PlayStation 4 Firmware 1.71 Released

Sony has released PlayStation 4 firmware update 1.71 following a message on Twitter…

It’s a 194MB download and has a, not very detailed, changelog of “System software stability during use of some features has been improved.”

Thankfully, DualShockers has dug a little deeper and found two bugs that have been fixed…

  1. The issue that deactivated the DualShock 4′s vibration every time the console was turned off (or put in standby mode) has now been solved. I hadn’t noticed this but, come to think of it, I haven’t noticed much vibration from the controllers.
  2. The problem with uploading save games to the cloud (which brought up the message “Saved data with the same name was uploaded from another PS4″) has been fixed as well. And, as someone who definitely suffers from this problem, HALLELUJAH!

The update is rolling out now but may be available at different times, depending on your region.

Hates people complaining unnecessarily and believes you should always offer solutions – yes, I’m looking at all the Battlefield 4 haters.
