    How to download Firmware 1.50 before launch and be ready to update your PS4

    The day-one patch adds numerous features including online multiplayer, PlayStation Vita Remote Play, party chat, and much more. Without this system 1.50 patch, your PlayStation 4 will be quite limited.

    On November 15, the PlayStation Network will likely overwhelmed, making it difficult to get that day-one patch leaving you looking at a downloading screen. However, you can miss that boredom by downloading the patch to a USB key right now, plug it into your PS4, and be ready to install instantly.

    1. Create a folder on your USB storage device. This is where you'll stash the system update.
    2. Create a "PS4" folder. Inside that folder, create another folder named "UPDATE."
    3. Download system update 1.50, and save it in the "UPDATE" folder.
    4. Save the file with a new name: "PS4UPDATE.PUP."

    When you get your PlayStation 4:

    1. Make sure your PlayStation 4 is turned off.
    2. Connect the USB storage device to your PlayStation 4, and press the power button for at least 7 seconds. The PlayStation 4 will start in Safe Mode.
    3. Select "Update System Software."
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the update.

    If your PlayStation 4 doesn't recognize the 1.50 system file, make sure that the folder and file names are correct.

    Good lookin' out, BP.

    Just a note, the folder names must be all capital letters, as BP has demonstrated.
