PS4 System Software Update 10.01 Is Out Today

Sony has released a new PS4 firmware update today that patches the system software to 10.01. This doesn’t appear to be a mandatory update.

In the case of a mandatory update, you will need to download the firmware since it will be required in order to play online. Since this is not one of these updates, there is no need to update at the moment unless you just want to do it.

As for the changelog of this firmware update, it is a minor increment from 10.0 to 10.01, which basically means that this is an update to improve the system performance.

Just recently, Sony released a major update for the PS4 software. It was patched to version 10.0 and the following features were added to it.

Version 10.0

  • While using the Internet Browser, you can now select between two types of zoom functions.
    “Zoom” lets you increase the size of the elements on the page while adjusting their layout so everything fits without having to scroll left and right.
    “Magnify” increases the size of everything on the page without layout adjustments.
    The maximum zoom/magnification rate is now 500%.
  •  We’ve updated the following for Remote Play.
    It’s now easier to use the keyboard on your PC or Mac when using PS Remote Play.
    We’ve removed the text entry box so you can use your keyboard to type directly onto your PS5 console or PS4 console.
    In addition to typing, you can also now use the keyboard to control games that support it.
