To quote from PlayStation EU Community Coordinator LordRoss on this mandatory update:
System Software version 4.70 for the PlayStation 4 has been released today. This is a mandatory update which adds a new match list view to display match results for anyone who participates in a tournament.
Main features in version 4.70 update
To quote from PSX-Sense.nl via JDubled, roughly translated:
- [Tournaments] A new match list view is available to display match results for any who participate in a tournament
- This system software update improves the quality of the system performance.
"However, there are also a few minor changes, such as the shortcut to the PlayStation Store. This has got a new icon, which is more modern and just 'Store'.
This new icon style continues with PlayStation Vue and Video (both available only in the United States) and PlayStation Now."
Imguralbumbot also points out the PlayStation Plus icon has been updated in PS4 System Software v4.70.
As always, we'll update this article once PS4 developers examine it and report feedback on what it patches... until then it's advised NOT to update your PlayStation 4 Firmware if you wish to use PS4 GameSharing Methods, run homebrew, Linux and game backups at some point in the future.
