US PS4 firmware update 1.50 available now

The PlayStation 4’s first firmware update, version 1.50, is available to download now for soon-to-be US PS4 owners.

The day one update weighs in at around 322mb, and enables a long list of critical system features including online multiplayer, Remote Play, gameplay sharing, ‘play as you download’, party chat, Blu-ray and DVD playback, second screen capabilities and more.

The file is available for download now via the official US PlayStation website (PS4 support is yet to go live on the EU site). Since it’s not unlikely that Sony’s servers may struggle with the demand of a million updating PS4s on launch day this Friday, we advise you download the update now and install it to PS4 via USB memory stick.

To commence an install via USB, create a folder on the stick named ‘PS4’, and within that create another folder called ‘UPDATE’ (all uppercase). Put the ‘PS4UPDATE.pup’ file into the ‘UPDATE’ folder.

You should have a folder structure of: PS4 > UPDATE > PS4UPDATE.pup.

Turn off the PS4 completely and insert the USB stick into a front USB slot. Turn on the PS4 in ‘Safe Mode’ by holding the power button down “for at least 7 seconds”.

Go to [Update System Software] and initiate an update via USB and let the console do the rest.

Head through here for a full list of all the major features update 1.50 enables.
