PS4 1.76 update is trivial

By Daniel Chubb - Sep 2, 2014

The PlayStation 4 1.76 firmware update is live and it looks like you won’t be getting any new features until the next major 2.0 version. This is thanks to the PS4 1.76 update that went live today only including stability improvements, once again like many of the previous release notes reveal.

Sony has a massive load of features planned for the 2.0 firmware, so we have a lot to look forward to. In fact, we mentioned recently that we didn’t expect any new system software until version 2.0, so it doesn’t surprise us that this firmware is only for performance improvements.


We are still yet to see the official Sony firmware page for PS4 receive 1.76 update notes, although they should release at some point today. For now, you can see a screenshot below this article with exactly what is included.

Are you bothered if this update doesn’t do much other than improve system stability? If you notice any hidden features, then leave a comment below.

    I agree with those here in the comments. Any update that fixes or introduces new features is welcome in my book. I’m happy every time I see a new one needs to be downloaded, be it for a game or for the system itself. It means they are fixing something that needs to be fixed.

    It is great seeing the improvements to the system’s core, but whatever everyone says, we needed more features added throughout 2014 to the PS4. This didn’t happen fast enough, and while 2.0 will do much more, Sony has been a let down with adding needed features to PS4 throughout the year.

    Update is Trivial?

    How is a free update that fixes bugs and improves a product you own trivial?

      Because it doesn’t bring features or anything noteworthy. PS is known for it’s useless, featureless updates. and sub par network.

    People say these stability improvements are pointless. I have actually noticed games and the system load faster and perform better with each update. That is more then pointless morons.
