Well, this wasn’t the kind of firmware update that we had in mind yesterday when Sony teased that some brand new system software was right around the corner. As of this morning, the platform holder has launched a new patch numbered v1.74, which – perhaps a little embarrassingly – improves nothing other than system software stability.

To be fair, it’s only a 194MB file which takes a few minutes to download and install in standby mode, but with early adopters eager for something a little meatier to sink their teeth into, the firm probably picked the wrong time to deploy this incremental upgrade. Oh well, the wait for something more substantial goes on, we suppose.
