PS4 1.75 update the last until 1.80

The Sony PlayStation 4 1.75 update will likely be your last until version 1.80 arrives in August, and this is due to the next major firmware expected to release around the Gamescom event date. We previously mentioned insiders had leaked this information along with details of some massive changes on the way, which are needed considering the software updates Xbox One has been getting of late.

There’s one exception to the PS4 1.75 update being the final until PS4 1.80, and this would obviously be any unforeseen bugs in the next system software upgrade expected this week. Sony officially announced the 1.75 firmware would bring 3D Blu-ray film support within a tweet, which is unusual and at the same time needed after news broke that the Xbox One will gain 3D support.

Mixed reactions to 3D support – it was clear a lot of people wanted 3D support and now Sony officially revealed it’s coming, a lot of people seem unhappy, and this has been clear on Twitter, in forums, and blog comments. The main reason for this disappointment looks to be about features that should have been there at launch, and one of these seems to be external hard drive support. One Product Reviews reader said, “I care about USB and external hard drive support, it would be great to play movies and listen to music via external drives”.

What new features would you love to see added with next months PS4 1.80 update? This is your opportunity to list the crucial features needed on the current generation of Sony console, what’s missing and should be there? Leave a comment below with innovative ideas that could keep Sony ahead and of course anything that should already be there by now.

External hard drive support then I wouldn’t need to worry about running out of memory and it would be a lot easier then having to go out and find the correct size hard drive so it will fit into the ps4 and then having to download the software so it will work in the PlayStation and reinstalling everything

I would love to be able to save music directly to the hard drive like ps3. USB supported, android phone connect and file transfer. Share factory update so it will be able to read more variety of USB drives…..thanks

External hard drive support to watch movies and music.

I am awaiting USB and external hard drive support. I think this feature has been kept back for a long time and it’s now time for it’s release. It will satisfy most PS4 owners and fans and also put PS4 ahead of Xbox One hence Xbox One is likely to have this feature at it’s release.

What about a really nice music software for the playstation 4 with a graphic equaliser and a fantastic background music affects that would be very nice. I love my music a lot

Just let me play MP4’s from my USB. Is it really that hard. Playstation is just setting the stage for people to jailbreak their system by not having the simplest of features. Also, nobody wants to or is going to pay for Movies Unlimited.

They need to let us use external hard drives, my ps4 internal is almost full, and the good games are not even out yet

Kevin

Better home screen, without it being too clogged by many games/apps where it currently takes way too long to navigate to the end of library.

Library sorting with the ability to remove demos as well as viewing smaller icons so we can view more games in the library at once and a way to sort by name/file/date.

External harddive support to play music and movies.

MP3 support for music files. The PS3 had music services and if people wanted it they subscribed, having the ability to throw in your own CD in the PS4 wouldnt hurt all that

Fletcher

I hate how games are sorted all over the place. Makes it confusing to find anything.
The PS3 UI is miles ahead of this one. Please change this as well as external HDD support.

ozone

Controller battery indicator next to clock, friends online/offline notifications, ability to delete multiple notifications/messages at once, and some kind of folder sort system for the main ui as it gets cluttered quickly like the ability to drop down like the what’s new app. Would allow games to be sorted in one area instead of all over the place. I can think of more features but I believe these to be a core part of the next update.

Lol people are dumb. Cant expect sony to roll out that many fetures at once and app. They got to be code writen ,tested retested with current fw. Then approve. If u try releasing that mamy they would conflict with each other and someone has work out what peace of coding is conflicting with what other app. who cares about music and video? 99% of it not legal . And you cant listen to music and do cut screan at same time . I have 5 devices I can plug in to my tv to watch .mp4 and other videos… Read more »
