Updated: Sony is Catching Up with PS4 Firmware Updates, Firmware 1.74 Released

By   /   Jul 22, 2014

Delivering its promise, Sony Computer Entertainment has released a new firmware update for Playstation 4.

Contrary to what everyone expected, firmware update 1.74 brings only one feature to the table i.e. “system software stability during use of some features has been improved.”

Consider it a reminder to update your Playstation 4 system before you head in to enjoy your Destiny beta.

Original Story:
Speaking with fans in the comments section of the Playstation Blog, Sony Computer Entertainment representative Fred Dutton has confirmed that a new Playstation 4 firmware update is close at hand.

While Sony is ahead of Microsoft in terms of sale figures, Microsoft’s stance on releasing system updates every month has made it a better experience than before!

Sony is apparently taking its time in releasing updates, with only one major update being released since the launch of the console. It looks like fans won’t have to wait any longer as a new update is just around the corner.

In response to a fan asking whether the company has any PS4 firmware update in the pipeline, Dutton stated:

Yes, more news on PS4 firmware updates very soon. Stay tuned!

When asked about a possible release window, Dutton again sufficed with ‘Coming Soon’ phrase:

Alas, not at present. More info to come soon though.

Although no possible features/changes were discussed, there is at least this assurance that an update is indeed headed our way.

Fans have been clamouring for 3D Blu-Ray support, MP3 support, a YouTube app., and external hard drive support for a long time. Now that Microsoft has outlined support for 3D Blu-Ray Discs in its upcoming August update, do you think Sony will also take some steps for a much-needed feature?

It also appears that Microsoft pays heed to what its fans’ demand via Xbox Feedback. The inclusion of low battery notification and 3D Blu-Ray support are some examples of it.
