PS4 has received the new in these hours firmware update 9.04a system update that Sony has also released to fix the problem encountered with Cyberpunk 2077as well as officially making the usual unidentified “system performance improvements”.
In fact, much of this update should be about the problem with the PS4 version of Cyberpunk 2077 on disk, which when starting after patch 1.5 would show an error message about “data corrupted” and the like. In this regard, Sony had published a tweet in the past few hours with the warning of a new system update coming to solve the problem.
The firmware update, according to what is reported by various reports, should be available in these hours: the official description speaks of “system performance improvements”but it is the classic definition that Sony uses for all minor updates to the console firmware.
Considering that at the same time CD Projekt RED warned of the release of the update, it is reasonable to think that it is largely a fix for the problem detected on the PS4 disc version of Cyberpunk 2077. The fact that a problem detected in a game requires a system update for a console is a rather rare case, so maybe we are waiting for more precise information on what happened in this regard. In the meantime, we refer you to our analysis on the next gen version of the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S.
