PS4 System Update 1.60 Goes Live Today


The next update to the PS4 firmware will go live tonight bringing the system to 1.60. It seems it will be bringing support for the PULSE and the PULSE-Elite Edition Wireless headphones.

Sony will also be introducing a new headset The Gold Wireless Headset, which will work on your PS3, PS4 and Vita. It’s got 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound and retails at $99.99.


In February there will be a companion app for the Gold Wireless Headset and the Pulse Elite Edition for the PS4, which developers can create custom modes for their games. Sucker Punch will be taking advantage of this for Infamous: Second Son, so look for that in the future.

Finally I wanted to mention that the PSN Mobile App for Iphone and Android has been updated to 1.6 as well. They have added a Live Streaming option, so from your phone you can see who’s streaming from their PS4 and watch on The app has also been updated to coincide with this. I’ve done it a few times and it works well.

If there are anymore major changes in the update I will updated the post later.

Are you excited about the headsets now working with the PS4? What is the change you would like to see in the next update? I hope we get to have Media Servers on it. Let us know what you would like to see in the comments below.

    Great update, but I don’t use any of those (headset / companion app).
    Oh well.. I still have to get a PS4 anyway aha 😉

    I haven’t bought a headset due to the price in the past. Knowing there would be a separate companion app for sound settings would make me more inclined to purchase. I still would like to see how many actual games will support that or if only the first party studios do.

    Excellent update. Now… just add the other 5-9 lines of code that allow ANY Bluetooth headsets to work.

    It’s like they only decided to update the OS so they could sell some headsets, and possibly once their headset sales return to normal they’ll open BT to any headset.

  • Yeah, I don’t see why we can’t use something else for a headset.
