This is just a quick note to let you know that your PS4 is going to run an update. Firmware 1.61 is out now, it’s mandatory so there’s no way to avoid it if you want to take your console online.
Hopefully, if you leave your PS4 in standby mode, it will have already downloaded next time you switch on. If that’s the case, you’ll get a notification telling you it’s ready and from there you’ll just need to let it install.
Ostensibly, this is a minor firmware update that provides system stability enhancements but we often used to find some additional very minor changes in similar updates to the PlayStation 3 so let us know in the comments below if you spot anything new.
