PS4 System Software Update 9.60 Patch Notes Today (May 12)

The PS5 also received a new firmware update today!

May 12, 2022

Not only did the PS5 receive a brand new firmware update earlier today (May 12), PS4 users also have a brand new patch to download before they can continue using the console online.

It’s been a busy week for PlayStation users, as the PS3 and PS Vita also received new system updates just a few days ago. Unfortunately, the updates didn’t go down well with fans. Ever since the PS3 was brought to version 4.89, players are now required to set up any new accounts via a mobile or computer device, instead of doing it on the console directly. The same also goes for PS Vita users.

There’s also not that much to get excited about with the latest PS4 system update either, as it appears to simply improve system performance.

What’s New In Today’s PlayStation 4 Update?

As mentioned previously, there are no new features included in today’s update. Players will be prompted to download the latest update the next time they turn their console on and will be unable to use network features until they do so.

The update comes in at the usual size of around 900MB, and merely improves system performance. But for further details, check out the official console patch notes further down this article.
