Sony seems to be updating PS4 as often as PS5 these days, keeping both consoles looking healthy. Earlier today, the company pushed a firmware update to its current console, and now it's PS4's turn. System software version 9.60 is available to download and install now.
Weighing in at 492MB, you can probably guess what the single patch note is. You may have even read it on this very website recently:
"This system software update improves system performance."
The PS5's system performance is getting better, but nothing can match PS4. This thing is sturdy as a rock.
When we logged into our PS4, it asked us to update the firmware immediately, so it seems to be a mandatory update. Fortunately it's not a big one, so get it downloaded and you can keep on playing as normal. What a day for firmware patches!
