PS4 Firmware Update Version 5.55 Is Live

Sony has released a brand new firmware update today for the PS4. This firmware patches the system software to version 5.55.

The changelog can be read below. It doesn’t seem to mention much aside from improving software performance which has now replaced the stability updates.

Main features in version 5.55 update

  • This system software update improves system performance.

There is not a lot to show here. One reason of such a minor update could be related to the homebrew scene for the PS4 which seems to be accelerating at a rapid pace. Currently it is possible to exploit firmware upto version 5.05 so maybe Sony are being cautious about it and updating the firmware to patch any securitt exploit.

PS4 has received a major firmware update with the jump to system software 5.50. This update was the one that added supersampling for all PS4 Pro users letting them enjoy enhanced visuals if the game doesn’t natively support downsaming from a higher resolution.

The download size for this latest update is around 460 MB. It should he live now on all Sony servers worldwide so if you haven’t managed to get a prompt to download it, it should happen soon.

Let us know if you have noticed any changes after installing this new firmware update in the comments below.
