Yes to all, the time has come once again. Sony has graced the PlayStation 4 with another system software update, bringing the firmware to version 8.52. So what does this new 481MB patch do? Let’s not beat around the bush – here are the official patch notes for this latest firmware:
“This system software update improves system performance.”
There it is, folks. The PS4’s system performance is now even stronger than ever thanks to this latest update. In all seriousness, the next-gen console UI is definitely on the slow side these days, so if there’s any chance this update helped jump-start things that would be great.
In other firmware-related news, Sony has opened subscriptions for a PS5 firmware update beta program. If you want to get started with future updates to Sony’s new system, you will be able to join this new initiative and help test new features, which is very good.
