Playstation 4 Day One 1.5 Software Update Announced October 25, 2013

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

For those of you who complained that the Wii U required a pretty hefty day-one patch to be able to play Wii games, many news organizations are reporting today that Sony is going to offer a Day One Playstation 4 which will unlock most of the console’s announced features.  So before you fire up your games, make sure to fire up the PS4’s Software Update.

The 300 MB patch will be released the day of the console’s launch and can be downloaded online.  It will enable most of the PS4’s features such as remote play, gameplay spectating, facial and voice recognition, and second screen, but also adds a lot of features that the PS3 already can do out of the box.  The patch will enable the PS4’s online multiplayer capabilities, cross game voice party chat, and will also enable the PS3’s Blu-Ray and DVD playback capabilities.

You can read all the details about the system update here on Playstation Blog.

Playstation 4 is launching in North America November 15th, 2013 for a price of $399 US.
