Next PS4 update release looming

It’s been almost a month since the current generation console got new firmware and this points to the PS4 1.73 update release date being a matter of days away. In a quick recap, you might remember seeing the 1.71 firmware up for download on June 3, and then 21 days later we saw 1.72 go live.

Considering the long gap since the last firmware, it’s our prediction to see Sony release the PS4 1.73 update by the end of July. While this is still speculation, following previous download patterns it’s almost certain to see the next firmware within a matter of days.

Features the PlayStation 4 needs to be a better console – we love what Sony produced with the new console, although there’s still a lot of features missing and some should have been there from launch. Those that come to mind right away include 3D support for blu-ray movies and games, instant suspend and resume, DLNA streaming, CD and file playback, and for some people even better Bluetooth support for things like gaming chairs.

Personally, we’re patient and know most of these features will come with a firmware update at some point. This possibility hasn’t stopped some people getting angry and a few turn to Twitter to explain what they want.

With the next PS4 update about to release, how can you be satisfied with the new features and do you think Sony might be saving the best changes for a full 1.80 update?

I really hope they fix the recording bug. Ever since the last update my ps4 has not been constantly recording anymore. I looked into it and found many others with the same problem. There are fixes, but they are only temporary. The weird part is, it works every time logged into my friends profile on my ps4.
