Possible features list is misleading, from source

 

There are no other details as to what else the 1.6 update could bring, but we expect it will mostly be bugs fixes and internal software tweaks to keep the PS4 problem free. 

 

 

All I want for now is Pulse Headset support and for audio to be fixed, whether it's Sony's or Netflix's doing, I have no 5.1 audio (no center channel) in Netflix. Sony do need to bring back the PS3 like audio options for the PS4 regardless.

Going by the big jump in version number, it would have to include more than just support for a headset.

Looked it up seems to be a PS4 issue with all/most video streaming apps, I've only used music apps and watched blu-ray movies so haven't experienced it. But hopefully that's one of the fixes in the new firmware update.

 

Possible features is just a list from multiple sites which are the most requested and most talked about.

I think it's to do with the stupid "preferred audio output" setting. You can actually change that to optical and it still works over HDMI :/ They need to bring back the PS3 option of allowing you to select various outputs and deselect others rather than trying to manage it all automatically. The PS3 did have an automatic option, but giving manual options is completely necessary for wide spread audio system compatibility.

If that possible feature list is even half fulfilled, that will be a lot of stuff that I would be happy with.  Hopefully the headset support is handled first though since they did make a point to say that would be coming soon.  I'm not using a pulse headset, but apparently there are many that do.

 

I have also run into the app surround sound issue, so it would be great to see that fixed, not to mention improving the stability of apps in general since I still get crashes to the dashboard every so often.

 

Out of that list, the one that sticks out to me is the external drive support.  Are there strong rumors to suggest that Sony is going to add that?  I hadn't seen anything regarding that.  That would be cool. Also, I had no idea you couldn't play 3D Blurays yet, I thought there was discussion about that and Sony had said it did at launch.  Doesn't bother me though, I don't have any to play.

 

Well considering its going to be late February and the version number is jumping like it is, they must be trying to pack a lot in. Looking forward to it.

Since when has a minor point increment (0.08 in this case) been considered a "big jump"?

 

Big/Major increments are generally made by incrementing the digit(s) before the dot/period. the digits after the dot are considered a minor update.

Wait, what? My PS4 can't play 3D films? I took that for granted, upgrading from the PS3 ...

Tonight, system update 1.60 will be hitting the PS4, bringing with it support for several wireless headsets, including the PULSE, the PULSE Elite, and Sony's newly announced Gold Wireless Headset, which you can check out via the above trailer.

Don't use a headset nor voice commands, though in playing Tomb Raider they seem to really be pushing for it.   It's kind of nice actually with the lack of support for most headsets, I can play BF4 and such without a bunch of people yelling over mic as they don't want to use the Sony provided ones. 

However, if the other features in the list (primarily external HDD Support) got added.. that would be fricken awesome.

I don't think we'll see DLNA until at least the summer, these things need a lot of testing and implementing...

I was hoping it would show up on their site for download before I went to bed, but its not, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow night to get it loaded and try things out.  Hope to hear some detailed reports from you guys before then :laugh:

I think it will just be the pulse update, I don't think Sony would add anything more apart from the usual 'system stability'.

So when is HDCP getting removed? No idea why Sony launched with it if they were just going to remove it a few months afterwards.

Yep.. two features I don't use.  Don't own a headset.. and after checking the retail on them.. won't own.  Also don't watch DVD's anymore.. all digital.

I know there's a rumour that the rest of the features are coming in an update on the 22nd but it seems crazy that they would release what i assume would be a fairly large firmware update on the day that the PS4 is released in Japan.

The update for the 22nd was released about 2 hours ago. (1.6)
There is no big features included, and I can't see there being another 'big' update this month. 
All in all - a pretty useless Firmware update really.

Man, that is disappointing.  GotBored had me excited at the possibilities, but this is very anticlimactic.

 

Well at least it adds the headset support that some here were waiting for, so that's good.

 

Now to wait for the next update.
