PS4 update 2.55 brings no new features

By Alan Ng - Jul 2, 2015

For those that have just booted up their PS4 several hours ago, we can tell you that there has been a stealthy new PS4 software update 2.55 by Sony – now available for everyone to install.

Unfortunately though, the reason Sony didn’t say anything about it prior to going live is due to the fact that it basically doesn’t offer anything new compared to the last version.

The PS4 2.55 update notes state that “System software stability during some use of features has been improved” – that’s it, nothing more nothing less.


We know that some of you are still waiting for missing PS4 features such as online and offline PS4 friends notifications, as well as PS4 folder support, but they’re not included in this update.

Hopefully these are being saved for PS4 update 3.00 which we’re sure Sony is working on right now behind the scenes. Let us know if you have just updated your console with the PS4 system software update 2.55 and if you can’t help but feel a little disappointed over seeing another of these stability updates.

    This update put the nail in the coffin of my system. I believe it was targeted towards people with HDD’s larger than 2TB like those who just got their Nyko Data Bank. Now the system will not play any disc based games and they will not work properly if put into rest mode. This was a mandatory update which makes little sense if it was just minor stability issues. Plus if you updated after switching hard drives then they made the data on the original hard drive useless. The system updates internally to check for a certain version of the system software. This requires you to download a newer version of their USB initialization software making you format the original drive. Hopefully to uploaded all your saved data and backed up other files or they may be lost forever.
