One lucky individual got his PlayStation 4 ahead of the launch and isn’t shy in sharing the details openly with the public.
Already downloaded the Patch on my Flashdrive so I'm good and you would need internet to use the browser anyway so not a problem.
Where did you get it? Can I get a link please?
it as posted online a while back. i got mine as well cause on launch day you know the server are gonna be hit hard
http://gearnuke.com/playsta... Scroll below in the article to find the links.
here http://www.neogaf.com/forum... if your unsure you can wait for it to be posted on Playstation site but i have it downloaded just incase it isn't posted day one on the Playstation site.
Yeah, none of the online features are activated yet.
Should consider getting it again post launch considering the trouble that XB1 owner had with downloading an early version of that patch.
The XB1 dashboard is still in a closed beta and is receiving daily patches and updates to get it all ready for launch. The guy who got his console banned was because he's not part of the closed beta for obvious reasons, and was only able to download the available then and can't download any updates until the ban is lifted on launch day.
Not seeing how that doesn't rule out any last minute changes or revisions Sony may have to do with their patch. Should at least check the version to make use you're up to date. Better safe than sorry.
I also got the patch and the restore (just in case). Credit to N4G user BadleyPackedKeebab, https://drive.google.com/fo...
Either way the patch will likely be available for direct download via the PlayStation site as always. So as long as one has an internet connection, and a thumb drive, then one can get it from there (if the PSN is swamped day one).
I'm pretty sure if you can read this article, you will be just fine... And if you don't have internet (not to be inconsiderate), you won't be missing too much as it seems the update mainly focuses on the online functionality of the console.
Um... that patch is a mislabeled v1.0, not the 1.5 day one... Some hackers pulled the update file apart and saw that it was mislabeled.
I have read in another article that the update they released isn't the Day One update.
cool by me
well that's still better than xbox one without the patch you cant even play offline its a giant paperweight
Well it's obvious that if you don't have the ps4 connected to the internet you can't use the browser, so no problem here :)
I love how they're tossing in standard features with a past minute patch. Not that anyone preferred the atrocity of a browser on the last system. Does anyone know if this one is any better?
Anyone know if it will support flash, i know its being discontinued, but alot of aites still use it instead of html5
I will wait for update off Sony, don't trust them links
I love 30 minutes away from amazon. I'm gonna try to get my ps4 tomorrow when it ships. So stoked
Why is this even news, like if you want to USE the INTERNET browser then you obviously have ACCESS to the INTERNET, so downloading the patch isn't anything to mention. I can understand if you were locked out of your console until you download a patch, but this seems to be pointless. How did this get approved smh.
Apparently someone thinks you can access the internet without internet.
they thought the LTE connection on PS4 could be used
Does it have a better browser than the PS3 because that one was lousy?
apparently not great but faster than the Vita or PS3 one
Ps3 browser has been improved a lot if you compare it to launch . Even if it's the same as the ps3 one sony will improve it in the future. Gaming features must be ready because that's what we need mostly . As for others i can wait..
minor nuances, as long as I can play games with it even without internet is what matters
well if you have internet to use the browser then being able to update it is a given
