The PlayStation has received a new update, while Sony has released a new system software version for the PlayStation 4 at nearly the same time. The console's firmware has been updated to version 9.60.

The PS4's latest update will surprise anyone expecting a detailed list of fixes and improvements. "This system software update enhances system performance," states the only entry in the patch notes. That's not a lot of information, but it's all Sony has to say about the May 12th PS4 firmware update. At the very least, the PS4 patch is tiny in terms of data, coming in at only 492MB.

Players on the PlayStation 4 shouldn't have expected anything amazing from firmware update 9.60, to be sure.

Open and Closed parties received a variety of improvements, fixes, and adjustments with the March 23rd updates.
