Going to get this downloaded and be ready to update as soon as my PS4 hits the door.

cleft5986d ago

Grabbing my download right now before the madness that is launch day. I hope Microsoft does something similar for the Xbox One. It just makes sense to give people this option with how hectic launches can be.

guitarded77986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

Damn good idea guys!!!

EDIT: Okay, anyone have a link to the PlayStation page where the download is located? I don't want to use their direct links at the terminalgamer site. Just want to make sure I'm downloading the real thing. Can't find the update on playstation.com.

LakerGamerEnthusiast986d ago

I don't want to just straight away download a random link on a site I don't know.

I agree with guitarded. Can never be to sure these are the real things. does anybody have a link from sony ?

Jack_Of_All_Blades986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

I advise you all to use some cautioj here. As the normal site for downloads of firmware updates is playstation.com
us.playstation.com in my case

The site these files are coming from is playstation.net

Just a word of caution to you guys I sure don't want anyone with a bricked console day one. Greatness awaits!

I traced the link and did a dns look up for you all to confirm links posted at this site are genuine.

Link for ps4 from this website(target):
http://dus01.ps4.update.pla...

Official link from playstation.com
( http://us.playstation.com/s...

Target link is:
http://dus01.ps3.update.pla...

Nslookup:dus01.ps4.update.pla ystation.net

Name: a192.g.akamai.net
Addresses: 184.180.124.16
184.180.124.34

NS Lookup : dus01.ps3.update.playstation.n et
name: a192.d.akamai.net
addresses: 184.180.124.195
184.180.124.144

Same IP range. Also did DNS lookup via dnsgoodies.com and

http://whois.arin.net/rest/...

NetRange 184.176.0.0 - 184.191.255.255
CIDR 184.176.0.0/12

This mean's this whole IP range is dedicated to servers leasing the IP from Cox (USA broadband provider).

No further information but, I know the IP origin is nearby Atlanta, Georgia. I am ~72% sure these are servers, hosted by a company in the area that Sony is leasing space from ( a server farm).

Being that the addresses are similar in IP range and that NSlookup turned up similar Aliases.

I am 100% sure the download is safe.

You are all welcome. And Yes, I have too much time on my hands.

Be forewarned, there is a possibility that this is not "last" official patch 1.50. There could be a patch 1.51 on Friday.

TLDR: Links are legit. Download copy, and wait and see if there is a last minute patch 1.51 on day 1.

ftwrthtx986d ago

All download links come from playstation.net regardless of the platform. PS3, PS Vita & PS4.

I've had a PS3 since launch and figured out the download page for each console so I could quickly access the update file.

The PS3 used to be hard to get updated due to everyone and their brother hammering the site at once. This way I could download the file before the ensuing rush.

Omegasyde986d ago

Just found out that akamai.net is indeed a cloud provider for Sony (and ironically Microsoft).

Links are legit. Playstation is a customer:
http://www.akamai.com/html/...

Ip's listed from download targets are registered with akamai.net (same company as akamai.com)

Ju986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

Even if they weren't, the only harm it can do is hiding a trojan while downloading on a Windows PC. It sure would not install on a PS4 (CRC checks and what not won't pass). This would have to be a hacked firmware which I doubt is already out in the wild before launch. It sure can't brick the PS4.

rainslacker986d ago

@guitarded

I downloaded the update a couple weeks ago directly from the Sony site with the Sony names in the url and all that.

When I downloaded from the US link(first one), chrome reports that it is coming from the same site as the one from a couple weeks ago(never cleared my download list so it's still listed there).

dus01.ps4.update.playstation. ne t although it has different directory structures after that. The file size is slightly larger for this update...about 12KB's.

Hope it works and doesn't crash your brand new PS4!

blakstarz986d ago

Copy it to your USB thumb drive, you can update that way too.

guitarded77986d ago

@ Lwhit6

WTF is wrong with you? Why would you even post that?

mistertwoturbo986d ago

Downloading now, you're absolutely right. Don't want to try and download straight off PSN with the hundreds of thousands of people trying to log on at once. My KZ:SF disc can't wait!!!

Ju986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

I'd rather think millions...and f..k...I got KZ as download...I want to see how this will go over at launch. LOL. There will be smoke at Sony's data centers...

RCslayer986d ago

Hopefully your Ps4 doesn't have to hit the garbage after you install this update from that site, when it isn't up on the Sony site.

TerminalGamer986d ago

Because we know where the consoles look online for their update information and Sony always takes their time updating their website

Xsilver986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

Im gonna replace the old one with this one alright now im ready for my PS4. But in the end ill wait for the one from the official Sony site.

WildArmed986d ago

For all you folks waiting for the official website to update:

neocores986d ago

jonatan221986d ago

SuperBlur986d ago

TerminalGamer986d ago

That was not a legit update from Sony

Neo Nugget986d ago (Edited 986d ago )
