A new PlayStation 4 system update has been made available in all regions today, improving the quality of system performance

The new PlayStation 4 4.72 update is only 300MB big, so it won’t take long to download. As it usually is with unannounced firmware updates, the 4.72 update doesn’t seem to introduce anything else other than system performance improvements..

Main features in version 4.72 update

This system software update improves the quality of the system performance.

The previous system update released a couple of weeks back, also introduced system stability fixes and improvements. The 4.70 update, which has been released back in May, also introduced some very small changes, such as new UI icons, including the PS Store icon.

The most recent big PlayStation 4 system update, update 4.50, introduced plenty of new features, such as external HDD support, the ability to set Custom Wallpapers and more.

It’s easy to upgrade the HDD that came with your PS4, but if you’re still looking for more storage space on the console, we’ve got you covered. With this update, you have the option to store content to an external HDD. Just plug a USB 3.0 HDD into your PS4, and voilà, you now have more space on the console.

This is compatible with HDDs up to 8TB in size. You can download and install applications directly to your extra storage, and the saved contents are easily manageable through the settings menu. Also, all the applications saved in the external HDD will appear in the Content Launcher of the Home Screen so it’s easy to keep track of what apps you launched recently.
