Sony: PS4 Firmware 2.0 Launch “Just Round The Corner”, Explains How Free PS Plus Games Are Selected Each Month

PS4 Reaches 100 Million

At GamesCom 2014, Sony announced details regarding PlayStation 4 firmware 2.00 and stated that it will arrive in Fall 2014 i.e. will launch in between September 22 and December 21. Holiday Season 2014 is just about to start but still we haven’t heard anything from Sony regarding exact release date of PlayStation 4 firmware 2.0.


PlayStation Europe Blog Manager Fred Dutton did provided some information when fans can expect to see launch of PlayStation 4 firmware 2.0, “Just Round The Corner” said Fred.

“I can’t comment on new hardware features today, other than to say that [updates] are always in the works – as previously announced there’s a big PS4 update just round the corner that we’ll be talking more about soon.”

Last week well known industry insider Tidux stated that PlayStation 4 firmware 2.0 was scheduled to launch just before Evolution’s PS4 exclusive racing title, DriveClub, but Game Director Paul Rustchynsky clarified that, “it’s just a rumor” and there is no truth to it.

Lastly, Fred Dutton also explained the process of selecting PlayStation Plus Free Games for each month:

“We have a global PS Plus team who select the games every month. I’m afraid I can’t comment on exactly why they choose particular titles, other than to say they do their very best to pick a diverse line-up of quality games over the three platforms.”

“Of course, not all games appeal to all gamers, but there’s some really cool stuff in this month’s selection. Pix the Cat is ridiculously addictive and made by a scarily talented team with a great pedigree, Spelunky is one of the best platformers of the last 10 years and Rainbow Moon is a cracking RPG. As for Batman – I appreciate it’s 5 years old, but [in my honest opinion] I’d also argue it’s the best game in the series.”

PS4 Firmware 2.0 will add wide range of fan requested features such as ability to share gameplay videos on YouTube, Share Play feature which allows online co-op gameplay of games even if your friend doesn’t have a copy of the game in question and remote controlling PlayStation 4 titles over internet.
