PS4 2.0 update date close, 1.76 release crushed

- Aug 30, 2014

Following the PS3 4.65 firmware releasing and the PS4 2.0 update release date closing in thanks to a fall window, it now seems highly unlikely to see any other firmware updates for PlayStation 4 and this means no 1.76 update like some people wanted.

There were hopes by a few that 1.76 would bring bug fixes and slight improvements before the PS4 2.0 update, especially considering it has been a month since the last firmware notes landed.

This is what one Product Reviews reader said, “Fall ends in the second half of December, I really hope we see the PS4 1.76 firmware update within the next month, as I really don’t want to wait up to 3.5 months”. Another added, “I can’t be bothered with minor patches, please Sony bring the PS4 2.0 update right at the start of fall next month”.


PS4 2.0 update date close – with fall starting towards the end of September, this is just over 3 weeks away and we have every reason to believe Sony’s aiming for the start of fall. If our sources are correct about the PS4 2.0 firmware update releasing at the start of fall, then it leaves little time for another software update and this is highly unlikely to happen.

We also noticed a tweet from PlayStation that stated, “Fall is not long away”. This was a response to a gamer asking when the PS4 2.0 update would release? Again, this hints towards a sooner rather than later download.

Are you happy to wait until PS4 update 2.0 without the need for another firmware before then? Share Play in our opinion is a gamer changer for the next major system update, although we’d love to know what features you’re looking forward to from 2.0?
