Today’s PlayStation update makes a number of changes to the PS4 system software, helping one group of gamers in a big way.
This week’s PS4 System Software Update 9.04 is live and PlayStation has made sure that certain fans know what it does.
As many will have read this week, Cyberpunk 2077 has launched on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, bringing players back to the game.
This is due to the struggles of the last-gen versions of the game, which were seen as unplayable for many.
PS4 System Software Update 9.04
The new next-gen update changes that for those with access to PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, but it also had some serious side-effects for others. Having downloaded patch 1.5 for Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4, many gamers who owned the Disc Version were unable to play. They were hit by a Corrupted Disc error, leaving them stuck without any kind of access.
The good news is that today’s PS4 9.04 patch fixes that issue, with PlayStation confirming as much in a new message to console owners: “We are aware of an issue with the disc version of Cyberpunk 2077 not launching on PS4 after installing the latest game patch. We plan to release a system update for PS4 tomorrow, Feb 19th (PST) to address the issue. We thank you for your patience.”
This is now live to download, with CD Projekt Red adding this to the announcement: “There’s a software update for PS4 live now. It addresses the issue with the disc version of Cyberpunk 2077 not launching on PS4 after installing the latest game patch. Please make sure to update your system.”
Gamers have already started sharing footage from them playing on PlayStation 4 consoles, revealing that today’s new PS4 update fixes the Disc Edition problems. And for those who have not seen the new PS4 update pop up on their system, there is a good chance that it has been launched an optional patch, due to it focusing on Cyberpunk 2077.
Meanwhile, Sony released the usual patch notes for the System Software Patch, telling fans that “This system software update improves system performance.”
No more information is expected to be shared on the subject unless more issues are encountered on PS4 consoles. Cyberpunk’s latest update is available for everyone to download across PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms, and includes a number of improvements. It’s seen the game return to the Steam Charts this week, albeit, with only a fraction of those who bought the game in 2021.
