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”.
