A little over a month ago Sony released the latest firmware update for the PlayStation 4. The update until now was a optional update, so if you never got around to it and want to play some games on PSN you will need to update to version 2.57. [break].[/break]Here is a little info from the source.


Following the release of his PS4 file browser and the announcement of code execution, developer CTurt also made public the PS4 open source SDK. As the developer has mentioned it does not have much use yet but hopes that other developers will reach out and lend a hand. The Git is there for those wanting to take a look and I must say that I am pleased that these revelations about Sony's current gen system has been made public. Always great to follow news like this that I'm sure we all enjoy.

I just wrote this article about his file browser and other tools and now THIS!! Developer CTurt has announced via his Twitter feed that he has code execution on the freaking PlayStation 4. What does this mean for you? Honestly I don't know. Does this mean the PS4 is hacked? I still don't know. Will this mean homebrew... even past firmware version 1.76? Hey enough of the questions! I still don't know but... reading his responses to his announcement he is wanting to [break].[/break]write a homebrew loader. Oh yeah baby.

As mentioned in the title this is a work in progress but something definitely worth sharing. Developed by twisted0ne1989 the video below showcases a project he is working on called Remote Play PC. The project seems to be coming along very well and supports various controllers as well as mapping. There is a bit of lag to deal with as mentioned by the developer but I'm sure future updates will address that any other issues. I just must say that so far so good.

It has been a while since we had last seen a PlayStation 4 update. One would've hoped that with such a long wait we would at the very least see some additions to Sony's new gen console. But alas we are once again met with the system stability dribble. Only good news for those who don't auto update their console is that [break].[/break]this is not a mandatory update. So if you get home and feel the need to get your online gaming on, you wont need to update if you not feeling up to it.
