Posted September 16, 2018 08:00:33 Sony has updated its PS4 firmware to fix a bug that prevented the console from being able to update itself, and is now the latest developer to update the software.
Sony announced the change on Twitter earlier today, stating that a firmware update had been released today and the update was being pushed to customers.
The update fixes a bug with the PS4 which could result in the console being unable to update, meaning it could not launch the latest version of the PS3 or PS4.
The bug affects the PlayStation 4 Pro, which supports 4K resolutions and is expected to become available to those who purchase a new console later this year.
Sony’s PS4 Pro also offers a number of additional features, including support for wireless connectivity, USB 3.0, HDR support, a new HDMI output, and more.
The update comes after a number months of bugs and issues, with some gamers reporting that the update would not work for them.
It was originally expected that the PS5 would get a firmware upgrade this summer, but that hasn’t happened.
It’s unclear what changes are planned for the PSVita, which is the first PS4 to come out of Sony’s new business unit, but the company said on Friday that it would be “adding a number” of features to the console over the next few months.
