There’s a new PlayStation 4 update (to fix the last one)

HOORAY

The PlayStation 4’s 2.0 update wasn’t quite the revelation Sony had hoped. Instead of creating joy, it caused issues for a number of gamers, specifically with its Rest Mode, which ended up making a number of systems inoperable. Sure there were fixes, and users could easily have skipped using rest mode, but that’s beside the point. Thankfully, there’s a new update out now that’s rolling out to fix the problems the last one created.

There’s not much to say about the update, whose patch notes simply list “Stability improvements,” but Sony’s confirmed it’ll fix the Rest Mode woes that have plagued many since the 2.0 update rolled out last month.

The download isn’t huge, coming in at just 217.2 megabytes. It’ll start automatically if you’ve foolishly and recklessly been using Rest Mode, or can be activated through Settings>System Software Update. While the 2.0 patch initially gave me no issues, Rest Mode stopped working, and I had to reinitialise my system. I use Standby to charge my controllers and make sure my games are all up to date, so I’m rather happy this patch has come sooner rather than later.

Stuck at work, want to update as soon as you’re home? Download the update using your work’s internet, and update via USB!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
