PS4 1.75 Update Adding 3D Blu-Ray Support Released



As reported last week, the PS4 firmware has now been updated to 1.75, adding the long awaited support for 3D Blu-Rays.

Full changelog from Sony:

Playback of Blu-ray 3D™ is now supported.

Sound quality has been improved during 1.5x playback with Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD videos.

System messages previously displayed on the top-right corner of the screen are now displayed on the top-left corner of the screen.

[Featured Content] has been added to (Settings) > [System] > [Automatic Downloads and Uploads]. When this setting is enabled, featured content from the PlayStation®Store is automatically downloaded while the PS4™ system is either powered on or in standby mode. To download while in standby mode, go to (Settings) > [Power Save Settings] > [Set Functions Available in Standby Mode], and then turn on [Connect to the Internet].

Although many argue that 3D is a marketing-driven initiative that has hardly set the world ablaze, its inclusion is still welcome. Now let’s hope Sony get to work adding DLNA support, as the PS4’s qualifications as a multimedia device are still lacking.
