Sony has released an update for the PS4 and it’s nothing to get too excited over. Over the past few updates that the PS4 has seen, we got plenty of stability and sometimes saw new features (like folders). Today brings a new era, Sony is done with stability and has moved on to ‘system performance.’

Be careful when using an update file for reinstallation. All users and all data will be deleted. On the USB storage device, create folders for saving the update file. Using a computer, create a folder named “PS4”. Inside that folder, create another folder named “UPDATE”. Download the update file, and save it in the “UPDATE” folder you created. Save the file with the file name “PS4UPDATE.PUP”.
