Sony sprung the smallest slither of PlayStation 4 firmware update v4.00 news this week, confirming that a beta for the big update will commence next month – but stopping short of announcing any features. It's been quite a while since we last got a major system software refresh for the Japanese giant's flagship format – v3.50 launched in April, bringing friend request notifications and PC Remote Play with it – so it begs the question: what are you hoping is on the docket this time?
Folders have been a frequent request since the launch of the console, but it's amazing to think that external hard drive support is being overlooked as well. We're pretty confident that this new firmware update will quietly pave the pathway for PlayStation VR and potentially the PS4K – or Neo – but we'll have to wait and see on that front. The ability to change PlayStation Network usernames seems more like a networking headache, so is unlikely to feature in this latest update.
But is there anything else that you want? PSone Classics support would be welcomed by this author – especially if Trophies were included. And then there's more simple stuff, like the ability to create custom wallpapers, for example – or better filtering options for the Library tool. Talk us through your dream list of updates in the comments section below, and we'll of course keep you updated on any announcements or rumours as they break.
