Sony’s software engineers just can’t seem to get things right at the moment. Since the introduction of the PlayStation 4 2.0 update, Sony’s angular black box has been about as stable as our own Darryn after a single alcoholic beverage. That is to say, not at all. Many users have been complaining of issues since the last firmware, 2.01, came along to fix that annoying Rest Mode issue. There’s a new one on the way, to fix the issues that fix itself introduced.
PS4 system software update v2.02 is coming soon, and will improve system software stability during use of some features, games, and apps

Sony revealed the impending patch on Twitter in the wee hours of this morning….and maybe this time, they’ll get it right. I’ve personally had no issue with the PS4 since the 20.1 update came along to fix my rest mode woes. I do have to commend Sony though, on fixing these issues quickly – even if they shouldn’t have been there in the first place. As with the last one, this update will very likely weigh in at around 200Mb and should start rolling out right about now.
Aside from the oft-requested DLNA and media player functionality, what new rudimentary featured would you like to see added to the PS4? I’d love for the ability to have notifications if friends are playing the same game, much like the Xbox has had for what seems an eternity.
