PS4 System Update 4.00 Available Tomorrow, Patch Notes Include HDR Support and More News PlayStation  PS4

Get ready for the next big update to hit your PS4 with Sony announcing that PS4 System Update 4.00 will arrive tomorrow for all users. This patch has been detailed a little bit before, promising a new Quick Menu and a UI overhaul. Now we have the official PS4 System Update 4.00 patch notes to go over ahead of the September 13th release date.

The Quick Menu and UI refresh have made it into this final version of the update. There have even been some changes from the way the feature worked in the PS4 4.00 beta. “One new addition to the Quick Menu that wasn’t featured in the beta program is an enhanced Music section to allow you to discover, play, and control Spotify without needing to open the app.”

PS4 System Update 4.00 also brings the much talked about HDR support that was announced alongside the PS4 Pro. While the newer console will support 4K resolutions for streaming and some games, HDR is arriving for all PS4 systems with this update. “After updating your system to version 4.00, you’ll see HDR settings in the Video Output Settings and be ready to enjoy HDR gaming and entertainment content once it’s available on any PS4 system you own. Of course, you’ll need an HDR compatible display as well.”

One piece of the update that wasn’t detailed before is the new feature that will allow players to transfer their system over to the PS4 Pro. “In order to make it easier to get all of your data from one PS4 to another, especially if you upgrade to PS4 Pro, we’ve added the ability to transfer data over a wired LAN connection. You can transfer games, user info, and saved data. Of course, you can re-download content and transfer saves through the cloud, but the LAN transfer should be much faster and easier.”

    I remember HDR in oblivion, back on 06. Consoles only have it NOW??!!

  • efnet

    I will definitely be paying very close attention to this HDR feature.

  • Sexy Mcgee

    I hope HDR doesn’t work anything like DCR which adds a ton of input lag. Also, can you just stick your PS4 storage device into the PS4 Pro?

    • efnet

      Just asking but do you even have an hdr capable tv?

      • Sexy Mcgee

        No, but I would hate to get one due to all the hype and find out that HDR works like DCR which detects the darks and brights, adjusting them. A process that adds to input lag.

        • efnet

          Huh? Isn’t DCR (digital cable ready)?

    HDR – so many ‘guffawed’ at it when XB1 S stated the capability.

    Why not now? I am for it, regardless of platform…but I’ve this one MAJOR issue…I don’t have a 4k TV yet…lol. So even though the system has it, I won’t be able to see it until then.

    I know true 4k gaming is off a good bit of time, but when the time comes it’ll be sweet.

    • efnet

      Yea that is rather funny right lol
      Xbox does it and it’s barley mentioned , Sony does it and it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread….
