Sony has deployed its latest PlayStation firmware update, which you can download right now. You can update your PS4 console to system version 6.72 by going to the settings menu, weighing in at 463.9MB.
However, within all those megabytes, don’t expect to find any new features to play around with. Here’s the official description of update 6.72 does according to Sony:
“Main features in version 6.72 update: this system software update improves system performance.”
Great stuff, a really descriptive breakdown there as always, Sony.
It shouldn’t come as no surprise though – as a rule of thumb, any 0.0X update is generally tied to system performance and software stability. The regular kind of behind the curtain fixes that very few will notice at all.
Big system features – such as revisions to the party system, and the long-awaited PSN name changes, are usually held for the X.X5 or X.X0 updates.
For example, the next time Sony wants to rolls out a new feature will likely be when update 6.75 lands or 6.80.
Usually, before these features land, Sony sends out invites to select PSN users allowing them to join in beta tests before these are eventually rolled out to the public.
If you want to be part of this program and get your hands on the latest updates before the rest of the PSN punters, here’s a link to the trial sign-up page.
The last big new feature Sony rolled out was 16-player parties. We’ve yet to hear what Sony has planned in the future, but you won’t find it in 6.72, sadly.
