PS4 PlayStation 4 Firmware Update 4.01

Sony's dropped a new PlayStation 4 firmware update this morning, which will bring added stability to your system. Our understanding is that this update – dubbed v4.01 and weighing in at 312.1MB – has been rolled out with PlayStation VR in mind, though there's nothing in the patch notes to back that up. Probably bug fixes and the usual tweaks, then.

The update appears to be optional as we can still connect to the PlayStation Network without it installed, but you'll probably want to grab it regardless – who doesn't want the most stable system around, after all? We'll update if we learn anything new about this firmware update, but in the meantime, enjoy your new-found stability.
