A new PS4 firmware update has seemingly fixed a big problem with the PS4. Earlier, if a PS4’s CMOS battery died once support for the console phased out, it would render the console pretty much useless. The latest firmware update has fixed this issue, as reported by Modern Vintage Gamer.

MVG has posted a new YouTube video, which you can check out below, wherein he conducted a number of tests with the latest firmware. In the video, he confirms that the issue has now been fixed and as a result, fans can play their digital and physical games even after PSN support drops for the console – but that requires installing this firmware update, of course.

This particular finding came at a time when Sony decided to shut down the PS3, PSP and PS Vita digital storefront – though of course, they did eventually walk back on that decision. With that and this firmware update, the narrative has changed for the better – which is certainly appreciable from a consumer’s standpoint.
