Sony has been very silent about the actual release date of the 1.7 PS4 firmware update, that will bring forth the ability to save our screenshots and videos on USB media, the video editing software SHAREFactory, the ability to disable HDCP and much more.
We’re now a week from the end of the month and many have been wondering if the update will still make it by then. According to industry insider Tidux it should.
The internal target to release the FW 1.7 in April still applies.
It’s 30 days in April.
This seems to match well with the date outed and then stealthily removed by Sony Japan, and the part about there being thirty days in April could definitely mean that the internal target is indeed April 30th.
Tidux has demonstrated multiple times to be privy to what happens at Sony, for instance by leaking specific details of the UI and Operating System of the PS4 before they were disclosed, but of course we should take what he says as a rumor until we receive an official confirmation from Sony.
