, anything else having that issue? i’ve reset them any everything can’t get passed the push the ps button screen

        • Phoenix Maybe

          Yea that happened to me a while back. I think I just plugged my controller to the PS4 with a USB cable and pressed (or held I don’t remember) the home button. If it still doesn’t work google it.

  • James Truax

    Where the Hell is our flash player..I want to be able to pay cds watch YouTube maybe change my screensaver on my ps4…Sony this is a next gen we are supposed to have more features not less

    • I am a meat popsicle

      Flash is dead, Adobe don’t support it anymore on platforms like consoles
      It’s all about HTML 5 now
      Sony can’t update Flash when Adobe have dropped supporting it

      • James Truax

        Flash player Sony dead it’s the only way to stream movie on the online movie sites if was dead then those sore would have updated to something else

        • fjortisar

          Youtube is switching to HTML5 (most videos already are), Netflix had used silverlight for a long time, and is almost completely transitioned to HTML5 playback now

          • James Truax

            Dude YouTube already switched lol but it still don’t work that great on ps4 browser and who ever carries the Netflix app gets it it had nothing to do with the Brower lol

      • Stormbrew

        you can use this link if you want to use youtube. using your ps4 browser go to and it will work just fine.

    • Jester

      Yeah flash doesn’t seem to be an ongoing platform.


      Wired mic sucks and is inconvenient. Can’t believe we don’t have some of the basics PS3 had. I feel like they’re holding off on BT support to get people to buy Pulse headsets and what not.

      • James Truax

        Dude i think it’s very convenient that you can just plug in your head phones right out of your phone into your controller and have a Mic nothing wrong there

        • Jester

          It is convenient. It’s nice to have options but you can’t replace something that worked better.

          With bluetooth on you could walk around without having to disconnect the mic or you could carry your controller around which is pretty inconvenient. Simplicity and convenience is the future, bluetooth is just that. Not just that but the mic fits like crap.

          I could understand if they have to release some major hardware for this to work but apparently the console already has bluetooth technology but it’s not active for headsets. All it takes is a software update, I feel like they’re doing this on purpose.

      • bizzy gie

        YES! I have PX4s that I payed $150 for. I payed for WIRELESS connectivity. It 100% defeats the purpose of wirelessness when I have to plug in a wire anyway. I almost bought Gold Wireless headsets. They’re 7.1 surround sound while PX4s are only 5.1. However, the mic quality is so bad because it’s built in. Like Pulse, it supports complete Bluetooth connection. Those are the only two headsets though.

        Sony needs to stop being so greedy. Give me the wireless connection I payed for.

    • Level Zero

      Youtube works anyway…

      • James Truax

        YouTube works a little through the Brower there’s no app and half the videos play….They only play through hmtl which is mp3 every other site you want to stream videos require flash which is mp4

    • Stormbrew

      try on your ps4 web browser. it works for me.

    • freddy_uk

      PS4 has HTML 5 which is better. most website have HTML 5 video player . youtube there an app for that. music mp3 on a stick

  • Prince Farley

    Sweet keep it up sony!

  • Jones

    are we going to get online friend notifications?

  • DudeFaceofAmerica

    I was playing my PS4 with a wire from my PX4 to my controller for chat and wondering how on earth this ever happened in next-gen. Seriously, inexcusable.

    • Jessey


      • JB

        I think he’s talking about the Turtle Beach PX4 headset in which you need a chat cable attached to the controller so you can chat. Which to my knowledge is just the function of those particular headphones and not indicative of the console itself. Lol

        • Jesse Krupnick

          I have xp 500s and they are wireless but sony has brilliantly made me buy a sony chat cable because it is somehow not compatable even though the ps4 has bluetooth and so does my headphones so they are making everyone buy new shit by their own brand so you all can spend more money yay! Let’s all just forget about the hundreds we all already spent on our headphones and just but sony’s piles of shit huh? yeah we should…

          • blzzy_gie

            You even have to pay to subscribe to their music service before you can any hear music as they have locked out any way of playing your own.

        • DoctorRabbitfoot

          Most USB wireless headsets are basically unusable due to low volume (an issue that has been present since launch). Some wireless headsets don’t work at all.

    • Steven Smith

      I am not a cheap bastard and bought the Playstation Gold Wireless Headset. Works perfect

      • Brock Landers

        You are a cheap bastard. I paid $300 for my headsets. Still has a fucking wire to the controller. Sony is delaying this on purpose to get sheeple like you to buy their shit.

      • JB

        The cheap argument isn’t really viable, considering that the PX4 is $150 MSRP vs the PS Gold’s $100 price point. Though if you’re lucky you can get the PX4s for around the same price on sale.

      • James Truax

        If say if you can plug the head phones from your phone into your ps controller and have a micthat Is the shit homie no other consle does that no complaints there

    • jfelts

      They make a wireless adapter. I think it’s like 40 from turtle beach. Stupid right?

  • lassenwolf

    worthless update 3d tvs are dead and so is non 3ds 3d games. sony has giving the ps4 nothing it said it would. ps4 plus is worthless without a ps3

    • Guest

      What a whiny little b*tch you are, eh? You over entitled douche. You’re worthless.

      • lassenwolf

        lol and look how you had to reply. Had to say something. I’m glad it bothers you. Im glad your so worried what I say about a product. another waste of time reading what I said if yout bothered , Eh, Must be entitled dumb englishman

        • Guest

          Was that even English? And sorry to break it to you, but i dont care. Later dumbass.

  • I would love if they can Make Twitch Streaming full screen with video in video option instead of taking up half the screen with the chat box.

  • Direct Uploads to Youtube would be Nice also.

  • Also increase the The Share feature to around 30 mins.

  • Brock Landers

    Sony since we are know paying yearly like Xbox you better get your shit together. Before I just kept my mouth shut because it was free. Because as it stands right now you can’t hold a candle to Microsoft’s services. BTW I’m not a MS fanboy.

  • Peter Rogers

    Anyone having a cry about their headsets just purchase the ps4 gold headset. Its quality wireless and has 7.1 surround. Excellent sound quality and cheap as chips

    • Gabe

      I personally think that the gold headset looks really ugly, i prefer the pulse. But then the gold headset is only like $100

      • Peter Rogers

        Who gives a shit wot they look like tho.even tho in my opinion they look good

      • jfelts

        Pulse has more base but for the price I’m not sure it’s worth it.

        • jfelts

          Bass that is

    • JB

      I may get one eventually, but I’m fine with what I’m rocking now. I mean a cable isn’t going to destroy my world nor make me enjoy my game any less. Plus my headphones also work with my other systems, which that’s more important to me than anything else outside of sound and comfort.

    • realist


      • Peter Rogers

        Hehe thanks I try

    • jfelts

      Make sure to use the ps4 sound app to increase potential.

  • Hombre Holmes

    anyone having an issue where their controllers won’t sync to ps4 now that they’ve updated? i can’t get past the ‘press PS button’ screen

    • jfelts

      You’ll need to resync, that happens to me when I don’t use a controller for a long time. Especially after no charge and then sitting for awhile.

  • Elhijodelrio

    before uodate was able to see what my ps3 friends were playing not now,am pissed

  • REP

    Messages should be display on top right…or middle like Xbox…not top left. It’s distracting…whoever come up with that idea is a retard.

    • jfelts

      Agreed. Why not just give us an option so we can put it wherever the hell we want?

  • Rob

    Me: PS4, I want to change the color of my blue background.

    PS4: That is not possible Dave.

    Me: *whispers* Your little brother, the PS3, is better than you.

    PS4: What was that Dave?

    Me: Nothing!

  • Adam

    Is anyone having trouble with a crackle sound when playing now? Ever since update 1.75 my sound crackles. I usually play with headphones and it is much more noticeable with them than the T.V. But both have a crackle. It sucks. I CANT STAND HEARING IT. My PS4 is about 4 months old I would think. It played fine until this F-in update. Anyone else having the same issue. Does anyone else play through headphones?

  • Section8

    Bullshit. They only pushed this through so people will buy 3d movies. 3d movies are garbage anyway. What we need is mp3 and mp4 support. And a new UI.

    • Matt Pace

      Amen to that. I don’t care about all that 3d shit either
