PS4 Firmware Update 5.03 PlayStation 4 1

‘Tis the season of cheer, and what better bringer of joy than a PlayStation 4 firmware update? Sony’s unleashed the optional PS4 firmware update 5.03 today, and as you’d expect, it does naff all. As is often the case, the platform holder’s patch notes explain that the patch will “improve system performance”. You probably won’t notice any changes.

At just 374.7MB, it’s a tiddler, and it doesn’t need to be installed for you to connect to the PlayStation Network. Probably best to just get it over with by slamming your system in Rest Mode, though – that way at least you know your console’s bang up to date, and you can get on with gaming over the Christmas period until your retinas burst.
