PS4 Firmware Update 5.01 1

There’s a new PlayStation 4 firmware update available now – but don’t get too excited, as it merely improves system software performance. The patch – dubbed 5.01 for those keeping count – weighs in at 374MB but appears to be optional, so you won’t necessarily need to have it installed if you want to connect to the PlayStation Network.

We assume that this is fixing some bugs that were introduced by milestone update 5.00 recently. You can read more about that through here.
