Hey guys, if i were to buy a ps4 from a retail store right now, what would be the initial firmware? Neither pro nor slim. The original ps4 console

Thanks for the info, but i was looking for a ps4 without bundle, hoping to stay below 4.05, so i was asking if the ones in retail stores come with which firmware

PS4 v4.05 OFW and below is safe, and unless Sony updated them since the last shipments reports have confirmed the following:
  • PS4 Slim ships with 3.55 OFW stock
  • PS4 Pro ships with 3.70 OFW stock
  • Uncharted 4 PS4 Bundle ships with 3.55 OFW stock

Aren't the 1.76 ps4's like totally rare, if I were to wait on a lower than 4.05 firmware, i may just get a future chance for homebrew, i am in no rush to play ps4 games, enjoying my ps3 games, catching up to latest releases.

They are harder to find these days than 3.55 / 3.70 PS4's yep... if you don't need a 1.76 console right now (mostly only developers do, since there aren't any backup game loaders yet) it may be easier to shoot for one on 4.05 or below.
