System Software version 4.72 for the PlayStation 4 has been released today.
Main features in system software update 4.72
This system software update improves system performance.
To update the System Software using your PS4 go to [Settings] > [System Software Update] and click 'Next' and then 'Update'.
If for any reason you cannot use your PS4 to download the update, it is also available to download and install using a computer and USB storage device.
*Please note it may take a short while for the page to be updated with the new version file.
You can also see tips in this thread for updating the System Software should you run into any issues.
The download page isn't updated yet, please be patient.
I just had the update notification on my PS4, it's installed, everything is good.
Was playing rocket league on my PS4 pro when the update notification popped up which then sent the screen blue and couldn't do anything. Downloaded in safe mode now all is good. Thought someone should know.
Probably because Rocket League is a mainly online based game is why the update was pushed.
I was playing Destroy All Humans I had to quit out to perform the update after reading this topic,as per usual everything as gone fine downloaded in under a 50 seconds then install time a little longer.@RODNOLOGY
Update 5.0 is creeping ever closer...
The Ticking Bomb is on the Horizon LOL
My Ps4 was in power save mode and when i tried to turn it back on it crashed. Obviously it tried to download PS4 Software and did something wrong.
It took me 4 attempts to turn it back on. On the first attempt it told me to insert a USB Stick with update 4.71 again... Second time it just shut down after loading the PS4 sign, third attempt it crashed when in Main Menue and now it run quite smooth.
I checked downloads and it told me Software download failed. Whatever. Canceld it and restarted the download, now it worked without any problems.
Maybe somebody knows where that issues came from?Known issues or bad luck only?
I have the same problem after updating the console, and i can't turn it back on even i tried how many times.....@Gizmomok
You just saved me by telling to cancel and retry thanks much.@Gizmomok
Try disconnecting internet it wprked for me
Same problem for US PSN. This solution helped. Thank you!@Gizmomok
Is it jut me that gets annoyed by the same old message "improves the quality of the system performance"??
Even if what they've done is something way beyond my understanding, I'd still like to know what they're updating. I never notice any changes with these kind of updates and at 340mb, ok, not a lot but when you consider how much of these updates there is, it all adds up.
System software update 4.72 fixes the error that occurs on Final Fantasy XIV. Details of the error can be found at:@JD-1978
Haha thanks, that makes me feel even worse tho, that I have to download a 340mb system update for a game I never, and don't intend to play 😂👍🏻@LordRoss
When I updated my system it frozen up for some odd reason do anyone know why?
Mine didnt freeze but it crashes after playing awhile. Didnt start until this update@Macross_007
Since updating this morning to the new update 4.72 The Division has been crashing multiple times and other games as well FIX this issue Sony.
During update was playing zombies in spaceland and afterwards, i'd lost all my keys and salvage and now instead of getting more, its subtracting them
