Playstation 4 Firmware 1.60 is coming very soon !

PS4 Update

Even though Sony did not officially announced 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.
