After being in beta for a few weeks now Sony has announced that the 4.0 Firmware update for the PlayStation 4 will be hitting tomorrow September 13. The 4.0 update brings many new and useful features to the PS4 including Folders, new ways to sort your library, more customization options for your profile, HDR (High Dynamic Range) for all PS4 consoles, and more.

In anticipation of the release of PS4 Pro on November 10, 2016, we’re adding a number of features that will support the system’s ability to output high-resolution content. This update will enable the following on PS4 Pro:

I’ve had the 4.0 update for a few weeks now and I can say Folders have made it much easier to get to the games I want and the new in game quick menu is fast and easy to use as well. You can check out the blog post for more info and let us know in the comments what 4.0 update you’re excited for.
