PlayStation 4 system software update 1.71 is coming “soon,” Sony announced.

It is a minor system update that will “improve software stability of some features.”

    Why is ‘PlayStation 4’ tagged twice? @w@

    • Zackasaur

      It’s just that important.

    • AdamBoy64

      I think it’s something like – one marking is for the category, and the other is a tag.

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Ah, you’re right! I see the ‘c’ and the ‘tag’ in the links, haha. I actually remember Sal pointing this out to me before at some point.

        My memory isn’t what it used to be ;w;

  • bloodiOS

    The PS4 must be stable as fuck by now…

    • Spectacularity

      Is it really? I want to buy one but I don’t want it to be as annoyingly fragile as my fat ps3 was a couple of years ago. -_-

      • bloodiOS

        I was just being sarcastic there given how many stability updates it had. Anyway, I wouldn’t know, really, seeing that I don’t have one yet.

        • Spectacularity

          Oh, damn I suck at reading sarcasm on the internet.

      • Zackasaur

        Yes, it is incredibly stable. c:

        Both in terms of hardware and software. :P

    • MrFinalgamer

      Lol, this is just the beginning! We still need to pass the 3.0 threshold to finally be “stable enough”.

    • LordKaiser

      Meanwhile I’m still here with my PS3, PC and 3DS and I have no rush to get a new console yet. Unless Wild Arms 6 or something gets announced for PS4.

      • Tetsu

        Yes please!
        I jumped on the PS4 bandwagon at launch, however…

        – Grandia 4
        – Lunar 3
        – Wild Arms 6
        – Suikoden 6
        – Valkyrie Profile 3
        – Star Ocean 5

    Hope this fixes some of the issues I’ve been having. Mainly the Live with PlayStation app not working after I do one search. Or the PS Store not opening up for some reason. Only happens sometimes, I usually just go into standby, then start it up and go into the store. But if I go to a Store link via a game, then I have to close the game if the store doesn’t load. Frustrating.

    I want a customizable UI, damit

  • Theotanasia

    So… How many stable updates has this had now? I don’t own a PS4 so I really wouldn’t know.. An estimated number would be nice.

  • Bob Obb

    This is probably to fix the exploit that was found and announced prematurely by a certain idiotic group

      I removed them all to prevent further replies. Sorry.

        Moderator – I’m really sorry you feel that way. The best advice I can give is to ignore comments that piss you off, or flag them. Don’t let it get to you too much.

      Moderator – Edited.

        This is why i left this community, it was awesome in the beginning, the because of people and the die hard anime/ps3 fanboys.

        I love Anime and PS3 don’t get me wrong but i don’t like bias.
        And this is coming from someone who has been here almost when the site opened and went through 3-4? Name changes.
