PS4 System Update 1.72 Out Now, Another Disappointing Update

by Dean James


While Microsoft tends to focus on putting out monthly updates with a little more substance, Sony seems to put out major updates further apart, but have a ton of small ones in-between. That is certainly the case with these latest two updates for both of Sony’s consoles, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

The latest update for PlayStation 4, known as system update 1.72, went live in Europe last night and is now available for download in the US as well.

According to the official PlayStation EU Twitter account, the PlayStation 4 update “improves system software stability and incorporates minor bug fixes.” This tends to be a pretty common PlayStation update type, so hopefully there is something a little extra in there not revealed yet.

While the PlayStation 4 update is out in the US, we have to wait a little longer on the latest for PlayStation 3, known as system update 4.60. This one does about the same, with more software stability “during use of some features.”

The big question is when will Sony put out a PlayStation 4 update that adds some juicy new features we have been waiting on, such as external HDD support. The system was lacking a lot of features the PlayStation 3 has had for years and even as a huge Sony fan that just recently got a PlayStation 4 myself, its pretty inexcusable that we still do not have them by now.

Update: PlayStation 3 update 4.60 is now available to download as well. The only listed details of the update involve closed captioning, but Sony should put out a full rundown at some point.
