Playstation 4 Firmware 1.60 is coming very soon !

PS4 Update

Even though Sony did not officially announce the PS4 Firmware 1.60 yet, there are already some rumours about an upcoming PS4 Firmware Update 1.60.

It is known that currently just a few Headsets are working with the Playstation 4 and that some official PS4-certified Headsets are being released pretty soon.
But what has the new Firmware to do with those Headsets? Well, I will explain this in the following part…

The Headset

If we take a closer look at the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset by Sony Computer Entertainment, then we can see in the description of it, that we need a Playstation 3 or Playstation 4 running the Firmware 4.20 or 1.60, respectively.

The release for this Headset is set due to end of January 2014, which means that there will be a new PS4 Firmware in the next 7 days, cause the January ends in less than 7 days.

It does not state which features the new FW 1.60 will offer, but it seems obvious that it will be necessary for those official Headsets for the Playstation 4.

PS4 + PS Vita

While we are looking at the new Playstation 4 Firmware 1.60, we might want to keep in mind that the Second-Screen feature of the Playstation Vita checks the version of the Playstation 4 and the Playstation Vita, and therefore can deny the access to the Playstation 4 Link features, because a Playstation 4 running Firmware 1.60 will, most likely, need an updated Playstation Vita, so Sony can kill two birds with one stone.

The Playstation 4 Firmware 1.52 forces the Playstation Vita to update to Firmware 3.01 (or higher), otherwise the feature can not be used.

Since we get the Playstation 4 Firmware 1.60, we might can expect a Playstation Vita Firmware 3.10. Stay tuned, because I have got a feeling that the new Firmwares will drop earlier than we would like them to drop.

    Well, that sux, I just got my Vita hacked on 3.01 and use it with my PS4 when my son is playing on the Wii U… Now I have to hope that my exploit makes it through the next firmware upgrade, or lose PS4 connectivity

      Well U have only one option just go and buy another Vita.

        I think you should buy a FAT PSP. These one do the exact same things as an hacked Vita do. RIght now, the only thing avalaible are what the PSP was already doing.

          I have a FAT PSP, bought and hacked it day one. It’s old and scratched and has strange dark spots in the screen. If I were to spend money, it wouldn’t be on another FAT PSP

    I was thinking that sony had took too long to release a ps vita update. At least let’s hope that it’s not just a “system stability upgrade” and Sony adds new useful features in the update.

      if it is a change to the .01 to with the firmware number, than it is but if it changes as a .1 then it will include minor features.

    is this supposed to be the new pulse elite headphones, if so where and when can I by them in America.

    Here’s hoping for Turtle Beach headphone support. Mine ran for over 200 bucks so I’m not too keen about buying a set just for the PS4 logo when the hardware is absolutely no different


    1. Ricky D’s avatar

      And sorry for the double post, but my headphones support 7.1 surround, but the PS4 still only supports 5.1????
