Now, when PS4 system update 1.62 released, we find out what does it actually do? What does it actually means for you?

As stated earlier, it is a 336MB patch.  After installation, we checked if there is any change in graphics, sound or anything else. Basically, we were looking for something big change to happen, may be because of the hype anyhow we are disappointed to tell that we didn’t see any change on the console’s UI, which led us to believe that we’re looking at one of the usual small “tweaking” patches released to improve performance here and there. Since no details on the specifics were provided by Sony Computer Entertainment. We think it might improve you gaming experience by removing some of the very common PS4 problems from turning off of the device to freezing of the PS4 due to overheating. It may also be enhanced battery life. In any case it’s there in the out and even if it addresses tiny glitches, we recommend a download and installation of the beast.
