PS4 1.7 Firmware Update the “Biggest That Sony Has Ever Made” for Features and Size – Insider

on April 27, 2014 4:08 AM

Sony Computer Entertainment has teased that there are more yet unannounced features in firmware update 1.7 scheduled for release on April 30th, which means that the update is definitely pretty big, but according to industry insider Tidux it isn’t just big, it’s the biggest Sony has ever made.

1.7 is a major update, it’s the biggest that Sony has ever made. Features and size wise. #PS4 #Sony #GreatnessAwaits

I went ahead and asked Tidux whether that comparison includes the very sizable day one 1.5 patch (that weighed aa rather hefty 308 Mb) and enabled critical features like remote play, sharing and the ability to play games while downloading, and he replied “for sure.”

That’s definitely a big legacy to live up to for the new patch, but even if we should definitely consider this an unconfirmed rumor, Tidux proved his reliability before by leaking several features of the PS4’s operating system before they were disclosed, and lately he nailed both the release date of patch 1.7 and the inclusion of the DualShock 4 dimming feature.

We’re only three days off, and we’re probably going to hear more from Sony itself soon. My forecast is that we can expect a PlayStation blog post tomorrow, but that’s just an nearly surefire personal prediction. I’m no insider.
