PS4 System Software Update 1.51 Out Now

November 20, 2013Written by Jason Dunning


Just a few days after system software update 1.50 came out for the PS4, Sony has released 1.51, which is billed as a “minor required update.”

There’s only a couple of update notes associated with 1.51, which you can read about below:

  • Stability of system software has been improved.
  • Minor refinements to elements of the system UI (such as clearly indicating when a user downloads a game and a game patch at the same time) have been introduced.

If your PS4 is in stand-by mode, 1.51 should have been automatically downloaded by now (auto downloads are enabled by default in stand-by), otherwise you can download it yourself the next time you turn on your PS4. Those of you who need to download 1.51 to a USB stick can head over here for more information.
