PlayStation 4 Firmware Thread

Let's talk about anything about video games, no matter what platform it is. What is your favorite game? Who is your favorite character? What are the recently released games? What is DLC (downloadable content)? How do I beat this boss? How do I set up my team?

External HDD Support

It’s easy to upgrade the HDD that came with your PS4, but if you’re still looking for more storage space on the console, we’ve got you covered. With this update, you have the option to store content to an external HDD. Just plug a USB 3.0 HDD into your PS4, and voilà, you now have more space on the console.

This is compatible with HDDs up to 8TB in size. You can download and install applications directly to your extra storage, and the saved contents are easily manageable through the settings menu.

Also, all the applications saved in the external HDD will appear in the Content Launcher of the Home Screen so it’s easy to keep track of what apps you launched recently.
Custom Wallpapers

This update adds the ability to set your favorite in-game screenshot as the background image for PS4’s home screen. Drop-shadows on text, and the option to dim the Function Area, will help keep the system icons and texts on the home screen clearly visible even if the background image you selected is super bright.

You can also edit screenshots using Photo Mode in Sharefactory to make your one-and-only custom wallpaper.

Looks like boost mode makes games like bloodborne, until dawn, tomb raider reboot, killzone, battlefield 4 etc run better!

Pretty nice update for pro users!

Natawa ako sa video with regard to how they were refering to vanilla PS4 as "amateur"
Di mo alam kung nang t-troll o nang e-engganyo bumili ng pro. Hahaha!

Isn't it tied to the PSN account or both? Because you need the license to run the games.

Wait. You mean you can't take your external HDD from one PS4 to another?
