PlayStation 4 gets a new firmware update today, which seems to be mandatory and improves overall system stability.
This news was revealed on twitter by Chris Owen, Community Manager at PlayStation Europe. According to him, this new update “provides general enhancements to the PS4 system’s stability”. He also added that this is “mainly back end stuff to improve stability”, so don’t expect new features in this firmware update.
You can download the update through your PS4 and since it is mandatory, you would have to do so. This PS4 Firmware Update 1.61 is about 320-330 MB in size. If you have a Region 2 PS4, you can go to the site here and download it from there. If you live in NA and have Region 1 PS4, download it from here.
