A few weeks after releasing version 4.71, Sony has now released software update 4.72 for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. Maximum stability is obviously imminent as the below patch notes don’t give a whole lot away.


Main features in version 4.72 update

  • This system software update improves the quality of the system performance.

It can’t be long before we get another update that actually brings us something useful. Before you mention it, yes we’re waiting for the ability to change your PSN name too.

  • How long have we waited for the ability to change PSN user names?

  • QT

    They are being really cheeky about their updates. This update fixes problems with MMOs having to be re downloaded if an improper shutdown has occurred (like a power outage.) It happened with Desinty, and Final Fantasy XIV

    The fact that they aren’t even acknowledging that’s what it’s for but is a mandatory update makes you wonder about past FW releases that they give minimal input. Basically Sony breaking their Game Devs games. Maybe people should tell Sony they need to be more open about their updates. You’d think they’d learn after the hack that their customers would appreciate more honesty.
