ps4-hrdware-large19If last week’s 1.74 update for the PS4 and its ‘stability fixes’ wasn’t enough then rejoice as system software 1.75 is live and brining a few more features. So what do we get?

  • Ability to play 3D Blu-ray disk – You know for all those 3D movies you have for your 3D tv.
  • Automatically download featured content – It is not quite clear what exactly will be downloaded but this is most likely the feature Sony touted at the PS4 announcement that will preload content based on your purchase and play history.
  • New location for your notifications – Did you hate your notifications being on the upper-right of the screen? Well, now they are on the upper-left. You’re welcome.
  • Better audio when playing disc based movies at 1.5x speed – Really? Who does this? Take the proper time to enjoy the movie.

These are minor features and more are yet to come. SHAREfactory will be getting an update tomorrow to add features but the system features some are waiting for are still not available. Look for updates on the PS4 and Xbox One to become more frequent as the competition heats up between the two platforms.

Still can’t play an mp3. Still can’t play media from USB storage. Still can’t use USB storage as extra memory. Still no DLNA support. Still not sharing your screen or game directly with a friend. Oh Sony, I fear you are slipping into that complacency that hurt the PS3 for years.
