I have gotten a couple of party chat glitches since the update. Always happy to hear Sony are keeping on top of things and updating regularly

Hope they sneak in video chat.

I keep on having apps crashing... and game updates... no games so far though

BoriboyShoGUN1484d ago

Cueil, I was having a few crashes myself but a friend recommended for me to update licenses. After that I've been just fine, lets just hope I didnt jinx it.

sdozzo1485d ago

Firmware is always coming soon. That's how it works.

Fishy Fingers1485d ago

Exactly. You don't have to be an "insider" to state the obvious.

shivvy241485d ago

From the article.
"but apparently a new version is on the way according to industry insider Tidux, that has proven several times to be privy to what is going on at Sony."

LOL, the insider, Tidux, also said that the 1.7 update was the biggest in terms of size when allegedly asked by Dualshockers.
"I went ahead and asked Tidux whether that comparison includes the very sizable day one 1.5 patch (that weighed aa rather hefty 308 Mb) and enabled critical features like remote play, sharing and the ability to play games while downloading, and he replied “for sure.”"

It turns out the 1.7 was only 194mb, way smaller than the 308mb of the day one patch. I'll leave it at that and let you guys figure it out. Of course new firmwares are coming, it is only logical but these insiders knowledge of what is actually in them is just all guestimate at best and Dualshockers keep using their words as reliable.

The only real insider on FW updates for PS4 is this person -->

Yo Mama1485d ago (Edited 1485d ago )


If it would have included ShareFactory instead of it being a stand alone download, it would have been the biggest FW update. How do you know Sony didn't separate the two after the fact?

LetoAtreides821484d ago

Don't forget that the ShareFactory app is a seperate download, so it's bigger than just 194mb. He knew way too much to not be an insider.

Not unusual to have a quick update after a big update to fix bugs.

Let's hope next time it doesn't break all my social features.
But to be fair to them,they seemed to be fixed the next day.

Clown_Syndr0me1484d ago

Disagree all you like fanboys, but the official playstation support forum was flooded with complaints about broken social features after 1.7.

Atleast I was fair by saying it seemed to be fixed the next day!
