    My PS4 Pro cannot play FFXV any patches version. I can only play 1.00 only.

    Hope 4.5 will fix this issue.

  • Jose Espinoza

    All i want from sony is besides the updates is for mlb the show 17 be in true 4k quality and to ad face scan feature like nba 2k does every year

  • Lee

    Three words – playstation one emulation

  • NgTurbo

    3 stability updates in a row, surely something new has to come to keep everyone happy after this?

  • Gary Murden

    Patch 4.07 does do one thing.

    It stops the HDCP 2.2 work around on LG TV’s from working.

    This means you have to have the HDCP disabled to play on the PS4 pro.

    Since LG haven’t done a patch in the UK for their LGUH610v TVs at this time (10.40 am 08.12.06) I guess Sony’s firmware writers have shot themselves in the foot with this and hopefully a new patch is immediate.

    Utter farce.

    • Liam Brady

      Right, that is why it has stopped working… Figured. Just came to google it to find out. That is incredibly annoying.

      • Gary Murden

        According someone on Reddit, Sony will be doing a new patch in a week.

        I wish they had a firmware roll back option.

        • Liam Brady

          Yup. Oh well, I didn’t want to use my new TV and new PS4 pro anyway.

    • NgTurbo

      Let’s hope that comes with the 4.08 update then Gary.

      • Gary Murden

        LG has updated the firmware for their TV’s.

        You have to download them onto a USB device and then their TV’s work fine.

        Strange that LG didn’t allow the update though the firmware check on the actual tv.

        If you have an LG tv, please check their website as you could be missing out.

        Hopefully the next PS update will have name changes for those who want it, external hard drive support (v. Unlikely) or a simple update to the media player to offer better sorting/playlist options.

        Thanks to any one that replied, sometimes businesses forget that those numbers are people and we like to be kept in the loop.

    4.07 is now live and it’s another stability update. How stable do Sony want to get before giving us actual features?

  • Titmister

    Since 4.01 update the whats new screen stopped working dont get any updates its stuck even when i bought the pro its still the same basically sony know and they are not bothered its a server and account issue what hit random people plus theres privacy issues that your msgs never get deleted all you do is leave group but when you msg that person again your old msgs are there still i bet that doesn’t help there servers

  • NgTurbo

    Yes, as Matty33 has said update is live. Bit disappointing to have two stability updates back to back. Perhaps the next one with actual features will be 4.10.. what do you want to see guys?

  • matty33

    4.06 is live. Nothing to get excited about it’s just another “stability and performance improvements” update no new features. It must have only been a small patch as it only took seconds to install. It’s probably just fixing the problems that some people had after installing 4.05.

  • just_me

    I don’t need any changing, “stability and performance improvements” it’s perfect for me. The last major update has add so many new things, has done the PS4 more perfect that I was hoping for.

  • NgTurbo

    4.05 is now out! Downloading as we speak. No big changes though, pretty disappointing. Lots of gamers thinking that it is just adding extra support for PS VR.

  • NgTurbo

    PS4 4.0 is live guys, downloading now in the UK. HDR is available as an added option in settings.. anyone got a capable 4K TV to test it out?

  • Taurus_310

    Sony should just let us download free games from time to time or movies. All this money they received from us, n as gamers/product buyers we should at least in return get something or make it freeonline as the previous system (ps3)

  • NgTurbo

    Guys, not long to go until PS4 4.0 is out with HDR! Expecting the confirmation from Sony any minute.. start refreshing those consoles!

  • P.Z.R.

    The feature I’m hoping for is a TV DVR function & the software of a Ota TV tuner under the Video menu.

    They would go right after the Xbox who killed their TV DVR function. I’d easily dump my xbox one now that I can’t DVR my Ota signals for Fox, NBC, ABC, PBS, & Cbs

    I want an all encompassing Game & video Entertainment console.

    LIVE TV, apps, games & video streaming apps

    Guess I’ll be stuck leaning towards a Gaming PC w/tuner & etc

    • Admir Karalic

      You and my parents, are probably the only individuals still watching conventional TV programs.

  • Dave

    yes Sony more silent overclocks, the GPU is already artifact bad after the last 2 updates, no I’m not sending it back I’m just going to play it till it melts and trow it out !

  • NgTurbo

    PS4 4.0 – folders, check. new UI, check. What else are Sony missing with 4.0 that you guys wanna see??

  • Brandon Ellis

    We need folders 4 games apps and other things we need a option to delete notifications and Library
