Main features in version 4.01 update

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

Sony released the PS4 4.0 update last month, and includes a refreshed user interface alongside custom folders. Furthermore, the firmware update added HDR support on the PS4 console.

High Dynamic Range

We’re really excited that 4.00 will allow all PS4 consoles, including the new slimmer PS4 and PlayStation®4 Pro to support High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging technology. HDR enables the reproduction of brightness and darkness while realizing a much wider range of colours. Users who own an HDR-compatible TV will be able to enjoy supported games and other entertainment content with visuals that are more realistic, strikingly vivid and truer to the way the human eye sees the real world.

HDR support for all standard PS4 console, was announced during Sony’s PlayStation Meeting last month alongside the PS4 Pro announcement.
