According to rumors, PlayStation 4 firmware 2.0 was scheduled to launch before DriveClub, but seems to have been delayed.
I hope it comes out soon. I want Themes!!!
It would have been nice to have for DriveClub & uploading videos directly to our YouTube accounts. Hopefully around this month it will release.
I was hoping for mp3 support for custom sound tracks in Driveclub.
Hmmm So its been rumored to be delayed from the original rumored release date ??? riiiiiiight I really have no idea about the updates, I have no need for them, I usually only find out they are released when I turn on my ps4 and it updates, I dont understand the excitement for them but what ever floats ppls boats I guess.
No reason to be excited about new features being added to our system... right? I mean, who needs themes, MP3 and video playback, folders, etc. anyway?
Sony never said in Sept, they only said this fall (which is Sept, Oct, Nov). But i really hope this update has all the missing features on the PS4 cuz seriously there is a lot missing.
So I haven't owned a console since the n64, but I am looking into buying a ps4. If I buy say after the new update do I first have to update to the previous one and then update again to 2.0 . I'd rather ask the question here :)
@rainbow If you buy the ps4 after 2.0 comes out I can imagine you would only need to download that one patch on the day you take it home also what ever patches come for the games you may purchase or get free on psn plus.
So true! Did I hear correctly that the Vita update will bring Themes today?
that was 2 days ago, and yes, it has themes now, although there's only 2 available.
I want themes and the ability to play PS4 games remotely on my Xperia Z3.. Lol. hate that it requires the 2.00 update :(
Z3 small print says november PS update required for remote play. http://www.sonymobile.com/u... "* Functionality available on Sony Xperia Z3 starting in November 2014 . "
@ThatOneGuyThere OF COURSE ITS IN THE SMALL PRINT! >_<
@Wicked How can anyone disagree with your comment?!?
I want FOLDERS!!!!
I want dlna or mp3 to play my own music when gaming
I know right?! Personally I want themes, folders, external media and mp3 support. All of the other features Sony is working on are cool but not as needed or requested as features the PS3 already has. I cant wait for custom themes!
This insider from twitter is probably a no-body just guessing. @DarkLord100 Yeah positive thinking is the best thing to do lol.
Dude: Yeah lets build up those positron* tanks dudeeeee!! Bro: Bro, so real, Bro!!!! *-Positive thinking awesome-energy units, dude!!!
Actually no, Tidux is a legitimate source with an excellent track record.
No he's not. Hes someone who made a few obvious guesses spends massive time trying to search info to make educated guesses... people should stop quoting him as newsworthy insider. show me a real connection.
Tidux was right on many things before.... But I like to think positive - so the Firmware Update is coming very soon ^^
Tidux has never been right before unless the information was slipped by official reps on the playstation blog. That's fact not opinion so stop with the spreading of BS!! Everything else he "leaks" is completely unspecific, vague & common sense.
I believe that he probably is correct and it has been delayed, Microsoft have announced DNLA coming in their next update so I am sure Sony will be looking to add that into 2.0 to ensure they do not have missing features compared to the competition.
There's no MP3, XB1 has that, so why would DNLA be a need because Microsoft has it?
Xbone can also play videos you put on your flash drive.
Hopefully they will add all three features soon, but seriously, lol at the disagrees it's like they think I'm an Xbox fanboy but I haven't even bought one YET (have a PS4).
As much as I'd like to be optimistic, I disagree. With MS giving monthly updates Sony is just going to keep falling behind, since they do one every 6 months or so. They can't keep trying to catch the competition. They need to be a leader and set their own standard
You gotta the other way around MS is the one that doing the catching up
PS1/PS2 emulation on PS4 before PS5 comes out and I would be happy. But if they are only putting them on PS Now then I feel the opposite. @GodGinrai They could sell the emulation software on PSN if it comes down to a money thing. Also I think more people would prefer to purchase there favorite classic game then to rent it.
@drpepperdude " But if they are only putting them on PS Now" That is the EXACT reason why they wont do emulation. It is now a selling point for PSnow. emulation will only hurt their PSnow sub's sales. They are certainly aware of that fact.
stopped reading after "According to rumors" lol its coming soon be patient
I understand why u guys wanted no part of always online. BENNIHOP: I believe dlna is already available on xbox 1 or me streaming from my tablet is not dlna.
Take your time Sony, make sure it's awesome :)
It should come before the playstation tv gets here so no later then the 14th of October.
It might have been delayed to patch the package installer that was recently demonstrated on YouTube...
I have a great idea. If they were going to release it before Drive Club what they should've done is have the Drive Club bundle pre-loaded with it and have a exclusive Drive Club theme only available with the bundle.
Personally, I can't wait for the update that comes out in November 2015. Now, that's gonna be juicy. :/
My guess on the 1yr anniversary of the PS4
Personally I assumed that maybe Sony would release it before one there major 1st party titles comes out on the PS4. Seeing the FW for Vita came out this week. Hopefully we will get the FW update shortly after DC launches
My suspicion was correct. A while back I would say about a month ago the head game director said DRIVECLUB comes with the music off by default. He also said in that statement it would be nice to play your own tunes, but hey you never know. I added two and two together and figured the new 2.0 update will probably come out along side DRIVECLUB or before. It won't be too far from DC release, maybe the same week. Oh and yes stating Update 2.0 will bring MP3 support.
It will be nice to have the youtube app and upload to youtube from ps4. Themes meh there wont be any good ones right away or custome ones so im not that excited about that yet.
I %ucking hate how slow Sony is with their updates! Always a hassle to find out when they are coming too and they give you vague information, saying soon then months pass by and still nothing!!!! Yes i know they said in fall and we just started fall but damn man we have been waiting!!!
Well I hope it comes right after driveclub is released. I been waiting to long for this update.
oh bummer thought they meant it was coming out soon :((
Guys i have a question. Ive just recieved my copy of drive club. But i am worried if i play it before its released date they might ban me for some reason. Should i play it right now or should i wait until its official launch date (miserably)
i played it all night and again this morning. go nuts. i'd also be curious to know what you think about it. some occasional server issues are the only problems i've experienced.
How the hell did you have server issues, when most gamers don't even have the game yet? That doesn't bold well, when a few 100K gamers get online to play this game. Is the demo version even available yet to download? I'm going to check that tonight and see.
@xander: I assume the server issues are just because they are ironing out the kinks and getting set up before launch. i wouldn't be too worried yet. and it was only a couple of times. Not sure about the ps+ version. I assume it will be available Tues. I got an early copy of the game through work.
@System22 OMG! OMG! OMG! This game Looks absolutely amazing. And sense of speed is insane. Its hard to believe that this game runs on 30fps coz its as smooth as silk. Bye-Bye Destiny Coz i will be playing DC all day long.
Aww look it's that Phony insider again can believe you all believe in this clown he's a nobody just taking dumb guesses doesn't no way have friends in Sony Top it all Sony hasn't officially confirmed anything yet so just enjoy the waiting game (I know how they work )
Fuk themes fix the UI its slow and and sending messages to people really sucks its just not good over all just good enough to get by same shit they did with ps3 they give you more features and don't address the current issues that really need to be added before themes.
I just want them to get it right , so take as much time as they need. I dont want them to brick my PS4 just because they felt rushed to compete with the XB1 monthly updates.
Besides the Share Play feature, which is probably a lagfest, There's really nothing in the update that I need. I can do all the DLNA stuff on my XB1. Going to hook my camera up to my XB1 and watch some Summer videos of my daughter in action on my 60in HDTV. So Sony can take their time. Themes aren't a deal breaker for me.
Lol "daughter in action" sound like a porn video xd
My daughter is 4yrs old. By 'action' I mean running around playing with the dogs. Enjoy the trolling bubble.
It's going to be fun looking back at all these rants when everything we want is on the PS4 & XB1 plus more. Hopefully next time they'll get it from the get go if there is one more generation of consoles released.
They seem to be more careful with updates nowadays, so it has to be a major one if they're still trying to work it out.
Guess we have to jump to xbone seeing that Sony just keeps on ignoring features fans have been requesting the most on their blog . Getting real tired of this crap for a console that SO easy to develop for. Get your act together Sony.
Who cares about themes...:( Leaving the media features out...shows Sony doesn't listen to their consumers. And they are gonna get more flame attacks by us if they do not add the media features. Gonna have to buy an xbox one because I know at least they have media features. #facepalm4sony
Can sites stop using this Tidux idiot for infos? He is not legit. I can do the same speculation and predictions like he does. Last time he claimed that the CoD would have problems on Xbone. Which wasnt true when IGN provided plenty of XboxOne footage from that game. This guy is a douchebag and people should stop giving him attention.
