PS4 Update 1.51 is live

The latest update for the PS4 went live last night.  Consoles that were in standby mode should have automatically downloaded it and provided some minor tweaks to the UI among other things.  According to Playstation.Blog, some stability issues were resolved as well as “minor refinements to elements of the system UI (such as clearly indicating when a user downloads a game and a game patch at the same time) have been introduced”.

The console’s launch, for the most part, went fairly smooth.  PSN was up and down the majority of the weekend, but even with that, most of the online features were still working such as friends, live streaming and party chat.  Multiplayer was a bit unstable for some games (notably Battlefield 4, which at the time this is posted is still unresolved) and the Facebook-style friend feeds were also up and down.  Most of these issues have been resolved as of Monday the 18th.

The PS4 came out on November 15th and sold over a million units within the first 24 hours.  It is the fastest selling console of all time.  The Xbox One is set to release on November 22nd, so we’ll see if Microsoft can challenge Sony for that record.
