If you were hoping that the days of frequent and annoyingly vague firmware updates would be a thing of the past now that we've entered the next generation, you'd unfortunately be wrong, as Sony has just announced the release of PlayStation 4 firmware update v1.62. The platform holder describes the benefits of the patch as follows: "Operation quality during use of some PS4 software has been improved."

We haven't the first idea what that might mean in the grand scheme of things, but we're always glad to hear that things are improving. Thankfully, waiting for the tweaks to download is a thing of the past, with the PS4 allowing you to download those pesky patches while the system sits idly in standby mode. You can learn how to exploit that nifty trick through here. Are you a fan of the Japanese giant's strict firmware regiment? Give us an update in the comments section below.
