PlayStation 4 owners kicked up their consoles today, just to discover a surprise update for version 6.0. Such a nice round number will usually come with a nice big update, a package at least one big feature and more than a couple of decent tweaks. This was not the case, although the update did not contain any new features and instead offered a changelog with a single sentence.
Although Sony has given PS4 owners certain features they've requested, such as folders to better organize their games, others are still missing – including the ability to change your PSN name, update it from what embarrassing moniker that became chosen in middle school.
This feature did not update v6.0 … no features appeared, at least not that Sony has revealed. Instead, console owners opened the software update changelog only to discover this simple phrase: "This system software update improves system performance." Nothing else.
This was an annoying but not very surprising update; Sony has done similar in the past. Compared with updating v5.0, which caused some major changes, the update was a disappointment to console owners who shortly hoped for something great. If you have a PS4, you will be prompted to update if it was not installed automatically.
