PS4 system update 4.72 has been released and it… does exactly what these point version updates do for the PS4 (or really, any other system in general). That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it’s a stability update! Or, in Sony’s new parlance, a ‘system performance quality improvement’ update, but hey.

Given that any changes it makes are smaller, behind the scenes ones, it doesn’t weigh a whole lot- 340.6 MB total is it. It’s probably going to auto download, so go ahead and install it. The previous incremental upgrade didn’t lock system online features behind the update, so this one is unlikely to as well- but there’s no harm in updating anyway.

For now, we must wait for the next major PS4 update (presumably PS4 5.0), which will, of the last few years are any indication, be released in Fall of this year. What will it bring to the table? I just hope username changes are allowed at last…

    arent all ps4 updates about 340MB?? stability is still important for any system so to say it does nothing is complete BS. not defending sony here its just fact. if stability wasnt good why does MS update its OS with fixes, why do drivers have stability updates….

      I would say it fixes crashes,bugs with OS and other things. MyPS4 would have a Firmware crash when I was in Internet Browser and that seems fixed now as it hasn’t did it in weeks.

      With update 4.7 bricking many PS4s, it’s actually better when 4.72 does just a whole lot of nothing plus stability.


      Xbox delivers many smaller updates with new features, improvements or bug fixes. Sony delivered this big annual update (4.0) with not enough testing and spends the rest year releasing “stability” updates… but where some could also brick your console or make it really slow… therefore I’m still prefer Xbox model.

      PS: update 4.5 was a mixed bag with the new notification system.

      Meanwhile, Xbox allows people to vote and request new features, while with Sony you just have to swallow what your Japanese overlords give you. Good luck with that.

      Guess you’ve played every 360 game 100,s of times on your Xboner so you have plenty of time to do research and copy and paste.
