PS4 Firmware Update 1.71 Out Today

Sony has released firmware update 1.71 for PS4.  The latest update can be downloaded now in North America and will roll out in other territories later today.

Coming in at only 194mb, the update will stabilize many of the new features added to the PS4 in the last firmware update.  1.70 introduced the world to ShareFactory, the ability to dim the Dualshock 4 LightBar and the ability to turn off the HDCP restrictions on the HDMI port.

Like with all firmware updates, you’ll be unable to log into PSN until 1.71 is downloaded and installed on your console.
