The Plex app is now out for PlayStation 3 and 4 owners. The very useful app that is known on many devices including Vizio Smart TV's makes its way to consoles as a free to download app. The only downside that I see is that many are upset that in order to use the app one has to be a Plex Pass subscriber. Now to me, as somebody [break][/break]that has never used the service or the app, this does not seem so free at all. Reading the comments via the source below one can see that many are upset that a 8 gen console like the PS4 does not 'ship' with such features from purchase. (*cough* DLNA *cough*) What is your thoughts?

After the release of PlayStation 4 firmware Masamune, yes they named it, many were hit with the bug that affected the newly added Reset Mode feature. The bug, which was fixed in firmware update 2.01, only affected those who turned said feature on. Sony has now announced yet another update, version 2.02, is on its way so one can assume that further bugs have been squashed post 2.00. Not much to see here [break].[/break]except the usual stability dribble, but just a heads up to those who might want to let others beta test it before updating your console.

After the release of PlayStation 4 firmware 2.00 many had issues with the update. One been the newly added Rest Mode, that if turned on would allow the system to enter sleep mode and never wake up until one resets the console. So as word spread like wildfire on the webs many just made sure to switch the new feature off. Well... lets hope that this is the thing of the past as Sony has just rolled out firmware 2.01 [break].[/break]for the console that fixes this rather annoying bug. No official changelog available yet but I will update our thread containing all updates to the console once available.

Yes, you read it correctly, the PS4 finally received YouTube support. I was a bit surprised myself to learn that it took Sony an entire year to add YouTube to the PS4. Alas, now we can share our gameplay directly to YouTube as well as watch all the YouTube videos our hearts desire. Simply download the app from the PlayStation Store.

Developer SKFU made a very interesting post a few days ago on his blog regarding PS4 firmware 2.0. He managed to get access to debug settings on his retail console. Although at the moment you cannot do anything with it, it is great news to see findings like these on the new console. SKFU also mentions that he managed to [break].[/break]get some readable code, so lets hope there is something useful in there.

Has the PS4 been hacked? That is the question that is being asked today after two developer Nas & Proxima have taken the recent concept of PS Vita webkit exploit to the PS4 with firmware v1.76. At this time it's unconfirmed what this exploit will allow hackers to have access to on the console. However this is exciting news as it does allow developers to learn more about the console. This exploit is unlikely to be of use to end user's at this point and thus will not magically bring for instances a PS4 CFW. [break]..[/break] This exploit is good for the PS4 hacking community but what the exploit can achieve is something that will take some investigating by various developers before we get a clear picture, on what can be achieved by the exploit.. The bad news is this will most likely be patched in the upcoming v2.00 update that was announced recently. So stay tuned as this story is sure to progress over the next days and weeks, we will bring you all the latest details and what this means for the future of the PS4 Community as this evolves.
