PS4 Firmware Update 2.51 Is Out Now, Changelog Reveals Stability Fix

PS4 2.51 firmware update is now live on the official Sony servers. This is another mandatory firmware update for the PlayStation 4 that weights in at about 245 MB. According to the changelog, it mostly deals with stability of the firmware and there doesn’t seem to be any new additional features.

Sony had accidentally updated the official website last week listing 2.51 firmware update as being out on 16th April, but this mistake was later removed. You can read all about this from here.


This time, the update is out for real and you can download it from the following links.

The changelog can be read below.

Main features in version 2.51 update

  • System software stability during use of some features has been improved.
  • Operation quality during use of some applications has been improved.

The last major firmware update for the PS4 was released at the end of March and it finally bought the much awaited Suspend/Resume feature for the PlayStation 4. If the changelog of this latest update is any indication, it has more to do with fixing the Suspend/Resume features for some of the games like Destiny and Bloodborne.

Let us know if you have updated to this latest version of the firmware in the comments below.
