    The PS4 update 1.71 is now available for download and weighs in at 194mb and the patch notes were simple:

    "System software stability during use of some features has been improved."

    As well as bug fixes for stability issues SHAREfactory was added which is a video editing suite for the inbuilt game DVR as well as an option to turn off HDCP which allows video capture over HDMI.
    There was also some changes for the Dualshock 4 inlcuding the ability to change the brightness level of the lightbar as well as a fix for the vibration issue which turned off the controllers vibrate function every time the console was turned off, this has now been resolved so you can now feel a buzz everytime you play!

    There were some other issues that have been fixed such as uploading gamesaves to the cloud, the PS4 will upload gamesaves without requiring the you to manually overwrite previous saves. Also the part chat limit has been raised from 8 to 16 players now, which is great news!
